Where I stayed
Anouk Chong Beach Bungalows
We get to the west coast Island of Koh Phi Phi via two ferry journeys, bus and mini-van. It's a stunning place. Beautiful crescent beaches and karst jungle clad peaks. We stay in some cute beach bungalows. One day we go on a trip snorkelling, and a visit to Maya bay (where they filmed the film the beach). Maybe it’s because of the over-cast weather on the day that we visited but I’m afraid to say it isn’t as stunning as it is in the film. The most rewarding thing we did on the island was to watch the sunset from the viewing point. There was quite a few people there but instead of feeling cramped it just felt like you were sharing the experience and the beautiful view with friends. We meet some people from Cardiff there that went to uni with a school friend, Glyn Torne. It’s a small world after all!
