If you've never been to Phi Phi island or Thailand for that matter, you're in for a treat. Famed among the most beautiful tropical places in the world, Phi Phi is one of the most popular tourist attractions. It was here that the movie "The Beach" featuring Leonardo DiCaprio was shot. The island's coastal hills are mostly composed of limestone from the mountain range in Phang-nga province. The mountains and islands have steep cliffs, large caves and dwarf trees growing out of it from the rocks. Phi Phi islands can be reached by boat from either Phuket or Krabi at about the same distance.
Among the islets, Phi Phi Don being the larger one which lies in the north, is well known for its fine beaches and coral formations along the two beautiful curved bays, Ton Sai Bay and Lodalam Bay. In the south and others at the northern end of the island, several shops at Ton Sai can arrange diving and snorkelling trips around the island or the nearby islands of Phi Phi Le Island, Yung Island and Mai Phai (Bamboo) Island.
Of course, it is good to know that Thailand is fairly cheap in price if you're on a budget with the family. Bargains can be found or made for almost everything. Food and drinks, including the alcoholic ones are also sold at low cost. There are some terrific Thai hotels to suit all budgets. No prizes as to why its fun being in Thailand. To top it off, the sun shines all year round and the stunning Phi Phi beaches are just so inviting to get a tan.
A mother's day trip like this surely beats anything else you could think of. Prepare with other family members early so all those that want to go won't miss out. A trip to Thailand means you also need to check if you need to prepare a Visa for travel and even any inoculations are needed. However, with this country being one of the top most visited places on earth, it won't be difficult. So, prepare for an Asian mother's day fiesta.
