Thailand Off the beaten path

Thailand Off the beaten path includes many wonderful places such as the twin islands Ko Phi Phi Leh and Ko PhiPhi Don.

 

These islands are at equal distances of Krabi and Phuket, about 40 kilometres.

 

They represent the tropical dream, with fine white sand, clear waters of green and blue colour, elegant palms and luxuriant vegetation.

 

The islands were affected by the 2004 tsunami but the locals used this occasion to start again, developing the area in more modest manner.

All the hotels are on Ko Phi Phi Don because Ko Phi Leh is an empty national park.

 

Ko Phi Phi Don covers an area of 28 square kilometres. In North, Laem Tong offers a beautiful marine landscape. Ko Phi Phi Leh is a beautiful island of only 6.6 square kilometres, surrounded by mountains and rocks. The Tham Vikings cave is situated in the island’s North-East; the King Bhumibol called this cave ‘the snake’s cave’ because of a stone that looks like the mythic creature he saw in his visit here in 1972.
