    Boat trip to Similan Islands
    An hours boat ride to the Islands. A number of smaller islands, with good snorkelling saw Turtles, variety of fish and some coral and stoppped on lovely white sand beaches. Travelled with Wow Adaman Tours, it was all inclusive with food provided on the day and Thai Style packed lunch, drinks provided all day, they certainly look after you and you never go hungry. Amazing coconut Ice Cream. Would recommend the day trip even the teenagers enjoyed it.

    Beautiful unspoilt location
    What a beautiful place to visit. We travelled by speedboat as part of a large group and visited the Similian Islands. Not sure I'd re-visit as it's one of those places once you've seen you don't need to re-visit due to distance and also it's kind of a tourist attraction. Sand is like flour it's so fine and beautiful and the sea is turquoise blue. Very unspoilt.

    Amazing Islands!
    We stayed at Graceland Khao Lak Beach Resort. We (2) bought the day trip for the Similan Islands from the Love Andaman tour company. The tour company called one day before departure to confirm our reservation and informed us the time to pick us up. The tour van picked us up at our hotel at 7:20 am. The tour company has the office near Thap Lamu Pier. We had our breakfast at our hotel and had breakfast at the Love Andaman office. The tour was well organized. The one way trip the Similan took about one hour and 15 minutes. The tour provided the medication for sea sick. The first island was to climb the Sailboat rock. The climb was about 150 meters or 5 minutes. The views were amazing. The second and third stops were for snorkeling for 30 minutes. The last stop was for lunch and swimming for two hours.

This is the worst travel experience I had in Thailand. Driver comes in late, stops far away from the hotel. The bus is hot and the seats are cramped. You cannot sit comfortably especially when going to Similan Island. Imagine two hours of extremely uncomfortable seating at the beginning of the trip when your trip should start at 6:30 AM.

Walking towards the bus behind the driver ( picture for your view)

2 sisters Tour is definitely not an option when visiting Thailand.

Out of 14 dive sites, 12 were filled with dead corals, and plastic thrash (especially Koh Tachai). You will pass by scores of fishing boats on your way to the dive sites. Very suitable for new divers that don't know any better.

One of the best places we’ve ever visited.

An archipelago off the coast of Khao Lak where turtles come and lay their eggs and whale sharks habit the sea.

A must see for anyone who wants to surround themselves with nature and stunning scenery.

Best place ever…..

I have travelled to many parts of the globe but nothing can compare to this place for snorkelling.
I have never come across such crystal clear water with amazing coral and fish.
Truly a special special place x

Most people want to experience the beauty of nature by vacationing on an island at least once a year if possible. That’s why they look for the most beautiful island, but sometimes dangerous islands not only for health but also for life.
