Known as the Land of Smiles, Thailand offers diverse anchorages and wonderful cultural experiences. From the bustling city of Bangkok to the hill tribes found in remote regions, a peaceful, joyful spirit surrounds every aspect of the Thai way of life. Thailand is one of the strongest Buddhist countries in the world, with peace, generosity, tolerance and the search for enlightenment meaning that daily life is approached with happiness, respect and a calm nature.
Thai beaches are world-famous for luxurious sands, the inviting ocean waters and the stunning scenery that frames it all. With thousands of miles of beaches, some offering lively parties at beach bars & restaurants and others remote tranquility, you can enjoy your sailing holiday at your own pace. The climate of Thailand is tropical, with lush foliage and fresh local fruits and vegetables to add to your dining experience.
The traditional lifestyle of Thailand has survived for centuries almost unchanged, a sign of the peace and calmness that many Thai people enjoy, who have always been an independent nation governing themselves.
The large peninsula of Phuket is a popular resort destination in Asia and popular for yacht charters in the sheltered waters of Phang-Nga Bay. Explore an array of attractive beaches and idyllic islands surrounded by the warm turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea. Beaches range from gentle crescents of sand with calm waters to dramatic rocky headlands rising out of the surf with large tidal waters and many rivers flowing into the bay which can make the southern islands a better option for snorkeling.
The sailing area, from Pattaya on Phuket to the Ko Chang Archipelago has more than 200 nm of pristine waters with over 50 tropical islands to explore. Whether you choose a sailing yacht or large motor yacht, you will find that the quiet bays bring many peaceful moments and the traditional Buddhist reverence for all living things and simple pleasures provide a wonderful backdrop to your vacation on a yacht.
Don’t forget to try the delicious seafood, or have some custom silk clothes made (and you won’t believe how special and soothing a Thai massage is!).
Thailand and yacht chartering are a great mix.
