It had to happen sooner or later. Ronald McDonald has landed on Phi Phi Island. Paradise lost, with cheese ;-)

Some of us may just be able to resist this temptation- I hope

I'm sure they'll put in the customary wai-ing Ronald McDonald statue, and it will be the most selfied place on the island. (Like it already is on Khao San.)

hey, the first maccas i saw (with statue) in thailand was the branch on silom rod back in 1990... can not imagine i would ever choose maccas over local thai food (soo much choice!)...

I remember when the first McDonald's in Thailand opened in early 1985. It is the branch around the corner from the Erawan Shrine. Back then, the only people in there were western expats and foreign tourists. Things have changed. I still like McDonald's better in places like Thailand because the staff is so high quality, making for a much better experience than back here in the states. Plus, like DLuek says, there is the wai-ing statue too...

Back in the 1990's the Governor of Phuket once suggested Phi Phi be closed to tourism.
