Popular Pizzerias

If you're a pizza lover, then you simply have to try these massive face-sized slices! Priced at just 80 bahts each, they're an absolute steal - and trust us when we say that one slice is more than enough to keep you feeling full for hours on end. While this picture doesn't quite do justice to just how big these slices really are, we can promise you that they're a sight to behold in person. As for toppings, you can't go wrong with a classic pepperoni and onion combo or a simple yet delicious margherita pizza.

Phi Phi Viewpoint

For those who shy away from working out and get winded after a mere 100-meter run, this may be a bit of a challenge. But trust us, when you reach the top of this climb, the breathtaking panoramic view of the island will make it all worthwhile. And if you can spare a few extra hours, catching the sunrise or sunset from the Ko Phi Phi Viewpoint is an absolute must. Just make sure to check the timings beforehand: from April to November, sunrise is typically between 6.00 and 6.30 a.m., while from December to March it's usually between 6.30 and 7.00 a.m..

For sunset, the best times are from February to July (6.00-6.45 p.m.) and from August to January (6.00-6.30 p.m.). As you make the climb, be sure to bring at least one ice-cold bottle of water (which will inevitably turn warm) and 20 bahts for the entrance fee. And remember, as this is a Muslim area, alcohol is not permitted. If you need a quick refreshment along the way, there are a few stalls selling ice cream and drinks. The journey to the top takes around 25 minutes, but the views you'll see along the way are simply unforgettable.

Slinky Beach Bar

If you're looking for a wild and unforgettable night out, then you simply have to hit up the bars along Lo Dalum. Here, you can drink to your heart's content, meet all sorts of interesting people, and even get up close and personal with some seriously crazy fire performances and games. From jumping through flaming rings to skipping on ropes that are literally on fire, there's no shortage of heart-pumping activities to keep you entertained.

And if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can even try your hand (or rather, your spine) at a game of limbo with a bar that's been set ablaze. Just be warned: you may end up with singed chest hairs and burnt hands! Trust us, if you haven't experienced the madness of Lo Dalum, you haven't truly experienced all that KPP has to offer.

Full Moon Party

Let's be real, the whole reason you came to Ko Phi Phi was for one thing and one thing only: the epic full moon parties. Sure, they may not be quite as legendary as the ones on Ko Phangan, but they're definitely making some serious headway. For those who aren't in the know, a full moon party is an all-night beach bash that involves copious amounts of drinking, dancing, and maybe even a little bit of drug use (if that's your thing).

The first one kicked off back in 1985 on Hat Rin beach on Ko Phangan, and since then, they've become a staple of the backpacker circuit. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, all Full Moon Parties across Thailand's islands have been cancelled since March 2020 until further notice.

Thai Bamboo Tattoo

Tattoo parlors are literally on every street. Pick a date, get completely wasted, and make a mistake you'll probably regret over. Think of all the stories that you'll be able to share with your grandchildren one day!

In Thailand, 'bamboo tattoos' are done using a traditional poking technique by hand. This method was first used by monks when they perform the sak yant tattoos that you typically see on Muay Thai fighters. Many celebrities around the world has also gotten themselves one, such as Angelina Jolie - which made it so popular today!
