KOH PHI PHI
Actually, Koh Phi Phi is not a separate atoll but an archipelago of six tiny islands. The largest one and the only inhabitable one is Phi Phi Don. To be honest, Western conveniences have skirted this place, not so many tourists with beaches and hotels not quite up to the same standard as say, Koh Samui. What makes up for that is definitely the cleanest ocean in Thailand, where the water nearly glows from down under and you can see the ocean bed dozens of meters down. This place is unrivalled for snorkelling and diving. Phi Phi has everything for you to try plunging into the water with a mask and paddles, scores of schools, professional instructors and low equipment fees. The island has several spots with drastically different underwater landscapes: Hin Klang coral reef, Monkey Beach coastal reef and the rocky surroundings of Hin Phae. All three are worth seeing.
