“Second visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This was the second time I have been on a trip to Phi Phi (last visit was 7 years ago). Speedboat trip out there takes about 1 hour and it was a a very bumpy trip as it was quite windy on the day I went. We got off the boat at 3 islands and at one of those stops, we had a delicious buffet lunch. The only downside is that out of a 7 hour day, I think we spent about 3.5 - 4 hours on the speedboat which was not the best. But it is a beautiful part of the world and worth a look.

“Puking all the way to Phi2”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

TRUST ME, eat the seasick pills before you aboard the boat, or you'll have the horrible experience like mine, puking all the way to Phi2. Thank god the island was beautiful and had a lunch on the beach. =)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The whole tour was great, friendly helpful staff, incredible scenery ( now provides the background on my laptop). Simply perfect day, so many things could have spoiled it, nothing did.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Phi Phi is amazing! It will steal your heart! Spend your days either doing great day trips around the island; snorkling, cliff jumping and watching the sunset at sea or just stay on "nice beach" tan and swim in the sparkling blue ocean! At night hit up Dojo, slinkys and Banana Bar - you cant go wrong!!

“Down the gutters...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I had the privileage to have visited Phi Phi before the tsunami and had a wonderful holiday back then...beautiful island, like a dream.
So what a TERRIBLE dissappointment it was to go back now and find it to look like a squatter camp.. dirty, no beauty left - what dump!
I also agree with the other reviews.. there is no management of the surrounding areas. Tour operators are popping up everywhere and see how many people they can fit onto a boat and dump on islands - it's destroying the beauty of the once before paradise..
Patong, Phi Phi ...all these places are becoming more expensive and it really isn't a bargain anymore ..

I won't return.
