The Phi Phi Islands is situated in Krabi Province. There are two Islands in Phi Phi, which are divided into two, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley.Phi Phi ley is not much civilized and not much of tourist and is worth a visit.The crystal-clear water, a refreshing lack of roads, plus a laid-back lifestyle, and it's intresting to see why Phi Phi is one of southern Thailand's most popular destinations.
Phi Phi Don is a crowded island. The Island looks breath taking as you just watch the sea.Its classic pure white sand framed by huge ancient cliffs and lapped by water that’s shade of turquoise.Phi Phi Island offers very nice scuba diving and a lot of easily accessible destinations, with most less than an hour away. The number of established diving companies is quite impressive considering the size of the island.
The underwater life around Phi Phi Islands is very diverse and fascinating. Leopard sharks are common and sometimes dolphins even visit the coasts. In some places, it is also possible just by using snorkeling equipment, to spot blacktipped reef sharks, especially if you swim along the beach early in the morning.
