Yes it is wet season but I can promise you it will be hot!! Usually you get periods of heavy downpours then sun again, We went Aug/Sept last year and the week in Aug was great and the week in Sept was very wet!!! But thats the luck of the draw.

Checking the weather forecast is a good suggestion, however rain will not be the thing you should be most concerned with in reguards to Phi Phi. The Seas are quite often very rough at this time of year, so look for calm seas. Me personally I would do a day snorkling trip with Phuket Sail Tours insteady of Phi Phi. It is run by an Ex-pat Aussie and if the seas are bad he wont take you out. And double bonus you wont be surrounded by a hundred other tourist, as he stick to quite unpopulated areas!!

If you feel you really need to do Phi Phi, go with one of the bigger boats that take lots of people as they will be a smoother ride. But definately book Phi Phi once there, it will be lots lots cheaper than booking from home.
