Flag of Thailand  ,

Well after the cunning escape from the Blue Andaman and the sunburnt ferry trip we (grant, alex and myself) arrived in Phi Phi.  Everyone had been telling us how busy and expensive Phi Phi was so I wasn't intending coming here at all.  However, its not like that really at all.  A room (the cleanest and nicest I have stayed in with TV the lot) is costing 17 quid a night and food etc is the same as all the islands.  Phi Phi is the current party capital of this side of Thailand and there are parties with fireshows, singing comps, nutella eating comps etc going on every night if you wish.  You can even drink free buckets (evil inventions that contain a half bottle of spirits in everyone; stick to beer!!) if you are prepared to get into the Thai boxing ring for a fight!!

Anyway, Phi Phi is really nice compared with Lanta.  It has a sort of European feel about it as you can walk around little streets with stalls etc.  Really nice after having to go everywhere by bike on Lanta.  It was pretty much wiped out in the Tsunami so they had a clean slate to start with which helps.  It can be pretty corny with Irish bars etc but also has some really nice beaches to just lie and read all day.

There are sexy women everywhere.  Me and Grant have made a pretty good tag team chatting them up.  I've even reverted about 10 years in my Scottish accent running around with him.  We've had a nice little group of friends here.  Last night we all went out for a posh meal (with wine and everything - unheard of in Thailand!!) and then to Hippies Bar, the Reggae Bar and finishing up in Carlitos.  After this me and Liz from Rossendale went down onto the beach with a couple of beers and this American couple joined us.  We were sitting there having a chat and stuff and next minute she starts stripping off to have sex with this bloke in front of us!!  Called it a day there and went back up to the street and told all the Thai boat taxi drivers to get themselves down onto the beach to see a bit of 'fucky fucky'.

Anyway, onwards and upwards I have to get a new Thai visa before making me way over to meet the boys so moving to Phuket tomorrow from where I can do a visa run.
