Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what fun it is to sit on a beautiful beach under an umbrella on Xmas day!! Yep that's right- it rained (I blame Bryonie- we'd had none stop beautiful weather for about a month until she turned up!) Still I don't think we could have been in a better place. Phi Phi has a great mix of paradise & party. We still sat on the beach all day & drank a lot! Can't remember a lot after about 4pm! Boxing day we took a long tail boat to Phi Phi Leh, the actual beach from the film "The Beach" & snorkelled. We then tried to sneak onto the beach without paying (they've turned it into a national park with a 4 quid entry fee; typical of the Thai's!) and having spent approximately an hour creeping from our boat across the bay to the other side of the beach, gave up because there was a ranger there waiting for us & so crept an hour back. It took so long because the sea bed was full of sharp dead coral, which they apparantly removed for making the film & then replaced!

For the record our accommodation in Phi Phi was lovely!
