Photos of Ko Phi Phi


When my friends and I were planning our trip to the southern part of Thailand, we did a lot of asking around and research to see where would be the best place to go. Through the recommendation of a friend of mine, we decided on Ko Phi Phi. Some people discouraged us on going due to two things: 1. June/July is the rainy season; 2. Ko Phi Phi is known as a big party island. In the end, we decided to go there anyway.




We are so happy we chose Ko Phi Phi. It only rained once and when it did, it was only for about 5 minutes. Basically, all we did was BEACH TIME!! These are the pics from our times at the beach which we absolutely loved...




For me, the time at the beach during the day was the best. The views were beautiful, the water was great and the sun felt great on my skin. If you love the beach as I do, you know what I mean...




The night life was a different story. I have to admit, the 'college drinking/partying' scene is just not for me. And at night, that is what it was.. People walking around with buckets of alcohol while the locals tried to make a sell anything they could. Basically, Ko Phi Phi is a very "Touristy Place" so expect lots of 'Farangs' (the name for foreigners in Thailand and locals trying to make a quick buck. 




Fortunately, the beach made up for it and we all loved our time there. 





I had to put a picture of the mango with sticky rice. This was by far my favorite thing to eat at Ko Phi Phi. 





What is your type of ideal vacation? 

Are you into the "drinking/partying scene"? 

Are you more of a beach bum?

Or, are you a little bit of both?

  5. I'm neither really since I don't go on holiday to party (I love in a fiesta city already!) and I'm not overly fond of the sand and sunscreen combination! But I do love being IN and UNDER the water! ;o)
    I enjoy losing myself in nature or admiring gorgeous cities... Exploring things. Meeting people. Hanging out with friends.

    I've never planned a trip to a "beach" destination because it seemed a bit like a waste since I live a few blocks from the beach! But these beaches are something else... something worth thinking about...
