Phi Phi Island in Phuket, Thailand is popular for its limestone cliffs, clear turquoise water and white sandy beaches. There are two options to get to Phi Phi Island: ferries and speedboats. The main port is Rassada Pier in Phuket Town.

There are also travel agencies offering island hopping packages. So for a hassle-free trip to the island, we did a boat tour with Klook. They use speedboats for the tour which are a lot faster than ferries. The tour package also includes a hotel transfer service.

The first beach we visited is Maya Bay, the location of Leonardo DiCaprio's Hollywood film 'The Beach'.


The place was crowded when we arrived but the limestone cliffs reminded me of El Nido and the white powdery sand of Boracay.



And of course, no trip to Phi Phi Island is complete without snorkeling.







One of the most notable sites that we visited in Phi Phi Island is the Viking Cave which is located at the bottom of a tall limestone cliff. The cave has wall paintings as well as a site for harvesting swiftlet birds' nests which can be used for making traditional Chinese soup.


One of the highlights of our trip is our visit to the Monkey Island. We were warned to be careful though as these cheeky monkeys are known to steal unguarded items.



Whether you like snorkeling, diving, trekking or just relaxing, Phi Phi Island has something for everyone. So make sure to visit the island if you are in Phuket.
