Renowned as Thailand's most spectacular holiday destination, the Phi Phi Islands rise from the sea and feature sheer cliffs, golden beaches and are covered in lush jungle. Offering untold natural beauty, the islands enjoy a laid back lifestyle with little interruptions from the outside world.
Despite their popularity and stunning natural environment, the Phi Phi Islands are surprisingly affordable ensuring that such a breathtaking holiday destination is not exclusively reserved for the wealthy, although you'll certainly feel in the lap of luxury while you're there.
Consisting of six smaller islands, the Phi Phi Islands are situated in Phuket's south and the soft sand beaches, crystal waters, limestone cliffs and amazing scenery combine to make them one of southern Thailand's most sought after destinations.
The three most popular islands of the Phi Phi Islands include Bamboo Island, Koh Phi Phi Leh and Laem Tong. Each offers its own dazzling beauty and all are ideal for swimming, snorkelling and diving to discover the beauty that continues all the way down to beneath the island's brilliant blue waters.
Accommodation on the Phi Phi Islands is as varied as the islands themselves and caters for the full range of tourists that the islands attract. Budget conscious accommodation is available for backpackers and intrepid travellers while luxury resorts cater for holiday makers wishing to splash out and experience this tropical island paradise in absolute style.
Getting to the Phi Phi Islands is actually quite simple and it is only a matter of catching a ferry from the mainland. Ferry services operate daily making two return trips a day from Phuket and Krabi. There is also an additional ferry service direct to Phi Phi from Koh Lanta during the high season.
Offering a tropical oasis with some of the most tranquil and unique landscapes in Thailand, it's easy to see why the Phi Phi Islands are such a coveted holiday destination for travellers from all around the world.
