Phi Phi Island holidays locate you in the area between Phuket Island and the Thai mainland – meaning that it is in a beautiful location. Although it was devastated by the tsunami in 2004, the infrastructure has now been rebuilt and the tourist trade is flourishing. The island is known for its outstanding beauty and is popular with those that want to get away from modern life and relax in amazing natural surroundings. It also has some lovely hotels and great restaurants for tourists to enjoy.
Cheap flights to Phi Phi Island are actually non-existent as it has no airport that serves it, meaning that the easiest way for Australians to get there is to take a cheap flight to Phuket International Airport. All of the major airlines run this route from the Australian mainland, meaning that finding a flight is easy. From there, the easiest way to get to Phi Phi Island is to take a ferry from Rasada Pier in Phuket, which leaves for Phi Phi Island on a regular basis. To get to the pier from the airport, a taxi ride of about 30 minutes will need to be taken.
The added advantage to taking a ferry is that they often take the tourist on a tour around the island, so that the tourist can see all of the natural beauty that the coast has. The ferries are usually quite fast and also have a large capacity, which means that there is usually no need to book the ferry in advance.
