... much more crowded and looked a bit smaller. We posed for some photos and then went for a swim. Because we didn't have our phones it was hard to keep track of when we needed to head back to our boat. This time we managed to find an alternative way down to get to the boat, but it was really slippy and we got a bit cut/bruised. However probably nicer than the rope ladder.
When we got back to our hotel we decided to have a nap ...
... a strange cloud bank that it looks like it might just be a low cloud. But Cody and I have become self-proclaimed meteorologists after spending 4 days on the islands and we know better. It always comes in like a shear wall of water with winds that whip you around. 20 minutes later, it is gone. I want a picture of the boats at low tide so I walk out onto the sea bed. I am noticing little bubbles billowing up from the ground and I stand still. There are some weird ...
... hit this place. There wasa big picture board at the top showing how this view looked before the tsunami hit in 2004. Also there was a small shop at the top and the lady working in there was there the day it hit and she said she watched it all unfold but couldn't help from high up.
After around 1 hour sat up there we took the steps back down which took 5 minutes to reach our guesthouse. At least we had seen more of the island taking the longer way up.
... Wait, can I be incriminated for writing this? Will someone stop me at the Canadian border and say, "Hey, we read your blog, you're coming with us!" Yikes! Could somebody get back to me on this?!
And alcohol. Copious amounts sometimes. Oops. This was a tough decision. I spent several months not drinking here and found myself friendless! And a bit of a social pariah. It sucked. I decided to loosen off my war against alcohol for the sake of connecting. I'm okay ...
... the area a disaster zone. In two districts covering 95 villages temperatures plunged to 3 degrees Celsius. Frost was seen forming, and government agencies handed out blankets and sweaters, and warned the public to brace themselves for record low temperatures. Mercifully, this tropical belt has saved the Thais from extermination with a blessing of temperature in the high twenties.

TravelPod Member ReviewsPhi Phi Villa Resort Ko Phi Phi Don
The resort features bungalows right off the beach, with a central pool just away from the sea and only just outside the main slew of bars and restaurants. The location was great for having easy access to the night life while still being far enough from it that sleep was not disturbed noise. The facilities and the room were lovely! I would recommend the accommodation to others!
