a must for shopping and getting to the view point of the Phi Phi Don Island. The shop owners are friendly and have good products at reasonable prices

“Postcard views!”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

This island marks the entry to the Krabi province. Phuket comes to memory everytime you see the picture of a long-tail Thai boat on the turquoise blue sea and one of the places to witness such views at its very best is the Ko Phi Phi Don or the Phi-Phi island, particularly if you are in on a clear sunny day. The entry is near the Ton sai bay which is one of the two beautiful curving bays, Loh Dalam being the other one on the opposite side. Loh Dalam is lot quiter having a better beach than Ao Ton sai but you need to walk a distance to reach there. The island is overall not particularly quiet though due to the numerous shops,bars and restaurants in offer. But due to the picture postcard views that it offers, I give Phi Phi a 4 star, but considering other aspects, they are average and not more than 3 star..

“Backpacker, Budget, Boisterous”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Crowded, noisy, grotty, not inexpensive. Great developing world feel. Good for Thai mango smoothie, break from ferry before Longtail to 3+ - 5+ star accommodation elsewhere on Phi Phi Don.

“climbers paradise, worth the trek”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

We didn't have much time in the area as we took the boat over from Krabi for a half day just to have a look. We walked around the back part of Ton Sai and most shops and establishments were shut down for the off season. I imagine it gets pretty packed in the high season. The cliffs are beautiful and the climbing looks great (we will go back some day).
We walked over to Ton Sai on a nice coast trail from the north end of West Railay which was much preferred to the longer, hotter trail inland we took on the return that dumps you on East Railay.
