There are also many mangrove-dwelling animals with unique evolutionary characteristics.

Mu Koh Similian National Park
In a area of 50 km of the west coast of Phang-nga in the Andaman Sea, you can find this group of 9 small islands. Because of the great natural beauty found on the islands and because of the extensive surrounding coral gardens beneath the waves it is among one of the loveliest places on Earth. The island also are undeveloped and unspoiled, with a numerous species of fish, crustaceans and other forms of sea-life abound. Water clarity and diving are excellent here.  Similan is corrupted from the Malay Sembilan and means nine.  From north to south in order the islands are : Ko Bon, Ko Ba Ngu, Ko Similan, Ko Pahyoo, Ko Miang (two islands), Ko Pahyan, Ko Payahng  and Ko Hu Yong. 

Mu Koh Surin National Park
This is a group of five islands situated close to the marine boundary between Burma and Thailand in Khuraburi. Because of its distance from the coast it so far has been little visit and it is a protected area. The shallow channel between the two principal islands - about two meters at high tide-has one of the most remarkable panoplies of coral reef life to be found anywhere. Scuba gear is by no means necessary to get a good look at the reefs, a mere snorkel and mask is sufficient. It is making this a perfect destination for those who would like to have the experience of diving but have no time for a scuba course.  Accommodations at the National Park are Spartan, but the modest inconvenience of roughing it will be amply rewarded by the experience supplied.
