Many people come to Phi Phi for two reasons only: to go to Maya Bay during the day, and to party in Tonsai Bay at night. As a result, a large number of bars were constructed, primarily out of concrete, most of which were strong enough to survive the impact from the waves. Once you head down the side streets away from the beach there are mazes of bars and clubs competing in stereo wars, filled with young travelers eager to drink and dance the night away. If you like Khao San Road in Bangkok, you will love Tonsai Bay at night. The most popular of these bars, located near the 7-Eleven in the center of "town," are Tiger Bar and Reggae Bar. Along the path running parallel to the sea there are several popular bars, notably Apache Bar, which has an impressive "katoey" (drag cabaret) show, and farther to the east are fire shows at the popular beach spots Hippies Bar and Carpe Diem.
