Hey Guys,

We've been in Ko phi Phi for three days so far and we don't want to leave but its quite expensive so we will be moving on in the next two days! we are still treating this like a two week holiday but we will get out of that frame of mind when we run out of money ha ha! Phuket was pretty crap it was very package holidayish and also expensive, although it is high season so they can rack the prices right up! The main part of phuket is Patong which was like blackpool in the sun, we stayed further down the coast at a nicer beach and quiter area, got a room for 400 baht a night and hired a moped....don't worry maw it was fine!
We then took the ferry over to Ko phi phi, this place is paradise the pictures that we have taken won't even do it justice it is just a stunning part of the world and would highly recommend it, you can do the busy bar thing or just stay low key it is up to you. Yesterday we walked up to the view point where you can see right

Kata Noi Beach
over the island....amazing! Then we followed a sign to go down to another beach when I say it was trecherous I mean it was like a mix between I'm not a celebrity get me out of here and Indiana Jones! Gill was jumping about the jungle everytime anything moved I was grumpier than usual, at one point I couldn't see Gill for the mosquitoes that were covering her stumps...it was hilarious! When we finally got to the beach we got some refreshment and then made our way onto a long tail boat to take us back to the main beach. As we stepped onto the beach we were attacked by flesh eating monster ants, they weere trying to bury their heads under our skin it was LOVELY! Later that day we took a sunset boat trip to Phi Phi Lay which is where they filmed the beach, Gill snorkelled for the first time she finally conquered her fear of the water and she loved it, we went kayaking and visited monkey beach where there were monkeys, funny that! The sunset was unbelievable! We met a couple from Bedford and went out that night for some of those crazy whiskey buckets,

Hello!
Hello there you two. Really good to see you're having a top time. You'll be some colour when you come back! Loving the trunks Mitch! The pictures look amazing, just like postcards! Glad you're getting stuck into the snorkelling and diving. Its the same old back here, although our kitchen has been demolished and will be all shiney and new shortly. You'll be glad to know I'm hitting the gym this week so will be a svelte size 8 (!) very soon. Martha now on the rusks so will also soon be a size 8! Love uz and miss uz madly, Ash xxxxxx

Hey fellow travellers
Hey guys, Just did a random search for your travel blog whilst we are at Singapore airport waiting for our flight back to London :-( Nice photos. Jamie and I were soooo hammered after them whiskey buckets that neither of us could remember the end of the night and most of the next day. Hope you were feeling better than we did. We got the boat to Krabi the morning after our night out. Don't go there........cockroaches, rats and mosquitos!!!!! Anyway now you have my e-mail, drop us a line when you get chance and i'll send you the pictures from monkey beach, in exchange for the sunset photos. Was great to meet you both. Hope you have a great time on the rest of your travels...we're sooo jealous. Love Jo n Jamie xx

Tips?
Hiya Your blog and pics are really cool- luving the speedo! Im planning a holiday for next Dec and wanted to book up accomodation as it seems hard to do when you are there in Koh Phi Phi- do you have any recommendations? We want to pay about 3-4000 bhat a night (3 girls sharing a room) and be as close to sea in a chilled out place. any ideas?
