Phi Phi Islands are an island group located between the large island of Phucket and the Straits of Malacca coast of Thailand. It is one of the most famous and attractive islands in Thailand. Phi Phi Islands are very popular in Southeast Asia, and you should definitely consider visiting this beautiful islands when in Thailand!
Phi Phi Islands is a group of 6 islands, and it is part of Krabi Province. Two of the most popular islands are Ko Phi Phi Don and Ko Phi Phi Leh. You can stay at the lovely shores of Ko Phi Phi Don where it offers beautiful views, hotels, restaurants, and many activities.
You can get to Ko Phi Phi Don by taking a 1-hour speedboat or 2-hour ferryboat from either Phucket or Krabi. We took a flight from Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok, Thailand to Krabi International Airport, Krabi, Thailand. The flight took about 90 minutes, and it cost approximately $50/ticket one-way with Thai Airways depending on season as well (we went in April which the weather was perfect for most of the time). Upon arriving at Krabi International Airport, we took taxi to Klong Jirad Pier, Krabi where we bought speedboat ticket to Ao Tonsai Pier, Ko Phi Phi Don Island.
There are many things you can do from Ko Phi Phi Don. You can go on island hoping by boat to see all the spectacular islands. Some of the most beautiful places are Maya Bay, Viking Cave, Shark Point, and Monkey Beach. You will encounter many boat services on the island that offers tours to those places. We had our one day tour service from Thanarat Speedboat Service ธนรัตน์ ทัวร์ which we had so much fun.
We tried quite a few restaurants, and Anna's Restaurant is the probably the best on Ko Phi Pho Don. It was so good that we found ourselves coming back 2 times a day for the straight 3 days. This is probably the best Thai food that I ever tried, and I recommend everyone to give it a try.
