    Stop At: Krabi Ezy Trails, Sri Phang-nga Rd., Krabi Town 81000 Thailand

    Visiting the Phi Phi Islands is a bucket list activity if you travel to Southern Thailand. Krabi Ezy Trails promise you 3 things: firstly, avoid the crowds with an early departure, secondly, visit Phi Phi Islands and 4 Islands in one day, thirdly, treat wild animals ethically. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed.

    It's in the early morning when you get picked up from your hotel and meet the boat crew at Nopparat Thara Pier. The lights of the mainland of Krabi gradually disappear from sight, and spectacular islands reveal its wonders on the speed boat ride to Phi Phi Islands. You first stop at Maya Bay, the beach itself is closed for rehabilitation, so you can just pull in for a quick look from the boat.

    The next stop is a perfect little cove and beach at Pileh Bay surrounded by Koh Phi Phi’s characteristic limestone cliffs. Sometimes you are the only group there and able to spend nearly an hour swimming, frolicking in turquoise waters and taking a lot of photos.

    Continue to Viking Cave where you can see the swiftlet birds live. Their nests are harvested to make birds’ nest soup, which is popular in Chinese medicine. Note that you don’t actually get out of the boat here. Instead, your boat will stop in front of it and your guide will explain to you the birds’ nest harvesting practices.

    Head further to Monkey Beach which is home to many wild monkeys which are still behaving in line with their wild instincts. It's time for more snorkelling at Loh Samah Bay which is a great place to see giant clams. They camouflage very well with the coral reef, but if you look closely you will find them everywhere!

    The rest of the day, you will do island hopping on the way back towards Krabi. Enjoy a delicious lunch on the beach on Bamboo Island and stop for a walk in the sand at the divided sea named 'Thale Waek' and at Koh Poda in the 4 Islands group.

    Really glad that paid a little more and had to get up a little earlier for this as definitely worth it. I did feel we avoided the crowds and had better experience for it. Mat was great fun and produced fantastic photos - thank you.

    Great tour for the money. Snorkeling was just ok but the guides were great and the amount of stuff we saw was much more than we would have seen by renting a private tour on the long tail boats since our speedboat was FAST! Thanks to Dean and crew for taking good care of us and

    We booked our tickets last minute in Au Nong and we are SO happy we chose this tour over the rest!! It was one of the best days of our trip to Thailand. We arrived by speed boat on Don Phi Phi early enough in the morning to beat the crowds and it was gorgeous! We snorkeled,

    We booked the trip the evening before the departure day and got the response immediately through WhatsApp. Everything was super well-organized and neat: from hotel pick-up to drop off. There were about 25 people on the speed boat, the boat itself very clean. The stuff was

    This was an absolutely brilliant trip. We've done a lot of these over the years and was without doubt the best one we've done. The price is somewhat  higher than the tourist hoard trips out of Ao Nang but was worth every baht! It's a very early start but again well worth the
