Phi Phi Island
Phi Phi Island is a group of islands located in the middle of the sea and is part of the national park Hat Noppharat Thara – Mu Ko Phi Phi.
They are 42 kilometers away from the city and consist of six islands namely Phi Phi Don, Phi Phi Lay, Yung, Bamboo, Bida Nok, and Bida Nai. The name “Phi Phi” came from “Pulau Piapi,” which means island with mangroves. Over time, it became known as the kingdom of blooms under the sea.

Each island has clear waters, sandy beaches, and interesting attractions. Phi Phi Don is the largest of the islands and has a total area of about 28 square kilometers.
