Phi Phi Island Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences


  • There are six islands in the group known as Phi Phi
  • Ko Phi Phi Don and Ko Phi Phi Lee are the most well-known islands but worthy of an inclusion for all Thailand tours.
  • Ko Phi Phi Don was devastated by the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004
  • The Ko Phi Phi Lee was used as a location for the film The Beach

Ko Phi Phi or the Phi Phi Islands is an archipelago of six islands found in the province of Krabi, in southern Thailand. Situated 50 kms southeast of Phuket, approaching the western shores of mainland Thailand, the islands are part of a protected maritime park.

Ko Phi Phi Don is the largest and main island of the group. With an area of 28 sq kms, it is the only one featuring permanent inhabitants. Initially populated by Muslim fishermen during the late 1940s, Ko Phi Phi Don became a coconut plantation. Featuring white sand beaches, the island is now a huge tourist destination, but still attracts backpackers who love its laidback atmosphere on trips to Thailand.

Ko Phi Phi Leh is the second largest island. Made famous for the filming of The Beach in 2000, Ko Phi Phi Leh features the Viking Cave, from which there is a thriving bird's nest soup industry.

Archeologically speaking, Ko Phi Phi is considered one of the oldest communities in Thailand, dating back to prehistoric periods. More recently, the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami destroyed most of the island’s infrastructure, but redevelopment was swift, with stricter regulations for the islands in place.

With coral reefs and limestone karsts featured in and around the archipelago, visitors can enjoy snorkeling and climbing, in addition to kayaking and sunbathing on Thailand.tours 

Shoppers will love the colourful batiks the region is known for handcrafting, and one might be spectator to the various longtail boat races.

A short ferry ride from Phuket, the Ko Phi Phi makes a wonderful day or stopover excursion for those looking to capture some of Thailand’s most natural beauty.
