    Good view
    This place is amazing, beautiful view, nice atmosphere and fresh air. Look down and see a beautiful sea view. Especially when the sun sets, it's even more beautiful. And the hotel is very romantic.

    Definitely Worth a visit
    Steep hike however definitely worth a visit. Due to heat , either go in morning i.e before 10am or go just before evening like 4pm. We went during evening to see sunset. You can spend 2hrs easily. There's a small restaurant at top to buy some snacks/tea/cold drinks etc. Went till viewpoint2. 50baht per person fee.

    Long hike, nice view.
    There are multiple routes to reach the viewpoint. make sure to opt for the stairs for the easiest hike. There is signage all the way to the top, directing you to the viewpoint. While the steps may be a bit steep, take it slow and most people will be fine. Just bring enough water. The views from the top are stunning and really worth the effort. Both viewpoint one and two cost 30 baht to visit, make sure to bring cash. There is also a small store with drinks at the top (alcohol is banned). Although I didn't proceed to viewpoint 3, i had heard the views are even better.

    Worth the hike!
    There are three viewpoints. Viewpoint 1 and 2 cost 50 baht. Viewpoint 3 cost another 20 baht. 70 baht total to get to the top. All are worth the price of admission. The hike is paved, but long. Give yourself 45 minutes to get to the top and bring water or buy along the way. Google maps does not show the correct start from town. When in town, and you can't find the trailhead (the start), turn to the right and go about 40 ft ( 13m) and the trail is marked. To get from 2 to 3 is not very well marked. At 2 there is a large flat rock, go behind the rock and down to the right to find the trail for 3. 3 has a better view of sunsets than sunrises, still a beautiful view of the city and western mountains. Photo from Viewpoint 3.

    Watch out for the monkeys! and bring water
    Cruised on the long tail from the chill side of the island in the morning. We kicked off our climb before 10 AM, and trust me, it got crazy hot by the time we hit the peak. The view? Absolutely breathtaking! People everywhere posing for pics and offering to snap one for you. Lace up those sneakers, pack some water, and don't wimp out—make it to the tippy-top! Oh, and watch out for the monkeys hanging out at the summit. Mama monkey's a sneaky bag snatcher, and the sign warns she's got a mean bite. Keep an eye on your stuff!

    Perfect view
    The viewpoint is a must do if you stay on Phi Phi island. It’s a walk up to around 300m level, the first part is stair climbing and the second part a steep way up to the viewpoint. 50bath for viewpoint 1+2 is cheap. The view from point 2 is great and you will not forget. Start as early in the morning as possible because the heat will become hotter and hotter. I started at 8am and needed around 55min up to viewpoint 2.I have drunken in total 2l water and it’s definitely not easy. Viewpoint 3 was closed and is only a little bit higher than point 2.

    Koh Phi Phi Viewpoint showcases the island's stunning beauty from a bird's-eye perspective. The hike is challenging, but the payoff is the stunning vista of the sparkling sea and lush landscapes. It's a must-see attraction for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike!

    Worth the Hike - Make sure to wear sneakers!
    The view and place were beautiful! I went to Viewpoint 1 and 2 and appreciated both despite the very sweaty hike up lol. I was very glad I wore my running shoes instead of slippers! It gets quite steep (still very safe) in some areas. When going downhill, make sure your shoes have grip as the slope can get slippery if wet. There are handrails there if you need. There is a 50bht entry fee at Viewpoint 1's entrance. The funds go towards maintaining the viewpoint/s. It was also worth it with the thought and presentation that went into the decoration at VP1 specifically. VP2 was also nice and clean. The reason for the 4-stars (based on my experience) is because I found it to be overcrowded at VP2 at the time that I went which was around sunset. While I understand that sunset is THE ideal time to go, it would have been nice if the others weren't so loud and smoked so much weed that it made the whole place smell so pungent. Though, I do understand that I may have just been unlucky at the time. Nevertheless, the viewpoint itself is definitely a 5-star. There is a cafe at VP2 for you to order drinks from. The views are amazing, you can see the 2 sides of the island and generally the beautiful Koh Phi Phi landscape. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.

It was a hard trek up but definitely worth it. We came from phi phi village and followed the signs up. It was a walk in the woods on a small “trail” with only a few signs. Don’t worry and just enjoy the walk in nature. Be mindful as we saw giant lizards, scorpions and even had a monkey come by and pass the trail!

It is a small fee to get in and to use the toilet (bring your own tissue; when I went they didn’t have any). There are drinks up there for purchase and the view is incredible!

I got really amazed with the view! However, It is a bit challenging to get to the first viewpoint, not mentioning the second and final one. Make sure you have water and try to go there not in hottest times of the day.

You have to walk up steep steps to reach to the first view point. The viewpoint 1 is lovely! It costs only 30b to enter (paid after taking all the steps). If you get there, get more water (you can buy it there) and head to the viewpoint 2 (no more viewpoints after that). The path to 2nd viewpoint is not as steep as the first one, but believe me you will get tired. After all it is all worth it. At the very top you will see some breathtaking views, can have a coffee in the cafe, and take beautiful pictures.
Watch out - as a European I was surprised by the lack of fencing or any protection. In Asia it’s normal - just the wildlife :)

To sum up - really worth going, however, only 30% of my travel grop decided to go to the second one.
ENJOY :)

We went all the way through the woods, don't to that, it is way to hot, and longer in distance. There is stairs right in the middle of the town, it is much quicker. You will get 2 views, one is view point and next is little higher where you can see both side of the island. Its is worth claiming those stairs. There is a shop at the top so you can get cool and refreshing drinks. Go for a smoothie right at the top. Take as much photos as you can! I went there day time, it was really hot. Entrance is 30 bhat. If you can go in the morning or for a sunset, it must be even more beautiful. Note for sunset a lot of people go, so go little earlier to avoid the crowd and stay till sunset.

Went twice during my stay in phi phi. First time was at sunset, very beautiful but also very crowded( it became a photo shoot with people queuing to get a picture with the view).

However I returned early the next morning and had it basically to myself. Worth the walk , view is amazing :) .

The trek upto the viewpoint was a bit hard and tiring and highly recommend to take water or drinks with you. There is viewpoint 2 and viewpoint 3 and 3rd one requires more climbing but it's better to go upto the 3rd viewpoint than stopping at 2. The best time to visit is before 10 in the morning. We went there at about 3pm and the lighting was not good for photos. Also the colour difference is not clearly visible with sun light so bright. Also they charge 30 THB for entrance. There is a snack bar at the top and they have juices and other snacks.

I'm 64yr and it was a bit of a hike to get up there but it is concrete all the way. Well worth the effort though. Great views from both viewpoints but of course number 2 is the crowing glory. Entry fee is 30 baht.
I was surprised as to the amount of time and labour that must have gone in to creating all the well maintained gardens and surrounding sculptures. Cold drinks and souvenirs available at Viewpoint 2. The higher cafe shop was closed, no doubt due to the pandemic. But don't despair as the views will have you clicking away.
Certainly worth the effort.

Amazing place to visit when you are in the island. Great view of Ton Sai bay and Loh Dalum Bay together.
10 minutes walk from the pier to the start of stairs.
Stairs: 315 in toto, takes 20-30 minutes to climb up.
Cost: 30 Baht per person.
Time: Mornings or sunset
Must wear/carry: comfortable shoes and water bottle
Viewpoint 2: is much much better and only 10 minutes away from viewpoint 1. Must visit.

While descending, it is 10 minutes walk from viewpoint 2 to start of stairs and five minute walk from 2 to 1.

There are 4 viewpoints on Koh Phi Phi, we only opted to visit viewpoint 2 as you have to pay separately for all of them. Viewpoint 2 was 30 baht per person but you can get directly there (i.e. you do not have to pay to pass viewpoint 1). It was a tough trek up to the viewpoint but the sights were definitely worth it. We reccomend going near sunset, as we did, for the best views. There is a few services at the top as well like a shop and cafe which we didn't visit but looked nice. The viewpoint itself is a wooden deck overhanging a drop off which is surrounded by boulders making for very scenic photo opportunities.
Overall I would suggest making an effort to visit the viewpoint when staying on the island; viewpoint 1 did not look as good.

From the town about 40 minute or slightly more steady uphill slog! A few different routes but well signposted to view 1,2 and the 3 at the top. You are charged a small amount near the top no matter which way you access but it’s not much and well worth it . There is a toilet up there( chargeable 10baht ) but very clean and a little cafe

View Point 3 is simply stunning. We did not go via VP1 on way up but descended through VP 1 which IMHO is totally underwhelming. I think it is 20THB each to enter the VP platform where they serve cold drinks and snacks. You DO need to take off your shoes as is the custom in many places in Thailand. Note they also charge to use the toilet which I think is a little bit cheeky if you purchase drinks and have paid the nominal entrance fee!!!!
TIP: Take water with you on the treck
