||The alluring beauty of the two islands of
Koh Phi Phi (Don and Leh) is difficult to describe. However
this has become some kind of a curse, as despite their
national park status, developers have encroached to cash
in on tourism. Nevertheless, newcomers are awe-struck
by the area’s natural splendor, and Koh Phi Phi
remains a foremost tourist destination.
The larger Phi Phi Don consists of two rock masses bridged
by a strip of white sand with beaches on both sides. The
southern beach (Ao Ton Sai) is more developed, with boats
anchoring in the calm bay. The legendary tranquility has
gone, but one blessing is that decent restaurants and
bungalows are easy to find.
