Both Similan islands, and Surin Marine National Park are part of Phang-Nga Province and are more than 60 km off the coast. Given that Phang-Nga has no airport, the easiest way to get there is to fly to Phuket Airport then transfer to Thap Lamu Pier for traveling to Similan islands or Ban Nam Khem Pier for traveling to Surin Marine National Park.
