Similan island , one of the most prettiest reserved area in Thailand.

Thailand has lot and lot of beautiful beaches and dive spots. That is one of my luck to be born as a Thai person. Check out my top10 beach in Thailand.

Even we have many nice beaches. Each beach still has it own strength. For me if I could get rid of all tourist and be the only group who own the place. That place must be Similan island!

Similan island is famous for being the top10 of the world best dive spot , located in national park area which consist of nine islands , about 31,621 acres. It is in Phang nga province. It would open only from November to April each year. Then it is closed for the rest of the year. If you want to stay overnight. There is only national park accommodations which are basic houses or tent. There is a limited resources on the island. And the foods only sells by national park. So it is quite pure different with other spot which millions of tourists could reach all year round.

From my perspective , the highlight of Similan island is the “Donald duck rock or sailing boat rock” which I am not sure who named it. But this big rock is outstanding on the island number8 , similan. You would notice it once you get on this island. You could just swim around or go up on the top on the rock , chill out , taking photograph or watching some weird people. You would find out that time flies fast on this island No.8. Let’s have a look of activities here :

beautiful beach , white sand , and pretty girls….what else you need? Even it is too crowded in the day time. But when a day tour leave. You could find and inner peace on this island.

Apart from the highlight of big rock. There are still a lot to see and do. If you are a kind of relax people. You could just sit , chill out , sunbath , or swim around if you want to exercise. But if you are energetic kind of person. You could go snorkeling around or dive in a super crystal clear water. Let’s check it out :

This is how we ate it here. Foods only provided by a one day tour or if you stay overnight. There is only national park’s kitchen for your option. The price is quite higher. But I am sure it is still cheap compare to Western countries.
