Diving in Thailand

Date : January 11, 2009

As the first part of my one month trip to SE Asia I picked Thailand. I visited the Phi Phi Islands, Phuket and some surrounding islands. My main goal were Similian islands which are one of the best possible locations for diving worldwide. I reserved a 4 day liveaboard trip to Similian islands and I must say I will definitely repeat this again some day. Scenery at Similian islands is just amazing. Islands are some 150km off the coast of Phuket island. The visibility was around 20-30m and the water temperature 29°C at the top and 27°C at 40m. I have never taken underwater photos before so this was my first time. I used IXUS 860IS and housing for it.
