Phi Phi Don has beautiful beches, long beach one that can only be achieved by Long Tail boat for 5-10 minutes. The beach is also very attractive, with turquoise water and clear colour located in the extreme to suppose we are in the dock and facing the island.

From the second place boat off 2x a day at 08.30 and 14:00 hours. We stayed at in Aonang Grand Inn Aonang. Boat tickets purchased at the merangkat hostel travel agents with one way 390baht price. In the morning we were picked up by truck to the dock is open for about 10 minutes from the hostel. Boat rode quietly, because the waves were calm. The best time to visit Phi Phi from November to April. Outside this time the waves are often large and sometimes if the harm, boat left undone. Had stopped a bit amid the sea to transport passengers from Railey beach which comes with a Long Tail boat. During the 1.5 hour journey as compelling as the sights tebing2 towering limestone and the sea is very clean.
Arriving on the island of Phi Phi Don we find in the hostel located informational didermaga center. We stayed at the guesthouse with a price of U.S. individuals around Rp. 90.000 (3 people sharing a room). In fact many guesthouse guesthouse-strewn cheaper there, there Banthai guesthouse 400 bath / rooms rates. If you do not find yourself tired guest house suggested, lay behind the dock. On the island of Phi Phi there are no motorized vehicles, only carts barang2 to carry passengers. The air is clean because there is no pollution.
The next day we took the tour to Phi Phi Ley (uninhabited island) with a Long Tail boat including a 4-hour snorkel 250bath/orang rates. We visited Maya beach where filming ‘the beach’ is. But we did not land there because you have to pay again (forget how). But from a distance of 100 feet we could see the colors sparkling white sands, clear waters, beaches surrounded by limestone cliffs, provides a perfect view. After snorkeling around the virtual beach, we continue to travel Pileh cove, Loh Samah and Viking cave. Phi Phi Island is a very unique shape, consisting of limestone cliffs that stand out amid the sea for granted. Among these cliffs there are niches where Maya beach, Loh Samah and Pileh Cove is. Very calm in these niches, the water clear and not choppy.
