Phi Phi islands review
As seen on many postcards, Phi Phi islands are one of the most famous destinations in Thailand, the real Thai island superstars. Phi Phi islands welcome with exotic views from any angle, towering limestone cliffs, amazingly pretty lagoons, and the wow Beach that was home to Leonardo Di Caprio once.
Koh Phi Phi archipelago consists of six islands. The bigger four islands are Koh Phi Phi Don, Koh Phi Phi Leh, Koh Yung (also called Mosquito Island) and Koh Pai (also known as Bamboo Island). Koh Phi Phi Don is the largest of Phi Phi islands. Despite being the only island with accommodation options, it is almost without roads. At Koh Phi Phi Don, there is a spectacular viewpoint from where you can overlook the headland with the two bays. You can also practice climbing Tonsai Tower, or do longer trekking by crossing the island from one coast to another. With a cozy and lively town filled with street cats, Koh Phi Phi Don will not disappoint you.
Nearby, Koh Phi Phi Leh is “The Beach” famous and entirely free of humans. The National Park is protecting it alongside Koh Yung island, where no visitors are allowed either. Koh Phi Phi Leh’s curvy, bleached beaches, incredible lagoons (Maya Bay and Pileh Lagoon), and stunning jungle interiors are the Andaman Coast darlings. Surrounded by crystal clear waters with abundant marine life, Phi Phi islands have become a prime destination for snorkelers and divers in the Andaman Sea. Being a top-rated destination with tourists, expect to see good numbers of other people around Phi Phi islands. Still, it’s such a beautiful place that many tend to not really care or take notice.
