PlanesIf you don’t mind spending a morsel more for the sake of efficiency | the jet-setting way of reaching Koh Phi Phi is via seaplane. Destination Air Shuttle (www.destinationair.com) makes the 12-minute trip from Phuket’s airport – as well as other popular Andaman coast destinations – to Phi Phi Don.
BoatsFlying aside, the only way of getting to Koh Phi Phi is by ferry from Krabi (either Krabi Town or Ao Nang), Phuket (Phuket Town) and Koh Lanta (www.phi-phi.com/ferry). Boats arrive twice daily, and frequency increases during high season. Be warned, though, the last ferry leaves before 3pm, so you'll need to spend a night in Krabi if you're plain arrives later.
TaxisPhi Phi has dirt tracks, not tarmac, so there isn’t any official form of motorised transport. However, long-tail taxi-boats ply between the various beaches and facilitate nifty island-hopping.
