Neighbouring Islands

Koh Yung Island (Mosquito Island)
North of Phi Phi Don, Koh Yung has some well preserved offshore coral gardens that make for great snorkeling. The island gets it's name from the black clouds of mosquitoes at sunset.

Koh Phai Nok Island (Bamboo Island)
A tiny 700-metre island surrounded by coral reef. Located just east of Koh Yung. Small beaches on the north and east coasts; coral gardens to the south.

Koh Bida Nai and Koh Bida Nok
Small islands visited mainly by divers for their underwater scenery. Koh Bida Nok is very good for both advanced and beginners with both shallow and deep dive sites.

Thai Holidays & Festivals

Many Thais travel during festivals and holidays, so boats can be crowded and flights, especially from Bangkok, fully booked. Below are some of the more important festival dates to check with before making your travel plans.

  • January: New Year. Calms down around January 6th.
  • February: Chinese New Year. Date varies with the calendar - around the 2nd full moon. Ferries are busy.
  • April: Songkran Festival (Thai New Year). This is the water festival when many Thais return to their home. Don't expect to travel easily around this time as buses, flights and ferries are very busy. This is a major holiday in Thailand.
  • November: Loy Kratong. A beautiful festival where floating 'kratongs' with lighted candles are placed on water to take away bad luck. Not too many people traveling at this time of year.
  • December: Christmas. High season. Book all transportation early.
