Phi Phi Islands
Ko Phi Phi Don ("ko" meaning "island" in the Thai language) is the largest island of the group, and is the only island with permanent inhabitants, although the beaches of the second largest island, Ko Phi Phi Lee (or "Ko Phi Phi Ley"), are visited by many people as well. There are no accommodation facilities on this island, but it is just a short boat ride from Ko Phi Phi Don. The rest of the islands in the group are not much more than large limestone rocks jutting out of the sea.
Ko Phi Phi Lee is one of the most famous islands, and was the backdrop for the 2000 movie The Beach. There was criticism during filming that the permission granted to the film company to physically alter the environment inside Phi Phi Islands National Park was illegal.
