Koh Phi Phi Reviews
Feels like mini Europe Apr 27, 2011
As a South East Asian, it was to my surprise I was a minority on Phi Phi Island. The majority of travellers were white people from everywhere - Europe, US, etc.
Anyways it is a small island, with rows and rows of shops, eateries, dive schools, day tour companies, shops selling tourist-y knick knacks and souvenirs, clothing...
One thing to note is that practically ALL eateries were catered to the Europeans! You could find Italian food in almost every restaurant. Authentic Thai food? Not very authentic, and also without the variety that a place like say, Bangkok has to offer.
Beach party at night was mediocre... Crap music...
Overall, a place I will not return to.
However you'd probably like to visit if interested in day tours for snorkelling/canoeing at places like Maya Bay where they filmed "The Beach".
