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.
Don't ever go on speedboat trips as they overcrowd and ruin beaches.
Liveaboard is a much better way and more friendly to the nature and Similans, but a bit more expensive.
Better to do less but more enjoyable trips. Koh Ngai, Koh Kradan, Koh Mok or other small islands would suit you next time?
The islands are beatiful but if you like to sit in a speedboat with 50 other people for 3 hours in total and thousand other tourist around you on the islands then you should go..... it is a really sad place to go to if you love and respect nature.
