After a couple of flights and a night in Phuket, we fought the jet lag to get ourselves up early and jumped on a tuk tuk to catch the first ferry from Phuket to Ko Phi Phi.
Ko Phi Phi is famous for being the primary location for The Beach and as we approached the island it was easy to tell why. (Obviously a little comp work to remove some of the bars, resorts and long-tail boats would be necessary though!)
Waving away the people trying to sell us boat rides there, we stubbornly headed east to find Viking Resort on our own. After getting lost in the jungle and passing a few other hotels and resorts, we finally found the gourgeous Viking Cove and its tiny secluded beach which is now barely 20 seconds walk from the front of our hut.
Let the holiday begin!
