We are now in krabi, caught a boat from Ko Phi Phi took one and a half hours to get here. We got soacked on the boat but mark built a dam from our flipflops so that our bums didnt get wet! and it worked! legs wet bottoms dry so all good in thaihood,
UPDATE: Yesterday we went on a boat to visit all the Island around Ko Phi Phi. We went to misquito bay (stayed on boat!), sharks bay (snorkled here, dont worry didnt get mauled by any sharks. limbs still intact), maya beach - which is where the beach is filmed- well i reckon its just the beach bit because i didint see any jungle!!!, realy pretty beach though water is realy clear and sand is brilliant white(Groves should know what colour brilliant white is!!).THEN we went to monkey Beach!!! ..........OMG, didnt actually realise there was going to be monkeys chilllin eating melon on the actual beach, i was amazed! untill they chased us into the sea, was realy funny, ive never run so fast - got some realy good pictures of the mokeys to show everyone.
We stayed at Ko phi phi for 3 nights in the same acomodation, as its so busy realy difficult to find accomodation thats cheap!, we payed 1000 baht per night (20pound for both) which is so expensive but the cheapest we could find. it was like a little bungalow right on the beach front.Room was tidy, bathroom was strange the shower head was above the toilet but at least you could go to toilet at the same time i suppose(i didnt actually try that- should of though).
FOOD UPDATE: i can finally say that we ate a good meal last night, the first one since we left home.i lost my appetite from day one but im glad ive finally found it.
The island itself its realy beautiful, the beach is just like one on a postcard, ive never seen clearer sea or whiter sands its a shame theres so many tourists (i know we are tourists)its spoilt it abit.There lots of bars, and clubs the music doesnt stop untill 4am!!!!!. We went to a boxing bar and saw someone get knocked out!!.
you can still see some of the effects from the tsunami, there still rebuilding houses, we walked the island in about 2 hours, the opposite side to where we were staying seemed to have been affected worse, theres a memorial garden (only tiny) which had plaques of the people who lost there lives, pictures and letters from there families which realy upset me.
We are staying in a hostel in Krabi Town,called pak up. Its realy clean and modern, have to share toilets and showers so good luck to me.
Miss everyone, especially Reggie
