Getting There -- The easiest but costliest method to get here is to take a flight from Phuket on Destination Air (tel. 07632-8637-9; fax 07632-8598; www.destinationair.com), whose fleet of amphibious Cessnas fly regularly in high season to resort islands such as Phi Phi. The journey takes just 16 minutes. Boats from the pier in central Krabi Town run at least twice daily (10am and 3pm; more in high season) and cost from 350B.

From Phuket, there are a number of ferry services leaving from the Ratchada (Rasada) Pier near Phuket Town, at 8:30am and 1:30pm, with rates around 450B for the 2-hour trip. Be sure to check out where the life jackets are stashed, as several Phi Phi ferries sank in the last few years, fortunately with no serious injuries.
