At 9am we headed out to the Phi Phi viewpoint.  On the advice of a travel agent, we took the slightly longer route that was an easy walk.  It took about an hour, compared to the 15 minutes the other path would have taken.  We made it to two viewpoints, which were about the same, both incredibly pretty.  They showed the two beaches on the island with the town in the middle.  After heading back to the hotel and checking out, we headed out to catch the 1:30pm ferry to Phuket, stopping at Do Lum beach on the way.  Do Lum beach rivaled Maya bay in beautiful, a truly spectacular beach.  Upon arriving at Phuket and taxing to our hotel, we rented a motorbike and headed to Patlong beach, the most famous area of the city.  On the beach, we watched tourists parasail with a thai guide standing above them in the air, only holding on to the ropes to change the direction of the chute.  Still to early to view the nightlife, we got an hour thai massage and some thai pancakes (crepes).  Afterwards, we walked to the street market, which consisted of bars, lady boys, and of course, ping pong shows.
