Barracudas Tour to Phi Phi Islands and Night Walking Market

Saturday, November 30

We booked Barracudas Tour to Phi Phi Islands through our hotel.  It included pick up at our hotel and being driven from Krabi Town to Ao Nang, a full day from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on the high speed boat going from island to island, buffet lunch, mask, snorkel and life jacket.  Our price was 1200 Baht ($38) per person.

Some of the scenery was quite stunning, but the beaches were over crowded which definitely detracted from our day.  I’m glad we got to see Phi Phi, however I think going there and spending a few days would have given us a much better impression than trying to see a couple of beaches in such a short amount of time.

Here are my favorite pictures of the day:

We were welcomed back “home” with good news that we could now get the Internet in our room.  They upgraded the system earlier today so I can now sit in my room to blog instead of in the hotel lobby.

The shower felt wonderful as we wiggled out of our suits, and washed a layer of sand off of our bodies.  The night walking market was once again in full swing.

After dinner we picked out a few small items to sample for our dessert.

We have visited several markets on this trip and so far this has been my favorite.  It has a great deal of food carts so we plan on having our dinner here tomorrow night.

    Awesome beach pictures – beach as nice as our Ocean Isle beach, but with mountains added!

    • Randy, it was beautiful to see, but I think the quick day trip did not give us enough time to fully appreciate it. An overnight stay so we could see the beach early in the morning or with a sunset would have been even better.

    It brought back reminders for me of my night in a hotel hut on Phi Phi island beach. My hut came complete with a mosquito net to protect me from the critters. One critter was a giant, spotted gecko – the thing was over a foot long, hanging out on the wall above my bed. He was part of the insect control committee, and rather cute. Glad I had the netting.

    • Penny we have seen quite a few tiny geckos but nothing even close to that big. The little ones are cute and yes, great help with eating insects. Phi Phi was beautiful and I think we would love to overnight there. I want to see it in the early morning or at sunset when the boat tourist crowd has thinned out.
