5 Things to Do in Phi Phi When It Rains

Rainy Day Activities in Phi Phi

This list of 5 things to do in Phi Phi when it rains will certainly be handy for all those spending their holiday on this island where 95% of things to do are open-air. Like any tropical paradise, Phi Phi shows its brightest face under a cloudless sky, when the sun shines and enhances the turquoise waters and white sandy beaches.

Unfortunately, Phi Phi is not located in Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland, so rainy days also happen on this remote group of islands lying right between Phuket and Krabi provinces in southern Thailand. Luckily for vacationers, there’s still a pleasant choice of rainy day activities available in Phi Phi – enough to allow for an agreeable moment until the end of the rainfalls which, apart in the middle of monsoon season, usually do not last that long.

You can choose to enjoy a full treatment at one of the top-notch spas belonging to upscale hotels such as Zeavola Resort, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort or Holiday Inn Phi Phi Resort.

    Take a Thai Cooking Class

    An excellent way to kill two birds with one stone, taking a Thai cooking class in Phi Phi allows you to escape the rain for a few hours and to learn how to prepare the favourite Thai dishes that will impress your friends and family once you’re back home from holiday. Located in the centre of Tonsai Village, Pum’s Thai Cooking School is the most famous of the selection in Phi Phi. You can also find Thai cooking classes in stylish resorts such as the Zeavola and Holiday Inn Phi Phi, both of them located in Laem Thong.

    As you’ll get wet anyway, rain doesn’t stop the divers from exploring the superb underwater sceneries situated near the Phi Phi Islands. You only can’t go diving when the sea is too rough. The downside to diving in the rain is that visibility is not as good as it is on a clear day. If you’re not yet a certified diver, you can take a course at one of the many dive centres available in Phi Phi. The theory is learned in classrooms and the first dives can be done in swimming pools or from the beach. This is a great way to learn something new that will permit you to enjoy scuba diving all around the world. Read More...

    Get in Shape at a Fitness Centre

    There’s a good choice of fitness centres in and outside hotels in Phi Phi. The most impressive gym is Banyan Fitness Centre. It features brand new machines, bench presses, running machines, weights and even a mini-Muay Thai kickboxing ring. Most of independent fitness centres are located in and near Tonsai Village. Despite their small sizes, they offer all the necessary equipment and coaches for you to work out safely – and escape from the rain for a while.

    Phi Phi hosts some great tattoo shops. With over 20 tattoo studios available throughout Tonsai Village, you have plenty of choice if you want to bring a permanent memory of your holiday in Phi Phi back home. A rainy day can offer you a great opportunity to jump ahead. However, as bathing and swimming are not allowed for at least a week after you get inked, just hope that the rain will come toward the end of your stay. Read More...
