What it is
There’s a long vacation list under the categories, “island”, “beach”, and “pristine waters”. But if you’re looking for a few extra things such as exceptional restaurants, tropical bars, shopping destination, you’d best schedule your next long retreat in Thailand’s Phi Phi island tours.
40 miles south-east of the coast of Phuket, these 6 islands are the home of rich coral and aquatic life.
Check-in at your choice of the islands’ excellent hotels to start enjoying your getaway.
What to Do
With so many amenities on offer, it’s hard to know where to begin. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone.
The best attribute of the islands is, of course, their raw natural beauty. And truly raw in every sense, as only one out of the six islands, Koh Phi Phi Don, is inhabited. Imagine long stretches of white sand, crisp blue water, and the untamed vista of tropical jungles. No doubt, this inspired its developers to build what is now the complete entertainment experience.
Have an adventure: The resort’s team of professionals are there to guide you on a scuba trip to discover spectacular flora and fauna; explore the formidable limestone caves or scale limestone mountains.
Try Thai Cuisine: With indoor or outdoor setups, serving Thai or Western food (or a little of both), its list of restaurants will keep any belly happy. They even host a cooking class on Thai cuisine.
Shop till you Drop: Not just your average souvenir stop: the resorts have everything from bazaars, boutiques, a shopping alley and even a fresh produce market!
Visitors can end the day by relaxing in their comfy hotel or party the night away in one of the many themed clubs.
When to Visit
Don’t plan your escapade in the monsoon season! Beware the rainy bouts from May until December. Warm, toasty weather awaits from January to April.
