      Similan Islands - what to do and how to get there?

      by travelinchen Online Now Jan 22, 2011 at 2:05 PM


      I think I'd really would like to go to the Similan islands from what I see on the pictures (I assume it's quiet and relaxed and not too many tourists in the beginning of March). But all I read about on the web is how great it is for diving.
      Now, since my partner doesn't dive, we probably both will do only snorkeling. So I was wondering whether snorkeling is actually worth on the Similan Islands or whether this is a rather expensive trip for only snorkeling.

      Also, to keep things as cheap as possible, we would want to stay in the terrace house on one of the islands for three days or so.

      But I couldn't exactly find out how we would get there (we'd be in Chiang Mi just before, so we would be ready to fly to Phuket)? Can anyone tell us the cheapest (while being perfectly safe) way to get there? And the easiest? ;-) Though we obviously don't want to do the liveaboard thing.

      Also, can anyone tell me difference between a zone 3 and zone 2 room?

      Thanks so much!

    • Bungalows on Ko Miang

      by eoa106 Online Now Nov 23, 2006 at 5:24 PM

      Hi there,

      I am going to stay a few days on Ko Miang in one of the bungalows there. They seem to be numbered from 1 to 20, all with the same price but varying view. When I book I have to specify the particular number of the bungalow I want to book, but I have no idea which one has the best views.

      I've read elsewhere that there's one or two bungalows with great views, but no number was given. Will anyone on here be able to help me with this? What number bungalow has the best views?
