7 Day Thailand Charter Itinerary - Koh Panyee to Phuket
Ideal for Winter Season
Cruising through the stunning islands surrounding Thailand you will encounter seamless coastlines, uninhabited islands, and sites of pure tranquility. Visiting the many islands of paradise you will get a taste of the authentic Thailand lifestyle as well as experiencing an exotic escape. Enjoying a new destination each day, your charter experience can show you some of the best sites around southern Thailand.
- Day 1
James Bond Island And Koh Panyee
Start of your Thailand adventure by chartering through the pristine waters towards James Bond Island. Aptly named for being featured in the James Bond movie, ‘The Man With The Golden Gun’, this island sees a lot of tourism from fans of the franchise. Despite the amount of interest it attracts, if you visit early in the morning or later on in the day you can have the place to yourself.
The vertical rock, Ko Tapu, translates its name into nail or spike island, an accurate name for the rock which stands solitary in the midst of the bay. After taking in the sights of this monument, raise your anchor and cruise to your next port of call, Koh Panyee.
Built on stilts, this fishing village will be a highlight of your Thailand adventure. This famous village is home to around 1,500 people and is home to some lovely handicraft stores and small cafes. Serving freshly caught fish and other local delicacies, this will be the ideal place to try some traditional food and enjoy the views before setting off towards Phang Nga Bay, where you will anchor down for the night.
- Day 2
Phang Nga Bay
Your second day on the water is a day to take your time and explore at your own leisure. Within Phang Nga Bay there are hundreds of small islands for you to visit and create some magical memories. Search every nook and cranny to find some beautiful caves and areas of pure tranquillity.
Take a break on board your yacht before taking the plunge under the cool waters to explore the rest of this hardly touched landscape. The scenery below the water's surface is just as beautiful as the land above, so make sure you take the time to fully appreciate the beauty you are surrounded by. Before leaving the area to your next destination, make sure you take a slow cruise past Khao Khien to witness some ancient paintings of animals and boats on the rock face.
- Day 3
Ao Nang Bay
Leaving the peace and tranquillity behind, the bay of Ao Nang brings you back to civilization and excitement. Lining the shores of the bay are many resorts, shops, and restaurants with your name on. There's so much to see you'll be spoilt for choice.
Take some time to relax on the beach before heading to one of the many restaurants for some locally sourced lunch. Have some refreshments while overlooking the staggering view of the bay before visiting some of the local attractions. Make your day last longer by slipping into your evening wear and heading to one of the legendary nightclubs. Dance till you drop, then head back to your yacht for some well earned rest, ready for your next day of exploring.
- Day 4
Escape from the land of the living for another day as you disappear into the enclave of 70 small islands surrounding Koh Lanta. The abundance of pristine white sandy beaches are sure to leave you feeling like you have gone to paradise. With coral displays dotted around the nearby waters, there are relaxing scenes for you to enjoy both above and below the water's surface.
After meeting the exquisite and exciting collection of local marine life, sink your toes into the luxurious white sands and take some time out to see some of the lush, green rainforests. Home to some spectacular wildlife, a walk through the rainforest will be highly rewarding, especially when you see the incredible Khlong Chak waterfall. Enjoy a cocktail on the exterior of your yacht as you watch the beautiful sunset, then turn in ready for your next day.
- Day 5
Phi Phi Islands
Continuing the idyllic scene of paradise, your next port of call are the Phi Phi Islands. With many of the islands being uninhabited you can almost guarantee you’ll find yourself a spot of pure seclusion and isolation. If you feel energetic, make your way into the embracing depths around you to see some stunning displays of marine life. There are plenty of diving sites to choose from so why not visit a few while you're in the area?
After a day of combing luscious beaches and meeting some stunning marine creatures, prepare to burn some of your energy in the lively night scene the Phi Phi Islands have to offer. Listen to live music, dance the night away or watch one of the many nightly shows at the various venues.
- Day 6
As your penultimate day of your charter experience, it's only apt that you visit some more divine tropical islands to make the most of the sublime environment. The super soft, pure white sands are ideal for sinking your toes in and for topping off your natural tan before you return home.
The waters in this area are crystal clear making the Racha Islands another perfect location to do some diving or snorkelling. If you fancy a go at fishing there are some fishing hotspots in these islands for you to make the perfect catch for a fresh supper on your last evening in these beautiful waters.
- Day 7
Return to Phuket
Relax on the exterior as you watch the idyllic sights unfurl in front of you. There are many islands dotted along the route back to Phuket which offer more divine white, sandy beaches and pure waters for diving opportunities.
Once you’re back on the mainland in Phuket, pick up some last minute treats and souvenirs, before heading to the main resort of Patong where you can get a cocktail or two to toast a safe journey home.
