view from our bungalow at the Phi Phi Princess. The hotel is situated on a very
narrow "neck" of land with the harbour on one side and this beach on the
other. The markets were located right outside the main reception area of the hotel
and restaurants and harbour were only a 3 minute walk.
most memorable day on Phi Phi was our snorkelling trip. The weather was perfect and
we visited six reefs, each of which was better than the last. One of the locations
we visited was the setting for the latest Leo de Caprio movie. I can fully
understand why the Krabi coast is so popular with film makers.
islands in this area of Thailand are all the most fantastic shapes. Most are
deserted and many have extremely high cliffs which would make exploration of them
extremely difficult to say the least.
picturesque fishing village was one of the stops we made the day we went snorkelling.
The people there live much as they have for hundreds of years and are without
exception extremely hospitable.
couldn't resist adding this photograph because I was totally blissed out when this was
taken. I hadn't been snorkelling on a coral reef in years, not since I holidayed on
Heron Island. This area is perfect for snorkellers and the coral and the fish rival
our own Great Barrier Reef.
