Known as the 'jewels of the Andaman Sea ', the six islands in the Koh Phi Phi group are Phi Phi Don, Phi Phi Leh, Bamboo Island , Yung Island , Bida Nok and Bida Nai. The first is the only one inhabited; the rest can be visited on organised day trips from the mainland, or from Phi Phi Don itself. Phi Phi Island was made famous by the movie ”The Beach” a visit should be a top priority on any Krabi holiday. In a province filled with amazing and dramatic scenery, Phi Phi is even more amazing and more dramatic! Picture towering green cliffs, rising up from a glittering turquoise sea, and endless white sandy bays dotted along the shore, and you begin to have some idea of what awaits you here. But even after seeing the photos, the reality never fails to blow people away.
One is completely free of human inhabitants (Phi Phi Lei), and the other is without roads (Phi Phi Don). There’s no schedule, no hustle-and-bustle, no reason to be in a hurry.
Accommodation Guide :
If you wish to stay in Phi Phi to take full advantage of what the islands have to offer, this is possible in one of the many hotels and resorts on the largest island of Phi Phi Don. Bungalows are the accommodation of choice on Phi Phi; in fact, there aren’t many other options. The place is very kind to budget-minded backpackers – rooms at the one-star (or less) end of the rating scale far outnumber upmarket resorts – but there are a few havens of luxury for those who wish to experience paradise in style.
Travelling to Phi Phi is easy. Ferry services make return trips twice daily departing from Phuket and Krabi, with prices for one-way trips starting at 250 baht. A regular ferry service from Koh Lanta direct to Phi Phi also operates in the high season. Tickets can be booked at any travel agency or at the piers.
