Things to do while waiting for ferry?

Hello travelers!

No sure if I'm posting in the right place. But saw a similar post in the Phuket forum but there's no replies.

My partner and I will be travelling to Ko Phi Phi on 1st July 2013. We will be travelling from Phuket and our flight is expected to land at 9AM. Therefore, we will miss the morning ferry which leaves at 830AM.

We will be staying in Holiday Inn and have arranged the transfer with them.

Assuming the land transport brings us to Rassada Pier by 1015? We will have approximately 2-3 hours of waiting time for the 130PM ferry.

Does anyone have any suggestion on how to spend the waiting time productively?

Maybe any places of interest or activities near the pier?

Hi Zephyr

Just have a chilled beer with your partner and listen to some music or try out some thai food and mix up with local who are also travelling.

Nowt to do at the Rassada Pier I'm afraid. Personally our driver stopped a few places - we had lunch, got a SIM card for my ipad. I was hoping there was a 711 at the pier but alas there isn't anything. I'd recommend you stop at one to grab drinks and snacks for your room at the holiday inn. Way expensive at the holiday inn so just a tip for you.

Oooo,... Okay. Seems like there really isn't much by the pier.

Anyways, thanks for the suggestions!
