Koh Phi Phi, Thailand, is an island group on the west coast of Thailand. The small archipelago consists of six islands, all of which belong to the Krabi Province. The largest and the most populated island of the group is Ko Phi Phi Don. Ko Phi Phi Leh is a bit smaller and became really famous when the movie “The Beach” was partly produced on the island (check out Ao Maya, the filming location -- this lovely spot on the western shoreline is flanked by green-clad cliffs). On Ko Mai Phai there is some snorkeling available, but compared to the other two larger islands, the opportunities are limited. Ko Yung, Bida Nok, and Bida Nai are the remaining three islands of the archipelago. However, they are way less popular with tourists.
