I love surprises, but I’m a control freak, so its difficult to actually sneak anything by me. So I was thoroughly impressed with Jarrell when he spontaneously announced a quick trip to the Phi Phi Islands. We were literally grocery shopping on a Tuesday evening when he asked if I wanted to go to Koh Phi Phi tomorrow morning.
Of course he knew what my answer was going to be, so he had already booked a hotel and ferry ride for a one night getaway, and I was all for it. Here are some highlights from our trip to the Phi Phi Islands, and a couple of travel tips.
We caught the ferry from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi, for about $10 each way. The ride is smooth and about a 2-hour ride. The only downside is the timing limitations. The last ferry trip between the two islands is at 2:30 PM, so plan accordingly. You can also take a speedboat and leave whenever you want, and even get there in half the time, but the cost is about 10 times that of a ferry ticket.
