When in Thailand phuket most of the day trip diving is done on the east side of phuket. But to the west side in the Andaman ocean we have the amazing similan islands. For most divers doing a Similan islands liveabaord will be on of the best ( if not the best) dive trip you will ever do.
Yes what can we say. You have already been to Phuket Thailand and then got your open water course phuket and now have to think what to do next.
The similans are a chain of nine islands off the west coast that conect to the Surin islands which include divesites like Richelieu rock. this is rated by Nat Geo as one of the top ten dive sites in the world. this chain of islands runs right up into the Burma banks.
This whole area can be done on a similan Thailand liveabaord from an over night trip to a massive eight day adventure into the Burma banks and back. So what better location is there to go after your phuket open water course than into the similan island national park to do your advanced course?
