Colorfull Phi Phi Don Phuket (...an easy-lazy life too...)

When we arrive we had no accommodation booked yet. I heard about Hussin Guest house online and decide to find it. After find the guest house and check the room, we are all not really satisfy because it will be quite a walk from the beach and also they only have one vacant room, instead of two. So we walk from the pier and check one by one the hotel/hostel/guesthouse along the beach for price comparison from the pier to the Ton Sai Bai beach. There are many options here, just depends on your preferences and also prices. We are looking for cheap rooms that very close to the beach and have air conditioner, cause Nana can't stay in heat (explosive...hehehe)






After long walk we finally decide to stay in phi-phi Andaman Resort at Ton Sai Bay for price Baht 1100 per night per room. And its not included breakfast. Its a high season, so the price is bit high but its quite a bargain price from baht 1500.





The room is clean, the air conditioner is cool and bathroom is clean with hot water and water run well. Our room is like a small bungalow not next to each other. But its a fine one with terrace and two chair on the front and we had twin bed.




For first day we just walk around the island. We had our lunch in thai restaurant. Its not pricy like other restaurant because its where other thai eat too. I had chicken and rice for lunch. The total price not more than baht 60.










After had lunch we saw.. wow.. goreng pisaaang ! hehe its crispy banana and spring rolls.. taste so delicious ! (hehe gak ngira jauh-jauh makan pisang goreng !). This is the best thing about going to local market, you got good price, yummy food, and more nicer people to greet you.


We then try to find the half day tour for us for next day activity. We also went to other beach on the back of tonsai beach.. oh god... its beautiful... its in mid day and there are plenty people doing sun bathing... the white sand is so soft... we just walk through because that time we haven't find the tour yet.







There are alot of travel agent here so, we try to bargain one by one, and choose with the better price. Finally find a tour infront of a book store that seemed so nice, with good price ofcourse. We try to bargain for discount as always. The price for half day tour is baht 550 per person. We choose the sunset tour (hehe how romantic is that sound?).



After book the tour, we decide to go back to our room for a little nap. On the way back to hotel we saw flyer about free buffet dinner ! yay ! and fire show ofcourse, on the bar next to the beach "The hippies Bar". Sound like a hip party. So we take a little nap and wake up at 6 pm for Phi-Phi night life.
Instead of having great nap, i just feel a little bit too anxious about this island and wake up at 3 pm. See my cellphone, Nana, my cousin from Malaysia send me sms said she want to swim at the beach. We gear up and meet her and her friend Ainoon lying down at the sand... ohhh this is just beautiful. We sit for a while and then take a dip on the ocean.. its very cool. we swim until nearly sunset. Have to get ready for the night life at phi-phi.









Ainoon and her super camera ready for some action !



I am ready for the night.. plus a fan (it looks stylish but for me its a secret weapons hahaha !)



We only need to pay for cokes that we drink and we had the whole buffet consist of fried rice and some vegetables with shrimps and there's chicken also, and fruits. Over all.. yums !





After dinner, and full, we watch the fire show that start at 11 pm. Its a great show. I never sen a fire show before. I like the ambience, really feels like we are on holidays hehehe...



I went back to the room with kak Mari past mid night. We need some rest for tomorrow snorkeling !

Wake up, i said to Maria about swimming in the morning, we both pretty excited and get very dissapointed when we went to the beach.. ohhh gooosssshhh its very shallow ! we can't swim in the morning.. aawww ! so we just walk around the island, to the other beach.. for luck hehe.. but its just same the water just too shallow and far far ahead.. so we cancel our morning swim. Next time better make sure if the water is shallow in the morning or afternoon hehehe...

When we went to Loh Dalum the other beach back to back with the long beach, there are so many people lying down the sand on the beach..yup.. the "wasted" people who get party too much last nigyht. Its quite funny to see how they are lying down... in very weird position.. and.. sometimes.. their clothes is not in the right position...

We went back to our room for breakfast. We have bread from market and some orange juice. Our snorkeling will start at 11 am. We pack several things like camera and towels for the trip, and two bottles of sun block spf50 (HO-HO-HO) for the trip.

Kak Mari dan abang comel on the back ground...


We are ready with our fins (Ainoon: can we walk with this to the boat ??)


We are taken to a diving/snorkeling shop to get our fin and mask. We try to find the perfect fin for our feet size. Only nana have problem finding the right fin size.

We then march to the boat not far from the shop. The boat name is "Naemah" i think its kind of "melayu" name. There are several other people with out groups. We also have to pick up a couple in a very beautiful beach not far from long beach.. they had very nice hut. After all the group complete we heading to the shark point for snorkeling yaaaaay !!


Leaving phi-phi harbour for snorkeling.. its a beautiful day


Going to shark point..


And when we arrive at shark point the water not as clear as we went here two years ago. I can't really see the bottom. But i really want to snorkel so i take the life jacket and swim. Ainoon and Nana also kak Mari also swim.


And then ... gosh.. i see it.. dark blurry thing on the bottom of the sea.. its a sharkk
!! EEEKKKKK !! this is the first time i see life shark swim not far from me ! i got pretty scare first, because it follow me where ever i swim, and made the bottom of the sea dark because of the sand from the bottom goes up. I swim as fast as i can to the rest of the group, and i didn;t say anything about the shark. Its not that big white shark as i seen on National Geographic, but its about a meter long.. big enough to scare me hehehe....

Because its not so fun and blurry plus the shark experience i decide to jump up to the boat, and not really feeling satisfy. Its weird because its in April... the water should be like crystal clear....should be better than two years ago when we came on the raining season in August!

Then... that happened... i heard kak Mari said something but i can not hear
it clear. She mentioned about shark and i said yes theres a shark. And then she said help.. but i can't understand what she said, i ask other people but all show their puzzled face. Including Ainoon and Nana. And then i understand when she tried to lift her feet. She got crammed. Must be hurt, i ask the boat to go closer to pick her up, but they can not understand. I said hurry but they just so slow.

When we finally got kak Mari she was very upset (haha at me??) i try to explain, but she kept angry so i just think okay, i don't want to waste this good day into anger and upsetting thing. If i know my friends in trouble i will try hard to help, she is my travel companion afterall !. But she just don't get it. So i just try to talk with other girls and not want to discuss about that.

We went for lunch at bamboo island, and seemed all already forget about what happened. We had lunch and take few pictures on the island and had long rest. I slept under the tree we swim alot and then we had so much fun.


Ainoon and the rest of the group


We went for monkey beach after bamboo island. There is so many monkey here.. but not long after we landed on this small beach there are a lot of other tourist come and join us so its like a pack of tourist with a pack of monkeys... but yeah.. i am not so interested
since at our work place there are so many wild monkeys to see everyday.. heheh... so its not a wonder for us.


After feeding the monkeys we went to the viking cave and see the sea gypsy.. still the same like two years ago... and final destination.. my fave place... phi-phi ley... or well known with the MAYA BEACH ! yaaayyyy !










A little bit hungry so we eat at Khunva a restaurant that some of the bloggers recommend its in the middle of the island. I have the pinaple fried rice.. and wow.. it is literally served inside a pinnaple, its bit pricey from the lunch that we had but its excellent.
