SE Asia Trip Series (Day 4): Aboard the Phi Phi Cruiser


Good morning Phuket!

What a delight to wake up in the morning with the smell of fresh air minus the noise of city traffic.

good morning
The whole town is still asleep.

We were up early because we needed to be at the Rassada Pier before 8:30 am.
We took all our stuff with us when we got down and proceed to the reception area to check out. We still got a few minutes left for our breakfast.

We were welcomed by a huge selection of breakfast at the buffet table. There are vegetable salads, mixed fruits, and yogurts for the health conscious.

 They also have donuts, croissants, white bread with assorted spreads. They've got a variety of drinks - fresh fruit juices, milk, coffee, tea, etc. Bacons, hotdogs, hams were also served.

 You can also have your omelet prepared by the cook. Being the glutton that we are, we requested everything to be put in our omelet. Haha! Lugi ang hotel!

Mr. Omelet Man

Pop arrived when we were just starting to eat our breakfast but he patiently waited at the lobby. We finished our food in a few minutes. (Sigh!) If it weren't for the early boat ride to Phi Phi, we would have spent the rest of the morning trying all the food on the buffet table. But then again we were in a hurry so we just brought our yogurts and gave some to Pop.

After loading our luggage on the car, we drove off to Rassada Pier. We almost didn't make it to the 830 boat trip because we got lost a little. Pop made a wrong turn. I was expecting to see ferry boats but instead there were small fishing boats. No passengers in sight and the place smelled like a wet market. It took a while before we realize we were in a fish port! Hahaha!

Luckily the passenger port is just a few meters away. We were able to catch the last boat to depart for that morning. Yikes! We paid 1000 baht each for a roundtrip ticket to Phi Phi Islands. Roundtrip fares range from 600-1200 baht depending on the shipping company. We could have got cheaper tickets if we arrived earlier but it's still okay. At least we didn't have to wait for the next departure at 1:30 pm.

The Phi Phi Island Cruise
We were among the last passengers to board before the boat started to sail. The boat was jam-packed but  we still managed to get vacant seats inside.

The journey to Phi Phi Islands would take an hour and 45 minutes. I was starting to get bored so I walked around the ship and took some photos.
