  • We used a tour organised via our hotel. We didn't go onto the island but the park rangers chased us on their boat to pay the fee. A 200% markup for foreigner's. The snorkelling around the island was.....  more »
  • Perfect destination if you are in Thailand. You can rent a long tail boat and go explore all the islands in the area and all the bays, beaches and lagoons. You can get here by ferry from Phuket or Krabi. You can buy return tickets from the island and they are cheaper that in the airport. I recommend to stay there for at least 4 nights. It's way better that taking a 1 day trip from Phuket and you have so many things to do.
  • Firstly it's Phi Phi Leh (not Lee!) pronounced "pee pee lay" if you're interested. It's a beautiful place with excellent diving away from the tourist bays. It went downhill from around 2006 when I first visited, back then there was brilliant snorkeling even in Phi Leh Bay (aka Blue Lagoon) whereas now there is nothing there and you'd probably be killed anyway if you tried due to the scandalous amount of boat traffic. The authorities have closed Maya Bay (aka The Beach) since last year (2018) thankfully so maybe that bay will now recover its ecosystem. Best advice I can give is to hire a long-tail boat from Phi Phi Don and visit this island early morning before the crowds arrive. Also a good place to learn to scuba dive if you plan on doing that, good chance of seeing turtles and almost guaranteed to see reef sharks and blue spotted rays.
  • Amazing wonderland on the earth. I spent two days in Phi Phi Island and I regret for my so short stay. One can not see the beauty of the beaches and island in short period. I love the place and I recommend you must go once in a lifetime.
  • This place is famous for scuba diving. It takes approximately 20 min by Speed boat. Water is shallow and blue-green coloured. I could see very big jelly fish on water surface. I didn't dive but my wife shared the underwater experience. She was able to see very rich sea life.. star fish, clown fish, blue yellow orange coloured fish and many more. One of my friend saw shark. Try to reach early in morning. We started at 7:30 am from pier (paid 400THB environmental tax). There were very few people and boat.
  • One of the most impressive place in all over Thailand. This was our highlight Every night beach party , perfect weather , lots of activities to do. If I will ever go there then I will visit this place again for sure.
