Being surrounded by crystal-clear seas, there are many water activities in Phuket to choose from, ranging from great scuba diving sites to amazing nearby islands. The likes of the Phi Phi and Racha Islands are practically must-sees for those visiting the Pearl of the Andaman.
All tours are widely available and reasonably priced. In our humble opinion, Phuket’s best aquatic attraction possibly is Phang Nga Bay. This famously beautiful area of tiny limestone islets can only be explored by boat, with available options ranging from luxurious speedboats to individual sea kayaks.
We have a list of Phuket tours on the water to let you find unforgettable adventures in and across the Andaman Sea.
Krabi’s myriad of bays and coves have sheltered pirates, merchants, and sea gypsies for thousands of years and archaeological evidence indicates that Krabi was originally inhabited as early as 25,000 - 35,000 years ago.

Not just that, Krabi features some of the most photogenic sunsets in Thailand, often accompanied by spectacular displays of cloud to cloud lightning, that are best enjoyed from a beach-side bar or restaurant.
