We have chosen speedboat to take us on full day trip to Phi Phi Islands.
We started in Royal Phuket Marina and after 45 minutes we arrived to our first stop Khai Nai Island.
Then we visited many famous spots around the Phi Phi Islands (Maya Bay, Monkey Beach, Bamboo Island...) and we stopped for sightseeing, taking pictures, swimming and snorkeling.
Many tourists visit islands every day so you can not expect to be alone in paradise.
Full day trip with transfer from hotel, speedboat, lunch and soft drinks included, costs from 2500 to 3500 THB (app. 75 - 100 USD or 65 - 90 EUR) per person. Speedboat is really fast (3 × 250 HP engine) with speed of 35 knots.
The whole trip was very enjoyable and the weather, even it was July, was just perfect.
