The viewpoint on Koh Phi Phi is one of the icons of Thailand, if not all of South East Asia. Nothing beats looking down at the gorgeous beaches, towering peaks, and narrow straight between the two land masses. Getting to the viewpoint, however, is a bit difficult. The hike is actually accessible by those of all capabilities, but expect the process to be steep and hot. The first viewpoint is a steep staircase of over 300 steps leading to a small shop of drinks with a fantastic scene. The couple that runs the place is extremely nice, and moderately priced drinks are a must restock. Be jealous, as they live in the bungalow next door and have the view every day. Those in search of better views will take the 10-minute hike further to a second viewpoint at the very top of the hill, with the best viewpoint of Koh Phi Phi. Less steep and no steps, the walk is a bit easier than the first. However, the heat of the island is ever present. Regardless, this extra trek is highly recommended for the best photo-op on the island. A bonus hike should be included for sunset.
