Hello my Lovelies! It’s time for a new travel tips article and this time we take you back to Thailand, more specifically to share our experimented tips on how to get to Phi Phi Islands. Enjoy!
Koh Phi Phi is a group of islands without an airport and can only be reached by ferry or speedboat from Krabi, Phuket, Ao Nang, Riley, and Ko Lanta. Ferries leaving from Krabi and Phuket have networks to Phi Phi all over the year, while the rest is only guaranteed to cover this line in high season (normally from October to May).

Reaching Ko Phi Phi Island from Phuket Airport
Many people come to Phuket for the sole purpose of taking a boat to Ko Phi Phi. This was our case as Phuket never called us too much attention and we had other priorities. Ahead we had Phi Phi, Railay, Koh Phangan and Bangkok, different places but all special.
The first thing we need to know is where the boat leaves to the Phi Phi Islands. To reach these islands you will have to go to Rasada Pier port, for which you have to cross the whole island from the airport.
How to get from Phuket Airport to Rasada Pier
Think that you are in Phuket and everything is much more expensive than in the rest of Thailand, including transportation. To get to the port, you have several options:

For this option you will have to take a first bus that goes from the airport to Phuket Town. It takes about 1 hour and costs THB 100 (€ 2.5). You can see schedules on the official website (airportbusphuket.com).
Once in Phuket Town you will have to take a tuk-tuk, a taxi or another bus that takes about 20 minutes to Rasada Pier. In total the trip should be about 150THB (3’7 €)
