Thailand | Exotic & Enticing
Taking to the crystal clear waters of Thailand is a wonderful yacht charter destination. Deemed to the superyacht industry as “off the beaten track”, to most travelers Thailand has long been on the map. Long lazy days of sunshine, beaches and amazing food has enticed the western world for well over two decades now, but yet the superyacht world has been slow to follow. This is no bad element though. Expect to find remote anchorages in turquoise waters surrounded by dramatic karsts jutting out of the warm seas, picture perfect white sand beaches and light blue waters lapping against hundreds of islands. Of course, depending on where you go you could find a hedonistic party hard scene too.
On the east coast, the islands scattered around the Gulf of Thailand make for a super itinerary with stops in the touristy Koh Samui and the smaller Koh Phangan. If you carry on up the coast you will reach the bustling capital of Bangkok. Here, marvel at temples, shop in the floating market or try the street food of Kho San Road. On the other side, try the islands of Phi Phi, Lanta and Phuket for high-end resorts and a fantastic party scene. If you are looking for off the beaten track then head down to Krabi and out to the Trang Islands. Here, hundreds of untouched Thai islands await.
This is Thailand before the tourism boom, where you won’t see any chain restaurants, just beach shacks selling their wares. Also, make sure you go for a swim in the sea in the evening to disturb the phosphorescent and marvel at its illuminations under the water.
