Thailand celebrated National Children’s day on 11th January and Serenity joined the celebrations. Children’s Day in Thailand or ‘Wan Dek’ is a magical day where families come together to spend time with children and do fun things.

Phuket’s Children can enjoy tours of official government buildings, military aircraft and ships, with many businesses providing fee entry to local attractions and places of interest.

To mark the occasion, the Serenity team took this opportunity to give something back to our local community:

Day trip to Coral Island

Elad Kushnir   |   October 2, 2012   |   Expert Travel Tips   |   0 Comments

Coral Island is one of those activities that should be missed. Located 10 minutes away from Serenity via a boat trip that we will be happy to arrange.

The beautiful pristine waters are a perfect place to chill for an entire day. There are two main beaches on the Island, Long Beach and Banana Beach. We recommended that you spend your day on Banana beach which is not overcrowded like Long-Beach.

The water is clear and full of beautifully colorful fish which swim up to you offer them some bread. The beach is prefect for snorkeling, chilling on the beach with a glass of wine, and late afternoon lunch, and grabbing an afternoon snooze under one of the picturesque palm trees.

This beach is great in both low and high seasons and is perfect for all types of visitors.

Book your trip now via our Yim Siam front desk service. Ask about our day trip picnic basket while your at it :).
