Phi Phi Islands, Thailand

by Mmeri

The Phi Phi Islands are a group of islands located in the Andaman Sea, off the southwestern coast of Thailand. Known for their stunning natural beauty, crystal-clear waters, and dramatic limestone cliffs, the Phi Phi Islands have become a popular destination for travelers seeking a tropical paradise experience.

The two main islands of the Phi Phi Islands group are Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. Phi Phi Don is the larger and more developed island, offering a range of accommodation options, restaurants, and vibrant nightlife. The island is known for its beautiful beaches, such as the popular Long Beach and Ton Sai Bay. Visitors can enjoy sunbathing, swimming, and engaging in various water sports like snorkeling and kayaking.

Phi Phi Leh, on the other hand, is a smaller uninhabited island that is famous for its stunning landscapes. Maya Bay, located on Phi Phi Leh, gained international fame after being featured in the movie “The Beach.” The bay’s white sandy beach and turquoise waters surrounded by towering cliffs make it a picture-perfect spot. Note that access to Maya Bay may be restricted due to environmental conservation efforts, but there are still plenty of other breathtaking spots to explore around Phi Phi Leh.

One of the must-do activities in the Phi Phi Islands is taking a boat tour around the archipelago. This allows you to visit various snorkeling spots, including the vibrant coral reefs of Bamboo Island and the marine-rich waters near Phi Phi Leh. Many tours also include stops at picturesque locations like Monkey Beach, where you can encounter playful monkeys, and Viking Cave, which is known for its ancient wall paintings.

Apart from water activities, you can also go hiking on Phi Phi Don to enjoy panoramic views of the islands and surrounding sea. There are viewpoints like the Phi Phi Viewpoint and the famous viewpoint at the Phi Phi Don Viewpoint Resort, which offer breathtaking vistas of the entire archipelago.

Phi Phi Islands offer a lively and vibrant atmosphere, particularly in the evenings, with numerous beach bars and restaurants where you can enjoy delicious Thai cuisine and refreshing drinks while taking in the scenic beauty around you.

The Phi Phi Islands’ stunning landscapes, pristine beaches, and lively ambiance make it a tropical paradise that attracts visitors from all over the world. It’s a place where you can enjoy the best of Thailand’s natural beauty and immerse yourself in the laid-back island vibe.

My Story

I fell in love with traveling when I was 5. I would watch the planes fly high above way out of my reach and I would say "Mama, look.. a plane!" and would run after it with my little friends pretending we knew where the plane was going. When I turned 8 I promised I would become a flight attendant someday and travel the world like I wanted.
