PHUKET DAY TOURS and SHOWS
PHI PHI ISLAND
Phi Phi Island (also called Pi Pi Island) lays 42km south east of Phuket.
Phi Phi is the top of the list for Tour attactions in Phuket and should be included on yours.
It is a popular destination for day trips or tours,
as well as a romantic few days away from the bustle.
Remember to take Sun Glasses, Sun Block, Insect Repellant, a change of clothes, towel, camera with spare batteries.
Transport to and from your hotel is provided. Lunch is also seved as part of the package.
Phi Phi was hit hard during the 2004 Tsunami, but has fully recovered.
There are several options to utilise. Speed Boat, which is quicker but a lot less comfortable, Big Boat, or ferry.
The ferry travels twice daily and does not include any extras, just the journey.
I recomend the big boat, its comfortable, roomy, and provides a chance to meet and chat with
fellow travellers from all over the world. The speed boat is noisy and tends to hit the waves making it very uncomfortable.
Phi Phi Island activities
Your tour to Phi Phi includes snorkeling, swimming, sightseeing, and exploring.
Hint: To get the fish come to you, take some bread with you, sprinkle some crumbs in the water,
the fish will quickly surround you in a feeding frenzy.
PHANG NGA BAY
