Both rooms and tents at the National Park Headquarters. Not a bad restaurant either.
I haven't actually stayed at the Similans apart from overnighting on Poseidons snorkelling trip boat, but both NP accommodation options looked fine to me and having stayed in rooms at both Tarutao and Adang I'm sold on NP accommodation. Not bad value either. Google the NP website for prices etc.
Yeh. National Park accommodation is pretty good and cheap.
In that respect the Similan Islands are no different. You can stay in National Park tents or bungalows quite cheaply. Surin Islands are the same.
is a link to the Similan Islands page on the Thailand National Park website. It should tell you all you need to know.
To keep costs down don't get talked in to doing a package snorkeling trip, just get the transfer and do the rest yourself. Its pretty easy.
Looked at the site.
It appears that there is accommodation on 2 of the islands. Meang & Similan.
Does anyone know.
1) Which has better snorkeling (and access to better snorkeling)
2) Which has the nicer accommodation?
Thanks for any help.
