Most tourists visit Similan Islands just for a one day tour or for a scuba diving with liveaboard tour but accommodation is also available on the Island No 4 - a tent camping
and Thai style bungalows.
We visited park twice - on a one day tour and during scuba diving trip with liveaboard.
I booked one day tour with Phuket All Tours. Shuttle bus
picked us up from the hotel in Patong. The journey to the pier took about 2 hours, followed by 90 minutes speedboat trip to Similan Islands. Be prepared for a long and tiring day but don’t worry, the spectacular scenery will reward you generously. All
you need is a comfortable outfit, flip flops, swimwear, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and a towel. Bottled water is available onboard the speedboat and lunch is served on one of the islands. To be honest, there is not much space on the boat - just enough to accommodate
all participants - so make sure you are at the top of the queue and select seats under the canopy.
