THAILAND, Phi Phi Islands – Island hopping always seem like a must-do activity on many traveller’s list when vacationing to Phuket and the Phi Phi Islands is a mainstay attraction. Boosted in popularity with Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2000 film “The Beach”, Phi Phi Islands is one paradise that draws no shortage of crowds.
As the main scene setting for the film, Maya Bay is perhaps too crowded for its own good, some even know Maya Bay and not the Phi Phi Islands in which it resides. Its beautiful beach and popularity, however, assures that there are boatloads of well, boats that will secure you safe passage to the bay.
Alternatively, venture to the top of the Phi Phi Island viewpoint and you’ll be sure to get a picture-perfect composition. Dense tropical rainforest foregrounds your view as you gaze out to azure clear waters and beach houses. The clear blue sky and limestone cliffs frame up the background and it’s no wonder the Phi Phi Islands has a loyal following.
