Ko Phi Phi Don Travel Guide: 490 reviews and 1,399 photos
In July 2002 I spent ten fabulous days and nights in this paradise together with my boyfriend - and we could have stayed forever...!
The Phi Phi Islands (Mu Ko Phi Phi) consist of six islands (‘ko’), which are located about 48 km southeast from Phuket and 42 km south from Krabi Town. Ko Phi Phi Don is the main island and the only inhabited one. The smaller islands Ko Phi Phi Leh, Ko Phai (Bamboo Island), Ko Yung (Mosquito Island), Ko Bida Nok & Ko Bida Nai offer great sites for diving and snorkeling.
There are ca. 1500 local inhabitants (muslims) in Phi Phi Don Island. Besides tourism, the local people make a living from coconut and cashew nut farming and fishing. Fishing is the main activity of the sea gipsies, whose village (Chao Ley) is located at Cape Laem Tong at the north end of the island. In addition to the locals there are ca. 500 people (Thai, Chinese, Westerners) employed through the tourism.
