This will be my Tonsai Village things to do tip
Once you are on a lunch stop at phi phi don, be sure to eat your lunch fast as you are given just 50 minutes to 1 hour to go around phi phi don before going back to loh samah bay in phi phi ley or monkey beach further north of phi phi don for snorkeling. This bustling community of local Muslim, Thai trader, and western diver, traveler and holiday maker create a rich and colourful spectacle and a wondrous area for shopping! This is the heart of the islands where the Thailand Style bazaar like village is noisy, exciting and fun, where there are many hotels and resort, a wide nightlife scene and some of the best restaurants on the island. If you prefer to swim at the other side of tonsai bay, the loh dalum bay, it is just a two minute walk from tonsai village.

This will be my tips on Phi Phi Don Island: The first one is the overview
Phi Phi Don Island is the only inhabited Island in the Phi Phi Island Chain and where there are commercial activities. there are restaurants, scuba shops, 7-11 convenience stores, fruit juice shops, beach bars, souvenir shops, garment shops, hotels at Phi Phi Don Island and most of these are concentrated on the Isthmus between the two large limestone cliffs of Phi Phi Don at Tonsai Bay. Tonsai Bay has a pier for docking the big express boats and the long tail boats and speed boats just dock at the beach. the other side of Tonsai Bay is Hat Yao beach, where the water is calmer and is not deep and with lots of corals.
Most Phi Phi Islands Day Tours have buffet lunches at Phi Phi don and you have 1 hour extra time to shop or hang around or walk to Hat Yao Beach to enjoy a brief swim or snorkel.

If you have a craving to do some haggeling with locals, head right from the pier to Tonsai Village. Every type of cheesy tourist item can be had here. The area is literally crammed with shopping options for about 5 blocks intersecting with each other. There are also a ton of restaurant and bar options. Here is the place for ATM's, money exchange, internet cafe's and travel agencies as well. Even if you are not into shopping, this area has a very energetic vibe just to stroll around in and people watch. This area also has cheaper accomodations compared to beach front.

Loh Dalum beach will be more of your thing if you are craving a beautiful beach, but with plenty of busy action, especially among the young backpacker set. The beach is easy to get to. As soon as you jump off the ferry, the beach is on the opposite end of the pier, so just walk a straight line across the village of Tonsai. There are tons of places to eat and drink, right along the beach. And at night, this beach is famous for some outragous fire dancing performances and awesome techno dancing right until dawn. I would say best for people under 35.

The famous Long Beach on Phi Phi Don is the place to be if you want the ultimate in physical beauty and relaxed environment. Beautiful white sands complement a crystal clear shallow reef. The scenery is great, but I will say I wish there was more wave action for swimming, also on some parts of the beach the water can have quite a few rocks embedded in the shallow water. So overall, not exactly a hard core swimmers paradise, but definately a snorkelers delight. Still, what a wonderful place to chill, take a dip, read a book, grab a chang beer at one of the many beach bars and restaurants that line the beach, and realize what a lucky rascal you are for being there.

We booked a "Sea Angel" day cruise from Patong in Phuket to the Phi Phi islands for 1000 Thai baht. (AUD $35)
It was a sunny hot day and the water was so calm and smooth.
The scenery was amazing really with the islands jutting out of the water like city sky scrapers.
This was great value for a days trip I thought beause it included a full buffet lunch plus transfers to and from the Boat plus snorkeling over a coral reef near Phi Phi ley island.
We also had a few hours free time in Phi Phi Don island to relax on the AO Loh Dalam beach and to check out the shops .
The Captain who's name was Mon was a great guy who was very helpful and informative and we chatted most of the way home.

We joined a group of Thai friends on a liveaboard diving trip for 4 days 3 nights around the islands of Southern Phuket and Phiphi on board MV Vilaisamut for about 7,000 Baht all dives, meals and accommodation included. Dive sites we went to were Hin Bida Nok (saw leopard shark), Phiphi Lay (like an aquarium very pretty shallow wall), Phiphi Don, Mosquito Island, Hin Klai (lots of leopard sharks and a baby white tip shark), King Cruiser Wreck (nice large caverns and staircase), Anemone Reef (tons of anemone very colorful and leopards sharks again and seahorse) and Shark Point (of course Leopard sharks and seahorse again). Didnt expect diving in this area to be great, but it WAS!

Suggest to leave early around 7AM - 7:30AM from Phi Phi Don to catch some relaxing time at Maya Bay. Starting 9:30AM onwards, loads of tourists will be coming and the place will be swarmed with people. Other alternative is to go during low season to catch some rest and relaxation as there will not be as many crowds.

It's a cave in Phi Phi Le island, the smallest of the Phi Phi islands. You can take a boat to the entry of the cave, where you go off at the wooden jetty and walk inside the cave. But it's not much to see inside the cave except for birds and their nest in the roof.

Take the day trip out to Phi Phi.
A full day of snorkelling and simply relaxing.
If you book your Phi Phi island tour through your resident hotel, you will be given a departure time as well as the expected time of arrival at the end of the day. Most hotels have their own guide who will accompany you on the tour.
You will be taken to a pier or beach where you will be taken by high- speed boat to the island.
