Sand Sea Bungalows

No rain!!

The sun was shining and the weather was nice and warm...:) goodbye low season!

We ran to the beach and that was really one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen...We had breakfast with this breathless view and then decided that we're ready to go! After all we we're only there for a week and definately needed to move on...

There was a ferry departing at 9 am from Railay East to the Phi Phi Islands, so we got a ticket at the Sand Sea Bungalows and ran to the other side of the peninsula.

The trip took us one hour and half in the sun..the weather got really really nice and we both got a sunburn :) yeah!

We arrived to the Phi Phi with no place to stay...but soon we found that it wasn't a problem... first we went to have some lunch by the sea.

Railay West
..there are tons of places where you can eat...good food..and bad food..i stuck with the fried rice :) And Marco decided to have a burguer...(blerghhhhhhhh...it looked disgusting ...)

After that we decided to stay at the Relax Beach Club. This was an advice from a portuguese friend..these bungalows were 1/2 hour away from Phi phi town, but it was worth it. The Long tail charged us 500 baht to get there... it's a flat rate :)

The bungalows were right at an isolated beach. And guess what...we're the only ones' there! The owner took us to our bungalow that basically was a bamboo hut in the middle of the jungle...on top of the ocean :) just grrrrreat!! It had a bed and a mosquito net and a thai bathroom :) loved it...

the only thing that scared me out we're the lizards on the inside wall.

Where's the rain??
..:) would i sleep over the night? heheheh...

We went to the ocean and then grab something to eat at the reception. The place was kinda dead, but in high season this must be a very good place to relax and meet a lot of people...The staff was really really nice and helpfull to us! They told us that we could reach Ton Sai (the center) by foot - a 60 min walk throuh the "jungle" and we would pass 2 view points. So we decided to try it out and have dinner downtown.

It was a great walk, though it was very very hot...but it was worth every bit of it! We reached the view point half an hour later and from there we could see both islans - Phi Phi Don and the small Phi Phi Leh. Went down the hill, straight to Ton Sai bay for a nice sunset at the beach...

Coming in low season was definately a good option as there were few people around. We had dinner ate the Cosmic restaurant. Yes, we falled for some pizza! delicious one ;)

We arranged a snorkelling tour for the next day and the catched a long tail back to the Bungalow. At night, the fare is a little high. And we paid 600 baht.

When we got to the bungalow, the power was out. Guess they shut down the electricity after a certain hour...

It was like staying in the middle of the jungle as there were so much noises around :) finally we got some sleep...
