We saw sea turtles, sea snakes, gigantic sea cucumbers, a puffer fish, an octopus, and lots more. The visibility was amazing – up to 30m. And A. and I are now certified open water divers!

Our nine-day trip through southwestern Thailand also featured rainforest:

Sa Nang Manora Forest Park, Phang Nga

Incredible karst limestone formations:
