Before we talk about the islands of Similan and Phi Phi, let me give you an overview of Phuket which is a gateway to both islands. About the same size as Singapore, Phuket is Thailand’s second wealthiest province after Bangkok, the capital of the land of smiles! 🙂
I love Phuket more than Bangkok because it has more to offer. Of course, I’m not a shopper to begin with, hence my lack of interest in Bangkok. When it comes to natural attractions, Phuket has a lot to offer, fair pearly white beaches, amazing mind blowing coastlines, gigantic limestone karsts, never mind the beautiful national parks teeming with marine life and rainforest habitat.
