This question comes up on a weekly basis,there's plenty of discussion using the search function.

It's also Phang Nga Bay for me as it's a much bigger area with different islands to explore and the scenery is spectacular.

Check out the Youtube videos.

I love Phi Phi but for a day trip Phang Nga Bay is the better option, the scenery is amazing - Phi Phi is gorgeous as well but I think it needs more than a day trip to appreciate it.

Hi

I agree, both are very, very different trips!

Phi Phi involves a mad dash in a speedboat over open water which even in December can be rough, so you have to go into it knowing that. It does have more snokelling. But however hard even the best trip organisers try, places likes Maya Beach will be busy!

The Phang Nga Bay tends to be more relaxed, quieter, and a much more chill out experiance. Especially if you go with people like Phuket Sail Tours, who ensure you don't see any crowds!

For me Phang Nga Bay wins as well!

I agree with those who prefer Phang Nga Bay.

we did Phi Phi and one day is not enough and speed boat really make you tired and you don't have enough time to do anything.

For us Phang Nga Bay is a more memorable trip. Not so rushed and not so many tourists. We suggest Phuket Sail Tours as well.
