Visit Khao Lak
The small seaside resort of Khao Lak is a popular departure point for live-aboard scuba diving trips out to the Similan Islands, part of a marine park that contains some of the world's most famous dive sites.
The visibility in the water is rarely less than 20 metres, making diving and snorkelling among the rocky drop-offs and long coral reefs an unforgettable experience.
Indigenous Similans sweetlips, octopuses and clown triggerfish are frequently seen, while you might also chance upon morays, leopard sharks, whale sharks, manta rays and turtles.
