Phi Phi Island Guesthouses
Phi Phi Island Accommodation | Guesthouses on Phi Phi Island
Guesthouses all over Asia give the traveler or backpacker on a budget the perfect opportunity to travel for long periods. Guesthouses also are ideal for those who want top meet other travelers, don't want to book ahead, take a chance and generally go with flow.
One of the most famous Phi Phi backpacker guesthouses is Baan Thai Guesthouse where you regularly see people spilling onto the street,... breakfast, lunch and diner seems to be a continual party.
As Phi Phi Island is a small place it can get busy to overflowing. Because of this, when the island gets full, the prices of the guesthouses will vary according demand. Busy time can give double the price of low season. At some times a few extra dollars actually pays for a quality bungalow in a resort where prices have been set for the whole season. The added advantage here is you can book ahead and make sure you have a room.
Getting off the ferry without accommodation
If you arrive off the pier without Phi Phi accommodation, you will be met by the touts, a not very pleasant experience but I believe pretty common all over the world. They are not aggressive but some can be more "persistent than others". If you walk through 50 meters of so you will find it a lot less congested and you can ask an agent what's available or just carry on and walk past the Reggae bar, Irish bar and head for the party of town for those on a budget.
