  1. Similan Islands:

Just 90 minutes by speedboat off the coast of Phang-Nga, or eight or more hours by slow boat from Phuket, visitors can indulge themselves in another paradise place in Thailand: Similan Islands. The area is mostly undeveloped so everything here is close to Mother Earth. The waters surrounding the Similan contain colorful coral, and offer exceptional underwater visibility. If you want to dive in pure water, this is an ideal recommendation for you. Since the surroundings are naturally and off limits from human action, for those who love taking pictures, the landscape here would fully meet your demand.

  1. Floating Markets

You should bring your camera along because these markets are often very colorful: colors mainly from fruits, and from souvenirs. Tourists usually get deeply attracted to the hustle and bustle from life beat hereby.
