Ko Phi Phi

Progress on the island can be measured in different ways. For those who have a stake in developing the island these photos are probably indicators of success. Beachfront resorts are offering all the amenities, including airconditioning and satellite television. I suspect that in a few short years Ko Phi Phi will be fully developed; hopefully, it can be done in a sustainable manner. Those seeking a quite refuge will need to find another island.

Construction and infrastructure improvement is evident everywhere on the island.
