    Phi phi island

    Looking at going to phi phi island for a few days in december prob around 28th to 30th.

    Has anyone got any advice on any resorts there?

    Also i dont plan on booking in advance. Is it likely to be fully booked out or should be fine?

    Think you have to book up front, it's normally full of Swedes and Russians.

    Few friends went last year without booking. Got a room for a couple of nights.

    Not exactly sure of the dates which is the sticking point

    Be prepared to be crammed into overcrowded boats and dumped on overcrowded beaches where you can hardly see the sand under your feet. Or so I've been told.

    You'd best leave any sight seeing like that for the offpeak season.

    Like I said, I've been told it's that way. But I went diving in March and a few of the boats I saw going to Bond Island did fit the description, and that's not peak season anymore. Dunno, not enough experience to tell you for sure.

    Other members will be able to shed more light on the subject.

    For New Year, I'd sort my dates pretty quickly and book as soon as possible, although we of course do not offer Phi Phi accommodation, but we have been fully booked for Dec & Jan now for a couple of months, judging by this fact and daily further enquiries, numbers we think will be well up this peak season.
    Custard should be a colour...cos I could then paint over the mess I've just made!!!

    Yeah liver, kidneys, heart, brain, balls. They'll all need a holiday after the holiday. Thailand's good at clocking some serious mileage on the internal organs.
