Raya Island deep diving depth is approximately around 6-8 meters, which is certainly not very deep, but on diving down right away one can see a lot of coral reefs. Generally speaking, the first time you dive, even if you have had half a day of training, the maximum permitted diving depth is 12 meters. If you have tested for and past the beginner OW diving certificate, the permitted diving depth is 18 meters. The difficult of this is really not great, and the most important thing really is overcoming one’s own psychological stress as well as adapting to increasing depth, and the pressure from additional water.
Diving is an extremely interesting activity, and after trying it once, one will definitely love this activity, and will also have the joy of exploring the boundless sea. Of course, a gloomy environment will bring many pressures, and many people strongly dislike this kind of environment. However on Ban Raya Island, diving is something you absolutely don’t have to worry about, since you will always have a coach to accompany you.
The emperor island is 12 kilometers south of Phuket, and the speedboat takes about 30-40 minutes. As a popular island in Phuket, it is much better than the PP island of tourists, whether it is from the clear water. Its the same as the cleanliness of the beach. The most important thing is that there are fewer people. Compared with the noisy Phuket, the beach environment is exceptionally quiet. There are only sporadic swimmers, surfers, and waves from the ears. It is a beautiful scene of Xiawai Taoyuan. The Racha Resort on the island has a total of 75 luxury villas, each with its own private courtyard and airy outdoor bathroom, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful ocean of the Indian Ocean without leaving your home.
To experience the laid-back life of a tropical island, the Emperor Island is a particularly good choice. This small island is much more primitive than Phuket, not far from it, and the coastal scenery of the island's coral reefs is unforgettable. Be sure to stay in this small island for a few days. When the large number of tourists leave in the evening, the beach is exceptionally quiet. Only the people who have returned from the swimming and surfing are walking across the beach, sitting on the shore and waiting for the sunset, it is a paradise!
I came to Phuket this time to book a trip to a private travel agency with my friends. I went to the emperor island~
compared to other popular or less popular attractions in Phuket, the emperor island is A very new face. The island not only has a beautiful and complete natural tropical island scenery, but the coastal scenery of the coral reefs is equally memorable. Due to the late development, the number of tourists here is relatively small. Compared with the noisy Phuket, the beach environment is exceptionally quiet. There are only sporadic swimmers, surfers and waves from the ear. It is a paradise!
The emperor island is on the south side of Phuket, 12 kilometers apart, and the speedboat takes about 30-40 minutes.
“Racha” means “emperor” in the local language. Originally an exclusive holiday island of the Thai royal family, it was later opened to the public. There are 5 small beaches on Racha Yai Island: Ter Bay and Lha Bay to the east, Kon Kare Bay to the southeast, Patok Bay to the west and Siam Bay to the north. This is a good place for snorkeling. The water temperature is just right and the waves are relatively small. The beach line is quite long. The fish seen in different snorkeling places on the island are different too. Compared to the boisterousness of Phuket, the environment here is exceptionally quiet.
