When we arrived to the island it was a chaotic scene getting everybodies luggage off the boat and to the right person. I just sat up on the top deck and watched for our bags and let everybody else mess with the crowd- I spotted our bags and swooped them up and we were off to find accommodations. We didn't do too much research so we just walked towards the town center- we knew what we wanted to spend so when we found a good looking place we made the move. The Ban Thai Guest house was the place to be and had an awesome lady running the place- Ms Lee. After we checked in and talked to Ms Lee for a bit we walked to the beach for some Changs and sun.
First impression of Koh Phi Phi was this place was tight. No cars or traffic, just Thais riding bikes everywhere making beeping noises with their mouths instead of using horns. The nightlife had a lot going on for being such a small island. I especially got a kick out of the bar that would give you a free bucket of booze if you got in the muay thai ring, I didn't do it but watching people get beat up was good fun. After we had drank way too much and been awake for too long we ran into the Wildcat and her daughter at one of the many tattoo parlors, we told them to get a bunch, they told us about this when we ran into them the next day (we didn't remember seeing them).
