The enticement of Phi Phi has decorated travel brochures across the globe with its azure-blue oceans and fabulous beaches. Well organized transfers from Phuket to this bounty island seem to be just the start you need to get into the island mood.
Lauded as one of the finest examples for a beach-drenched holiday, Thailand’s Phi Phi Islands sparks the flame of a bounty island like no other. Wedged between Phuket and Krabi, this tiny group of islands has been calling sun admirers for years due to its fabulous beaches, its underwater wonders and laid-back atmosphere from sunrise until deep after sunset. With accommodation solemnly on the larger Phi Phi Don, the smaller Phi Phi Leh Island is frequently visited for its stunning landscape – a collection of stunning bays and lagoons where Hollywood’s blockbuster The Beach was filmed yet is just a stone’s throw away from the bustling centre of Phi Phi Don. Regular ferry services between ‘mainland’ Phuket and Phi Phi Islands often require advanced bookings so why go through the hassle of arranging it on spot and perhaps miss the boat when you can be guided from arrival to Phi Phi Islands worry-free.You are welcomed by a driver at your booked accommodation on Phuket after check-out for a transfer to Phuket’s main ferry terminal. In line with the ferry schedule from Phuket to Phi Phi, it is essential to depart in the morning to reach Phuket’s ferry terminal in time. The drive to the Rassada Boat Pier (subject to change, depending on weather conditions and tides) takes approximately between 20 and 45 minutes by air-conditioned transfer (selected beaches only and Phuket Town) where you will be guided to the local ferry. The ferry ride from Phuket to Phi Phi’s Tonsai Boat or Laemthong pier takes approximately 2 -3 hours respectively and on board a jet cruiser, the team on board will take care of questions and informs about the sights en route. Guests are able to stay only inside at one of the comfortable chairs. A small snack / drink / coffee corner and toilets are on board as well as English speaking assistance. Once the ferry slows down, it is time to make your way to the main exit. As there is no luggage service, guests may require taking care of their own luggage off the ferry and onto the boat pier, where – when accommodation is booked – the team of your Phi Phi resort takes over this. Bear in mind that an entrance fee onto arrival will be levied (currently set at Baht 20 per person) to keep the island clean.
