"Phi Phi Don, Post-Tsunami" Ko Phi Phi Don by Rodan44

Ko Phi Phi Don Travel Guide: 490 reviews and 1,399 photos

My wife and I made a daytrip from Phuket to Phi Phi islands on 6 March 2005, only a little over two months since the Dec 26 tsunami.

The above picture is the scene at Ton Sai Beach, the main resort and business area on Phi Phi Don. Most remaining buildings still showed significant damage, and rubble was still being hauled off the island on barges. There were really no tourists in sight on land, only in boats in the bay. It is apparent that Phi Phi Don will have a long and hard struggle to recover from such a horrible disaster.

Another scene of devastation on Ton Sai Beach.

Yet another view of Ton Sai Beach.

Please visit the Phuket page on my personal website to see many more high quality photos from this destination.
