The Phi Phi Islands became popular from the movie “The Beach” featuring Leonardo DiCaprio. I have to admit the Phi Phi Islands are one of my favorite places in all of Asia!
There are plenty of cute bungalows, guesthouses, and resorts scattered along the coast and in town. Here is where to stay in Koh Phi Phi while traveling through Thailand.
