Koh Phi Phi Travel Tips & Recommendations

Before we start sharing our usual travel tips and recommendations, let's take a look at the Phi Phi island group first. The Phi Phi Island that we usually talk about is actually the biggest island of the group which is composed of 6 islands. When you go to Phi Phi island, you stay at Koh Phi Phi Don because that's the only island with permanent inhabitants. Koh Phi Phi Ley is a pretty popular island in the group as well. The rest of the islands are very small. Phi Phi islands Map (Source: Wikipedia) ------> Travel Tips There are no cars, no tuk-tuks, no scooters on the island. Everybody...

Phuket to Koh Phi Phi By Boat

In this post, we are going to share with you how we went to Koh Phi Phi island from Phuket and return from the island to go to Phuket International Airport.

Deep Water Solo

See what we experienced on the Fantastic 3 in 1 tour organized by IBEX Climbing and Tours??? Then you know we signed up for Deep Water Solo with them for sure! I think I need to tell you guys something before going more in depth about our experience. Han and I love rock climbing. We both have a good amount of rock climbing experience by working out at a rock climbing gym in Shanghai regularly. But that was a year ago though... But rock climbing at the gym is very different from rock climbing on a real rock which is actually easier since you can just grab whatever you feel comfortable...

Fantastic 3 In 1 Tour

After four days experiencing nothing active in Phuket, the moment we set our feet on Koh Phi Phi island, we were fully ready for action! Our boat arrived at Tonsai Pier at 10 am on time. We followed the hotel location map downloaded on my phone and headed directly to our hotel Phi Phi Chang Grand Resort. Checked in, changed into swimming suits underneath T-shirts and shorts, grabbed a towel, put on some sun block and headed back out for lunch, just like how we planned. We arrived at IBEX's office a little after 1:30 pm. Louise explained the whole itinerary of Fantastic 3 in 1 tour to us in great...

The Epic Plan With IBEX Climbing & Tours

"What do you want to do on Koh Phi Phi island?" I laid on my stomach holding Nexus 7 and asked Han in our hotel room close to Patong beach in Phuket on a raining day. It was two days before we left for Koh Phi Phi island... "I definitely want to do some snorkeling! How about you?" Han was on his Mac working. (He enjoys working everywhere. Computer and internet are his basic requirements wherever we go. This is the beauty of a tech guy's world! haha...) "Snorkeling for sure! I want to do some rock climbing too!" That's when I started digging deeply into the things to do on Koh Phi Phi island...
