Guide To Ko Phi Phi Thailand, Beauty and Fun To The Max

What a wonderful island Ko Phi Phi is. Located on the South-West coast of Thailand, cradled within the marine-rich Andaman Sea, the island of Ko Phi Phi is full to the brim with some serious scenic abundance!

Getting to Phi Phi island couldn’t be easier. If you’re coming from Bangkok then you can get a train down to Surat Thani, which will take about eight hours, then get an air conditioned bus from Surat Thani across the country to Krabi. The bus journey will take about three hours and is usually quite comfortable. Once you get to Krabi, you then hop onto a ferry for a two hour journey that will take you to the little island of Ko Phi Phi.
