We have been staying here a week now after only planning to stop one night. This place is amazing value for money, you're room is cleaned every day which does not always happen in the cheaper accommodation in Thailand and the family that run it are so sweet they really look after you. 10 out of 10!

It was slightly more melbournised than you would expect from a coffee shop ...
... for a chill. They do some great pizza on the island for 80p a slice, which fills a hole at lunch time. We headed back out at 7.30pm to meet Nicky and Graham for dinner. Only Nicky showed up as Graham was sick. This was a shame as we didn't get to say goodbye. Nicky left after dinner. Me and Noel stayed out to sample the notorious Phi Phi night life. We felt very old!!! Some of these girls were 16/17. We decided to embrace it and ordered a few famous buckets ...
... on where we had travelled in Thailand and the great and diverse time we’d had here.
The islands are pretty special places, both in their locations and spectacular landscapes, and we hope that even with increased popularity that they continue to be as unspoilt as they can be and that Ko Lanta especially remains a little secret hippy retreat for a while yet.
Goodbye Thailand, farewell mozzies and RIP camera no.1!!
... a massive budget. Even on Phi Phi there are cheaper local places to eat that you can find tucked amongst it all and every time we passed somewhere that was really busy with young travelers and checked the menu as you do, they were all crazy European prices. So I guess the fact that University places are now for the rich seems to translate down to what is affordable in what way to the Uni gap year students as well.
October House where we stayed was pretty decent. A good ...
