Getting To Phi Phi
You can also travel by plane (or bus) from Bangkok to Phuket and in Phuket you can travel by boat or high speed ferry to Koh Phi Phi. Phuket is also an interesting place in southern Thailand. Phuket is about 40 km east of Koh Phi Phi and travel by boat takes about 1,5-3,5 hours, depends on the type of boat/ferry.
Phi Phi is a small island, 30 to 40 kilometers from the nearest large body of land. There was a short-lived sea plane service from Phuket, but it died a rather costly death a few years ago. So, the only way to get to Phi Phi is by boat. There is regular ferry service from Phuket, Ao Nang and Koh Lanta.
Note: no matter where you make the trip to Phi Phi from, there's a 20 Baht (0.52 USD) 'arrival tax' to be paid on the pier after disembarking the ferry.
Middle-deck interior on the Phi Phi Cruiser
From Phuket, most regular ferries leave from the Rasada pier an take about 90 minutes to reach Phi Phi. There are three or four different ferry companies operating on the route. Generally, there's a mass departure of all the ferries at 8:30 am and a second departure sometime in the afternoon. I found the Phi Phi Cruiser, pictured above, to be quite comfortable and well maintained. Regardless of which company you choose, you'll most likely pay the same fare, which is 600 Baht (15.58 USD). The fare from Phuket usually includes pick-up from your hotel. You can, in fact, purchase ferry tickets from most hotels on Phuket, and if yours doesn't sell them, there's probably a tour agent within a few steps of your hotel that does.
Ferries leave Phi Phi for Phuket at 11:30 and 15:30.
Speed boats can make the trip slightly faster than the ferries, but of course will cost you much more. Speed boats will only operate in daylight hours, so they generally will not leave Phuket after 4:30 pm.
From Ao Nang: Ferries depart daily at 8:30 am and leave Phi Phi for the return trip at 15:30. These ferries stop in Railay as well. The one-way fare is 450 Baht (11.69 USD) and the trip takes about 90 minutes.
From Krabi Town: There are usually three departures daily from Krabi Town, at 9:30, 14:30 and 15:30. Return trips from Phi Phi leave at 9:00, 10:30 and 14:00. The one-way fare is 400 Baht (10.39 USD) and the trip takes about 90 minutes.
From Koh Lanta: Ferries depart the pier in Saladan daily at 8:00 and 13:00 daily, and return from Phi Phi to Lanta at 11:30 and 15:30. The journey takes just around an hour and costs 400 Baht (10.39 USD).
Chris made the learning experience such a breeze, drawing from his experiences in practice and academics. The month-long course could be replicated anywhere in the world and it would be just as effective. Such a thrill to meet such an approachable and kind soul dedicated to the teaching of yoga.

The Online 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training from Karma Yoga is impressively informative I have always wanted to take a Yoga teacher training and the open accessibility of this course, as well as the self-paced study has been an asset to my learning. Chris has been a source of support and integration throughout the course and has been more than generous with his time. The format of the course is easy to follow and intuitive for a deep integration of the yogic knowledge. Having practiced Yoga for years prior to this course I found both familiar and novel elements to the learning which helped me feel both confident and engaged. I am grateful to have experienced this course and would not hesitate to recommend this course to my friends and family.

YTT200 with Karma Yoga was such a wonderful experience. The small class size really allowed us to get to know each other and grow together. I loved learning about the philosophy of yoga, and really appreciated the in-depth review of the asanas. Being allowed to teach a practice class was a great precursor to teaching our final certification class. Chris was thorough with his reviews, and made the entire process enjoyable. His business background is also a great asset to aspiring yoga teachers. It was a great experience, and I’d do it again! Thanks Karma Yoga and Chris.
Madhu, Mar 2019
I applied for the 200 hour YTT online training after a terrible loss in my life. I looked at many different training options and this one was the best fit. I needed a program that was flexible and would give me the opportunity to heal and grow in my own time and space. Chris was supportive from start to finish. Not only did he answer my questions promptly, but he showed real compassion and empathy for my situation. I love that the program is set out very simply, allowing me time to amalgamate my learning and apply it to my yoga practice when I was ready to. I would recommend the online training for anyone with a busy lifestyle or if you like to learn at your own pace. It was a wonderful healing experience and I am grateful for all the help and guidance I received along the way.

I really enjoyed taking the online 200 hour yoga teacher training with Karma yoga. For me, it was all about flexibility and knowledge. I really liked the layout of the course in a sense that it was very simple to follow. The chapters were organized with the topics and the videos were also very interesting to watch. It was nice to go back and forth between a couple of books to get a different sense of writings and learn in various ways. I really enjoyed how I could manage my time with my busy life and literally work on my assignments/readings at any time of the day. The practice quiz was a HUGE help in knowing which areas I needed to work on more to prepare for the final exam. Chris was fantastic and quick in responding to my questions and his feedbacks throughout the program helped me in completing the course successfully.

This course helped me understand what yoga is and found theory was very interesting. Loved meeting great people. I also liked understanding how to perform poses safely to avoid injury. I also liked learning breathing exercises as well as our meditation performed on the first day of class. I appreciate Chris who was caring about my personal problems as well and guided me with his advice. I like how the course is short and easy. This is a great course if you are not that knowledgeable about yoga.

It was an incredible YTT program. I truly enjoyed it! It helped me to deepen my knowledge of yoga and strengthen my interest in yoga. It really provided me the platform to personalize the facets of yoga. I learnt that yoga is the springboard to an integrated life: a healthy, happy and holy life. Chris has a deep knowledge about human anatomy. His competency as a yoga instructor was very explicit in the way he synthesized yoga Asanas giving paramount importance to anatomy. His insistence on proper sequencing of Asanas alerted us to avoid injuries. His personal attention to every student and timely corrections demonstrated his skills as a yoga master. I liked his wit and wisdom. He was awesome!
Thomas, Sept 2018
Karma Yoga YTT was a great experience. From the history of yoga to the philosophies, and the great people who introduced yoga to the western world. We all learned the proper sequencing of asanas to flow into the next. Chris was a great instructor for this teacher training and kept us all focused while having fun. I look forward to the next YTT! Thank you Chris!
