Koh Phi Phi is the superstar of the Thai islands, in part because of the 2000 film “The Beach,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio. It is an archipelago full of breathtakingly beautiful beaches, impressive rock formations, tropical fish and stunning viewpoints. In fact, Koh Phi Phi consists of several islands of which Phi Phi Don and the uninhabited Phi Phi Ley are the most famous.

Most people know the island besides the movie “The Beach” because of the tsunami in 2014. Then the island was severely affected in December, but fortunately completely rebuilt in a short time afterwards.

In particular, young British backpackers travel to the islands in large numbers, making it now a true party island. The charm of beautiful Koh Phi Phi has somewhat disappeared thanks to tourism, but backpacking here still remains very popular.

When in Krabi, don’t miss the cool climb to Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Suea). Challenge yourself to climb the 1,237 steps that lead you to a limestone rock 600 metres up, where you can visit the impressive golden Buddha that sits on top. From here you have a great view over the entire valley of Krabi.

According to many stories, a tiger once lived in the limestone caves, which gave the temple its name. Now there are no tigers, but there are plenty of cheeky monkeys, so make sure you always keep your belongings with you. After all, the monkeys steal everything they can get their hands on.

A good time to visit the temple is at sunrise or sunset, to see the magical colours of the sky against the gold of the Buddha.
