More of a day trip, diving and party destination for the under forties, the island of Koh Phi Phi Don, with its main beat wedged between the small strip of the beautiful Ton Sai Bay. .

There are no cars, or taxis on the island. Only boat taxis which are just longtail boats are available to get yourself to and from the distant bays where the resorts are located. Using a taxi boat on personal hire is the best way to view the myriad of bays and beaches dotting the two islands making up Koh Phi Phi.

On the southern island of Koh Phi Phi Leh, you will find a less developed island with only a bunch of bungalows available at Maya Bay. Maya Bay is where they filmed the movie 'The Beach'. It is a very popular day trip spot so expect large crowds, but as the beach is quite long it is quite pleasurable. On the way to Maya Bay you will be taking past a lovely beach ruled by semi wild monkeys. If you visit in the morning, be sure to stay in the water as the monkeys are very hungry and will do the odd snatch and grab and may bite. Also on the way to Maya Bay you will past the Viking Cave and the safe snorkelling bay of Pileh.

Getting to Phi Phi is easy from four main points of departure. They are Ao Nang and Krabi Town on the Krabi mainland, Koh Lanta from the south, or the most popular Phuket from the west.

For a more family or romantic adventure, be sure to book one of the resorts on the eastern side of the main island where the bays are small and idyllic and far away from the late night music of Ton Sai Bay.

Maybe you should visit Phuket at least one time just for cirapmoson. In Phuket and nearby area you will find better beaches than . You will also have to take a long bus ride or pay for a flight instead of a 113 baht 2 hour bus ride from Ekamai. In Phuket you will have to deal with the tuk-tuk mafia for your local rides unlike the cheaper 10 baht rides in . Patong nightlife is like but more expensive and a smaller size. After numerous visits to you must have found something to interest you if only the cheaper rooms and cheaper transportation. So, in your case you should visit Phuket at least one time for cirapmoson. Just bring more money!
