Koh Phi Phi Pier is busy.A long time has passed since the old wooden pier was the main way you would get off the ferries at high tide. The smart new Phi Phi Pier caters to over 10 large ferries from Phuket, Krabi, Ao Nang and Koh Lanta. It is also the staging place to board all the tours to Maya Bay and the other islands, as well as the dive boats and speedboats and longtail boats. It really is a hive of activity.
Find your accommodationAfter you get through the 20 THB ticket process, you are set to find your accommodation. A large number of resorts, hotels and guesthouses meet you before you leave the pier. You can follow your guide who will be standing at the end of the pier with a sign showing the name of the hotels. These guides will often take your luggage in their cart to your accommodation reception. Some of the smaller guesthouses let you carry your bags all the way. (Guesthouses like Coco's have a cart so it is good to check with your budget accommodation.)
Finding accommodation without pre-booking.For those looking to find accommodation when they arrive, there are many touts offering options. If you want to take a calmer approach you might want to walk in 70 meters and speak to the guys at Siam UK Travel and Tours. I recommend this travel agent.
