Had Noppharatthara - Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park
Maya Bay, Krabi, Thailand
"As for me, I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it's not some place you can look for, 'cause it's not where you go. It's how you feel for a moment in your life when you're a part of something, and if you find that moment...it lasts forever." -Richard (Leonardo DiCaprio, The Beach)
I actually didn't watch The Beach until after we visited this island, so I didn't understand what all the hype was all about. Now, don't get me wrong. It's absolutely beautiful at first sight. I had an amazing feeling as we sailed into the bay, but that quickly changed after I saw the speedboats lined up parallel to the shore, the beach crowded with people and trash in the ocean—my feeling of paradise slipped away. If you haven't watched the movie, the premise is about a group of travelers who've found this paradise that they want to keep paradise by keeping it a secret from everyone else. It just seems ironic now with waves of boats ushering dozens of people in all day searching for a bit of paradise but instead find themselves having to watch where they walk or swim. Honestly, it wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the trash. Clean up, people. It's easy. Throw your waste in a trash can or take it off the island with you. Let's keep nature beautiful.
