phi-phi.com is a Thai and English joint venture. It was the dream of Phil Russell, an Englishman who first visited Thailand almost 9 years ago and his wife Suree who has been running Siam UK Trading Co Ltd for 12 years. It is the natural development from their work in the Thai Tourism Industry promoting travel and accommodation.
Our reservation offices are based on Phuket Island and with 14 people staffing our Phi Phi Island offices we can ensure maximum customer ease and comfort. Phil Russell proudly confides... "the in depth service we are able to provide our customers, combined with the technology the Internet has given, ensures top quality service 7-days a week at the touch of a button."
Our customers range from ex-pats living and working in Asia such as in Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia to our secondary markets of Europe, Australia and U.S.A. As a small island there is a wealth of water sports and a surprising night life and so it’s very popular amongst the 25-55 age group. It is an ideal island for the independent traveler.
The future development of phi-phi.com is focused on keeping the guide up to date and working with the hotel and resort owners, to bring the best hotel and bungalow prices to the web.
