Add Tonsai Village to your list of places to see when visiting Krabi, Thailand

When visiting Krabi, Thailand, you should definitely add Tonsai Village to your list of places to see. Tonsai is on an isthmus, with Loh Dalum to the north and Tonsai Bay to the south. As a popular island that is part of the Phi Phi Islands, it is a place without cars and roads. People get around by walking on a complex of footpaths.

Some describe Tonsai Village as bohemian, mainly because it is so different from the rest of the Phi Phi Islands. Here the only traffic you’ll see are pedestrians and bicycle riders. It’s an exciting and bustling little place, with a lot of comings and goings. Daytime on the island is busy with tourists shopping and doing touristy things, and nighttime is busy, with visitors shopping, dining, and barhopping.

Shopping in Tonsai Village

Tourists love Tonsai Village for its selection of jewelry, sarongs, T-shirts, hats, beach shoes, beach paraphernalia, and sundries. Because all of the items come from the mainland, they cost more; however, don’t be shy about bargaining.

Tonsai Bay

Tonsai Village and the Bay are very busy during the day. When the last ferry leaves at around 2:00 or 2:30 p.m., the streets clear out and the beaches are almost empty. That’s the time you can enjoy the area the most.

One place that is off the beaten track is Ton Sai Beach. You can reach it via a path from the village. At the end of the beach are several bamboo bungalows for rent, which are perfect if you intend to rock climb. These lodgings are located close the base of the cliff face. Make sure you bring food and water with you, as there are no shops or vendors along the way.

Tonsai Village Nightlife

Whether you like to party at night or just sit back with your favorite beverage, you can find the right place in Tonsai Village. Many places stay open late, and it’s no secret that some people can’t find their way back to their lodgings. That said, there is some great music and restaurants to add to the mix.
