Pearl of the Andaman
Known as the Pearl of the Andaman, Phuket, roughly the same size as Singapore Island, is a major tourist attraction of Thailand for divers and non-divers alike. The surrounding waters contain a wide variety of marine life and is a very well established dive destination. Most of the diving done in Phuket takes place in the islands south of Phuket such as Racha Yai, Racha Noi, Koh Doc Mai, and the Phi Phi Islands.
