Thai Rath reported that 10,000 Thai and foreign tourists had descended on Koh Phi Phi, the famous holiday island in Krabi southern Thailand, for the Songkran holidays. 

 

The media said that restaurant and resort owners were smiling again after two Songkran washouts in the last two years due to the pandemic.

Proving particularly popular was Maya Bay, recently reopened after several years of closure to help the area recover its natural environment after years of over-tourism.

 

It is thought that 400 million baht will be spent in the island economy during the New Year holidays.

what do those farangs sign?

I love the Andaman but stay well clear of Phuket and PP.

 

Probably a speedboat manifest or snorkel boat excursion.

So true. Been there years before "tzunami" (underwater nuke in fact) every Chinese New Year and loved everything about Phi Phi: reggae in the dark, all sorts of cocktails, girls, bungalows starting from 200THB, fish steaks, not so many people and lots of small almost empty beaches. and monkeys.
It all changed. Not interested anymore.
