Honeymoon in Thailand - Pt 2

Overview

Quote:
Our transfer from Ton Sai where the ferry comes in from Krabi (and Phuket) to our hotel was in a long-tail boat, organised by the hotel. On the way back, though, we chartered a speed boat which took us round Ko Phi Phi Leh (the smaller island adjacent) which was a great trip!

Best Way To Get Around:

The only ways to get around Ko Phi Phi are on foot or by long-tail boat - these boats are easy and inexpensive to charter.

This hotel comprises 80 individual bungalows set within woodland adjacent to a beautiful white sand beach. They are well spaced and private, and each bungalow has a decent sized bedroom and a shower-room.

The resort includes the hillside behind the bungalows and there is a bar at the top of the hill from where you can get views out over the other side of the island. There is also a bar by the beach and a restaurant.

The beach is gorgeous, pure white sand with views out over the turqouise tropical sea out towards Mosquito Island.

It really is a fabulous place to spend a few days.

The hotel reception arranged it for us, but there are many agents around all the resort areas that can arrange such trips. It cost approximately $75 and our trip lasted about two hours. It was a fantastic experience. The boat picked us up on time as arranged and we felt like royalty as we glided away from the beach, picking up speed and pa...Read More
