From Koh Roi, Titania will move to Koh Hong in Krabi Province. Rock climbers can head to Railay Beach to take on the cliffs (which vary in difficulty), while other guests can tender to Pelay Beach and snorkel in the clear coral waters. Dine on shore at the Six Senses Yao Noi resort in Koh Yao Noi for a farm-to-table gastronomic experience.

A 35nm cruise will take Titania to the sister islands of Ko Rok Nok and Ko Rok Nai, which are separated by a narrow coral channel.

Spend your final day exploring Tarutao National Marine Park. Titania will anchor on one of the five yacht moorings off the island of Koh Adang. It is the perfect spot for an on-shore barbecue, and there’s fantastic snorkelling over a coral garden just off the beach. The next morning she will make her way to Langkawi. Either extend the trip to explore the Butang Archipelago, or depart from the island’s international airport.
