Koh Phi Phi is a text book example of what happens to a very beautiful place if you don’t regulate it properly. The main town is Koh Phi Phi Don has become overdeveloped to the point that it has lost its original charm and now resembles Haad Rin in Koh Phangan, which is a lot of fun for younger visitors but not the island paradise it once was.

Koh Phi Phi Leh also has had simply too many tourists. Light is on the horizon, however, as the Thai Government is starting to get tough on regulating tourism on the island. Resorts built illegally on Koh Phi Phi Don are being pulled down and Maya Beach (where the ‘Beach’ was filmed) was closed to tourists for a long time and the eco-system has started to recover with the return of marine species such as black-tip sharks.
