Phi Phi is the kind of place you dream of visiting and your heart won’t rest till you set your eyes on it. It’s pure magic…. I was obsessed with visiting this beautiful island and I almost missed out on the chance.
It was our (My husband and I) second day on the gorgeous Island of Phuket. We got to the ferry at around half past noon only to learn that the current ferry leaving at 1p.m was the last one for the day. After a lot of hassle with the guys at the ticket area, they allowed us on the ferry on one condition; that we would be at Phi Phi Pier by 5.30 as the last ferry back to Phuket would leave then. This meant that we had only two hours on the Island since it takes 2 hours to get to Phi Phi by ferry.
Of course I jumped at that option since this was my main motivation to go to Thailand and I couldn’t bear the thought of missing out on this major adventure. We would take two hours. My heart would have to be content with that.
We got on the ferry and after what seemed like forever, we set sail (lol). Then the heavens opened up and rain came down on us. We hid in the lower cabin of the ferry and dozed off into a deep, deep slumber.I only woke up to the voice of one of the guides on the ferry calling out “Phi Phi”…. I quickly woke my partner up and we dashed outside to behold this wondrous beauty. And what A sight it was!!!!!
Since we did not want to miss the ferry back to the main island, we did not do much exploring. The ferry was late though and we were put on a speed boat back to Phi Phi. I have never been on a speed boat before and I can tell you it’s crazy. The ride is bumpy but exhilarating. And it only takes 45 minutes!
I am really glad we got to visit this wonderful place and we definitely made plans of how we would be back here in ten years with our kids…. Lol 😂.
