#10. Ko Phi Phi Don Island
Ko Phi Phi Don Island, with an area of about 28 square kilometres and a length of 8 kilometres, is shaped like an irregular dumbbell with small green hills at both ends and is extremely narrow in the middle of the island, the narrowest point being about 80 metres. The island is inhabited by fishermen and has resorts, restaurants, bars and various places of entertainment.
It’s the largest in the Ko Phi Phi archipelago and the only one with permanent residents in the group of Phi Phi islands. It is part of Thailand but to get to it, one has to take a 90-minute ferry ride from the mainland or the island of Phuket.
For some time, the island has acted as a magnet for tourists. From its natural beauty, this limestone island offers various activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving for those who wish to explore its excellent marine life. Other physical activities include cliff climbing.
When you return to the land, you can take a yoga class on the beach for a more complete relaxation of mind and body.
For the more laid back, relaxing on the beach and sampling the local delicacies as well as shopping in the numerous tourist shops will make your trip worthwhile.
