I wish I could offer you details about where we stayed and where we ate, but I was not much of a documenter on that trip! I needed to relax, so I did. Also, nearly ever infrastructure on Phi Phi was sadly destroyed less than a year later during the Tsunami of 2004. So, I am not sure how much of the smaller places were re-built.I believe nearly all of the resorts have been re-built.
I can, however, tell you that it is a great, super affordable vacation, if you're already nearby. Once you get to Phi Phi, everything is inexpensive, but the plane ticket is what costs the most.
Here are some of the highlights from my trip.
I did lots of relaxing by the pool and on the beach, gazing at this breath-taking view:
I also had fun doing outdoor activities, such as kayaking. I reccomend taking a trip on over to Monkey Beach where you might just get to this:
Feed wild monkeys!!!
Then, I can live vicariously through you because I sadly did not get a chance to do this. But, it's OK, I was able to play with monkeys at other times in my life.
I also went hiking and saw beautiful views of the cliffs.
And met B-list celebrities staying at the same resort! (UPDATE: Jared Leto is now an Oscar winner! No more B list)
George had fun on vacation too, in his natural habitat. I mean, I assume such trees are also found in Africa. He was also disappointed about missing Monkey Beach, though I am pretty sure he think those monkeys are a bit primitive. He lives in a swanky apartment in Manhattan, after all.
