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!

... coast and runs perpendicular to the mainland. The island is mainly populated by Muslim Thais which makes for a different experience to the rest of Thailand as we listen to the call to prayer by the local Muezzin. This gives us a taste of what’s to come as we travel south towards Malaysia.
Like Koh Phi Phi, the tide is very high during the ...
After a pretty rough boat ride from mainland Krabi, we arrive in late afternoon on Koh Phi Phi. The weather is very heavy and stormy but an overnight storm clears the skies for the next day.
