Thailand Liveaboard Locations
The famous Similan Islands National Park and Richelieu Rock (part of the Surin Islands National Park) are the most popular destinations for Thailand liveaboards with some trips also covering Hin Daeng and the Phi Phi Islands.
Liveaboards visit 2 main areas among the many islands of Indonesia - Komodo, famous for it's dragons and Raja Ampat which is called the 'Cradle of Biodiversity'. Diving is spectacular, marine life anything from pygmy seahorses to manta rays!
The Mergui Archipelago is largely uninhabited, with hundreds of islands stretching 400km up the West coast of Myanmar. You might not even see another dive boat during your trip - dive Myanmar now before it really opens up to mass tourism!
