    Popo-Brand auf Ko Phi Phi

    December 15, 2016 in Thailand

    Die wichtigste Dinge zuerst:
    Ich hab immer noch Popo-Brand und Olli verwechselt die ganze Zeit "danke" und "guten Tag" auf thailändisch - wie unangenehm ;)
    Und, Memo an mich selbst - Rezept für Sticky Rice mit Mango finden.

    Nun zu Ko Phi Phi

    Wie oft hat man uns ausgelacht, als wir sagten, dass wir noch nach Ko Phi Phi fahren...
    Jaaaaaa, wir haben vorher auch gelesen, dass Phi Phi die Partyinsel ist. Deswegen haben wir nen Hotel abseits der Party-Meilen gebucht.

    Ehrlich gesagt, es ist bisher wirklich der beste Ort von ganz Thailand. Dieser ganze Hohn, vor allem von den Leuten auf Koh Lanta. Tssssss...

    Wir sind hier in einer einsamen Bucht, zu der man nur mit nem Boot oder über ne einstündige Tour durch den Dschungel kommt. Direkt vor der Tür ist ein super Schnorchel-Spot. Unser Bungalow befindet sich am Hang, zwischen allerlei kleinem und großem Gewächs. Beim Check-In wurden wir darauf hingewiesen, keine Lebensmittel mit in den Bungalow zu nehmen, sonst bekommen wir Besuch von den Affen.

    Wir haben ne wunderbare Aussicht - selbst beim Duschen. Fazit: auch als Nicht-Party-Mensch kann man eine fantastische Zeit auf Ko Phi Phi haben.

    Kleine Dschungeltour zum View Point

    December 16, 2016 in Thailand

    Auf dem Rückweg begegnen wir einer Affenbande, die scheinbar gerade auch zum Aussichtspunkt will. Während ich mir vor Angst fast in die Hose mache, weil einen die kleinen Scheißer manchmal ausrauben, wenn sie Hunger haben, schießt Olli seelenruhig Bilder.

    "Take me to the beach"

    April 10 in Thailand

    Although we usually avoid plannned excursions, lethargy and lack of public transport led us to book a day trip to the famous Phi Phi islands with a company called Phuket Island Hopper. The islands are about 30 miles offshore. We take a mini van for an hour to the east side of Phuket, a speedboat for an hour to meet up with a bigger group who left earlier for a longer day trip, then a final speedboat to arrive at Ko Phi Phi Don just after lunchtime.

    Wow is it busy! There must be 30 boats lined up on the shore and dozens of others moored in the harbour. It is quite a feat but our captain manages to find a ’parking’ space. Tourists mill around and a bar beckons us for a cold drink. Because most of the boats only stop for a short time I’m sure on a longer trip it would be easy to get away from the crowds. But we don’t have the time today.

    Soon we are on our way to Monkey Beach, a couple of minutes ride away. A group of wild monkeys live on the beach and are fed by tourists on boats hence they have learnt to swim out to grab food. Cute but not natural. Our guide has quite some fun feeding bananas to the monkeys and they are quick to jump in the water and get their fill. They are cheeky looking things but we are warned that they bite and best for them not to get too close.

    En route to Ko Phi Phi Lee we are taken past a few other caves and bays. The Viking Cave is a unique sight and one of Ko Phi Phi’s main tourist attractions. The cave was so named, due to the prehistoric drawings that were found on the cave walls that resemble ancient viking ships.
    Within the cave there are lots of ledges which are inhabited by thousands of birds called swifts. These birds make their nests out of their own saliva, the nests are harvested and later sold to make birds nest soup, a Chinese delicacy.

    We arrive at Maya Beach after about 15 mins passing some beautiful scenery and again this bay is another tourist day trip highlight mainly for its location for the film ‘The Beach’. We snorkel and take a walk on the beach - disappointed not to find Leonardo but loads of tourists instead.

    Leaving the island and heading home you get a spectacular view of the island and it takes around 1 hr to get back to Phuket. We sat the back of the boat and unsurprisingly we are wetter than when we started off given the splash back from the waves. That said it was a great day.

    Koh Phi Phi

    August 15, 2017 in Thailand

    Today we had planned on going on a tour of the Phi Phi islands but unfortunately a typhoon hit so our tour was cancelled . The sea was so choppy that although we were annoyed we wouldn't get to see the islands we were kind of relieved we wouldn't have to fight sea sickness . We were then left with a full day to spend on the island . We met up with the high school girls and strolled around the markets and explored the island a bit. Emily (Gaffney) arrived in the evening so we went for dinner together and all spent the evening in the Irish bar.Read more

    Phi phi Island resort 12 July

    July 12, 2017 in Thailand

    Nardus and Carmen and Debbie went for a walk to the other beach.
    Litter horrendous. Whole beach covered with bottles and plastic, etc.
    Weird small cockroaches by the thousands all over the rocks and sand as we walked. Carmen freaked out and Nardus had to piggyback her.
