    Phi Phi Islands tour by speedboat

    Phi Phi Islands

    Tour the beautiful Phi Phi Islands by speedboat and you'll enjoy a day of exploring the most stunning sights around these very popular and very beautiful islands in Southern Thailand.

    This includes such remarkable places as Maya Bay, made famous by the movie The Beach, as well as Viking Cave and Monkey Beach. You'll also stop on Phi Phi Don for an international buffet lunch. The advantage of traveling by speedboat is that you can get from one point of interest to the next much quicker than by other alternatives.

    Sea kayaking in Phang Nga Bay gives you a unique, personal perspective of this amazing part of the world. The striking limestone islands and caves are a wonder to behold. The small sea kayak is the only way to get right up close, through the smallest channels and into beautiful secret lagoons which are inaccessible by any larger boat.

    You'll be treated to fantastic views of nature at its finest. You'll also be taken out to the best spots – such as Hong Island, Panak Island and the famous James Bond Island – on a large cruiser, which later transfers you into kayaks to explore each.
