Phuket and Phi Phi Islands in Thailand

I know you have seen the pictures of Phuket and Phi Phi Islands in Thailand since the devastating tsunami. I wanted you to see what a wonderful place it was before then. These pictures were taken in July 2003. It is a beautiful place and it breaks my heart to know that so many people died or lost their livelihood.

This is the main beach, Patong Beach, in Phuket and pictures from the street that runs just beyond the shoreline.

Main Drag in Patong

Yes, even a McD!




And here are some pictures from the Phi Phi Islands.

The Islands
People come to the Phi Phi Islands to swim, scuba and snorkle. It is a truly beautiful place.


Koh Phi Phi
This is the main beach on Koh Phi Phi where all the restaraunts line the beach.

These pictures were taken during the off season (the rainy season) so there are very few tourists-- only a few hundred. December thru February is the main tourist season, and the beaches and shops are typically packed with tourists.
