Southern Thailand

Day 2: Actually day two started on the bus ride down somewhere in the middle of Thailand. We then boarded the ferry and took a scary ride across raging sea’s too the island. I’m not normally sea sick, but I got a little uncomfortable on this trip.

Finally we arrived at the Island in the early afternoon where we found our bungalow in Gypsy village for 400 bhat a night, with no hot water, no AC, and a manual flush toilet, oh and it had a large selections of bugs, gecho’s and pink. Finally we had reached our destination. We had some expensive Thai food at a safe restaurant high on a hill above the Tsunami level. Some excellent Thai food later we where ready to experience a little of town.

Phi Phi island is one of the premier tourist locations (to our dismay) and is filled with everything you could want from fire shows, to boxing rings, to diving trips and more. Needless to say you will read in some places that Ko Phi Phi is still in the process of rebuilding and it may be difficult to find places to stay and such. This is not true anymore, its probably 98% back in business with probably almost 100 eateries and loads of places to stay from super cheap (200 bhat)to super expensive.
