Maya Bay, where "The Beach" was filmed was so gorgeous. However, it was a pity that so many people come here now as there was rubbish everywhere through the sand, and so many boats in the bay that it took away the beauty - not all, but a lot of it.
The main island in the Phi Phi's was beautiful, so many boats though!! It was gorgeous though and we even come across some topless sunbathes which to be honest i find very rude here because it is frowned upon, and it was clearly not a nudest beach :/ The lunch was pretty minimal, and it looked like all tours had the same lunch set-up.
We went to Khai Island, a tiny island full of chairs and people everywhere. It was rather sad. The snorkelling was amazing though, but we were to spend 2 hours here which I thought was too many. Nathan even got biten by a fish which was quite funny! It was super hot, and we lay in the sun most of the time.
Overall, it was nice, something that needs to be done only once and never again. It was a pretty long day overall though and we were beat by the time we got back to the Banthai. We had a wee snooze before having a dip in the gorgeous pool.
