We did this in the morning as it gets hot during the day and its more challenging to do it during the day. After getting to the top view point one you can keep on going up to view point 2 where there is nice places to take photos and enjoy a cold drink or beer at the bar up there. I recommend going in the morning or even for sunrise on sunset and try to avoid going during the day. There is stores to buy water before the stairs begin not much while on the stairs. Enjoy !

The viewpoint is great if you want to have an elevated view of the island. I recommend going in the morning because then the sun is behind you and you can get better pictures. It did get quite crowded with everyone taking pictures, but everyone was respectful and let each person have their chance.

Note! There are two ways to get to the viewpoints. The recommended route is via the stairs in the town area. It is steep, but way more direct and quicker than the other way around. The other way around is a road that cars/bikes use to get over the mountain. It is much further (3km vs 800m) and doesn't offer any views until you're at the top.

Getting a little lost in the alleys of a mountain (yes that exists) through tiny dwelling full of backpackers might not be that fun, but it WAS on the way to Phi Phi viewpoints (and yes there are two). And these stoned fellows helped me find the way to these gorgeous viewpoints. Entry is THB 30 per person and you may want to stay forever. Gorgeous views of the 2 islands and the adjoining strip, the higher viewpoint is better here. The place will want you to have a picnic there :) Buy some local beer.

I'm 64yr and it was a bit of a hike to get up there but it is concrete all the way. Well worth the effort though. Great views from both viewpoints but of course number 2 is the crowing glory. Entry fee is 30 baht.
I was surprised as to the amount of time and labour that must have gone in to creating all the well maintained gardens and surrounding sculptures. Cold drinks and souvenirs available at Viewpoint 2. The higher cafe shop was closed, no doubt due to the pandemic. But don't despair as the views will have you clicking away.
Certainly worth the effort.

Went twice during my stay in phi phi. First time was at sunset, very beautiful but also very crowded( it became a photo shoot with people queuing to get a picture with the view).

However I returned early the next morning and had it basically to myself. Worth the walk , view is amazing :) .

I got really amazed with the view! However, It is a bit challenging to get to the first viewpoint, not mentioning the second and final one. Make sure you have water and try to go there not in hottest times of the day.

You have to walk up steep steps to reach to the first view point. The viewpoint 1 is lovely! It costs only 30b to enter (paid after taking all the steps). If you get there, get more water (you can buy it there) and head to the viewpoint 2 (no more viewpoints after that). The path to 2nd viewpoint is not as steep as the first one, but believe me you will get tired. After all it is all worth it. At the very top you will see some breathtaking views, can have a coffee in the cafe, and take beautiful pictures.
Watch out - as a European I was surprised by the lack of fencing or any protection. In Asia it’s normal - just the wildlife :)

To sum up - really worth going, however, only 30% of my travel grop decided to go to the second one.
ENJOY :)

It was a hard trek up but definitely worth it. We came from phi phi village and followed the signs up. It was a walk in the woods on a small “trail” with only a few signs. Don’t worry and just enjoy the walk in nature. Be mindful as we saw giant lizards, scorpions and even had a monkey come by and pass the trail!

It is a small fee to get in and to use the toilet (bring your own tissue; when I went they didn’t have any). There are drinks up there for purchase and the view is incredible!

We went all the way through the woods, don't to that, it is way to hot, and longer in distance. There is stairs right in the middle of the town, it is much quicker. You will get 2 views, one is view point and next is little higher where you can see both side of the island. Its is worth claiming those stairs. There is a shop at the top so you can get cool and refreshing drinks. Go for a smoothie right at the top. Take as much photos as you can! I went there day time, it was really hot. Entrance is 30 bhat. If you can go in the morning or for a sunset, it must be even more beautiful. Note for sunset a lot of people go, so go little earlier to avoid the crowd and stay till sunset.

The trek upto the viewpoint was a bit hard and tiring and highly recommend to take water or drinks with you. There is viewpoint 2 and viewpoint 3 and 3rd one requires more climbing but it's better to go upto the 3rd viewpoint than stopping at 2. The best time to visit is before 10 in the morning. We went there at about 3pm and the lighting was not good for photos. Also the colour difference is not clearly visible with sun light so bright. Also they charge 30 THB for entrance. There is a snack bar at the top and they have juices and other snacks.

Koh Phi Phi Viewpoint is a must for anyone visiting this tiny island. There were some steep step to trek to the top. Not going to lie, my friends and I were running out of breath & had to stop for a mini break before resuming on our hike. I recommend bringing water. There was an entry fee of 30 baht per person. When you get to the top, there's a small convenient shop with seating to buy water or snacks. the view was breathtaking. The view overlooks the entire island. One of my favorite spots in Thailand!
