This revised convenient reference book is a must-have if you're planning a visit to the Similan Islands and surrounding areas. There are also lots of colourful dive site diagrams, descriptions of area dive characteristics, and summaries of practical information you'll need to know before you go.

"In the midst of Indian Ocean, to the west of Thailand's Phang-Nga province, lies Similan Marine National Park. This group of islands is considered to be one of the top dive destinations in the world, mainly due to the wonders that wait beneath the clear blue waters that surround the islands.

The name Similan was derived from the Malaysian word for number nine, “Sembelan” as this little archipelago is made up of nine islands. Although the islands have local names, they are usually referred to by their respective numbers from south to north.

The nine islands offer a myriad of experiences, activities and breathtaking views to all visitors, ranging from striking white beaches to scattered magnificent boulders. However, the most outstanding scenes are found under the waves, including spectacular coral growth and diverse marine life, making the islands the ideal playground for all divers."
