Koh Phi Phi Tour

“Only the early bird catches the worm” – So we started our tour to Kho Phi Phi at the break of dawn. We reached Phuket after a one hour ride in KLLD’s comfortable minibus. After a biscuit and coffee break, we took off on a speedboat to Koh Phi Phi Leh. Crystal-clear water, here and there a limestone rock sticking up out of the water and a fresh warm see breeze. When we reached the island I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the white sandy beach and the amazing landscape. Everything reminded me of the movie “The Beach” with Leonardo DiCaprio which was shot at this place in 2000. Only this time, Leonardo wasn’t there but we didn’t miss him too much. Together with our guide we discovered the island and came to a wonderful view point from where we enjoyed a panorama of the surroundings. After some hours we continued to the Viking cave, where a specie of bird builds its nests. In China birds nest soups are delicacy and therefore very expensive.
After visiting Koh Phi Phi Don the crew dropped anchor and our tourguide gave us the snorkeling equipment and some instructions. With fins and masks on we jumped in the warm water. Shoals of fish and corals. I had talked to people before who said “you as a diver will be disappointed when snorkeling at Koh Phi Phi” and I have to tell, I saw many beautiful fish and corals and am not disappointed at all. We had perfect visibility and there is nothing to complain about. After the snorkeling trip we headed for a lonely idyllic island where the crew installed a nice buffet for us. Especially the fish curry was very tasty!
After lunch we had free time so I decided to go snorkeling again. Others relaxed at the beach or went for a swim. Later then we left the island and stopped at a riff where we had the chance to snorkel once again. It was just fantastic there. Unfortunately it was already time to go home and we went back all the way to Khao Lak.
