We had lot of expectations after visiting Phi Phi Island. However, turned out to be a damp squib as compared to Phi Phi. Canoe ride was the only highlight.

It was supposed to be the highlight of the trip but the water wasnt attractive to go for a swim so I happily took my picture with the famous rock and was ready to head back to the hotel.

Waste of time and money , unnecessary tour , awful beaches , feels like making like making the whole tour just in order yo take a photo , not recommended at all , another problem that the boat located far away from patong area (about one hour) by car.

I visited here in the first week of April. I have visited and travelled around Thailand many times in the last ten years. North, South, East & West,. This is by far the worst place I have ever seen. The photos look great, but when you get here, there is no wonderful beach like in the photos. Just tacky stalls... More

It was definitely a cool experience, and we're glad we did it, but it is a bit hyped up. It was sad how polluted with garbage the waters were. We tried to get on with "Two Sea Tours", their reviews were amazing, but they were full. We made sure to do a private experience instead. We stayed clear of the... More

You have to book a tour with one of the local operators or hire a long tail boat to get to the island. The view is quite nice, not much else to do. You wont spend more than 30min here. The souvenir shops are ridiculously overpriced compared to the mainland. Take sunscreen and water for the trip.

We booked our excursion at DMK airport. What they didn't tell us is that it takes 2 hours from Patong Beach to get to the port!! Needless to say, after 2 hours on the coach, plus another hour getting your boat sorted and then traveling. It's a big disappointment tbh. Few market stalls there that are obviously well overpriced.
