About Koh Phi Phi
Made up of six smaller islands, Koh Phi Phi is one of Thailand’s most beautiful destinations. Beaches range from relaxing and peaceful to all-night parties – simply choose depending on your mood.
Loh Dalum is beautiful and laid back, but a little popular. Long Beach is quieter, with great views of Phi Phi Leh’s limestone cliffs. Loh Bagao and Laem Thong are both even better for a relaxing experience.
