ORIGINS OF THE NAME

Their seems to be half a dozen names for Phe Phe Ley, here is the right way to say it –

เกาะพีพีเล – Goh P P Lay

The word ‘Koh’ – เกาะ – Goh in the Thai language is the equivalent of the word ‘Island’ in English.     พีพี – PE PE doesn’t have a meaning they are just letters of the alphabet in Thai, the English equivalent is = PP.   เล – Lay – in Thai Language means Play, but in this case it root meaning is from the Thai word – ทะเล – Taa lay – meaning = sea

So… Koh Phi Phi Le = P P Lay Island.

 

KOH PHI PHI LE – SIMPLY STUNNING

There is only one way to describe Koh Phi Phi Lay and that is simply stunning! White sandy beaches, rugged towering limestone cliffs, crystal clear waters and magnificent hidden coves sheltered from the outside world.
