“Thailand number one island is Similan Island!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

I have been to James Bond Island, Phi Phi Island, Coral Island, Bamboo Island, Khai Island and many more in Thailand but SImilan Island is the best of all. It took me 3 hours in speed boat to get there as the island is located in the middle of the ocean far away from Thailand mainland. The water there is extremely transparent, clear and clean. The green turtle will swim towards you and not the other way round. The best part of the tour to this island is the 100 feet climb up to the Rock at the hill of one of the islands and watch the entire ocean of blue paradise. It was an amazing feeling and I am proud of my country, Thailand for having such a wonderful mother nature island for the world to see. For any snorkeling and scuba sport fans, this is an island you should not miss!

“Blue, Blue, Crystal clear blue water and fine white sandy beaches”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We book the Similan Island tour from one of the tour operator in Khao Lak and we were given a special price discount @ 1800B per person.

We were picked up from our hotel at 7.00am and transfer to the Tap Lamu Pier by minibus.
We were then dropped off at the Similan Pro Dive shop; where tea, coffee & light snacks were served.

We then departed Tap Lamu pier and our first stop was at Ba Ngu Islands (island No 9) for snorkeling; then we move onto the beach of Similan Island (island No 8) then again for snorkeling on Payu Island (Island No 7).
We then had a lunch stop at Miang Island (island No 4) in which we had to do a short trek to the other side of the island where a Buffett line was waiting; then it was free and easy; till they transferred us back to Tap Lamu pier, where the minibus was ready to get us back to Khao Lak.

Overall: it was a beautiful day on the beautiful Islands of Similan!
This has to be one of the highlights of our week stay in Khao Lak.

TIPS:
- Sunscreen is essential as you will almost certainly get burned without it.
- Bring your camera and probably another battery as you will be taking plenty of pictures.

“Something different and beautiful off the coast”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Beautiful islands off the coast of Khao Lak. Cost of daytrip quite high, but is worth it if you take into consideration that you 're visiting 4 islands with nice beaches and even nicer sea bed full of sea turtles and multi-coloured fish!

“DO NOT GO WITH Fantastic Similan Travel!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Beautiful islands but THE WORST TOUR WE HAVE EVER BEEN ON! Do not go with this company, rude tour guides, long waits, crowded speed boats, overall not worth the headache.

Would definitely recommend visiting these islands but not with this company.

“snorkling and sea turtles”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Booked through the rep but was well worth the 2800 Bath. Saw plenty of fish and even sea turtles. The trip staff are excellent. Very helpful and funny. All food and drink was provided all day. Recommend
