Farewell Phi Phi

Phi Phi Island was the most ‘island scenic’ of our time in Thailand, but all good things have to end some time (especially when its a holiday and you need money to continue on!). Here’s a series of final shots for now from Phi Phi. Tomorrow its the final destination of Thailand.

Watch the Signs

(first image shot on the other side of main Phi Phi tourist village) One thing I love about visiting other countries (or sometimes locally) is seeing notices and signs that are from another language base, translated into English. Now I’m by no means making fun of the translators (I cant translate into any other language […]

View Point

A new morning had me heading up to a spot I had seen the previous day when venturing outside camp – View Point. Unsurprisingly, I later learnt that view point is just a generic term used on the island for various walks that led to a  view. I’ll always remember this one as View Point […]

Outside the Resort

Three quick snaps from our first venture outside of the Phi Phi resort area.   Nothing like the big cities, but bikes still played a massive role in the local communities.       A very cool, but massively out or proportion map.

The Resort – Phi Phi

Landing at the resort, the view was stunning. Clear aqua ocean, white sand, palm trees. We were warmly greeted, and as with all the other places we stayed, welcomed with a cool sweet beverage. Being at the flash end of the holiday, we took on an upgrading offer and temporarily made the beach front bungalow […]

New Day New Island – Koh Phi Phi

Leaving Krabi, we hopped on a ferry destined for the beautiful Phi Phi Islands. Hot as usual, I struggled sitting on the reflective white deck for 40min’s before we took off, but once we started moving, the cool breeze was great! The ride was somewhere around 2 hours, with cheap Singer’s being sold in the […]

Boat Tour Thailand

For one of our days staying in Krabi, we booked a day trip out to some of the smaller islands. Heading out via longboat, we had three main stops – one for snorkling, one for lunch and one for a few hours swimming.     One thing that became apparent in Thailand, starting with this […]

The Monkeys of Krabi

Up to this point of the holiday I had not seen any ‘in the wild’ monkeys. I did see a number of pet/trick/show monkeys both in Bangkok and Chiang Mai – but I don’t overly like seeing them chained or roped up as they were in these areas. Walking around the township I came across […]

Krabi Seaside

Saying farewell to Chiang Mai and the Northern region of Thailand, we boarded an early morning plane and flew to the west coast, southern side of Thailand – aimed for Krabi (the seaside part of it). Landing in Phuket, and hopping on a transfer coach for several hours, we arrived at out destination. After a […]
