We took the short drive to the local pier and boarded the local ferry from Ao Nang to the Phi Phi islands. The journey across the Anderman sea took about one hour fifty minutes.
As soon as we landed we stopped off for brunch before wandering around the local markets in the narrow streets. There are no vehicles allowed on the island, so for the only time on this trip we did not have to look out for hordes of motorcycles.
We then made our way down to the local beach for a cooling swim in the beautiful turquoise sea. After a few hours or exploring the sea front it was soon time to reboard the ferry and return to Ao Nang.
