Overview

Witness some of Thailand’s most beautiful archipelagos whilst enjoying Star Clipper’s old-style charm on these two fantastic cruise itineraries. Both start with a three night hotel stay in Phuket, before embarking on an eight day cruise; exploring breath-taking diving spots, vibrant towns, and islands full of natural beauty - including hidden gems and areas that can only be seen by boat. Both trips then end with a one night hotel stay in Patong Bay, Phuket.

The Star Clipper reflects the nautical heritage of old-time sailing ships, mixing old traditions with modern comforts. Offering a chilled vibe and a sense of adventure, authentic sailing ship décor is blended with contemporary state rooms featuring an ensuite, DVD players, and sometimes even a private veranda. Over the course of seven nights, this charming sailing boat will journey through wonderful areas, including Similan Island, Phang Nga Bay, and Langkawi.

Northern Cruise Itinerary

Days 1-3

For three nights you’ll be staying at a hotel in Phuket, with a great amount of time to explore the naturally beautiful island. Covered in rainforest-clad mountains and surrounded by turquoise waters, this island is home to some of Thailand’s most stunning beaches, so chill out in the sand, or discover the more vibrant main town of Patong.

Day 4

Phuket - Patong Bay

Today you’ll spend the day in Patong Bay to discover its luscious hillsides, verdant coconut groves, and its pristine white beaches. You can even dip in and out of a myriad of vibrant shops, restaurants and bars, before boarding the Star Clipper.

Day 5

Ko Surin

Built up of two relatively small islands, this gorgeous area is part of a National Marine Park, gracing travellers with unspoilt natural beauty both on land and under water. There’s an abundance of marine and land wildlife to spot, ducking between the lush flora and emerald waters.

Day 6

Similan Island

Otherwise known as Nine Islands, this is a very popular spot with diving enthusiasts thanks to its dream-like landscapes and the crystal clear Andaman Sea.

Day 7

Hin Daeng and Ko Rok Nok

Begin the day with an early morning visit to Hin Daeng, one of Thailand’s most dramatic dive sites. These small rocks jutting from the topaz waters plunge down over 50 metres underwater, home to plenty of tropical fish and marine life. Afterwards you’ll journey to Ko Rok Nok, one of 15 islands that make up the picturesque Lanta group, located just off the east coast of Thailand and part of a National Marine Park.

Day 8

Langkawi

The view today will be jaw-dropping, journeying to one of 104 islands scattered close by to the northern-most tip of Malaysia.

To start the day you’ll be visiting Phang Nga Bay, home to pretty coral reefs, wonderful beaches, and sheer limestone karsts jutting out of its clear blue waters.

The capital is also full of great shops, restaurants and theatres, as well as the spectacular Buddhist Kek Lok Si Temple.

Day 7

Ko Adang. Butang Group

Travelling almost as far south as you can go on the western coast of Thailand, this marvellous 61 island archipelago is protected by Ko Tarutao National Park and only a short distance from the Malaysian border.
