The south of the Gulf off Thailand is beautiful. They did the movie the beach in this area. The famous beach is from Koh Phi Phi and the rest of the movie have been filmed all around, Koh Chang, Phuket and Bangkok. I went many times on Phi Phi island and I love this island. The fact that no cars or scooters are allowed on the island is amazing. Everyone walk or use a bicycle to get around. No crazy sound to wake you up badly in the morning. Party every night on the beach and in the little bars. There is even a place you can jump on the ring and fight your opponent for a bucket of spirit.
Check out this nice video I made from the Beach !!
I met 3 guys from India on the ferry to Koh Phi Phi, they never been diving so I brought them in a dive school, and we all went diving. I was their instructor, everything went really well. For people who are not always in the water, they were pretty good and confident. Then we went on a journey to the Famous Beach and just before we stopped for cliffs jumping. It was really high, and on the same island a little further we could find little monkeys living there, waiting for tourists to bring them food.
Once we stepped on the beach, I felt so much more relax, it was a dream for me to go there one day, and I accomplished it right there. We decided to go later than every one else, to make it more special but especially to make sure we are the only ones are almost they only ones on the beach. Because in the day time, it become so crowded, I suggest if you want to go leave the harbor at 15:00 go cliff jumping until 16:00 and then got o the beach, by this time tourists will be back on the island.
There is also a second way to enter the beach, the Classical one, from the front where everyone is, but there is also the back entry. It is a little bit more adventurous, you have to jump in the water from your boat, then swim to the ladder, climb and pass through a small jungle to arrive right on ‘The Beach’. This way could be more fun if you like the adventure.
