Monkey Island Monkey, Thailand
Sunday 20th April 2008
There are a host of sights to be seen around Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Lei. Most of which require a boat trip. Today we booked a Long-tail boat to take us around some of the places worth seeing. First of all a stop off at Shark Point for a spot of snorkeling. Apparently a place where tiger sharks can be seen but no such luck today. Next a a trip to Bamboo Island which is a small island just off the north east coast of Phi Phi Don. This place boasts some amazing white sandy beaches and the clearest of waters. From there a trip down the west side of Phi Phi Don to see the rock formations and caves, and from there a stop off at Monkey Beach. No prizes for guessing what we found there!
The beach was crowded with dozens of monkeys, all accustomed to human visitors and in particular the fruit they brought with them!
