A couple of days ago, I thought to be organised and sort through some photos to post on my Instagram, putting them all into one huge folder. Today I thought, ‘scrap that idea’ promptly deleting the folder and emptying the trash out of habit. k3rnel-pan1c.ksd (anyone else love Mr. Robot?) I had forgot that I also moved my word document containing all of my blog posts into that now deleted file too. Now here I am, writing this blog post for the second time:
I think it’s hard not to fall in love with Koh Phi Phi upon arrival. You’re greeted by clear blue waters and fleets of beautiful long tailed boats decorated in bright scarves and garlands to provide protection and luck. We arrived at a quiet time as most visitors had travelled to Koh Phangan for the full moon party that night. It was nice to walk around the island without the bustle of crowds and we were excited to take a dip in the sea. Koh Phi Phi, however had other plans. We arrived at the beach with low tide in full swing. It was amazing, yet rather annoying, to see that this had all occurred in the few moments we were checking into the hostel! Boats that were once floating serenely on the water were now lying titled against rocks and hundreds of dead jellyfish littered the shore. O.O Meeting up with a friend, we were informed that the sewage goes unfiltered into the sea, decreasing our enthusiasm further for a swim in the waters.
We opted instead to chill on the beach until evening, people watching and me trying to befriend a cute stray dog. The night life here is alright, there’s some nice relaxed places on the beach for a drink and more bars/clubs further in land. Slinky’s bar has a fire show on the beach that lasts for AGES, it’s fun to watch and eventually turns into one huge party! The whole atmosphere of the place is easy going and apart from some random creepy guys trying to infiltrate our group, it turned out to be a great night! By morning we were ready to go, food here isn’t the best (had the worst pizza there the first day!) and being put off from swimming in the pee sea, we were looking forward to rounding off our trip in Krabi!
