“Spent most of the time in the speed boat”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Don't get me wrong, Phi Phi Island is really beautiful (more beautiful when i first visited it in 2007).

This time, my friends and i took the Phi Phi Island package with Aonang Orchid Travel Tour (or something like that, there are only 4 companies operating it to Phi Phi). Boat no.14 (the only boat with 5 engines)

First, the tour guide (Hasun) is really not friendly. Really sarcastic and super lame too.

Secondly, we spent most of the time either on the beach or on the boat. We only get to snorkel ONCE after lunch and then head back to the pier in Krabi. Nothing much to see, only tiger fishes. Quite a disappointing tour package.

Third, the lunch is in a halal restaurant with supposedly nice 7 dishes buffet lunch. With flies around also. The food would get a rating of 3/10. I dont recommend this company if you would like to visit Phi Phi Island as probably other travel agents may provide better services.

“Coconut Island, Phuket, Thailand”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

My husband a I had a five day package to Coconut Island this September. It is a 10 minute oat ride from the mainland, and the boat left the island every half an hour so we hardly had to wait for a boat. Everything about this resort we loved. The location, the staff, the food (was delicious), and both our private pool and the large main pool was always clean and inviting. For a couple with young children, this resort would be ideal as it is away from the bustle of Phuket, so for the same reason it was great for us in our early sixties. Happy hour was a good way to talk with the other guests. Overall, the Village, Coconut Island, lived up to our expectations, and probably exceeded our expectations. Thoroughly recommended.

Do not do this type of trip!, You cannot see out of the speedboats so all you do is sit for a few hours travelling from island to island staring at the inside of a speedboat, then peek over the top through small windows to look at sights such as viking cave.

When you do get out its for short 30 min stints and your back in the boat, terrible we did not see much at all and we were rush from place to place I do not recommend speedbaost, rather catch a ferry to phi phi then hire a private boat to take you around.

“great views”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

great views, not that good beaches though. Long Beach is the best you can find. The views from the viewpoint are great
