I just thought that since I use Travelfish so often, and I have been traveling South East Asia for the last 3 months, that I would share my blog with all of you.
Disclaimer: There is some rude language, some disgusting yet hilarious stories, and just all around good memories in there, so read at your own risk :).
I stayed at The Rock Backpackers. It wasn't bad, a single room with shared bathrooms was 350 baht so a little pricey, but that's Ko Phi Phi for ya. It really depends on what your looking for, if your looking for a great social setting in which to meet other backpackers, then it doesn't get any better than Rock, even though I stayed in one of the single rooms by myself, it was right next to the dorms, and every night we ended up setting up right outside the dorms and playing King's Cup (a drinking game involving a deck of cards). We'd start the game with just 4 of us and end up with at least 8 within the next hour so it was really fun in that respect. But if you looking for a very quiet, laid-back experience, then i wouldn't recommend it.
Oh and PS for everyone who is going to read, keep in mind that I am 23 years old, as I know a lot of the people on this site don't like the whole "Come to SEA to party thing". And while I did far more on my trip than just partying (partying took up not even half) I still did quite a bit, and therefore there are a few drinking stories in there (ok more than a few).
"as I know a lot of the people on this site don't like the whole "Come to SEA to party thing"'
I think this is a great place to come to party. I just have trouble understanding why people come all the way here and want to party with other westerners, instead of indigenous people.
