Spent the day travelling from Koh Phangnan to Koh Phi Phi, taxi, boat, bus, another bus then another boat we were travelling from 6am - 6pm. Once we landed on Phi Phi we walked around trying to find accommodation and found a bungalow for the night but only with a fan. But we decided to stay here and find something better in the morning so we didn't have to lug our bags around with us. We found HC Andersons with TV, air con, balconey etc. and free wifi - bonus! We went Kayaking round to Monkey Bay which was wicked i was really happy there because all the monkeys are free to roam around but they are used to human contact so you can go and sit with them and they will take drinks and food from you! Then we went round to the next bay but we capsized the kayak and i thought i was going to be eaten by sharks so we headed back with me shaking like a leaf - what a wuss! It was a really strong current we had to fight against to get back so was hard work but we made it back eventually!
Met up with Ollie and Sharpy again. Went on a boat trip round the island - oh my god we nearly died! We took a longtail boat around the island but the sea was really choppy so it was a really rough ride! And we nearly toppled over in the waves on more than one occasion! We got completely soaked by the spray coming over the boat and because it was over cast we were cold most of the day. Went to Maya bay which is where The Beach was filmed which was a lush bay with pure white sand - paradise. We went snorkelling but didn't see any sharks! We didn't see the sunset either because it was so over cast so all in all a great day! We did go to monkey bay again though which was good and one of the monkeys stole a can of coke and came and sat next to me to drink it - wicked - i love them! I reakon i could squeeze a baby one in my back pack!
Overall we really liked Phi Phi there are some good bars, reggae bar was good they have a thai boxing ring where first the thai fight then anyone in the bar is welcome to challenge their mates so of course Mat got in the ring and now Sharpy has 2 black eyes ... oops! We just spent most of the time chilling out on the beach which was lovely and met up with Cornellius and Ollie and Sharpy again.
