If you are looking for that cruise liner that isn’t filled with hundreds of other passengers, the one you don’t have to see shows, dress for dinner, and can avoid the casino, look no further than the vast and varied waterway of Asia. Visit a captivating destination to the most exotic, and intriguing culture in the world, the southwestern coastline of Thaland. Loaded with a wealth of attractions, including breathtaking beaches with turquiose waters, amazing snorkeling and diving adventures, in addition to limestone landscapes that create a dramatic backdrop from the cruise ship.
You can choose a two week cruise around Thailand’s west coast and enjoy exploring the uninhabited islands in Phang Nga Bay, swim and dive into the waters around Phi Phi islands or take time to visit the Marine National Park situated around the Similan Islands. Relax and spend your days leisurely sunning on the beaches of Surin Islands, then change and venture inland for dinner and the exciting nightlife of Phuket. The most amazing aspect of this cruise is that you can control every minute and fill it with rest and your pace of doing nothing if you want, or have activities filling your day from sun up to sun down.
Some of the sights you can take in are Phuket to Koh Phing Khan, or Koh Panak and Koh Hong, the Phi Phi Islands and all of these within 25 nautical miles of each other. If you want to venture overnight, the Sililan Islands sit about 90 nautical miles out and then you can side trip over to Surin Islands that are only 48 nautical miles on this journey. Everything is close in proximity and stress free for your vacation.
The tropical rainy climate dominates most of Southeast Asia, but the northeast monsoon, from November through April brings soft gentle winds, very calm seas and beautiful sun and dry weather. The restaurants are abundant with great food, and the Royal Yacht Club in Phuket is a hot spot for the seafaring guests. Sip a cocktail as you watch the sunset over the islands or head into a bustling nightlife crowd to dance the night away.
There are some world famous resorts in the Phuket area, if you find the yacht cruise a bit quiet for your taste. With white sand beaches and sparkling water to tempt you at every turn, you might find two weeks is not enough.
