On the third day on board Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas (LOTS), the bloggers did some wall climbing in the morning for exercise. This was followed by a Waltz dancing class before the ship docked in Phuket, Thailand, early noon.

There were a few Phuket land tour itineraries available from Royal Caribbean. The omy team followed bloggers, Philip, Estelle and Christine to the scenic Phi Phi Islands (หมู่เกาะพีพี).

To get there, we need to take an hour bus ride, followed by a few short boat rides. Much time was spend traveling. On the way to Phi Phi, we stopped by a reclining Buddha statue inside a lime cave.

After the cave, it was back on the water again, traveling by small boats to the Phi Phi Islands.

Estelle and Christine gamely changed to their bikinis for a dip in the sea together with the very happy Philip at James Bond Island. Their sacrifice was for us to shoot a snazzy Bond girls spoof starring the three bloggers for omy.sg’s Royal Caribbean site.

The Phi Phi Islands was a beautiful place to hang around. It’s a pity we did not have much time there as we still need to make the journey back on board LOTS.

By the time we made our way back to LOTS, the sky was dark. Exhausted, most of us tucked in early for the night.
