Phi Phi or Phang Nga Day Trip?

Help! Husband and I will have only three days in Phuket during the Christmas holidays and we want to take a day trip to either Phang Nga Bay or Phi Phi. We know both will be busy and it is high season. We are leaning toward Phang Nga for the unusual scenery and because it is a tad closer, but we can be swayed. Is Phi Phi too "overhyped"? We are thinking we may have enough beautiful beach time with two days on Phuket (not staying on Patong). We appreciate Fodorite opinions...and yes...we wish we could stay longer but we are visiting Phuket after Cambodia and just cannot extend the trip

Phang Nga, definitely, no question about it. Unless you take the much more expensive speed boat option, day trips to Phi Phi are done using the ferries, which means a good part of your day trip is used up loading and unloading passengers at Phi Phi.

Phi Phi is pretty, but I don't get why people would go there for a day trip. Phang Nga is the mind blowing unforgeable destination.
