Living the island life in Koh Phi Phi: 5 things to do

It's exotic location, it's great food, and the fire dancers to entertain you at night will keep you wanting more.

What else can represent the lazy island life but a hammock? And other than having a hammock by the beach, on the shore, having your own private hammock is possible if you stay in Viking Nature Resort. Read a book in the afternoon or cozy up with a loved one for a nap.
