Phuket, Thailand

Far from the bustle and chaos of Bangkok, Phuket offers an idyllic island stop-off for superyachts travelling in Southeast Asia. Leaving the turquoise waters behind, head to the heart of the city to indulge in fragrant curries, spicy soups or tasty titbits from street vendors. As the old trading port of Thailand, the local food has been flavoured with the culinary traditions of its neighbouring countries, Malaysia and China.

Speciality dish: There are plenty of flavoursome, savoury dishes that are native to the island, but desserts and sweet treats are particularly popular in Phuket. A local favourite is Bee Go Moi, a packet of sweet and salty black glutinous rice flavoured with coconut milk.

Where to eat: Blue Elephant restaurant, located in the former governor’s mansion, serves typical Thai dishes in a romantic, historic setting. Royal Phuket Marina is 25 minutes away and has berths for yachts up to 35 metres.

How to visit by superyacht: Phuket is one of the best chill-out spots to visit in Thailand, and a blossoming hub for superyachts. Ao Po Grand Marina is well endowed with 300 berths for yachts up to 100 metres. Located in the north, just under Phang Nga is Phuket Yacht Haven, which has berths for yachts up to 110 metres.
