Day 1 – Sightseeing and arrival

Daytime

The best way to get to Phi Phi is to take the ferry boat in the morning which offers a sightseeing tour at the same time. Available from Phuket and Krabi, these ferries take you around Koh Phi Phi Leh and stop for 20 minutes of snorkelling in Maya Bay (where the movie with Leo Di Caprio was shot) before arriving on the main island at lunchtime.

Once settled at your hotel, you can start to explore Tonsai Village on foot (there’s no car or motorized vehicles in Phi Phi) and find a restaurant that takes your fancy for lunch. In the afternoon, you can hire a long-tail boat near the jetty and head to Bamboo Island (40 minutes away) for a relaxing time filled with sunbathing, swimming, and snorkelling.

Evening

In the evening, indulge yourself with a dinner at one of Phi Phi’s best restaurants before partying until late on Loh Dalum Beach, which hosts a cool choice of beachfront venues featuring potent buckets, fire shows and loud music. If an open-air disco is not your style, a slightly quieter ambience can be found at Sun Flower bar and restaurant, located toward the northern end of Loh Dalum. If you like Thai boxing, you also could go to Phi Phi Reggae Bar which permits punters to punch each other: after a few drinks, the inebriated wannabe boxers offer a hilarious show.

Day 2 – Viewpoint and departure

Daytime

After a hearty breakfast and the preparation of your luggage at your hotel, you can head to Phi Phi Viewpoint. It takes about 20 minutes to climb up there, and the view is worth the effort.

On the way down, you can take a stroll along the inland path that leads to the eastern part of Tonsai Bay and have a lunch there before to get back to your hotel, then catch the last ferry that leaves Phi Phi at 14:30 to Phuket, or 15:30 to Krabi.
