The Phi Phi Islands are an archipelago consisting of the Great Phi Phi Island in the north and smaller Ko Phi Phi Le in the south, along with a four smaller islands around it. It was designated a National Park of Thailand in 1983.
Great Phi Phi Island is shaped like an irregular dumbbell, with two sets of green hills on either end of two half-moon bays. The dreamy blue sea of the small island, Ko Phi Phi Le, is featured in the 2000 film “The Beach” starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
These sun-touched islands are full of soft, white beaches, surrounded by tranquil blue waters, and contain a number of natural caves and unspoiled natural features that any visitor would find irresistible.
vivienvivienLittle Phi Phi Island and Big Phi Phi Island are separated by about 2 kilometers, surrounded by cliffs. The terrain is dangerous and there are several huge limestone caves. The island has not undergone any development, nor does it provide accommodation. The wild monkeys are full of mountains, but the water quality is particularly clear, especially suitable for diving. There are scenic spots such as Maya Bay and Viking Caves. Maya Bay can be used for diving. There are many petrels inhabiting the Viking Caves, so it is also called "bird's nest cave". It is precisely because of the clear waters and snow-white beaches that this place was chosen as the location for the Hollywood movie "Beach".
M48***13The Mosquito Island in Krabi is a very interesting island here. It looks like a big mosquito on the sea from a certain direction, with a pointed mouth and very cartoon. You can go up to the island, and here is also a rock climbing place for you to think about. You might as well go up and play.
_We***45It takes a little bit of time to get to this place. make sure to rent out the speed boats. You can choose between a group your or a private tour. I would recommend a private tour because the group tours can be a little crowded. great views of the monkeys. the water is so clean and blue it looks amazing. Definitely worth it.
Maya Bay is located in the southwestern part of Little Phi Phi Island. The entire Phi Phi Island reef stands on the ground and there are few beaches, so the beaches of Maya Bay are particularly pleasant. Maya Bay is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and the beach is white. The beach is small, and the 100-meter-high cliff is extraordinary, like a huge hand protecting the Maya Bay.
The sea is blue and the shore is dotted with delicate coconut trees. There is a typical tropical island atmosphere for viewing and diving. Leonardo DiCaprio's film "Beach" is shot in Maya Bay.
Tip: The beaches of Maya Bay are mixed with some corals and shells, so your bare feet may get scratched. It is best for visitors to wear soft-soled slippers for fun and safety. In addition to the masterpieces of the Oscar winners, Maya Bay was also a location used in King Kong and Jurassic Park.
Thailand happened somewhat as a last minute birthday present to myself in May. There’s something to be said about the ease of packing your bags and waltzing into a new country the next day, this all thanks to its inclusive visa-free policy!
The last four pictures are taken in Phuket, where I landed and stayed for two days. I was then transported by boat to Phi Phi (first five images), where I spent the better part of my vacation. You couldn’t ask for a better place to reflect and practice gratitude as you leap into another year of life. Phi Phi is small, so I recommend you spend two or three days in Phuket or Bangkok first for a more wholesome Thai experience. But it’s not to be missed: the beaches and seabeds are picturesque and the nights feel like Ibiza.

During the daytime, take a look at the most beautiful and famous spots of the big and small Phi Phi Islands. Take a look at Kamamoto Island and drive through the Bird's Nest Cave in the direction of Little Pippi. It is impossible to get off the boat and can only be seen from afar; then continue to watch some sea-mountain rocks like Pippi, followed by Monkey Island; then drive into the famous Maya Bay, which is the beach of lovers; Visitors go to the big Phi Phi Island for a buffet lunch; after lunch, they will arrange a sloppy time, usually at Runtee Beach, and finally take everyone to another beautiful bamboo island.
Mahya Bay is surrounded by mountains on three sides and the beach is white, famous for Leonardo's movie "Beach". The beach is small, and the 100-meter-high cliff is extraordinary, like a huge hand protecting the Maya Bay. The sea is blue and the shore is dotted with delicate coconut trees.

In the early morning, walking through quiet streets, hotels, restaurants, bars, diving schools, travel agents and small vendors are densely distributed around the alleys. The streets are bustling from morning to night, and the air is filled with a relaxed and romantic atmosphere. The birds sing in the trees and entertain themselves. The cats are playing on the roadside, so they are not laid back. Many Europeans and Americans will choose to stay on the big PP island for a few days. They will not be too busy with us.
At noon, pull a lounge chair to enjoy the warm sunshine on the beach, leisurely flip a few pages of books, sip a colorful freshly squeezed tropical fruit juice, occasionally make a stay, take a nap, there are also The sound of the continuous waves is faintly accompanied, so good!
You can go for a walk in the evening and feel the cool sea breeze. At the intersection of the bay, eat, drink, and play.
Phi Phi Island is small in size, from Tongsai Bay in Phi Phi Island to Lodara Bay in the north, the shortest walk is only 5 minutes.
1, there is no decent road on the cruise
Phi Phi Island. From the Tonsai Bay where the pier is located to the beach in the north, you need to take a boat. It takes about 30 minutes by boat to the northernmost bay, 100 baht per person, only two shifts a day, and the charter price is around 600 baht. The island's dining, entertainment and other facilities are concentrated in the vicinity of Ton Sai Bay. When booking a hotel, you need to consider the transportation factor.
2, long tail boat
long tail boat is the main means of transport in Phi Phi Island, as convenient as a taxi in a land city, each boat can take 5-6 people, and it is very cheap to collect a few people to collect the boat. And the charter is very comfortable.
I got my diving licence in Phi Phi island! Getting the diving licence is the purpose for the whole trip! Spent days to get trained and finally managed to completed the exams! Although it was tiring but worth it! I am planning to get Advanced open water licence in the future! Just get myself motivated haha
