After a few days in Krabi i got the boat to Phi Phi :) On the island there are no vechiles as it is sooo small, so i had to struggle with all my bags along the beach while everybody is sunbathing and looking relaxed while i struggle to high heaven with bags on sand and sweat trickling down my whole body. I finally arrive and dump my stuff. I headed back out into town for a little wander and to look at all the market stalls. All pretty small but it was awesome ...
... middle of the day and the party atmosphere was already full swing at the numerous beach bars. We selected the Ibiza beach bar for its nice deck chairs and spent the afternoon there, lounging in the sun and going in the water when it was too hot. At the end of the afternoon, the techno music started to be a bit tiring so we headed back to our hotel to refresh ourselves and get ready for the evening. We explored the maze of little streets ...
... we decided to head for a hostel which was a quarter of the price of their's but located right on the beach. At this stage we were used to cold showers, blocked communal toilets, 6 man dorms with no aircon and bamboo hut style accommodation where the door is left open all day. Our hostel was on the party beach with huge sound systems blaring out dance music until 3am in the morning so an early night over the next 3 days was out of the question.
We settled into ...
... Highlight: Some of the street food over here is rather questionable, but we all found chicken
nuggets to be the best bet at the end of the night. After recommending them to Chuck, he decided to give it a go. After sinking his teeth into one of these babies for the first time, one of them

... t a single word to decribe this island, all I can say is wow! It has got to be the most beautiful andl idyllic place I have ever had the pleasure to visit. It was definatley worth the scramble over the rocks to get to, even if it did mean a few cut toes and grazed knees. We spent about half an hour on the beach, soaking up its beauty and making sure we had photographic proof for the loved ones at home.

Room was spacious, decor was very Thai indeed yet nice and pleasing! Housekeeping attendant was attentive and cleant up all our mess from the night before! The small pool cum jacuzzi at the rooftop was a hidden gem, nobody seems to know about it as we seem to be the only one up there everytime!
Location wise, it's still not too far from Bangla Road or the beach.. probably about 5 to 10 min walk, rent a bike & everywhere would be near! Would definitely recommend this to other travellers! Great place for great value!
