Almost exactly 3 years ago my then prospective girlfriend Scarlett wrote me a very short — and thus even more powerful — email from Phi Phi Island: "I'm in paradise". Ever since then I dreamed about going there ... and finally, I'm here myself !!
Admittedly, the tsunami and plenty of tourists caused some harm — the latter especially since the movie "The Beach" was shot here — but still these islands and beaches rock!!
Even more when combined with plenty of exquisite cocktails and lots of fun playing frisbee 🙂
In short: We spent 2 days on Phuket (Kata), then took the ferry to Ko Phi Phi Don and spent 2 days there — enjoying Ko Phi Phi Leh on the second day. And on Wednesday and Thursday we explored Railay Beach, a small peninsula with impressive limestone cliffs that attract rock climbers from all over the world — a paradise for Jürgen and Reini. Needless to say, I simply had to borrow some climbing boots and do some bouldering 🙂
