Koh Phi Phi Travel Guide

Koh Phi Phi is a beautiful Island located in Thailand that can be easily accessed through Phuket. It is great for those people that love doing boat trips during the day and partying at night. Friends of mine from Calgary who own a massage clinic there said that this place was definitely a must see adventure on their trip to Thailand. There aren’t any cars on the island and the main form of transportation aside from walking is to take a boat. The accommodation in Koh Phi Phi ranges from low-end hostels all the way up to high-end resorts and everything in between.

For the high-end resorts, however, you actually reach them by boat after you get off the main ferry. Since they are located on the North tip of the island, you can catch a long-tail boat. There is no shortage of things to do on this island and I will go over some of my favorite.

Day Trips
Day trips from Koh Phi Phi are a pretty popular thing to do here and the town is actually quite quiet in the afternoons because everyone is out on the water. You can organize day trips through your hotel or anywhere that sells boat tickets and a typical one costs around $11 a person. These boat tours often take you to places like Monkey Beach, Maya Bay, and other local Islands to go snorkeling.

There’s definitely no shortage of restaurants in Koh Phi Phi and they include a ton of Western food options along with delicious Thai spots. The mini-marts have everything you would ever need in a place. Spending the day tanning at the beach or by your hotel pool is always a good way to relax and take in Koh Phi Phi. Most of the hostels don’t have their own pools, but you can pay a small fee to go lounge at a hotel pool close by.

Night Life
You can’t come to Koh Phi Phi and not enjoy a bucket or two and parting is a super fun part of the island and the beach parties at Slinkys and Stones go well into the evening. There is also the Moonlight bar which I feel has more of the vibe. If you feel like staying in a party place, you can go to Ibiza dorm Sunset. Now, this place is about twice as busy and twice as loud. Each bar actually turns into one another and their music all kind of just like mashes together. It is usually a lot of fun; make sure you check them out when you are in Koh Phi Phi.

After recovering from a night out, going for a quick massage to make yourself feel a little better is always a good idea. Other fun things I would recommend to do during your time here is to hike up to the Koh Phi Phi viewpoint, pet all the Wildcats on the island, and spend a bit of your money on cheap clothing.
