hey guys an gals,

when ive been there before i have seen pretty much on the beach on phi phi those really basic huts that people stay in,

has anyone ever stayed in these and if so what were they like (im not expecting much) and also where abouts i would go to

find out about staying in one of these while i am there.

gonna be heading there in may and im going to be solo so i reckon one of these will be perfect for me

thanks all

Dave

Dave,
It has been years since I was on Phi Phi, but reading blogs it is just over run with tourists. I think you will have a better beach experience on a less visited island. Here are a list of lesser known islands in Thailand.

Good luck with your planning.

Dave..Phi Phi has changed a lot..you will never find huts or anything similar to that..it was now well built to attract tourists. You can explore the total island if you hire an individual boat.

hey all

thats a shame that its all built up now it has been 5 years since i was last there so i guess things were bound to change!!

i do really want to find some other islands that havent really been built up and not over toursty (if thats a word!) but i know its going to be hard now!!

cheers friends

Dave,
No recommendations. Read a few blogs on Koh Jum and decide what is the best spot for you. It seems a long tail boat comes out to meet the ferry and they take you to the bungalow you choose.

yea there not huts theyre bungalows. usually have no ac .. maybe a fan and maybe it works. bugs... but this is constant all over SEAsia. humm no access to a pool. i would pay for the ac on phi phi its worth it. uhmmm try.. pp anita? dont remember the name but something like that and you can find it on the web.
