Paradise on Earth is merely a speed boat ride away from Phuket. The limestone cliffs and islands that form Phi Phi are among the most sought-after destinations for a truly stunning day trip by speed boat. Bays and beaches that demand to be explored!
What to Expect
Your driver (no guide included) will pick you up from your hotel in the early morning (around 7.00 am) and drive you to the main port on the east coast of Phuket, for a full day of pure relaxation among the crystal clear waters and limestone cliffs of Phi Phi Islands.
For those who prefer a speedier trip than those offered by the larger, slower, boat cruises, this excursion takes guests on an island hoping trip that takes in the larger Phi Phi Don and the smaller Phi Phi Ley islands. Phi Phi Ley was the setting for the Hollywood film “The Beach”, which was shot mainly at the picturesque Maya Bay. At Phi Phi Don discover the amazing limestone cliffs, long sandy beaches and the clear emerald water. One advantage of this tour is that it gets to Phi Phi before the morning crowds arrive on the local long-tailed water boat taxis from Ao Nang. Lunch is included at a local restaurant.
The east and west landmasses of Phi Phi Don are joined by a narrow Isthmus, and it is here that much of the tourist development has taken place. Phi Phi Ley, on the other hand, is more renowned for its animal life and more specifically its resident swift bird-population. The nests of the swift are highly sought-after, with people taking all manners of risks to collect them for use in Bird’s Nest Soup. Also, Phi Phi Ley is home to the Viking Cave, a large limestone cavern, where ancient rock paintings can be found. If Phi Phi’s natural beauty is not enough, there is plenty to do on and off the island.
You can relax on one of the picture-postcard beaches, enjoy the crystal clear waters or snorkel on the shallow reefs before going back to Phuket by speed boat. You will be back at your hotel at around 6.00 pm.
