The best place to visit in Thailand over Phi Phi, this part of Krabi is absolutely gorgeous , with its untouched tranquil rainforest and cliff edges, you would not want to leave. One bit of advise is dont drink a cocktail that contains ice because their water supply crosses over with their sewerage lines. Be cautious, or get very sick.... More

Such a beautiful island, many rock climbing facilities, has everything to be a paradise. But it is so dirty. If you stay on the beach it will all look nice and pretty but once you go a bit deeper on the mainland there is garbage and trash everywhere. The smell is to make one sick.

We got there by early evening and difficult to access. Restaurants on the front are nice. Would like to see in the day time.

There are so many day tours you can do from here and even just exploring all the hidden beaches, coves, cave and checking out the view... More

Been there twice for relaxing on the beach, swimming and kayaking. Very nice beach, cause of the low season very quiet as well. Will go to there again

Beautiful island. Wonderful beaches. On the downside was the large amount of jellyfish. Take care and beware but don't hesitate to visit the island.....

There is a couple of nice things to see like the lagoon in a hill and funny caves with a lot of penises. The best things are the killer monkeys that attacked one guy and the food they sell in the boars next to the beach. Wonderful day!
