Although we could have stayed for longer we decided to make a move south and get back on an island for a few days.
We packed up and jumped on a bus to Phuket, eating our leftover cheese and crackers for breakfast along the way.
It took about two hours to arrive at the bus depot, by then we had chosen to follow the masses and check out Ko Phi Phi; The film location of the beach and world renowned as paradise on earth.
We jumped on the boat from Phuket and arrived on the pier of Phi Phi in just over an hour.
First impressions were not great and failed to be improved. Accommodation was as thought: over priced, the streets are packed with people, and the place smells of sewage.
The island has no roads as you can explore it by foot quite easily, however it manages to home over 200 hotels, 100 restaurants, an endless supply of tattoo parlours, shops, and dive centers, and an insurmountable amount of people.
We managed to find a room, it's basic with no hot water and just a fan and yet it's the most expensive room of our travels. It does have English cable TV!?!
We headed out to the beach and from a distance it is un doubtably beautiful, the bay is a mix of greens and blues, the sand is white and soft and for the time being the sun is shining.
We walked along the sand dodging the broken glass and Chang bottles and past the beachfront bars advertising tonight's themed parties. It seems like we getting old before our time, but this place is full of teenagers who just want to get wasted because 'it's the thing to do'. The lack of any atmosphere or anything of any interest to us resulted in us grabbing a quick dinner and walking around some of the quieter areas of the island before making our way back to our room for the night.
