Where better place to stay before and after your Similan Islands Liveaboard with MV Oktavia?
There are so many great reasons to join MV Oktavia for a 5 Days/5 Nights Similan Islands Liveaboard. But in addition to the incredible diving, our awesome Staff and Crew, and the stunning Similan Islands themselves – the chance to stay a few days in our beautiful town of Khao Lak must surely be the cherry on cake!
A gentler alternative to Phuket
With it’s International Airport and famous towns and beaches of Patong, Karon, and Kata, Phuket is the obvious first choice for many holiday makers when travelling to the southern provinces of Thailand. But these places can be a little busy and maybe not quite the ‘taste of Thailand’ many are expecting from their long journey east. Whilst offering a great variety of attractions, shopping and food, those who seek a slower, more local, way of life need look no further than an hour north of Thailand’s largest island.
With it’s incredible uncrowded beaches, lush green forest, cooling waterfalls, and so many great places to eat and drink, it really is the perfect place to enjoy your precious days before and after your Similan Islands Liveaboard us at Oktavia Dive Center.
Khao Lak acts as the gateway to the Similan Islands and so you can also benefit from the short journey time from your hotel/resort to the pier at Tab Lamu. There really is no need to waste even more of you r holiday time sat in a minivan on departure & return day travelling the 2hrs north to meet our boat. A free of charge 15-20 minute ride south from your hotel reception area is all that’s required to board MV Oktavia and set sail into the sunset for the first night of your Similan Liveaboard.
