Visit some of Thailand's top tropical destinations
Your 6-hour tour kicks off with hotel pickup in Phuket and a transfer to the nearby pier for departure to the Phi Phi Islands. Enjoy a light lunch before embarking on a speedboat journey to some of most stunning destinations in the Andaman Sea.
Your guide and driver will transport you to Monkey Beach in Tonsai Bay, where you'll have time to relax on a 328-foot (100-meter) stretch of pristine white shoreline. Learn how this cliffside beach got its name from the macaques that reside on the island.

Your speedboat will proceed to Phileh Cove and Viking Cave of Phi Phi Leh. Spend time at a beach made famous by the movie The Beach, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

After unforgettable picture-perfect moments at some of Thailand's top destinations for travelers, you'll return to Phuket with drop-off at your hotel.
Phuket Island Hopper(Thailand)
The trip starts with a complimentary hotel pickup from your lobby to the starting location at Phuket Island Hopper pier on Koh Sirey in the east of Phuket. You will get a warm welcome and introduction from the guide about all the parts of the trip such as the tour program, the weather & sea conditions and the tides. After a light lunch, you will head to Phi Phi Islands aboard the convenient speed boat in less than 1 hour.
The first snorkeling stop is at Monkey Beach in Tonsai Bay, a 100 m long strip of white sand at the feet of an 80 m cliff. The beach got its name from the crab-eating Macaque monkey colony living here. Superb emerald-colored water laps at the beach side. Continue to Phi Phi Don where you will have time to explore the island and do some sightseeing at your own.
Sail over to Koh Phi Phi Leh and cruise around the island to discover its magnificent natural beauty, with canyon-like fjords at Pi Leh Bay, Loh Sama Bay and the Viking Cave in which swifts’ nests are harvested to prepare the world-famous bird’s nest soup. After seeing all these natural wonders you head toward the most famous beach of Phi Phi Island.
Koh Phi Phi Leh’s Maya Bay is a broken circle of crystal-clear waters surrounded by high vertical rocky cliffs. The beach (where the eponymous movie with Leonardo Di Caprio was shot) faces the entrance of the bay. According to a local Sea Gipsy legend Maya is the name of ‘a sea princess’ who helped them find shelter in the bay during a storm. You can see the beach only from the boat as Maya Bay is currently closed by Thailand's Department of National Parks.
The last stop will be at the hidden gem of Khai Nok for relaxation, rest and tranquility. It is a small island tucked away in Phang Nga Bay, just 30 minutes away from the east coast of Phuket. Return back to the pier in Phuket and your hotel with brine in your hair, a dark suntan (and bright red skin for those who did not use sun protection lotion) and the exciting feeling shared by those who have just been through a thrilling adventure.

The tour was amazing and we regret didn't book a full day tour. The beaches were the best that we visited in Phuket. We had a stop to snorkel and it was an unforgetable experience. The lunch served in the begining of the tour was not good. Luckly I had a nice breakfast at the hotel, but, my husband prefered to sleep a bit more, just had the lunch from the tour. When we came back to the hotel after the tour, we were really hungry, but, very happy for the amazing afternoon in the Phi Phi Islands.
This tour was great! Everything from the customer service help to the food served. The only disappointment was that we weren't allowed to go onto Monkey Beach. Everyone was excited for an up close and personal encounter with the monkeys, but that didn't happen. :
This is a great option for those that have a short stay... Places are amazing but as a suggestion it would be nicer if we would have gottem down at the monkey Island and at the pier the place smells really bad and its very durty I recommend they do some cleaning.
