I've got fond memories of Phi Phi. The view from the top of the hill looking over the sliver of sand connecting the two main land masses was nice, although it's been some years now since I was there and I imagine development has spoiled that uniqueness somewhat.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Head north to Khao Lak - nine beaches along 25 km of the Andaman coast. Stay at Bang La On or Bang Niang.
You could be next.

Haven't been to phi phi since '88, Its was totaled in 2005 during the Tsunami so its all rebuilt and from what i hear not nice at all. Rent a bike an head up the west coast, laguna area, Layan beach are beautiful.
Koh Lanta is nice during the off season but not much happening there. Never cared for Khao Lak, its just one road down the center with nice resorts on the beach of thats what your looking for
How about head to Khao Sok and stay near the water in tree house?

Thanks for ur advices. I guess I'll head to one of the Islands or summat.
Today rode the bike to Wat Chalong, Big Buddha. And the beaches between Rawang up to and including Surin beach. Was a good bike ride.
Cheers.
