Thailand is known as the land of smiles and for good reason, the welcome you receive will be just as warm as the sea and sun that makes it a great all year round destination.
The heady mix of cultures is readily apparent from a casual walk in most towns where you will pass a Chinese pagodas, Muslim mosques, and a Buddhist temple all in a short distance. Visitors searching for a unique holiday discovered the kingdom of Thailand long ago but the country still retains a charm and friendliness that is as authentic now as it was then.
Escape from the popular tourist resorts and the country is unspoilt and beautiful with lush green tropical forest that overlap onto pristine beaches. Sail on your luxury yacht through islands that are for the most part uninhabited and rise vertically out of the sea until you find a secluded bay all to yourselves.
If its great cuisine that excites you, the Thai’s will not disappoint, from succulent feasts in famous restaurants to market stalls on street corners the aroma of fabulous food is everywhere. Take a relaxing massage, chill on the white beaches, or explore the countryside the slow way on the back of an elephant, whatever you choose to do Thailand will not disappoint.
Myanmar (formerly Burma) is virtually unknown to the outside world, the Mergui Archipelago, where are yachts are based, is located in Myanmar’s remote south: a group of 800 deserted islands that lie at the heart of our sailing area.
Think white beaches lined with palm trees and dense jungle. Think swimming in azure water amongst colourful reef fish, spotting corals, and collecting seashells. Now, picture eagles circling above, gibbons and monitor lizards eyeing you from the thickets, while a sundowner is being mixed for you on board the yacht.
And best of all: you have this entire experience to yourself. You can sail for days on end and meet not a soul but the odd fisherman in a dugout canoe.
Just across from the Thai border, the archipelago opened to foreigners as recently as the late 1990s. With only a few of the 800 islands sparsely populated and a couple dozen visitors to the entire area each month, the Mergui Archipelago remains one of the planet’s most unspoilt destinations.
