Getting to Koh Phi Phi is an adventure in itself, with a ferry journey across the beautiful calm waters of Phang Nga Bay. Ferries depart from Krabi and Phuket
Flights To Koh Phi Phi
There is no airport on Koh Phi Phi. The nearest airports are Krabi Airport and Phuket Airport. You will then need to get transport from the airport to the pier and a ferry from the pier to Koh Phi Phi. You can book Krabi Airport to Koh Phi Phi ferry tickets online – it combines a minivan from Krabi Airport to the ferry pier, and then the ferry crossing to Koh Phi Phi island.
Ferries To Koh Phi Phi
Ferries go to Koh Phi Phi from both Krabi and Phuket every day. See Krabi Airport to Koh Phi Phi ferry times, Krabi Town to Koh Phi Phi ferry times and Phuket to Koh Phi Phi ferry times and Ao Nang to Koh Phi Phi ferries for exact timings. In high season there are more boats plying both routes. Tickets can be bought online and from all travel agents and guest houses or at the pier itself. In Krabi, the ferry pier is about 3km outside of Krabi Town and resembles a small airport.
From Phuket the ferries leave from Rassada Pier. Once in Phi Phi, there is a 20 baht per person fee required at the pier for “keeping Koh Phi Phi clean”… If only. There are added ferry services all through high season. You can also travel by speedboat from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi for a vastly increased price.
Bus and Ferry From Bangkok To Koh Phi Phi
You can buy a combined bus and ferry ticket with the bus departing from Bangkok’s Southern Terminal to Phuket’s Rassada Pier. You then board the ferry at Rassada Pier and make the crossing to Koh Phi Phi. Check departure times, pricing and book online with 12go.
Getting Around On Koh Phi Phi
There are almost no motorized vehicles on Phi Phi so you either walk or get a longtail boat to get to other beaches from the initial arrival point of Tonsai Beach.
Walking is free but can be arduous in the heat, especially if you have a lot of luggage and particularly with kids.
Getting long boat taxis can be expensive unless it is the short run from Tonsai to Long Beach which is 100 baht during the day and 150 baht at night. Some of the longtail boat men can seem intimidating and indeed there is a fairly mafia feel to the whole business. Getting to more remote beaches such as Laem Thong can set you back as much as 1000 baht one way. If you have a lot of luggage there are porters with pushcarts who can carry your stuff for a fee.
Be aware of which beach you are staying on when you book your Koh Phi Phi hotel so that you know what the logistics are of getting there once the ferry arrives at Tonsai Bay on Koh Phi Phi. If you are staying on one of the more remote beaches, getting your hotel to send a longtail boat to meet you at the pier will save you a lot of hassle.
