Koh Phi Phi?

Hi guys,

Myself and a friend (both late 20s) are heading to Thailand in September. We have already decided on the majority of our itinerary and are looking for some help in regards to Phi Phi.

This will be our first time in Asia and will be traveling for six months so keeping accommodation costs to a minimum is a must. Most of the accommodation we have already searched for other areas within Thailand are averaging about €10 per night (with good trip advisor reviews.)

I can’t seem to find any cheap accommodation, with good reviews for safety and cleanliness, for Phi Phi (well, around the same price as other places) and have a couple of questions;

1. Is Phi Phi generally a lot more expensive?

2. Is it worth it? Would we be missing out if we left it out and chose somewhere else?

We will also be staying in Bangkok, Koh Lanta, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan.

I hope I’ve given you enough information to help us. Any help or recommendations would be really appreciated.

Thanks :)

Phi Phi is more expensive. Demand for rooms is huge, therefore no competition to keep the prices down & great quality, unless you're at one of the top places on the island.

As we always suggest, find somewhere you like that you can afford

Phi Phi is worth it in my opinion

It's worth noting that September is rainy season for Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta but not for Koh Tao and Koh Phangan. You may want to avoid the Andaman Coast during the rainy season, if you are traveling for six months and are flexible with your travel plan.

Phi Phi is overpriced but it's worth a night or two for sure.
