Hire a private boat for 1,500 TB for half a day and visit a beautiful island with a range of bays to snorkel. Recommended.

Phi phi le is so beautiful. If you have a chance to get there earlier in the morning, before a lot of people arrive, it seems like you are entering in a sacred place. Magical

This area of Thailand became highlight of our entire trip. The nature is astonishingly beautiful in this area. If you love snorkeling and boat travel, it's definitely island you need to visit.

For the preservation of the eco-life and eco-system restoration, Phi Phi Island has now been closed from tourists or locals. Whilst I’m sad I missed the closure by a month, I’m also really happy because well, nature before tourism. We did use a travel boat...More

This is a must on your trip to Koh Phi Phi. the famous Maya bay is closed to visitors as the reefs started to suffer from tourists, but there are plenty of other bays and beautiful beaches to visit. Snorkeling and scuba diving is great,...More

I Went for a day trip with two snorkelling spots but unfortunately all reefs are dead, the water is not clear and Maya bay still closed. I recommend to try alternative place instead of waste full day in this exhausted trip.

As fas as I know it is possible. From Phi Phi Don you can rent a longtail for 1,000 baht (US$ 32) for three hours or for 2,000 baht (US$ 64) for a full day, max four people. Speedboats are 3,500 baht (US$ 110) for half day... More

Shared Speedboat to Ko Phi Phi Le (8 Replies)
My girlfriend and I are hoping to see Maya Bay early in the morning, before it becomes slammed with tourists, and it seems the best way to do that is by private speedboat charter. I’m expecting the cost to be around 12,000 BHT total for the day. We are open to going any time in the next 3 days. Is anyone interested in splitting cost by sharing a boat? If so, PM me. Cheers, Chris Cerami

I would expect the cost to be at least double that and more like triple, where did you get 12,000 from?

Hi all I am looking for information on camping on Ko Phi Phi Le, I am seeing a lot of conflicting or unreliable information, is it possible to camp on Ko Phi Phi Le?? Also if you have been there is there anything you recommend or don't recommend doing? Thanks James

Koh Phi Phi Ley is inhabitable without water resources. Maya bay has a sand strip, but no fresh water resources. The rest of the island is rocky with shear cliffs.

So 6 days in Bangkok with a overnight side trip to Pattaya. That's ok. BTW, it takes about 2 hours to get to Pattaya via taxi or bus from Bangkok. 3 days Phuket. Which beach? Or just stay on Patong beach which has the majority of nightlife, restaurants, hotels. Fly to Phuket from Bangkok. Going from Phuket to Phi phi is ok but alot of moving around. You could do a daytrip to Phi Phi via ferry, jet boat whatever. Krabi a little furthur and you may be able to get a boat to there from...More
