Phi Phi Don
Phi Phi Leh - Maya Bay - Where 'The Beach' was filmed
We all decided to take the trip from Phuket to the Phi Phi islands for one or two days to see Maya Bay and also the surrounding areas of Phi Phi Don. Both Stephen and myself have been here before the tsunami and was interesting to see after. They have done a hell of a job to get it fixed up and the tourists back in but there are noticable changes such as whole areas where bungalows were are missing and other areas have been wiped out.
I dont travel on boats very well and as we'd had one or two the night before i was a little green on the trip from Phuket to Phi Phi but managed to get there without making a mess.
We decided to go out as you do and sample some of the local buckets which after a couple we were all feeling it. We then went watch some Thai boxing and there anyone could fight in the ring against another amateur to win a few drinks. So in my intoxicated state i decided to go ahead but instead of fighting in the ring i got into a fight with a Welsh bloke next to the bar and left with him in a state. Anyway to cut a long story short we bumped into them after they arrived in Ko Lanta and by pure coincidence they chose the same place as us. We sorted everything out and shook hands and they turned out to be sound as a pound. Not only that but it turned out that me and the bloke managed to pick up one of each others flip flops and we were both walking around with odd ones on all day. Needless to say, after swapping back, we all had a good laugh about it.
