What to see in Koh Phi Phi

In Koh Phi Phi, apart from the famous viewpoint (in fact there are 3) which offers a superb view of the island, most of the places to see are offshore. To discover them, you will therefore have to either hire a longtail boat or buy day trips at local travel agencies. The most popular tours go to Maya Bay, the beach in Dany Boyle's film with Leonardo Di Caprio which welcomes thousands of thousands of visitors every day, the lagoon of Koh Phi Phi Ley, or the monkey beach. On the main island, going for a trek to get off the beaten track and discover small and almost deserted beaches is also very nice and gives you another image of Koh Phi Phi (see offer in the tours section).
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Koh Phi Phi or from Koh Phi Phi. Click here to see them.

Must-visit places in Koh Phi Phi

My opinion :
On the hills, it offers the most beautiful and the most famous view over Koh Phi Phi island. You have to go up there if you want to tkae THE picture of Koh Phi Phi or a selfy that will make your friends jealous. The sunsets from up there are often amazing!

Maya Bay

My opinion :
Maya Bay beach was made famous by the movie ''The Beach''. Since then, thousands of tourists are going there every day. This is certainly a beautiful place but if you really want to enjoy it you will have to come at dawn or sleep on the bay.
