I traveled to Similan islands with 2 of my friends on 1 day tour with 2Sister Company on speedboat. The Islands are one of the beautiful I ever visited in South East Asia. The beach is super and the rocks make the islands very picturesque. However, some beaches felt overcrowded. Furthermore, I was not impressed much with snorkeling, as the... More

If you are in Khao Lak, not afraid of a 1 to 2 day tour on a boat, you are a diving lover... go there, it is worth a visit. Beautiful islands, sea and nice beaches.

During our South East Asia Journey we have seen several islands and beautiful beaches in the Andamanen sea and the gulf of Thailand. The travel time is 2,5h by bus and boat from Phuket, but its worth the long ride. One advantage of the distance to Phuket are less crowded beaches compared to islands close to Phuket, like Koh Phi...

I went to Similan Island to do inspections and it is the best view I've ever seen in my life! Water s crystal clear and the place is so serene. Not too crowded at all! The company provided a really accommodating speed boat and the lunch is YUM! :) If you will go to Phuket, make sure you will visit... More

Lovely islands with perfect white sand beaches. If you like masses of people trying to catch perfect selfies this is your place. If national park means peaceful nature and respectful tourists this is not the place you were looking for. Went there for a one day trip which icluded four stops (three for snorkling) on different islands. We bought our... More

Me and my wife went to our honeymoon In Phuket and got this trip as exchange for Phuket day tour, and thankfully we didn't regret, Above all this trip became the most memorable experience of our entire honeymoon. A long ride on speed boat adds to the charms of this island. Absolute clear blue water like the one we fill... More

The islands and beautiful and the government actually makes sure there is a protected park. We were in love with the different islands and the rudimentary services they provided. The beaches are pristine, but don't be like some un-named tourists and leave rubbish on the beach!!! The water is clear and refreshing, you will feel like you're in a dream... More
