Diving at Sail Rock

This site is one of the best diving locations in this part of Thailand. You can access this location after about an hour's worth of boat riding from the mainland. If you are an amateur or a beginner at diving you do not have to worry or be nervous as this location is suitable for divers of all stages. Once you are here keep an eye out for the reef sharks, the barracuda and manta rays. You can visit this place throughout the year but for the best diving conditions and underwater visibility you must try to plan your excursion from the months of April to October.


Try the local cuisine

Though you can wine and dine your nights away in Thailand, the best place to try the authentic meals and dishes would be at the street markets. Make sure you visit one of the night markets while you are on a holiday here and try a steaming bowl of Pad Thai. The night market in this part of Thailand happens every night and you would end up spending just about $5 for dinner and a drink here.



Being a party island, hiking would be the last thing you would think you can get up to here. Just like most parts of Thailand this town also has its shares of amazing hiking and trekking trails. Most of these paths are well maintained, but some of the less explored trails can have unmarked locations so it is better to travel with the local guide or a group of experienced trekkers on your excursion. A good hike would probably take you a total of 3 hours depending on how fast you walk and most of the climbs in the area are pretty easy so you do not have to be much of a fitness freak to complete one.


Explore the fishing villages

If you are curious about the daily life of the natives in the area, exploring the nearby fishing villages would be a great way to spend some time away from the tourist attraction areas.
