After our buffet breakfast in the restaurant by the pool, we decided to tackle the steep climb to the island view point.
It was already hot and we had been warned that there were many steps. So with hat and sunscreen, off we went!
About half way up we got our first glimpse of the vista to come.
Eventually we reached the pay station, 20 baht (A 60 cents), but it was still a long way to the summit.
As we approached the top of the climb we passed through a grove of cashew nut trees. I’m not sure it it was a plantation as the trees. were spaced randomly. It almost looked as though they were self sown. Anyway the trees had cashew apples with the seed pods attached. Many had fallen to the ground.
At last we reached the view point. I was exhausted but we were rewarded with a magnificant view. Koh Phi Phi Don is made up of two elongated islands joined together by a narrow isthmus All the development is on this narrow strip.
And of course we ended the day with anther seafood dinner!
