    of course you can, rent a long tail boat from PhiPhi island, not sure about the price.

    Sorry, forget to mention, there're 2 island which all called phi phi island, one is phi phi don,
    one is phi phi leh and Maya bay is located at phi phi leh,you may go by big ferry, long tail boat
    or speed boat, why I recommend package tour is, price should be cheaper than you
    book long tail boat or speed boat, on the other hand, you can visit more places with package
    tour. Long tail boat won't drive you to there from Krabi,it's too far and not safe.....

    from krabi to phiphi takes ard 3 hours. the boatmen probably wouldnt agree to this.

    there's always the ferry though like what singapula said.

    grrr i wish i can go too. T_____T

    Do bear in my mind in monsoon season even though it may not rain but the seas can be rough and even ferries not to mention long tail boats are not very comfortable to sit for the journey there. Had a friend once who is quite used to going to the sea get seasick and vomit due to heavy seas(and it was not even raining!) when he was trying to go to Phi Phi. Eventually the ferry had to turn back. Do check the sea conditions before you go.

    Once again very valuable information
    I had initially wanted to go alone, since Andy din want to go cause it was rather near to the "7th month, Ghost Fest." and that's not too good to be near water during this period.
    Not that I din already know about the monsoon arriving ... but I din take into consideration that the seas would swell
    Looks like I'll be only dreaming about Krabi for now...

    Thanks to everyone that have been so helpful in providing your experiences, you guys - the best

    You do know its the monsoon season right? Bad weather is kinda confirmed to happen.
    Anyway, good luck if you're going. I'm planning for a Christmas Island trip, for the red crab migration during the Nov period, Krabi would most prob be next year's plan...

    I assume you're asking abt the Christmas Island trip I'm planning.
    It'll cost more than a Krabi trip.
    Only till recently, there's a straight flight there from Singapore, AUSTASIA AIRLINES (Using SilkAir A320 Charter)

    Check http://www.christmas.net.au/flights.html for fares.
    and http://www.christmas.net.au/accommodation.html for lodging.

    I still need to do more research and planning first, before I make any plans. So nothing is confirmed yet.

    Erm... Interesting...

    Actually, I just wish to get away from this busy and hectic lifestyle... Want to relax and do something I like... Nature as much as it is, the clear sea, star-gazing, sweet-smelling sea breeze, insect-sounds at night and etc...

    Cost is just a factor to consider... But at least some of my likes have to be there to be considered as a place to visit...

    Christmas Island? Can consider... I will find out more too...

    I guess no matter what, to be caught in the middle of the rainy season is never nice.
