Phi Phi is Thailand's island-superstar. It's been in the movies. It's the topic of conversation for travelers all over Thailand. For some, it's the only reason to touchdown in Phuket. Even with all the hype, it doesn't disappoint.

Phi Phi's beauty is a large chunk of the allure. The islands, when approached by boat, rise from the sea like a fortress. Sheer cliffs tower overhead, then give way to beach-fronted jungle. It's love at first sight.

The second part of the why-we-love-this-place story is attitude: few places on the planet are this laid-back. Of the two islands, one is completely free of human inhabitants (Phi Phi Lei), and the other is without roads (Phi Phi Don). There's no schedule, no hustle-and-bustle, no reason to be in a hurry.

As an added bonus, Phi Phi is affordable. Destinations this beautiful are often reserved for those that can pay dearly. That's not the case here; Phi Phi has something for every budget. You might be surprised

Where to stay on Phi Phi Island


Bungalows are the accommodation of choice on Phi Phi; in fact, there aren't many other options. The place is very kind to budget-minded backpackers – rooms at the one-star (or less) end of the rating scale far outnumber upmarket resorts – but there are a few havens of luxury for those who wish to experience paradise in style.

For those who aren't carrying all their worldly possessions on their back, the quiet northern tip of Phi Phi Don offers excellent accommodation. Away from the noise and basking in glorious tropical surrounds, the all-under-one-roof resorts cater to your every need.
