One of the most beautiful sailing areas in the world
Discover the famous PhangNga Bay from Phuket. Phuket Island is located in the south of Thailand in the Andaman Sea, one of the most beautiful sailing areas in the world, with hundreds of idyllic islands with pristine beaches, crystal waters. The spectacular PhangNga Bay with its amazing limestone rocks became famous because of the James Bond movie: “The Man with The Golden Gun” .
You will be pampered by the crew while discovering unspoilt beauties.
The island of Phuket has long been misunderstood. Firstly, the ‘h’ is silent. Ahem. And secondly, Phuket doesn’t feel like an island at all. It’s so huge (the biggest in Thailand) that you rarely get the sense that you’re surrounded by water, which is probably the reason why Ko (meaning ‘island’) was dropped from its name. Dubbed the ‘pearl of the Andaman’ by marketing execs, this is Thailand’s original flavour of tailor-made fun in the sun.
Patong & Activities
The island’s sin city of Patong is the biggest town and busiest beach. But ultimately, the island’s affinity for luxury far outshines its other stereotypes. Jet-setters come through in droves, getting pummelled during swanky spa sessions and swigging sundowners at one of the many fashion-forward nightspots or on their rented yacht. And you don’t have to be an heiress to tap into Phuket’s trendy to-do list. It is hard to say farewell with deep-sea diving, high-end dining, and white beaches all within reach.
Explore the numerous islands and reefs that are set in this abundant and vibrant crystal blue Indian Ocean.
Snorkel or dive on many of the reefs that Phuket has to offer and discover the many wonders that lie in the underwater world. Scuba diving can be organized on the spot with the local diving clubs.
