Koh Phi Phi

I think it's safe to say that Koh Phi Phi is one of my favourite places in the world. Arriving in Phi Phi to a glorious sunset, after a week of non-stop tropical rain on Samui and Phangan, was an omen to how wonderful this stretch of the trip was going to be. I have never been so excited to see blue sky as I was waking up on our first morning here. We made up for the lack of sun by soaking in as much as possible. Kayaking, boat trips, private beaches, snorkelling, sun bathing and floating in crystal waters were among the activities we got up to. As well as ticking all the boxes for natural beauty the town of Koh Phi Phi Don is equally amazing. Due to it's small size no cars or motorcycles are allowed on the island. This leaves the town full of winding alley sized streets bustling with boutiques, markets, bars and restaurants. One morning we stumbled across a cafe called Phi Phi Bakery and were amazed to find the best coffee I have ever tasted in Asia. We came back here every morning for breakfast and found out that the owner lived in Melbourne for three years which explained a lot! After all it's hardly paradise for me with out expresso. If you only plan on having a small trip to Thailand or don't fancy moving around to much on vacation I would recommend Phi Phi as the place to go closely followed by Koh Samet.
