Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

To be honest, I'm not really a beach person. But, if I'm going to spend a weekend at the beach, it might as well be the one where they filmed the movie 'The Beach'. Apparently there are a lot of others that feel the same way. So, what started out as a small group heading to the beach for the weekend, exploded into a group of 75. Two groups chartering private speed boats and another renting a yacht for the weekend. Long boats are essential transportation to take you from your hotel to dinner or to other parts of the island.
Without a doubt one of the most beautiful beach settings, there is a reason this place has become popular. Scuba and snorkeling opportunities galore, for those who can't sit still on the beach, like me. Unfortunately, its popularity has led to the emergence of a cancun-style party area in the main part of the island. It's possible to escape, but something to be mindful of if you are considering visiting the island. This is a shot where we ventured into the touristy area. We discovered a pair of panties on the beach, which set of a little mystery game. Yair isn't looking so innocent.
