Phi Phi Don is the larger of the 2 Phi Phi islands, together with is the to a greater extent than developed of the ii – having quite a few hotels etc on it together with beingness a haven for backpackers. Phi Phi Leh has no evolution on it whatsoever – but tin sack live on readily accessed via a brusk boat ride from Phi Phi Don. Below is a photograph of Phi Phi Don which was took inward the 80’s I recall – earlier it became commercialised & touristy. As you lot tin sack encounter at that topographic point are no hotels on the strip of province betwixt the 2 higher pieces of land. I tin sack imagine this isle was a existent precious stone of a uncovering on the backpacker tourist trail inward the early on days.

Krabi, Ao Nang area, Thailand
