Visiting Koh Phi Phi was the most thoughtout, spontaneous decisions. One moment we would decide to skip the island, the next we would decide to go. We vacillated for over 24 hours finally deciding and booking the ferry to Koh Phi Phi one hour for it was set to leave.
We were unsure if we wanted to go because even though it was supposed to be beautiful it was also supposed to be full of drunk tourists; both notions were correct. The island was beautiful. We did a half day tour that I would have regretted missing had we not come. However, there was an incredible party atmosphere which did not fit with my mood.
My friend V and I stayed in Koh Phi Phi one night and caught the 3 pm ferry to Koh Lanta the next day.
