Phi Phi Islands Travel Information


Phi Phi Islands Description:

The Phi Phi Islands in Southern Thailand's Phang Nga Bay are home to some of the most visited beaches in the country.

Phi Phi Don, the largest and only inhabited island of the six in the archipelago chain, has become fairly developed in recent years, but its newly paved streets are still traversed on foot and bicycle as only emergency services vehicles are allowed to drive on the island.

From Phi Phi Don’s Ton Sai village, travelers on luxury tours of Thailand can choose from a host of maritime activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. Ton Sai also has a thriving nightlife full of dance music, strong drinks, fire spinners, and the occasional Thai Kickboxing show.

The island chain features a plethora of white beaches both crowded and secluded to choose from. Phi Phi Ley, the second largest island in the chain, was the setting for the 2000 film "The Beach," which featured one of the island's sheltered bays as the setting for a group of travelers trying to build their own version of a tropical island paradise.

Hat Yao (Long Beach), Loh Bayao, and Laem Tong are great for snorkeling, and Loh Muh Dee, Ao Runtee, and Loh Bagao offer quiet seclusion and soft sand for travelers on Thailand tours.

Wrapped in turquoise waters, the Phi Phi Islands are riddled with limestone cliffs to dive from, coral reefs to explore, and dense jungle forests to traverse.

Best Time to Visit Phi Phi Islands:

The archipelago’s best weather is from November through March. Annual rains fall from April through October, which can make the seas choppy, but the island’s plant life is particularly beautiful this time of year.

How to get to Phi Phi Islands:

Lying in the Bay of Phang Nga off the coast of Southern Thailand, the Phi Phi Islands are best accessed by private boats launching from Krabi province.

The Ko Phi Phi Island chain is one of the most talked about destinations for travelers on Thailand tours. The pristine beaches, excellent diving, and stunning sunsets are a must-see.
