hello we will be going by boat from Phuket to Phi Phi in three days been looking on the internet for reasonably priced hotels - bungalows havent had much luck ...we are paying at the moment on Phuket island 500Bhat and are looking to pay about the same there ....if you could please help would be much appreciated ...
It's probably better to just go there and look for accomodation considering it is the low season there. My guess is that the internet tends to only have the more expensive places, and Phi Phi is pretty small and not very developed so many may not advertise via the internet.
If you walk around the town with your backpack (or just get off the boat) you'll probably get people offering accomodation, although the best deal would be finding guest houses, etc. directly and bartering with them.
Another option is to speak to a travel agent in Phuket, which may be a bit like the internet in them only having the more dear places, but some are very helpful and you get the security of knowing you have a place to crash.
