Phi Phi Island

by - 3/28/2014

Today I conclude the incredible Andaman Sea journey. When we say Phi phi island; pronounced as Pee Pee, what is meant is not a single island but two.. Phi Phi Ley (small) and Phi phi Don (big). The famous maya bay is in Ley. These two islands come under Krabi district though everyone goes from Phuket.

Basically the specialty of these two islands lies in the fact that they are lagoons. The picturesque limestone cliffs encircle a chunk of the aquamarine water to form a lagoon. The size of the lagoons are the reason behind their names.

Phi phi don island as the name suggests, is huge. But the incredible part is that the water is so shallow, one can actually traverse the whole lagoon by foot!! The clear water gives an amazing view of what all lies beneath. Though you can walk throughout, I suggest that unless one is a good swimmer; one should refrain from doing so!!

Our lunch was organised at the Don island. Food, very unlike of me, was not very palatable as it was absolutely unrefined Thai Food. There was pork and beef and other forbidden things and I had to satiate my appetite with just chicken. Imagine the poor plight of my strictly veggie hubby!!

The best part of this place was that we got about one hour time to swim before the whistle blew for going back!! swimming remains my favourite activity and I would love to visit this amazing place again and again!!
