Nowadays tourists from all over the world visit this protected bay that is surrounded by three cliffs, without a doubt it is a place that you must see and enjoy for yourself.
You can find many excursions around the Phi Phi islands that depart from Krabi or Phuket, I do not recommend spending the night in Phi Phi, it is usually quite expensive, the rooms are mediocre and there is a lot of nightlife due to the amount of tourists that go to spend “a crazy night” so the atmosphere is not the best unless you want to enjoy music and fire juggling accompanying the evening with a bucket (bucket with alcohol and mix of different soft drinks).
3. White Sand Beach on Koh Chang
This beautiful beach is located in Ko Chang , it has a long stretch of white sand and if in Ko Phi Phi you said it was a more “party” destination in White Sand Beach you will find a more familiar tourism, it is the most developed and popular area from Ko Chang and much quieter than some of the areas that we will talk about a few lines below, in terms of accommodation you can find from 4 star resorts to quite picturesque bungalows, Ko Chang is located in the southeastern part of Thailand.
