Stay for a drink and spend the whole night out
Nightlife on Koh Phi Phi can be wild! Although lacking in the full moon madness of some of Thailand’s other isles, Koh Phi Phi nightlife is a must for those who are traveling with the party circuit. One good thing about this island is that it’s pretty small. Party-goers can likely hit up every bar on Phi Phi if they want. They will experience a variety of nightlife scenes.
The obvious place to start when looking for the best nightlife on Koh Phi Phi is the beach. With an iconic party strip lined with bars, Koh Phi Phi’s Loh Dalum bay is the place to be if you’re looking to party. This is where you’ll find the backpacker scene. Expect party hostels, loud music and a lot of shenanigans. Bars on this part of Phi Phi compete with each other for the best, loudest music and most buckets served. The usual demographic here are millenials. However, you’ll see people from all walks of life joining the party, or even doing the limbo!
But because not everyone is looking to get wild on the water, there is another side to Phi Phi’s nightlife. Bars on Phi Phi Don’s interior feature an eclectic mix of entertainment. From Krabi’s signature acoustic jams to packed sports pubs, Phi Phi’s nightlife has pretty much got it all. Raging nightclubs mimic the beach parties to draw in crowds on rainy nights. Resto-bars and chic pool halls line the sandy pathways. In fact, Phi Phi is such a popular destination that you’re not likely to see an empty bar on the island, especially during the high season.
Because the island is small enough, you could easily do a tour of Phi Phi’s nightlife just by walking around.
