Thailand - Day 17 - Koh Phi Phi Don

Day 17

Today we'd booked another tour from our resort, the name of this tour was "One Day in Paradise"

We started out with breakfast at the resort, then we hopped into a long tail boat and were off, our first stop Mosquito Island. Luckily for Kristen we didn't see any mosquitoes. Once here we jumped into the water for some snorkelling.

After we were done snorkelling we were off to Bamboo Island. Now on the brochure for "one day in paradise" it said we would have lunch on a secluded beach, what we found was a beach full of day tourists from Phuket :(. We put our towels down on a not so busy part of the beach and had lunch and a drink then we jumped back into the water for another swim. After we dragged ourselves out of the water we relaxed on our towels until our long tail captain came to get us to return to the resort.

Once we were back we went back to our cabin for a little while then we were off to the spa for a couples massage. Kristen had an gentle aromatherapy massage, I had a "medium" sports therapy massage. At one point the masseuse was kneeling on the back of my thighs driving her elbows into my back... I should have asked for soft. Once our massage was done we settled down on the beach with our books for an hour or 2.

After we were chased off the beach by the mosquitoes we retreated to our cabin for some mozzie spray and headed back out for our candlelit dinner on the beach

While we were having dinner the resort next door was putting on yet another fire show. After some very hot Thai dishes the rain forced us back in doors once again. Phi Phi turned on a beautiful day for us today which was the perfect way to end our time here. Off to Bangkok tomorrow for the last stop on our journey through Thailand. Were both looking forward to being home again, but at the same time we don't want this to end.

Bring on Bangkok!
