Here are some pictures of our trip to Thailand. All of the ICEX interns in Seoul have spent six days relaxing in paradise-like beaches, from the pool to the beach and from the beach to the pool, drinking shakes for less than a dollar, and besides, Alex and I, got our diving license (the PADI Scuba Diver) 😀
Overall, the trip was great, although it was so hot and humid all the time. I imagined Thailand much more “Asian”. Sometimes I thought I was in South or Central America instead of in Asia.. I guess it must be because of the tropical weather;)
The six ICEX interns, on the Thai Airways airplane.
Taking the boat to Ton Sai Bay.
InPhra Nang Bay, a beach near Ton Say Bay, where we went by kayak (here is a map).
After Ton Sai Bay, we decided to move to a resort in Phi Phi Islands. Here’s a view of our island, Ko Phi Phi Don (picture by Jairo).
This is a good summary of our trip.
In front of Ko Phi Phi Lee, the island where the movie “The Beach” was filmed.
With Carlos at the same beach. The sign is kind of scary, isn’t it?
On the boat going to do diving.
With Alex and two Koreans we met diving.
We were lucky that it only rained one day. Anyway, the temperature was still like Malaga in august.
Back in Bangkok, the same heat but no beach. Here we are at the Grand Palace.

We had Mirinda in Spain long time ago, but they stopped selling it. In Thailand they still have it 😛
On a Tuk-Tuk, a kind of motorcycle with three wheels quite common in Southeast Asia.
Jairo playing Takraw with some locals.
Sunset at the Khao San Road market.
Back in Seoul, with a three-hour sleep and ready to work. On the bus, Alex and Jairo looked kind of tired:P
And if you want to see more pictures, all of them are here.
