Book a tour of Phi Phi Island and see for yourself the stunning beauty that captivated the entire world.
The Leonardo DiCaprio movie ‘The Beach’ forever changed Phi Phi Island from a small archipelago out in the Andaman Sea to an international sensation. The film featured Maya Bay on Phi Phi Leh, a stunning turquoise bay surrounded by towering cliffs and caves.
It made the two main islands of the archipelago a major tourist attraction for tourists from around the world and helped to boost the image of Thailand as a must-see tropical destination.
You can take advantage of a Phi Phi Island Tour Booking to discover for yourself and your family the astounding beauty of these tropical gems.
Safeguarding Phi Phi Island
With the overwhelming popularity of Maya Bay as a tourist destination, the government of Thailand was forced to impose necessary conservation measures. They closed the bay to boat and pedestrian traffic in 2019. The closure has been extended until mid-2021 because of the dramatic improvements it’s made to the health and numbers of resident marine animals.
The good news is the rest of this magnificent chain of islands is still open to visitors, and you can still see Maya Bay in all its glory without entering the bay.
Phi Phi Island Tour Booking
When you book a tour of Phi Phi Island, you will get an entire day of sightseeing and adventure. Many of the tour companies operating in Phuket will pick you up in the morning at your accommodations and drop you back off at the end of the day as part of their service. This makes it easy to organize the whole family for a day discovery and fun out on the Andaman Sea.
Your boat will depart from the Andaman Cruise Pier on the eastern side of Phuket at around 10 AM. Your first stop will be at Green Island, where there is an abundance of colorful coral reefs.
Snorkeling and swimming is the first activity of the day, so be sure to pack your swimsuit, a change of clothes, some pocket money, and sunscreen. Avid snorkelers are also invited to bring along their own snorkeling gear, but a mask is provided, and fins can be rented onboard the boat.
From there, sit back and relax with a soft drink as the boat proceeds out to Phi Phi Island. The boat will circle Phi Phi Leh and stop near Maya Bay, Loh Samah Bay, Viking Cave, Pileh Lagoon and Monkey Beach on Phi Phi Don. You will have plenty of opportunities to snap pictures of these attractions from the boat. After that, it is time for a hearty lunch on Phi Phi Don, and after lunch, you can stroll along the walking street of the island.
When everyone is ready to depart from Phi Phi Don, you will set sail for Khai Nai; this is an island near Phuket that is perfect for some relaxing beach time, snorkeling or swimming, and water sports. At the end of your day of adventure, it’s just a short ride back to Phuket where your transportation will be waiting to whisk back to your hotel or condo.
