Looking around Phi Phi you can see that much of it is still being reconstructed. Tonsai is tacky and after a few days I grew to dislike it. Long beach was nice but really dead this time of the year so most evenings we would either walk over to Tonsai or get a boat over. There is plenty of life their in the evening. We seen some impressive fireshows at the beach.
We decided to do some rock climbing here and did a half day with Spider Monkey. It was great and could see that we were improving from our time in Krabi. There was a really annoying girl there who was more concerned with how she looked and started crying when she couldn't do some of the climbs. On our last day here we hired a long boat man to take us over to see Maya bay where the beach from the movie is. It is beautiful there but maybe the beach itself is a little destroyed by tourists. We had sometime there and pretty soon the big tours shoved off and we had the beach almost to ourselves. Our long boat man was in no hurry and was quite content snoozing in his hammock.
Overall, I was a little disappointed with Ko Phi Phi, Tonsai is a bit too much and it was a little too quite on the other beaches. There are some really beautifull spots here though. Tommorrow we catch to ferry to Phuket.
