The beautiful island paradise of Koh Phi Phi deserves more than a brief visit to fully enjoy everything it has to offer. From its stunning scenery and fantastic beaches to a fun nightlife, there is more than enough to justify an overnight stay at one of southern Thailand's most popular destinations. Take the hassle out of the whole trip and save time and money by organizing it all in advance, ensuring top-rate accommodation, easy boat transfers and maximum enjoyment.
Explore one of the largest tropical rainforests in the world with a two-day stay in Khao Sok. Pass by the striking scene of the devastating 2004 tsunami at the memorial museum before entering the beautiful Khao Sok National Park. Explore the truly spectacular Cheow Larn Lake. Settle into a raft house and take a lazy swim before dinner before embarking on a night safari. On Day 2, start with some early-morning canoeing and explore the area on a bamboo raft, visiting a beautiful cave where the stalagmites resemble corals. After lunch, take a long-tail boat to the pier and return to Phuket by 19:30.
