Where I stayed
Mr local dorms
Phi phi is very much a party place it was a bit like magaluf smells of sick and there are drunk people everywhere lol. There seemed to be a backpackers side and a holiday side more for families. You could even tell the difference between the beaches. We spent our first day on the beach chatting to a Canadian man and the night chatting to the people in our dorm, a few of them were unwell. The next day we took a very long walk to long beach at the other end of the island.. Half an hour of uphill and downhill trekking! It was lovely, the sea was so clear and a gorgeous colour. George loved all the fish swimming around us! I did not. We had a lovely day sunbathing and got a long tail boat back to the pier. We got ready and went out for a cocktail in a nice bar on the holiday side and watched a very good fire show. The guy did gangnam style with fire!!! Lol
We met my friend Lizzie that night who I worked with in Majorca. She brought an American guy out with her from we dorm. We ate street food had a good old chat and went to the same bar and watched the fire show.
But sadly that's the end of our happy memories in phi phi because later that night George got sick then I woke up at 4 am sick :( boo hiss, we were very ill and had to stay in bed the next day and night, neither of us could move
We hoped so much that we would feel better for our last day because we were supposed to be doing the maya bay plankton tour where "the beach" was filmed. We did wake up better but was very weak and I still wasn't feeling great at all with a temperature and both so dehydrated. We had to move room again in the morning too. Both so upset we missed maya bay but I supposed we can always come again in the future... Stupid illness making us miss the lit up plankton.
We made our way to Koh Lanta the next morning still feeling weak but much better... We could actually stand up for more than 30 seconds, yay!!
