Phi Phi Li, “famous” as the location where some of the Leonardo di Caprio movie “The Beach” was filmed gets invaded by hundreds of tourists a day.  We arrived just after 1800 when most of the boats had departed leaving a mooring buoy free and time to enjoy the sunset.  We were last here on 24 December 2004 two days before the Boxing Day Tsunami.
