If you are travelling to Koh Phi Phi from Phuket then the best way to do the journey is by ferry from Rassada Pier near Phuket Town direct to Koh Phi Phi. There is no advantage to going by road to Krabi to catch a ferry to Koh Phi Phi.

- Travel Tip: If your resort in Koh Phi Phi is in the far north of the Island consider taking the Andaman Wavemaster ferry, as this service continues onto Laem Tong Beach pier near the Holiday Inn Resort Phi Phi Island.

Travel from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi via Krabi
The journey by boat from Krabi to Koh Phi Phi takes about the same time as the ferry from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi, and although the ferry tickets are cheaper from Krabi to Koh Phi Phi, once you have paid for getting to Krabi the price of the journey is nearly the same: there is no real cost saving for a journey which is actually several hours longer.
We therefore recommend that unless you plan to spend some time visiting the many attractions of Krabi Province on the way that you simply take the ferry direct from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi.
Arrival in Koh Phi Phi
There are two different piers on Koh Phi Phi. Ton Sai Pier is the main pier and the first one that the boats arrive at. This where the majority of the resorts are located along with the main town. If you want to go to Laem Tong Beach pier you need to take the 08.30 or 13.30 Andaman Wavemaster ferry, it takes an extra hour to travel round to Laem Tong Beach and costs an extra 50 THB per person.
