Are the Phi Phi islands worth the hype?
Question

I want to avoid overly touristy activities when travelling. However, the Phi Phi islands look stunning. Is it worth the crowds for a chance to experience them?

Don’t let the crowds prevent you from experiencing authentic, awe-inspiring beauty at Ko Phi Phi. While you will experience some over-tourism, the sea is expansive and vivid turquoise. Above you are towering limestone cliffs and formations. The islands are truly breathtaking and worth seeing. 

With that being said, the Thai government has shut down a large portion of the islands since 2018 to repair the damage tourists cause to land and sea life. The government is luckily building 10,000 corals off the most famous beach which remains closed. 

I suggest that you take a day tour rather than book a complete stay. There are other islands with comparable scenery, such as Koh Lanta. This island is also more relaxed and not overly developed.
