Koh Phi Phi – Thailand

dscf9513.JPGArguably Thailand’s backpacker’s paradise, Koh Phi Phi is made up of 2 islands, Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Ley. One you may recognize more than the other and that is because it was the set of the blockbuster movie The Beach, starring Leonardo Di Caprio.

Here is somewhere you can call paradise, crystal clear blue sea, tropical fish and stunning rock formations dotted around; this really is one of the most beautiful places in Thailand. Set on the south west of Thailand off the coast of Phuket, Koh Phi Phi has attracted tourists from all around the world. Koh Phi Phi Don is the main island filled with hedonistic travelers that come here for the small and cozy selection of guest houses and hotels to stay in, the select few bars, restaurants, clubs and shops and then the gorgeous beaches.

Koh Phi Phi Ley is a national park and can only be visited during the day on set excursions. The excursions will take you snorkeling and swimming and then to a little place called Monkey Island with lots of monkeys and a little place called Maya Bay aka ‘The Beach’.

Definitely a must see place in Thailand you can take a ferry or a speed boat over to the islands from Krabi or Phuket.
