    Hi - I've been on 2 liveaboard trips with Seadragon to the Similans and can recommend them wholeheartedly. They are a super bunch of people, use good boats and equipment, and have a professional attitude. I haven't been to Poseidon bungalows. There is a small tourist desk virtually opposite Seadragon - near the Nang Thong supermarket. The guy there is very helpful with finding accommodation. I can't remember how far Similana is from Khao Lak but I think it's around 10km to15km. It's north of Khao Lak going towards Takua Pa. When I was there last it wasn't that easy finding buses and Sawng Thaews to get you up and down that road. Nobbe stayed there I believe so he might be able to help you. Where in SE Asia aren't mosquitoes a problem?!!

    similana is about 12 km from khao lak. its a lovely place to stay, accommodation is divine, beach is wonderful and deserted. there is a little shack restaurant just down the beach which serves excellent food. it is the only alternative to the Similana restaurant - or it was when i was there about 2 years ago. it is very isolated at Similana...perfect if thats what you like.
