CRYSTAL CLEAR WATERS
From palm-fringed sands to crystal-clear seas, Thailand is the gateway to South East Asias manifold charms. Set sail for Phuket, the largest of the Andaman coastal islands. Cruise through the emerald waves of Phang Nga Bay, then sample the spectacular diving off Ko Phi Phi. To the north, Myanmars Mergui Archiapelago is utterly unspoilt. Off-limits to foreigners until 1997, its 800 islands are home to wild monkeys, rainforest and barely discovered coral reefs.
To the south, the Langkawi Archipelago bobs just off the Malaysian mainland. A UNESCO World Geopark, these 99 islands are virtually uninhabited. Say hello to your own corner of paradise.
"A charter in Thailand must pass by the Surin Islands with their stunning vegetation, sea gypsies and great dive sites. Also the Spa experiences around Phuket are second to none."
