Ko Phi Phi

After our time in Ko Lanta, we were really looking forward to Ko Phi Phi but will admit were a little worried that we got suckered into another place that Trip Advisor and booking.com say is nice but really isn't. Since we set our expectations pretty low, it was pretty easy to exceed them - especially while staying at a resort. After about a hour ferry ride without air conditioning, we got on a long tail boat for the Outrigger.

The lovely Outrigger

Welcome coconut/pineapple drink. Yummy!

They even let us check in early...and our bungalow was very nice.

Our home for 3 days

We spent our three days here finally getting some sleep and R&R. We treated ourselves to a nice dinner and the hotel really took care of us. We had contacted them about Paul's allergies ahead of time so the food & beverage manager had informed the staff. It was easy to order and there were no tomatoes anywhere!

Besides hanging by the pool and beach, we did manage to take a hike to a couple different places.

Lounging by the beach

Moving to another spot by the pool - convenient swim up bar in the pool...

Ahhhh....a hammock. This one couldn't fit us both. 

We took a hike around the grounds and found the tsunami victims memorial

I like that you can see the reflection of the blue skies in this shot

We splurged on a BBQ dinner on our porch

They had even decorated with pretty flowers

We checked out on Friday, April 19 and headed to Chiang Mai. It only took us 10 hours to get there...first a long tail boat from the Outrigger to Tonsai Bay. We had some time to kill around Tonsai Bay before getting on the ferry to Phuket so we did some shopping. Paul would refer to it as negotiating.

Long tail to Tonsai Pier

The water was really clear that day

Bye bye Phi Phi

Along the way, we saw more limestone cliffs

...there was another hour taxi ride from the pier to the airport. Then we waited another 2 hours before flying 2 hours to Chiang Mai. After being so lazy at the Outrigger, all the travel and effort made for a long day.
