Phi Phi consists of a group of six islands. Only 40 km away from Phuket, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh are the two most famous islands of the six. With their pristine waters and vibrant parties, these islands are a wonderful way to spend a few days in Thailand.
Phi Phi is an island group which is famous for backpackers and travellers who wish to enjoy beach life in a relaxed manner. A party lover's haven, Phi Phi may not have the traditional Thai feel to its ambience which other places in Thailand do. The two major villages are Laem Thong and Ko Phi Phi. Although badly hit by the 2004 tsunami, Phi Phi islands have come back full-force in terms of touristic revenue and local lifestyle up-gradations.

The phi- phi islands in Thailand live up to all the hype. The islands are ideal for travellers looking for a vacation spent relaxing on beaches or in the water. While visiting these islands the speedboat excursions are not something to lose out. The excursion lasts an entire day but makes it worth your time. This includes visiting nearby coves and islands and many optional water activities such as parasailing, snorkelling etc. It is imperative to note that the speedboat excursion is not suitable for those who get seasick easily as the waters can get quite wild. Another option to the boat is, therefore, a cruise, which is comparatively slower and more time-consuming.
