About yacht charter in Thailand:

Thailand is certainly one of the more popular yacht charter destinations in the South East Asia and the Indian Ocean. Most of the yacht charters are organised in Phuket in the Andaman Sea.  This wonderful nature park is full of pristine sandy beaches, clear sea waters, numerous islands and lovely rain forests.  Some yachts are also available in Kho Samui and the best itinerary recommendation is certainly one way charter to or from Langkawi in Malaysia.  A typical itinerary will include Mergui Archipelago, Andaman Islands, Phi Phi island, numerous bays of the neighbouring Phang Nga Bay and in some cases even the Similans.  Swimming, Diving, snorkelling, fantastic dining and relaxing is likely to be on the programme every day.  Apart from the magical Phang Nga Bay you would also not want to miss out on the stunning Koh Hong archipelago with many private beaches and panoramic views, Koh Poda and Koh Kai where low tide allows you to walk from one to the other island, and one of the three most beautiful islands in the world, the Koh Pee-Pee with lovely Maya Bay beach and numerous other stunningly beautiful locations such as Krabi Island.  For full details, a specific itinerary and your own personalised yacht charter quote, please enquire.

Best time to hire a sailing or power boat:
In terms of climate, one should avoid months from June to October as it is the time of South West Monsoon with humid and rainy conditions. If you are knowledgable with tides (up to 3.5m swells) and can cope with lots of rain and winds up to 30kn, all adding up to difficult sailing conditions, than you can make serious savings on regular yacht charter rates.
You should plan to sail between October and May, maybe avoiding the very expensive period around the New Year.  This is the time of North East monsoon which provides for dry and sunny conditions with NE winds of between 5-20kn occuring daily. 

Other useful info for yacht charter guests:
- There are no major VISA requirements for stay under 30 days (please check with your Embassy!)
- Longer stays may require you to apply for a suitable VISA at a local Thai Embassy
- Currency is THAI BAHT which is usually around 40 to 1 Eur or 30 to 1 with US$'s.
- Credit Cards are only accepted in big establishments, ATM's only on mainland, rarely if at all on islands

Customs:
A country with very friendly people.  Avoid any drug use even if permitted in your own country
Main religion is Buddhism with Islam being mainly practiced in the Southern regions of the country
Decent clothes are required in smaller villages and making friends with locals can increase your experience during holidays.

Health:
Please ensure you check with your GP or personal doctor if you require any vaccination before booking your yacht charter holiday.  Dinghy fever is known to exist in the country and jungle excursions are only to be taken in an organised manner due to dangerous spiders, scorpions and snakes.  TAP WATER should NOT BE USED for drinking.  If you are sensitive about food and spicy is not your cup of tea, prepare in advance for your own diet. The food is otherwise healthy and recommendable.
