The similan islands are beautiful to see but don't take Similan pro dive as your organization. You cant find them on tripadvisor but many travel agencies use them, like greenwoodtravel. The boots are overful and the staff is too busy with playing around and did not help anyone with snorkeling ... A woman almost drown untill others (not staff) helped... More

I am not a beach person, but this island is probably the most incredible place I have ever been. The amazing soft white sand, crystal clear water, and awesome hike up to Surf Rock to take in some of the most breath-taking views I've ever seen in my life, completely make this trip worth it. After snorkling, we hiked up... More

This is really great and beautifull island whithout citizens, but you should know when to visit this place. During a day it is crowded with too many tourist, so the best time to visit it is to do it just before sunset. It is possible only during dive break, when you are on boat. Here is some nice movies from... More

Past weekend finally had a chance to visit that place and that was amazing. The trip started and Phuket and took around 2 hours to get to the mainland and later come to the boat station. We went by a speed boat to Similan Islands. On that day the waves were quite small but still some people got sick because... More

We took the day trip to Similan Islands with Wow Andaman and had the most wonderful day. The company is outstanding: the boat, the staff, the snorkelling, the food, the equipment and attention to detail are all exemplary. If you don't do any other trip, do this one, it's worth every baht!

We were really looking forward to this trip as my husband and I are avid snorkelers and prefer not to go on all the really touristy places, so this looked perfect. Crystal clear water, white sand... but the first island they took us to was all dead coral and just some fish... we then went to the next island and... More

We booked 1 day tour from Two Sisters Company. They have a new boat and good service+tour guide. The price was about 3500 Baht per person including lunch and hotel transfer+4 islands. There were people who kept throwing out during all the trip. If you are the person who can't stand speed boats - take medicine! Otherwise, you will enjoy... More

Similan Islands are by far the most beautiful islands in Thailand for me. Gorgeous white beaches and sky blue water... We came on the boat tour to the Similan islands, had plenty of time to chill on the island, enjoy the scenery or just lay on the beach. We also found out that there is an opportunity to stay for...

We did an island hopping and paid close to THB4000 for 1 person to Similan island - only opens up 6 months in a year. The whole experience wasn't that fantastic as the traveling time took 2hrs to the jetty up North of Phuket and 1hr by boat to reach one of the 11 islands (though Similan means "9"). A... More
