The first time in Phi Phi I had to take a long tail. No other boats going there. There were bungalows mostly. I wanted to take a shower and went to the shower area and many girls and guys naked in a circle surrounded by a tarp with a well in the middle and a bucket. It was a shock for me but boy was it nice to see all these naked girls from all over the world and not caring, just bathing. I feel really old now and a little depressed that there is no place left like this, maybe on the earth.

phi phi certainly had a different feeling when I started going there many years ago. it is so built up now it is amazing. what little septic system there is seems to be tainting what little ground water there is. I stayed in a decent hotel there a couple years and the water had a distinctive rotten egg smell. a great party place for the party boppers but I don't think I will go there again. pattaya now more my style.

My first question is: Where did you meet your Thai girlfriend that speaks English? Big problem #1 Koh Phi Phi. Big problem #2 I bet you do not speak a single word of Thai. Big problem #3 Opening shop with a Thai woman you barely know. Big problem #4 Getting married. #5 EVERYTHING. Sorry to tell you the raw truth but you sound like a common newbie that is about to get taken to the cleaners like thousands maybe millions before you. But hey go ahead and don,t listen. In less than a year you will be asking us how to save your ass from the Thais.

Yeah I am here, read all the answers and here is my :

My girlfriend has already a shop in phi phi more than 1 year.

I met her there at the beach.

I know to speak thai language enough to understand and make myself understood by others.

I asked her about the problems you mentioned and she first got angry and she said that she doesnt know anything about this, and that there are many nepals that own shops and etc.

So now I think about this method:

Going to visit her for 2 weeks and learn the field,

If it will look like we cannot do it (of course I will Ask the other not locals people about everything, even about the payment to the police as she said) then we dont, and if it looks like we can so we will.

What you think?

^ Good answer BB...

If at all possible , stay there for months rather than weeks before you do anything.

Your girlfriend getting "angry" about your questions is a rather odd response , isnt it?

That is unless she is a Phi Phi Islander who is offended by her island having a very bad name for intrigue and corruption ( which it has )

So if she is a Phi Phi local , or a South Thai from nearby , your plan has a better chance.

How much money does she want you to put in or is she doing the shop from the money she saved from the last shop ?

Hey haha thanks for your reply.

She got angry not because I ask , because I told her about what the people here say , and she got angry because she knows the others scams and doesnt believe it in phi phi ( or she not like this anyway).

the plan is to visit her for 2 weeks and learn the field.

then work for more 10 months or something and come again to live with her for 1 month or more then consider openning.

she didn't ask any money yet , she said she will save money from her shop for 1 year too.(so I think she thinks we will be doing 50% 50%).

she originaly from satun. she had a shop in koh tao for some years and moved to phi phi because fighting with friends.

in phi phi the shop she has is small and close to her sister's shop that is bigger than her's.
