Travel Thailand Guide : The Beauty of Phi Phi Island

Maya Bay - Phi Phi Island

Regarding as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Thailand's Andaman Sea, the Phi Phi Island or “Koh Phi Phi” in Thais, is part of Krabi province. With 1.20 hours by modern ferry or 2.30 hours by tourist boat from Phuket port, tourists will arrive to the island with huge impression on its magnificent landscape. Although this little paradise island from Thailand was one of the most damaged spots from the tragedy tsunami strikes in 2004, but all the happiness had now been re-built and everything seems to be reformed back strongly.

Koh Phi Phi is composed of 6 islands with 2 main rockies, tree-covered islets, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. The Phi Phi Don is the largest island of the group, and is the great site where several long white powdery beaches attracted millions of visitors for their sun-bathe and swim each year. It is also the main and the only island in the group to find accommodations, foods, drinks, entertainments and every other thing needed for your stay and vacation.

While another is the rocky Phi Phi Leh, a smaller island to the south, has shallow coral gardens, teeming with fish and perfect for snorkelling. It is also an excellent site for a day-trip. And if you do, don’t forget to take a look at the Viking cave. This historic site reputedly contains ancient wall pictures painted by Viking or seafaring people. It’s definitely a worth site to visit.

After all day long with beach activities, it’s time for you to get wild and free. Heading to Ton Sai Bay for a wonderful evening out, you’ll find that this area is so special to have parties and to meet some new friends from friendly locals to foreign tourists from different part of the world. The area is also filled with incredible fire shows on the beach, Thai kick boxing and cabaret nights which can keep you amazed and fun all night long.

Find further information from any in-bound tour operators who organizing day trips and packages in Thailand. I’m sure they all will be able to provide you suggestions on the Phi Phi Island trip.
