Phi Phi Don Island is well-maintained and to keep the lush green flora and crystal blue waters clear, the management charges 20 THB/ person from every tourist before letting them enter the island.
On the morning of our 6th day, we had book a ferry to Koh Phi Phi Don and luckily that ferry turned out to be a mini Cruise. We left at 9:00 AM and reached Phi Phi Islands by 11: 00 AM. The two-hour journey in the ferry was splendid. There was nothing much to enjoy inside the seating chamber but the view from the deck was amazing. These pictures will speak louder than what we will describe in writing. A day in Phi Phi is more than enough to explore the island. We won’t say it is a small island, but it can be explored on foot and at the same time one can have a relaxed stay in the hotels too. The place offers Live Jazz Music in the evenings with delicious seafood. From street food vendors to good restaurants, this island has everything. There is a big market with shops selling souvenirs, antics, paintings, liquor, glass showpieces, clothes, snorkeling gears, caps, mobile covers, dry bags, and groceries.
On the same day, we trekked towards Long Beach and clicked some good photographs there. The trek is not at all difficult as a nicely paved path helps you move forward smoothly. The evening was reserved for a lavish back and neck massage, sumptuous dinner along with live music and shopping plans.
For the next day, we had booked a ferry to Ao Nang and it was scheduled to depart at 15:30 PM. Since we had the morning to ourselves, we decided to trek to the Phi Phi view point early in the morning (at around 07:30 AM). The trek to Phi Phi View Point is not a child’s play. A long pathway, more than 300 steps and a walk for 1km on an inclined path is what it takes to reach the top. But the effort is worth a shot, for the view from the top is mesmerizing.
