Thailand’s most famous islands are now being replaced by virgin, untouched places. . In 2015, we have the knowledge and experience of our Phi Phi Island tours, Phi Phi Island tours, Phi Phi Island, Phuketten Phi Phi Island, Phi Phi Island, Phi Phi Island, the more beautiful ones.
The first settlement on the Phi Phi island, which was empty and unexplored until 1945, was in 1950 with people from Phang Nga Bay in the north of the island. People who came to the island from Krabi and other regions established colonies here. Currently, the majority of the population of the island consists of Muslim fishermen. Before the tourists visit the island, while the land was used as coconut farms, with the discovery of the island and the increasing number of visitors, the coconut fields were replaced by restaurants and hotels.
Although Phi Phi is thought to be the only island, Phi Phi is a group of 6 islands in the south of Thailand. Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Leh are the best known of the archipelago group. Koh Phi Phi Don is the largest (28 km² – 8 km length, 3.5 km width) and the settlement is the candidate, while the small one in Koh Phi Phi Leh is the island where only day trips are organized. The second largest island after the Koh Phi Phi Don in the archipelago is the island of Koh Phi Phi Leh, in which The Beach, starring Leonarda DiCaprio, was shot in 2000. As a result of the Indian Ocean Tsunami on December 26, 2004, the island of Koh Phi Phi Don was destroyed. Thousands of people lost their lives and 70% of the buildings on the island were destroyed. After the tsunami, Phi Phi island was rebuilt as a result of the aid from around the world and today it is one of the most breathtaking islands in Thailand.
Phi Phi islands, one of the most striking islands in Southeast Asia, have become more and more attractive to visitors rather than those who participate in daily island tours in recent years. Since we joined the daily tour of the Phi Phi islands about 6 years ago, we wanted to stay there and explore the island instead of doing a daily tour to Phi Phi. Island visitors are mostly young and backpackers. It is not an island that we can recommend for luxury lovers. If you say necessarily luxury, of course, there are hotels on the island suitable for you.
.PHI PHI ISLAND BEACHES
There are two main beaches on the island of Phi Phi Don. One of them is the Tonsai beach where boats and ferries are docked and the other is Loh Dalam beach. Loh Dalam is not very deep water boats can not berth here so it has managed to become the most beautiful region of the island. No more human noise, no boat engine sound. There is no one but the inhabitants and visitors.
Laem Thong Beach: It is the most beautiful beach with clear blue water where transportation is provided only by boats to the north of the island. The beach is just opposite Bamboo Island, close enough to make me say I’m there if I take two fathoms. But don’t try.
Loh Bagao Bay: It is one of the longest sandy beaches of Phi Phi Island with a length of 800 meters. If you want to take a 3 km journey from Tonsai, you can get there for free. But you must remember that it will be a seriously challenging journey!
And the last beach is Long Beach on the right side of Tonsai. The most important activity on the island of Phi Phi is to climb to the scenery and watch the unique view of Phi Phi.
PHI PHI ISLAND NIGHT LIFE
The atmosphere of Phi Phi Island is something that will entertain everyone. This is a tropical island that will meet your expectations from daytime activities to nightly entertainment. Nightlife on the island of Phi Phi, known for its beach parties, is all on Loh Dalam beach. There are cafes and pubs in the center of Tonsai, but the main night entertainment takes place in the bars on the beach. If you are staying on the west side of the Tonsai area, do not go to the bars on the Loh Dalam beach by the sea. We made that mistake and had to go all the way back. Since the island is very serious, the beach, which is wide and wide during the day, is flooded at night. If you don’t want to get wet below the waist, your route should be to use the Tonsai center. Another night on the island is a fire show. It is necessary to go to the east side of Tonsai.
TRANSPORTATION TO PHI PHI ISLAND
The only way to reach Phi Phi Island is by boat. However, you can get there by boat not only from Phuket, but from Krabi and Koh Lanta. Those coming from Phuket should go to Rassada pier and get on boats, and those coming from Krabi should go to Klong Jilad pier, 4 km from Krabi town. As we stepped off the boat and set foot on the pier, the officers asked for money. 20 THB per person “stepped money”
