Phuket is known as "The Pearl of the Andaman" for its natural beauty. Thailand is known as "The Land of Smiles" for its warm and friendly people. This island paradise lies only 8 degrees north of the equator and enjoys a tropical climate year round. For divers, the true treasures of the Andaman Sea are found at famous sites such as the Similan Islands, Phi Phi Islands, Richelieu Rock, Hin Daeng, Koh Raja and Shark Point, where the warm, clear water draws large schools of tropical fish, manta rays, and the awe-inspiring whale shark. The wealth of aquatic life will delight underwater photographers and marine naturalists when scuba diving Thailand.
