Phi Phi Fun Facts and Cool Things To Know

Geography

LongtailKoh Phi Phi is made up of 6 islands. They lie 50km south-east of Phuket and are part of Had Nopparattara - Koh Phi Phi National Park. There are limestone cliffs, caves and long white sandy beaches.

The inhabited main island of Phi Phi Don contains the center of activity for accommodation, restaurants, nightlife, and beach activities. Most of the development of Phi Phi Don, where the original inhabitants settled, is situated in or around Tonsai Village, which is on the low, sandy isthmus that joins the two hilly spurs that comprise the rest of the island.

There are also other, quieter resorts at Viking Beach, Long Beach, Laem Thong, and other less accessible areas of the island.

Phi Phi Ley is the other main attraction, with its beautiful rock outcroppings, stunning coral reefs and picture perfect beaches. Not only is this island famous for Maya Bay, where they filmed the movie, 'The Beach', but is home to Phaya Naak, or Viking Cave which has prehistoric cave paintings and is where they collect the edible birds-nest for birds nest soup.

Fun Facts

Eco-tourism

Visit Ko Phi Phi Without The Carbon Footprint Koh Phi Phi's major attraction is its environmental diversity. This lush green island is bordered by soft sandy beaches, overlooked by limestone mountains and surrounded by seas of transparent, sparkling aquamarine waters. The islands' biggest selling point, it is imperative that this heavenly environment is maintained for future generations as well as for the exotic species that live within its natural habitat.

This is why Phi Phi island, and Thailand in general, are keen to promote eco-tourism, preventing the destruction of natural habitats through encouraging sustainable activities. In some areas of Thailand, tourism has been earmarked to grow at a rate of at least five percent in 2012, with a focus on eco-tourism. Thailand's Department of Tourism is keen to encourage small, boutique style resorts and responsible activities such as cycling.

Fortunately for the environmentally conscious tourist, Phi Phi island lends itself extremely well to the green movement. This is largely because nothing compares to the natural splendour available on the island. Many of the activities available in the area are naturally tailored to the eco-tourist.
