Everything you Need to Know about Tonsai East
Tonsai East can be considered the beach area past the gloriously named Chukit Resort leading to Long Beach. While not as busy as Tonsai Village it still has shopping opportunities (but scarcer and scarcer the nearer to Long Beach you get) and several large eateries that host nightly entertainment.
The one great advantage of this stretch is the array of wonderful views out over the bay and Phi Phi Leh. If you don’t feel up to the 15-minute stroll into Tonsai you can catch a water taxi to the pier.
