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!

As much as we loved that room of ours, when we noticed we weren't really resting as much as we had planed, we decided that we might as well not rest on the island where the nightlife is as crazy as it can get, by going back to Koh Phi Phi for 2 more ...
... struggling up some very steep gradients on our little mopeds. We stopped for some lunch at Kantiang beach, to enjoy some spicy salads and refreshing beer. From Kantiang until the border of the national park, we only stopped for monkey crossings (much to Amelia's dismay), or for taking pictures at view points. The heat was just about bearable, but on our way back, a much needed cold fresh coconut attracted us into a bar located on a cliff side overlooking Kantiang. Slurping away, ...
... fire shows and go to the beach party, but by our second bar, we met another couple, from Ireland (we were in an Irish bar) and ended up staying there until 3/4am. We started drinking buckets, and got pretty drunk. So we never even ended up going to the beach, but we will go tonight, and we had such a good laugh. They were both 24 so a little bit older, but they were a good laugh. We played them in beer pong too which was funny! We got so ...
