Find your inner peace on Ko Phi Phi Don, the largest island in the eponymous archipelago.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ko Phi Phi Le and Ko Bida Nok. You'll get in some beach time at Laem Tong Bay and Maya Bay. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, stroll through Loh Dalum Beach, make a splash at Aquaride, and enjoy the sand and surf at Ao Ton Sai.

Find out how to plan Ko Phi Phi Don trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
