Phi Phi Islands (Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh) are located in the Andaman sea, 30 miles southeast of Phuket in the province of Krabi, Thailand. They are part of Ko Phi Phi National Park.
It takes approximate 90 minutes by boat from the port of Phuket, Krabi, Koh Lanta and Ao Nang. If you are in a hurry, option for the “luxury” version (and more expensive) is in Speed Boat or floatplane.
Why should go to Phi Phi islands?
Phi Phi brings together some of the most beautiful seaside landscapes of the planet. In particular, the uninhabited island of Phi Phi Lee (or Phi Phi Leh) where the beach of Maya Bay lies, shot in Danny Boyle’s film “The Beach”, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Guillaume Canet and Virginie Ledoyen.
Phi Phi is one of the hottest dive spot on the planet. The warm and fish-abundant waters are exceptional, thanks to the natural reserve. The whale shark is visible during night dives (very popular in Phi Phi).
The Phi Phi nightlife is intense, especially around bars, restaurants and shops of Ton Sai Village. The beach bars and nightclubs on Loh Dalam Bay offer awesome fire shows.
