Phuket and the West Coast of Thailand
Although already well visited by tourists, the west coast of Thailand still has retained a lot of charme for sailing cruises: Plenty of islands, many of them still not much developed, very good diving, tranquil sailing in the Phang Nga Bay, plenty opportunities for island hopping cruises and an exciting night life to top it off.
