My daughter and I were so excited about sharing this experience on her birthday but couldn’t quite believe how massively overcrowded it was, from the en masse speed boats journey out there to a ruined set of islands due to mass tourism. I have never seen so many boats or people in one place. Numbers should be limited to preserve the sea life which was beautiful but could be amazing. We saw one turtle because we moved away from the heaving mass of people bobbing up and down in the water with their life jackets on. We opted for snorkels and flippers otherwise why would you want to go there specifically. You can mindlessly bob up and down in the water almost anywhere. A Russian guide we met said the place had been so spoilt by the hundreds and hundreds of people visiting every day and that only a few years earlier, you would have been able to sight many turtles and other beautiful sea life. Humans once more ruining our beautiful planet.

The best beach we encountered in southern Thailand while we were there. Great sand, great water, great snorkelling - very very relaxing spot to be. It go quite busy with tourist boats - but don't let that stop you. Try to find a tour that gives you more than one hour here. you need four hours minimum or the whole day to enjoy this beach.

A lady we met at Tiger Park Phuket arranged this trip for us, Nheung. The price was almost half of what the resort were charging and it was an enjoyable day. Seating on a speed boat with breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea included with all transfers from hotel included

The Similan Islands is a group of islands in the Andaman Sea and part of, Phang Nga Province. It is a national park, Mu Ko Similan, which was established in 1982. Similan Islands are located just 84 km northwest of the Phuket. Koh Similan is one of the best-known island groups in the Andaman Sea, mainly because of very interesting and adventurous things and breathtaking sceneries that exists in the zone. This stunning archipelago is accessible from south of Khao Lak in Phang Nga and it takes about 70 minutes to get there by speedboat. The national park is closed during the rainy season (May to October) in order to prevent environmental destruction and wildlife protection. Firstly there were 9 islands in Similan islands group but 2 islands were added later to the National Park. Each island has a name and a number. The largest island of the park is the island number "8" which is called "Ko Similan". This island is very interesting and it has a very amazing panoramic viewpoint at top. Going there is not easy because you have to pass the way through rocks and stones on bare foot. It's better to beach slippers with you because shoes are not allowed in the islands. It was my second time in this National Park, and this time it was very crowded and noisy and untidy, maybe because of high season. I went there with a tour and everything like swimming, walking, taking photo, eating lunch, going to toilet were difficult. The only thing that was still interesting, was "going up" the hills and rocks and getting to the summit. In this place you would find a peaceful panoramic viewpoint and it's really worthy of hiking. There's a breathtaking viewpoint in island No. "8" and there's another spectacular viewpoint in island No. "4" (Ko Miang). We get off in "Ko Miang" for lunch, but after lunch we went to the viewpoint (Larn Kha Laung View point) very quickly and we got there in 25 minutes. Totally Similan National Park is really amazing and wonderful but I don’t recommend it in peak days.

Guys please don't book the tour with this guys they are cheap quality and useless people, no service provided. Staff was smoking on boat and don't even know english. They don't provide any option for vegetarian people.Useless people. I would once again suggest please do not book with this people they are only money minded and you won't get a good experience at all. I won't even give one star to them as well.
