      Dear Islanders and Tourists in Ko Phi Phi! I'll be coming to your beautiful Island in 2 weeks and would like to know if there is any Curfew on the island itself? (I heard from a local agency that organizes activities, that there isn't any on the island despite the islandwide now 12 am-4am curfew...). Are there still partys on the beach all night? Is it possible to sleep aboard in maya bay or is this restricted by the curfew?
      Thanks in Advance!

    • J.J. Bungalows on Koh Phi Phi Don?

      by pchandr99 Online Now Aug 15, 2011 at 8:48 AM

      Hi all, has anyone stayed on J.J. Bungalows on koh phi phi don? I'm having trouble deciding between this (apparently it's on a steep hill) and Popular Beach bungalows - anyone stayed here? It's on tonsai beach - is it noisy? Is the beach front nice to hang out in and swim in?

      We want to be walking distance to the bars for nye, but a bit away from the noise so we can sleep well at night!

      What do you recommend?! Thank you! At least J.J. has good clean reviews - i don't care about the stench from the nearby sewage plant - it's only when you walk by that plant you smell it?

      5 Days in Koh Phi Phi - hotels and things to do

      Hi all,

      My girlfriend and I are travelling to Koh Phi Phi for few days on your way back to Ireland for xmas.

      Can anyone recommend a nice hotel to stay - around 40-50AUD (1,350THB)per night max? and close to a beach.

      Also is there any trip that is a must do while there? I've been all over Thailand before and just want to lie on beach for few days but if there is something that we should do can you please advise?

    • First time to Phi Phi

      by thailand_ted Online Now Sep 30, 2010 at 1:49 AM

      I'm looking at taking my girlfriend to Phi Phi in April 2011. Like many others posting on the forum various website information has got me frustrated. I have found a hotel near Pak Nam Beach and the prices seem pretty ok. I needed to find somewhere that had beach bungalows and where we could have our own privacy and this place seems to be the best giving the budget I have in place. I have a couple of questions that I would be very grateful if anybody could answer for me:

      Am I best to go and book my holiday as a package, or book it indevidually? (I always feel package holidays are more expensive, but the security of a package always sways me into paying)

      If I was to opt into booking the holiday seperately, what would be the best airport to fly to from Manchester? And are the regular ferries etc that could take me to my accomodation without it costing me a fortune?

      The website for the accomodation I found never stipulated a board basis, I take it that is because it is all self catering, are there many amenities on the Island (i.e food and water) and what are the prices like?

      If there are any questions you think I should be asking please advise me as I am not normally somebody who uses forums. Thank you for your time and patience :)

      Accommodation for Solo Female Traveler

      I will be traveling to Phi Phi islands at the end of April and am searching for a place to stay. Websites have left me flustered and confused. Would love to stay in a bungalow, but my budget is roughly 1000 baht/night. Since I am on my own it would be convenient if it had a restaurant and bar so i won't have to wander around on my own in the dark if it gets too late. I would like to be close to town, but understand I can just catch a taxi there. Close to, if not on, a beach would be great. Any help is apprecaited!

      Just need a bit of clarification...Is Rassada pier right in Phuket town? If so, can we take a mini bus from the airport into town and walk to the pier or is it better to take a taxi and go directly to the pier (trying to stay on a budget)? Is it better to book my ferry tickets in advance or should we just buy them when we get to the pier? We will be arriving mid-December. Thanks!
