Hi there, my daughter and I are travelling to Phuket for a 9 day from this Wednesday. we have been to the usual attractions before, as in phi phi etc, we found them dirty and sad.
We are looking at the similian islands for a day, any recommendations or advise please?
On that note, can anyone recommend , other beaches that are off the beaten track in Phuket, that we could visit please.
Hi there. I'm looking to book to stay at khoa lak in October for my honeymoon. Last year the similan islands opened on 16th of October. Is this the same this year?
I will be visiting south Thailand in two weeks and I heard great things about over-night cruises in similan. On the other hand I read here bad things about day trips to there (crowded boats, bad organization etc...). I have few questions about that:
1.Most important- I will arrive to khao lak only late in the morning/early afternoon (leaving from khao sok in the morning). Is it possible to get to the cruise the same day or does it mean i'll have to wait for the next day? Even if it means missing some divings I preffer not waiting almost a day at khao lak...
2. Does taking a cruise improves the experience of the islands compared to day trips? and is it recommended even if we stay only 1 night on the cruise?
3. What is the usual price for this (1 night with full acommodation and some divings)?
4. Is it important to book ahead or possible at khao lak?
5. And finally is it possible to leave from khao lak and return to phuket (which is our next destination)?
Even if you only have answers to one of the questions I will appreciate it a lot!
I have been looking for a tour to the Similan islands from Phuket for in November, but I unsure which would be the best company to go with. I have also read that an overnight tour would be better, is this true? Can anybody recommend anybody companies good companies for me?
Thanks for you help! :)
