Thailand, West Coast and Islands
Info : June Bahtra
June Bahtra is a traditional Siamese junk boat which sails daily around scenic Phang Nga Bay. Famed for its limestone karst’s, Phang Nga Bay is the Thailand of picture postcards. The wooden schooner spends the day sailing around the bay with stops at James Bond Island (the most famous karst) and a sea gypsy village. Excursions are also made aboard a smaller long tail boat to more difficult to reach parts of the bay like mangrove forests and intricate caves.
After a morning of exploration a Thai buffet lunch is served on-board the boat. The afternoon is less structured with the opportunity to swim, sunbath and relax at your leisure.
This is a great way to explore the highlights of the bay in a small group with a knowledgeable guide. Return transfers to the boat are included from Phuket.
The Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok was superb and we couldn’t fault it. Wonderful service, friendly and helpful staff, amazing breakfast buffets, what more could you ask for?
