Where I stayed
Arrived in Phuket this morning and jumped on a bus to Phuket town where I got a taxi to the docks and bought a boat ticket to Ko Phi Phi.
The boat took just over 2 hours to reach Ko Phi Phi. As we approached the island the big cliffs came into view, it was exactly how I pictured the place to look, lush with craggy cliffs and beautiful waters. It's hard to imagine that 2000 people perished on this island in the Tsunami of 2004. Everything has been rebuilt and the only indication that this tragedy happened are the Tsunami escape route signs, lights and sirens telling people what to do and where to go if it happens again. These warnings are certainly a consequence of this awful and harrowing incident.
