Thailand: The Land of Smiles Welcomes Luxury Yacht Charters
The waters surrounding the beautiful and wildly exotic country of Thailand is emerging as one of the most popular new destinations for luxury yacht charter on the planet, and it’s easy to see why.The Andaman Sea coastline is nothing short of a marine paradise, from the sheer limestone cliffs and fantastic dive spots of Phang Nga to the hectic streets of Phuket’s Patong area and the turquoise emerald sea surrounding the twin islands of Phi Phi.
Next on the itinerary is Rock island, where the coral gables are considered one of the world’s top dive sites. Reef sharks, turtles and, on land, giant monitor lizards are all common sights. The island is a protected national park and its only inhabitants are animals making a trek inland a fascinating experience. Also highly recommended on a luxury boat charter in Thailand is a trip to the Butang group of islands, which remain to this day little-visited. Here, deserted beaches, unspoiled rain forests and the chatter of monkeys are sure to fulfil all your Robinson Crusoe fantasies. Finally, head to the islands of Lipe, Tanga and Muk, for which the phrase ‘off the beaten track’ could have been coined. Located just short of the Malaysian mainland, the islands boast some of the most beautiful beaches in the region and are, quite honestly, as close to heaven on earth you will find.
