meanderer has indicated that this thread is about Thailand

Hi all
I may be heading up to Krabi and Koh Phi Phi in the next couple of days and was wondering if anyone else was there now. If so, what is the weather like? Is there more rain than sunshine or is it stormy? Also, I would really appreciate it if somebody could recommend accommodation that is cheapish but quiet and clean. Is the train from Bangkok a good option or should I consider flights as I have heard some nightmare tales of people having problems with buses?
All help gratefully accepted

Meanderer,
My only advice is to use gov't buses that leave out of the Southern Bus Station, not the private buses that leave from the Khao San Road area. The problems are on the private buses catering to the backpack crowd. Do yourself a favor and use the buses that the Thai themselves use.

Hi,

i was in Krabi and Phi Phi a week ago, weather on phi phi was on and off, had a few nice days and 1 rainey day. Don't stay in Krabi town (not alot to do there), head to raily beach (great place), we satyed in view point, (1000 batt for 3 in a room) One of the nicest places we stayed. Phi Hi is great, you have to pay a visit to reggee bar and watch pissed up people taking to the thai boxing ring....quality entertainment! Had some amazing times on that coast,

enjoy!
