Koh Phi Phi - island of diving, tsunami devastation and "the Beach"

We arrived in Koh Phi Phi and swarmed off the ferry with the crowds, intent on finding a place to stay as quickly as possible. We had read that everything was expensive but were pleased to find a small guesthouse with good cheap rooms not far from the pier.

Koh Phi Phi is an extremely beautiful island of towering cliffs, turquoise seas and white sandy beaches. Most of the town on KPP was devasted by the tsunami at the end of 2004 but the local people have done a good job of recovering from their town being flattened. I really liked the fact that there were no cars on the island and it was great to stroll around the small streets and dusty trails on foot.
