The island is very well-known and famous in Thailand that's the reasons why I want to prove it by myself! We booked the excursion by Wow Andaman company but I believe there have a lot of tour company taking you there. When we reached the island we said Goshhhh!!! There were a lot of ppl on the beach and the... More

We made a snorkeling tour with a speed boat. The islands are really beautiful and the beach remembered me of seychelles. unfortunately we could not visit all islands, therefore the snorkeling experience was limited. We made a stop on two islands. One for relaxing at the beach and the other for lunch. If you are in the region somewhere you... More

Guys I very rarely write negative reviews unless the quality or service has been appalling. However i feel compelled to 'warn' travellers staying in Patong that this is an incredibly stressful and overrated trip. If you are staying in Patong, this is your typical journey: 0630 am pick up in minibus with other tourists 2 hour drive to port (arrive... More

Once you do it from Phuket, very early pick up time, long ride on the boat and huge disappointment on arrival. Overcrowded (mainly Chinese tourists, who shout and split around..), during snorkeling you see rather hundreds of snorkelers than sea life. On the way to the viewpoint count with traffic jam on the walk path, Chinese who take over you... More

Me and my girlfriend were looking for the best diving/snorkeling spots in Thailand, and after hearing that their were on the Andaman sea, we decided to go to the Similan islands. We realized that the bungalows and tents get filled in advance in high season, and we really wanted to take an overnight trip. After calling and asking in a... More

The landscape of Similan is soooooo beautiful. You must try to dive if you visit there. I experienced it and I swear it was such an interesting thing that I would like to do again and again. There are so many beautiful creatures and corals underwater. so beautiful!

My wife and I used the Woow Andaman to visit the Tachai and Similan Islands. Both beautiful places with crystal clear water and amazing views. We were very happy with the service provided by the tour company which delivered great experience. Lots of fun on and off board. Experiences and friendly stuff. Highly recommended.

It was overcrowded!! Although the weather was pretty good for us to snorkeling around the Similan Island on that day, natural beautiful beaches, nice and clean sand & water, but i think is too crowded for the people who like to swimming there, even it is becoming end of the travel season of the national park.

Plus a few FLIES!! The toilets... More

Similand national park ?? I doubt so. This marine reserve is one of the most overfishing area of the world. At night you can observe hundreds of fishing boat contributing to the desertification of the marine life. So what to expect to a reserve if it's not respected as a real one. Poor life, which has been destroyed over the... More
