Day 4 to 6 - Phi Phi Islands
It was with a heavy heart that we bid adieu to Krabi, but at the same time we were really looking forward to this next phase of our journey to the world renowned Phi Phi Islands. To call it a global superstar would be an understatement of massive proportions. Phi Phi Island is Thailand's island-superstar. It's been in the movies. It's the topic of conversation for travelers all over Thailand. For some, it's the only reason to touchdown in Thailand and boy oh boy, it doesn't disappoint. Phi Phi's beauty is a large chunk of the allure. The islands, when approached by boat, rise from the sea like a fortress. Sheer cliffs tower overhead, then give way to beach-fronted jungle. It's love at first sight. You will only find a few places on the planet are this laid-back. Of the two islands located near Phuket and Krabi, one is completely free of human inhabitants (Phi Phi Leh), and the other is without roads (Phi Phi Don). There's no schedule, no hustle-and-bustle, no reason to be in a hurry. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the sun and sand of this magnificent island, which will etch a mark in your heart and your soul would be left behind, even long after you have left this island.
We took a ferry to Phi Phi from Krabi's Nopparat Thara pier and just a short 2 hour ride later, we arrived at the Phi Phi pier and the moment you enter the island, the whole vibe of that place is out of ordinary.
No one is in any sort of hurry to be anywhere, there are shops selling different items to you. A lot of travelers from across the world come to the islands for Snorkeling and Diving and to be honest with you, the crystal clear waters only add to the charm of this place.
We arrived at our hotel, called the cobble beach hotel, which i booked from Agoda.com and got a good last min. deal on the stay(including breakfast).
The whole island can be covered on foot and again the food will not disappoint you.I had one of the best papaya salads of my LIFE and i mean my LIFE on the island.
The french crepes and the morning pancakes are to die for and the food over all is just mamma mia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We took a whole day island tour to explore the islands further and god knows it was one of the best decisions i will ever take in my life.
The beauty of these islands can never be explained using mere words and it would be utter injustice on my part if i even try to do that.
I would let some of the pictures speak for me and let you guys decide if it is worth it.
All we did was relax at the beach and soaked in all the sunshine we could and then moved on to the last stretch of our journey to Phuket.
