Koh Phi Phi is the island chain made famous by the movie The Beach staring Leonardo DiCaprio. This photo was of a monkey on Koh Phi Phi Don, the largest island in the chain. We were watching a storm coming in an the monkey just decided to join us. By the way, Phi Phi is pronounced pee pee just like… well, you know.

A little about Thai words. Koh means “island.” Every island in Thailand is preceded with that except Phuket, which, because of its large size, the koh is dropped. Don means “big,” so Koh Phi Phi Don is the largest island. Leh means “little,” and there is a Koh Phi Phi Leh, where the famous beach is located and happens to be a very busy national park now.
