Cruise from Phuket to Koh Lanta and see charming villages and sample some of the best cuisine in Thailand.

Thai Cat Pub & Restaurant serves flagrant curry paired with little noodle called “mee kaao” and a “Thai omelette”. If you’re looking for that special meal, the Seven Seas inside Pimalai Resort and Spa, offers great food, attentive service and the largest selection of wines on the island. For more food or the perfect souvenir explore the bustling port city of Ban Saladan’s night markets. See Old Town’s old-time wooden Thai shophouses to feel like you have gone back in time and soak up the sunshine and beach-life of an island paradise in Kantiang Bay.
Architecture shaped by the eclectic mix of nationalities such as Thais, Chinese, Malay, Indians, Nepalese and a young and growing Eurasian community can be found throughout Phuket.
For a nature hit visit the serene Bang Pae Waterfall (pre/post sail activity – 15mins from base in taxi) surrounded by verdant tropical jungle in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park. It is Phuket’s largest waterfall and during the wet season you can take a dip in its rock pools & why visit the Gibbons project while you’re there. Get up close with majestic elephants at The Phuket Elephant Sanctuary. Float past anemones, parrot fish, various types of coral and the dancing shafts of golden sunlight at some of Phuket’s best snorkelling beaches including Ya Nui and Ao Sane. A part of our suggested itineraries is Nai Harn Beach, one of the island’s more popular destinations. Once known only to in-the-know locals, it has been very firmly “discovered”. However, as the small bay is home to only a few hotels, restaurants and shops, it retains its quiet charm. With The Nai Harn nearby, it is a popular anchorage for boats during the high season or another out-of-the way spot nearby is the tiny beach of Ao Sane.
