Why Koh Phi Phi is special ?
The Phi Phi Islands are in Thailand, between the large island of Phuket and the west Strait of Malacca coast of the mainland. The islands are administratively part of Krabi province. Ko Phi Phi Don is the largest island of the group, and is the most populated island of the group, although the beaches of the second largest island, Ko Phi Phi Lee, are visited by many people as well. The rest of the islands in the group, including Bida Nok, Bida Noi, and Bamboo Island (Ko Mai Phai), are not much more than large limestone rocks jutting out of the sea. The Islands are reachable by speedboats or Long-tail boats most often from Krabi Town or from various piers in Phuket Province.

Phi Phi Islands Thailand
Tips for you
The beauty of this place is spectacular! Stay here for the night so you can head to Maya Bay early morning & you can avoid the throng of tourists. These 2 places are like, near to each other.
I loved Phi Phi Island it was stunning, the only things that ruined it was the amount of boats in the water, it kind of ruined the view. We went on the early morning tour and thank goodness we did because it was even busy then. Apparently the later one is just crazy busy! The beach was beautiful and clean and the water was a stunning shade of blue/green and crystal clear. Just do be prepared for crowds, it's not really a nice relaxing beach it's a place you go to see take a few pictures then head on your way as it can be very, very busy as it's such a popular place to visit! Definitely somewhere you do have to visit to appreciate its incredibly beauty! Don't miss this one if you are in the area!
