7 days discovering Thailand on a luxury yacht

1 of 7 1/7

Khao Phing Kan, Thailand
Day 1

Phuket to Koh Roi

Although most of Asia is still a relatively new cruising ground, high-end tourism has been booming in Thailand for well-over ten years now.

Thailand’s Prime Minister is keen to make Phuket a superyacht hub and changes to legislation saw the first foreign-flagged superyacht charter license granted in Thailand last September. The legislative changes are expected to lead to an increase in the number of luxury yacht charters in Thailand and entice more private yachts to visit.

With an abundance of islands, excellent diving, wonderful food and a great winter season climate, it is not hard to imagine this destination taking off soon.

Day 1:Phuket to Koh Roi

Meet at Yacht Haven Marina, just a 15-minute drive from Phuket International Airport. Located in the narrow channels separating Phuket from the mainland, you’ll cruise east towards Phnag Nga Bay past fish farms; coconut, rubber and pineapple plantations too. Despite the sheer-sided islands, the water is very shallow here – less than 5m for most of the bay, so you can easily anchor.

Take to a small tender or kayak and head to Koh Phanak for your first stop. Over the years the limestone has eroded leaving numerous caves on this island each with secret lagoons to discover only at low tide though. After lunch jump back aboard and head north to Khao Phing Kan – better known as ‘James Bond Island’ – it is one of the best Bond locations to visit with a superyacht. End the day at private anchor off the island of Koh Roi. This little island has an easily accessed lagoon and a few small beaches. As darkness falls, you might spot the many fruit bats that roost on nearby Koh Kudu.
