Phi Phi Packages

Phi Phi Island is definitely one of my favourite destination even though my job for the past 10 years gave me opportunity to visit the place so many times that I can't even count, still every times I was there I always feel surprise of how beautiful this place is with limestone islands that created powerful cliffs in the middle of the ocean into the crystal clear water full of tropical marine life. Many times look like I was the most happiest person on the trip I did not realize until now that because of my experiences I know exactly where all the beautiful spots are and what to look at.

As what we always doing here at Easy Day is we are trying to organize different tour program by using our experiences to create different, unique and avoid crowds as much as possible and it had been some times that we've been trying to create beautiful tour program  for Phi Phi island one of the most popular destination

2 Days / 1 Night - Phi Phi islands Tour

We are now in April the hottest month of the year here in Thailand, however in Phuket it had been no rain for 3 months and we can now see some dark cloud and can feel that we will get some rain soon.

Heading to Phi Phi island today for inspection trip and since is a school holiday I also take my daughter with me.
Day 1 - On the way to Phi Phi

The day started by getting pick up by air-condition minivan at around 8.00 then the driver take us to Rassada pier in Phuket town where our ferry Royal Jet Cruise 9 depart from.

We normally travel with Premium Class but today I like to try the First Class to see the different. It was not many people at all in the first class today. They also have drinks & snack corner and the room look nice and clean. The boat left Rassada pier at 8.30 and 10-15 minutes later few people from standard class started to upgrade their seats to first class so there was then around 15 people in there.

It took around 1.30 hour before we arrive at Phi Phi island and the first stop is at Ton Sai bay but since we were on our overnight tour package our tour guide came to get us just before we arrive to get ready to jump on speed boat which take us around for snorkeling and sightseeing. Speed boat take us to Bamboo island, we get to walk around, swimming and snorkeling from the beach.

We moving to Laem Thong beach at 12.00 for lunch at the restaurant with seafood BBQ and buffet then those that stay overnight at Leam Thong beach got to go to the hotel for check in and others get back on speed boat to get transfer back to the ferry which will take them cruise around Phi Phi Le for sightseeing before head back to Phuket.

We checked in at Phi Phi Natural Resort, staffs at the hotel are very nice and helpful then when one of them take us to the room, I was surprised they've upgraded our room from standard room to superior cottage which was very close to the beach and I could see how clear the water is from my balcony, we are so lucky!

I've never been at Laem Thong beach before so after a bit rest we went out explore the place and also visit “Leisure Dive” our dive center partner which located right on the beach, too bad I didn't plan to dive this time but for sure next time I wouldn't miss it.

It was really nice to walk on this quiet and beautiful white sand beach. Felt like it was not long before we realize it was getting dark so we walk back to the hotel, stop quick at swimming pool and walked along the beach back to our room
It had been a long day so we were thinking that we just walk to the restaurant get some quick dinner then back to bed since we have to wake up early for our sightseeing and snorkelling with long tail boat to Phi Phi Le. 

Just before we finish our dinner there were 3 young locals came to the beach and perform an amazing fire dance, it was so cool that we had to finish our dinner quickly and went to sit on the beach to get better view of the show.

After fire dance show we were sitting a bit longer on the beach since it was nice to listen to the waves, the sky was clear though not many stars since it was close to full moon. I remembered one of the first time of my Phi Phi overnight trip almost 10 years ago it was on dark moon and the sky cover with seem like a billions of stars, it was absolutely stunning.

We walked back to the hotel and fell asleep as soon as our head touched the bed.

Day 2 - Explore Phi Phi Le

We wake up at 6.00, after freshen up we went walking along the beach to restaurant for breakfast and to get a nice warm and beautiful sunrise at the same time.

We booked the long tail boat at 7.30 to take us to Phi Phi Le for snorkeling and sightseeing. From Leam Thong beach took us 40 minutes to get there and I realize that I should have left much earlier so I could be there before most of the boat arrive to see real beauty without too many boats. 

However we arrived at quite good time anyway few boats already arrived but not too crowded. We cruising slowly around Phi Phi Le, stop at Viking Cave then move to my favourite spot “Pileh Cove”. We spend almost an hour here for swimming and snorkelling then continue cruising to Loh Samah bay, Maya beach then last stop on my requested was at Palong wall where you can find some reef sharks at shallow water and many times turtles, unfortunately we didn't see any of them today but we didn't have much time to look for them anyway since we had to head back to the hotel for check out and get ready to go back to Phuket.

Hotel staff arranged so we got back to the ferry, on the way back we were in the Premium class which is in exclusive lounge with comfortable sofa and there was also exclusive sun deck which only for premium class.

We arrived back at Rassada pier at around 16.30

It was a really nice trip but definitely too short for me, next time will stay much longer so I can explore all best spots and organize more quality tours for you ;)
