What people are saying about Southern Thailand and Andaman Coast

Amazing experience and excellent value for money! Was a great to explore the corals and some islands around Koh Lipe! We also got a lunch break and very tasty lunch included! The only downside is that our boat driver didn’t speak English well so we didn’t get any explanations on the corals. Sustainability tip: make sure to get reef safe sunscreen, to protect and preserve this amazing nature! :)
