|Dreamy Beaches at Koh Phi Phi|
But also for snorkeling on the coral reefs the numerous islands invites. The island group consists of Phi Phi Don, Phi Phi Ley, Koh Phai (Bamboo Island) and Koh Yung (Mosquito Island). Towering out of the water craggy limestone rocks by weathering and the forces of nature shaped bizarrely, are typical of the islands. The rocks are continued under the water and thus results in a fantastic living space with caves and other hiding places for a variety of aquatic species that make each dive unique. What the islands a little disturbing, are the amounts of day-trippers, who come every day from Krabi, Koh Lanta or Phuket to visit the islands.
The Phi Phi Islands as popular Daytrip targetFrom 9 o`clock in the morning the first boats come and bring crowds of people. In particular, the tourists who stay at the beach of Loh Dalam or Tonsai Bay, feel more often disturbed by the day visitors. At the afternoon it will be quiet when all the tour boats leave the docks against 14 o`clock and bring the visitors back. Of the devastating tsunami in 2004 is nothing more to see, everything has been rebuilt and trimmed for the tourism and some very nice Accomodations like Hotels, Resorts and Bungalows were built. The best way to achieve Koh Phi Phi is to fly from Bangkok to Phuket, and then by Ferry.
It is also possible to take a bus from Bangkok to Krabi or Phuket.
