Island Hopping in Thailand is worth it plus the babes

Island Hopping in Thailand is worth it plus the babes

Travellers to Thailand will witness the manifestation of the island charm; incredible and dramatic scenery, white beaches lined with tropical coconut trees, and a crystal clear turquoise ocean. Yet, the bustling islands offer visitors a taste of something a little different; something exotic that they won't find elsewhere. And those that are less well-known possess a rare whiff of a time gone by when life moved more slowly.

Without question, the best way to explore the delights of the Thai Islands is aboard a Chartered Yacht. Allowing travellers not only to enjoy the journey, but also to island hop at will, Yacht Charters ensure that visitors see the best of what Thailand has to offer.

Charter Yacht Flexibility

The luxury of a Chartered Yacht and the freedom that it affords travellers is unmatched. Cruise ships, often a popular alternative for aspirant seafarers, also provide delightful holidays but with a pre-planned and highly structured itinerary, can prevent spontaneity and will inhibit travellers from seeing lesser known island destinations. The beauty of Yacht Charters is that while it is necessary to have a framework of an itinerary, this is not set in stone, and with the help of the Captain, visitors to Thailand are able to enjoy snorkelling off one pristine island, paddling in the bay of another and sipping cocktails on the beach of a third, all in the same day.

Planning Your Itinerary

It is important to take into consideration some of the activities in which you would like to partake. This will ensure that your destination islands are the best for your activities of choice. Visitors to Thailand usually find many activities to please them and these range from relaxing on the deck of your Charter Yacht with a good book to something a little more active.

Activities on the Islands of Thailand

Work Up a Sweat

Thailand offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy a range of activities that will appeal to everyone, whether you are looking for some outdoor adventure or quiet relaxation. Snorkelling is an ever popular pursuit and with a turquoise ocean, good visibility and outstanding scenery, it is little wonder that Thailand offers some of the most exceptional snorkelling opportunities in the world. Coral Island in particular offers excellent snorkelling.

Those with a love of nature and the outdoors will be fascinated by the ethereal world that exists beneath the surface of the Andaman Sea. Presenting to visitors some of the best dive sites in the world, Thailand is the ideal diving destination, whether you are a beginner needing lessons or a pro looking for some new adventures. Reputedly, the months from December to April are the best to take advantage of Thailand's scuba diving opportunities, and for those looking for some guidance regarding their diving destination, the Phi Phi Islands are a must-see on your diving itinerary. Also world renowned and considered one of the top five dive sites in the world is the Similan Island archipelago - it's a destination that should not be missed!

If you want to get a bit closer to the water, many of the islands offer windsurfing or sea canoeing. For canoeing enthusiasts, an exploration of the Phang Nga Bay should definitely feature, while those wanting to get wet can enjoy a swim from the beach or off the side of their chartered Yacht.

Experience the True Thailand

For the less adventurous, there is also much to please. With a glorious array of beaches, visitors have the opportunity to people-watch on one of the busier island resorts or get away from it all in a secluded cove. If the arts are your thing, then Thailand will fascinate you. Immensely proud of its heritage and history, there are cultural treats around every corner, ensuring that you leave the beautiful islands a little more enchanted than you came.

Thailand is, of course, a haven for shoppers. From handcrafted goods found in market bazaars to designer clothes and accessories straight out of modern air-conditioned malls, the islands offer it all. Sampling the exotic and delectable cuisine is another favourite past-time. But, with so many dynamic fusions and flavours available, it might be a good idea to enjoy some of the more active pursuits in your spare time.

Whatever your activity of choice, chartering a Yacht and exploring the Thai Islands is the ideal way to spend a holiday.
