Phi Phi Island, with its playful and phonetically pleasing name, natural beauty and allure, and teeming jungles, is one of Thailand’s greatest tourist attractions. Phi Phi Island attractions give it a personality to match its physical attractiveness, with a one of the most laid-back social climates in the world. There are no roads on Phi Phi Don, and no permanent human inhabitants at all on Phi Phi Leh. For getting back to the land and away from the non-stop hustle of modern life, at an affordable price, the islands are hard to top.
1. Tonsai Village
Tonsai Village is located on the famous Phi Phi isthmus, encased by Tonsai Bay on the south and Loh Dalum on the North. There is a distinct difference in traffic in the village based on when the ferries arrive and depart. The last ferry leaves at 2:30pm, and before it drifts off to sea, the footpaths are bustling with walking and bicycle-riding day trippers. After 2:30pm, the village is at its most tranquil and relaxing until evening time, when businesses open up and the nightlife starts to warm up. Spending some of your Phi Phi Island holidays here is a must.
2. The Phi Phi Viewpoint
The Phi Phi Viewpoint allows tourists a healthy dose of hiking and then rewards them at trek’s completion with cold drinks, hammocks and even ice cream. From the Viewpoint’s top, Loh Dalum bay, all of Tonsai, and all of Phi Phi Leh can be viewed. There is a reggae bar as well where one can enjoy relaxing tunes as they drink in the beautiful vista and tasty cocktails.
3. Maya Bay
Sequestered by cliffs, this beautiful beach has become a tourist favourite since 1999, when it served as the main shooting locale for the Leonardo Dicaprio film, “The Beach”. An excellent place for sand, sun, sea and taking it easy.
4. Loh Dalum
Loh Dalum is one of the most pacifying and tranquil spots in the world. The water at this beach is warm, knee-deep and is undisturbed by waves. Also, it is conveniently located near plenty of interesting dining options and nightlife.
5. Monkey Beach
This beach, occasionally underwater at high tide, offers tourists the chance to feed monkeys fruit and snap memorable photos, as well as lounge seaside. It’s located on the west side of Tonsai Bay. Snorkelling is also a favourite past time at this scenic locale.
