Is 24 hours in Koh Phi Phi enough? How big are Phi Phi Islands? The answer to the first question: absolutely not, but it’s completely doable. By now, you could probably answer the second question, they’re big enough that one day is barely enough. But, if you really really only have a day, like me and my hubby when we visited Phuket a couple months ago, here’s how we make the best of our 24 hours stay in Koh Phi Phi.
We had made the decision to visit Phi Phi Island without a tour because we wanted to spend a night at Phi Phi Island, and we succeeded. We even had the opportunity for sightseeing around Phi Phi Le with the cruise that we took to come to Phi Phi Island. But here’s our next problem: we want to go snorkelling in Phi Phi Island but we only have half a day. Is it possible given that we arrive at the island about 11.30 am? How to snorkel with only half a day?… Read More
If you have time constraints, take a day tour to visit Phi Phi Island from Phuket. If you love to travel deep, skip the day tour; instead, take the ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi Island and stay at least a night on Phi Phi Don. My hubby and I decided to stay a night on Phi Phi island on the second night of our Phuket trip because we want to see Phi Phi island up close. Our next step was to look for a ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi Island…. Read More
“What are the places that you REALLY WANT to visit in Phuket?” I asked my hubby when we were planning for this trip to Phuket. “James Bond Island and Maya Bay,” he said. “Okay. Let’s go to James Bond Island on our first day. Then, Phi Phi Island (where Maya Bay is located at) the next day.”
We spent so many hours looking for the perfect place to stay at in Phuket. Well, our definition of perfect involves the adjectives cheap and nice. And I think we found a gem. To be honest, there are too many things I like about Phuket. First, its efficient transport and travel agent. Second, the huge varieties of food. And, the number of affordable hotels. There are literally hundreds of affordable hotels all around Phuket. Since it was our first visit to Phuket, I wanted to stay at a busy location with plenty of… Read More
“Let’s go to a place that we both haven’t been to before!” There’s something magical when you visit a completely new place that your travel partner and you have not been to before. That’s what drives us to decide that Phuket should be our next destination. Well, I have been to Krabi and have done island hopping to Phi Phi islands 7 years ago, but I haven’t been to Phuket! This trip is a good opportunity for me to explore Phuket and re-visit Phi Phi Islands. Thanks to a travel agent who… Read More
For our last day in Bangkok, we enjoy a slow paced day. We had breakfast in the hotel, packed our bags, checked out almost noon, took BTS to Siam, had curry crab for lunch at Somboon Seafood at Siam Square One. We also had duck web noodle at a chinese restaurant before taking BTS to Mo Chit Station. From Mo Chit, we took bus 29 to Don Muang Airport. At Don Muang, we had our dinner before boarding our flight at 18.20 pm. We arrived at Singapore at 9.40pm. Curry Crab from… Read More
We started our day quite late today. We had breakfast at hotel and a short swim in the swimming pool. We then took BTS to Saphan Taksin. The ferry is just outside BTS station. We bought the day pass of the Chao Phraya Tourist Boat for 150 baht. The waiting time was quite long, however the tour guide instruction and the map were very clear. Our first stop was Grand Palace. However, after realising that Grand Palace was so huge and the admission was quite expensive (400 baht), and it was already… Read More
We started our day with a bowl of boat noodle for breakfast along Naresuan Road. We rented bicycle for whole day from our hotel, and we were making our way to Wat Maha That when we spotted boat noodle stall. In Wat Maha That, we witnessed the famous Head of the Sandstone Buddha Image. From there, we continued to Wat Phra Ram and witnessed elephants on the way. After that, we went to Wat Phra Si Sanphet. It happens that 11th and 12th July are Thailand’s national public holiday, related to religious… Read More
So I’m back again in Bangkok after 2.5 years! This time, I’m travelling to Ayutthaya as well. Me and my travel partner will spend 4 days in total. Our journey started early morning of Friday, 11 July 2014. Our flight was scheduled at 10.55 am from Singapore and we arrived at Bangkok Don Mueang Airport at 12.20 noon.
