Similan Islands are another treasure in the treasure trove, which Phuket has to offer. They are located 84 km northwest of Phuket and are famous for the vast stretches of blue sea.

People who love gliding among the waves, also make this place a must visit in their itinerary as it is also a favourite destination for yachts and tour boats.
Similan is derived from the Malay word Sembilan, which means nine. Every Similan Island has a name as well as a number. Like this, there are nine Islands namely, Koh Ba Ngu, Similan, Payu, Miang, Payan, Payang and Hu Yong. Similan Island tour is never disappointing, as the place has thousands of things to offer.

The place is also the home to some of the most spectacular corals of the world, under the sea. Birds, butterflies, squirrels and reef fishes are found in plenty, which really makes people feel at one with nature.
Similan Islands where to stay is often the most important query among the visitors. This is because there are no proper hotels in the place. The best options are the bungalows or campsites. By staying in these places, one can best enjoy the tropical paradises. Koh Similan, Koh Tachai and Koh Meang are the only Similan Islands which offer accommodation. If one decides to stay in bungalows, one has to do the booking much in advance as there are only 35 of them and are always in high demand.
