Yacht routes in Thailand

Yacht routes in Thailand are diverse. If you value historical sights, start a yacht tour in the Gulf of Siam, and if you like the picturesque nature go on a cruise on the Andaman Sea. However, remember that the tides are lower in the Indian Ocean, which means that navigation in the Andaman Sea will be easier.

  • Phuket — the island on the Andaman Sea is the best resort for yacht rental in Thailand. Here you will find green hills, coconut groves, rubber plantations and wide beaches. Patong and Kata are among the most popular beaches with active nightlife.
  • Phang nga — Phang Nga Bay is a marine national park. The water here is emerald green, surrounded by sheer cliffs.
  • Koh hong — f group of islands with shallow lagoons and sea eagles circling above the water. There are some caves here that you can visit on a yacht tour.
  • Koh poda — this island with lush palm trees and white sand beaches doesn’t usually have many tourists. Snorkeling is a good activity here which allows you to see the coral reefs.
  • Koh kai — there is a famous cliff which looks like the head of a chicken from the air.

 

Thailand is very popular among tourists country in South-East Asia. Beautiful nature, a combination of traditions and permissiveness, exotic cuisine, and low cost of recreation are just a small part of what attracts tourists to Thailand.

Yachting season and weather in Thailand

Thailand's tropical climate makes the holiday season all year round. In the Andaman Sea (Burma Sea), there are seldom strong winds. The resort areas' average annual temperature is about 22-27 degrees, and the Thailand water temperature is the same. It happens even higher. The peak of the heat is in late spring and early summer. There is no rainy season, but precipitation is quite frequent.

 

Since Thailand stretches on the map from north to south for 1860 km, you should plan your route on a yacht based on the region you want to relax. On the southwestern coast of the country, it is best to relax from November to May. In the west of the Gulf of Thailand — from January to April.

 

From June to October, surfers thrive on the rough Andaman Sea. It's the best time to travel to Thailand and to catch high waves.


It would be best to consider the ebb and flow — it is not a seasonal phenomenon and can change several times a day. The water level difference can be more than two meters check out the Thailand travel guide and be confident in your route plan. Forecast charts of ebb and flow in different regions of the country are available on the Internet.
