Snorkelling and diving are common pursuits in the waters around the island. Some of the best dive sites are located near Chalong Bay with mesmerising soft corals and colourful fish happily swimming to delight enthusiasts. Racha Yai is another popular site with traversing reefs and solid coral forests. Also contemplate exploring the marine wonderland around the limestone island of Ko Doc Mai where leopard sharks, moray eels and turtles call home.
Snorkelling is popular from the island Phi Phi. A day trip across to the island is popular with many agencies selling all-inclusive trips. A variety of boats make the trip across, if you prefer a more intimate excursion ensure you clarify the amount of people on the boat prior to booking.
For a different Thai experience, journey up to the capital Bangkok, for its relentless energy.
