The little ports and islands along the Andaman Sea on the west coasts of Thailand and Malaysia have long been stopping places for traders from India, Arabia and Europe. Starting in buzzing Singapore you’ll travel along the coast in your Star Clippers Tall Ship to the historical Malaysian city of Malacca, the island of Langkawi, ending in fun-filled Phuket.

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • The only habitations on Ko Adang are the Park offices so the pristine beaches and deserted coves are all yours!
  • The breathtaking island of Langkawi is one of a group of 104 islands scattered in the calm seas off the coast of Malaysia.
  • Work up an appetite while snorkelling, dine on Thai and Malaysian cuisine and sleep moored under the stars.

Itinerary


Day 1 Singapore

Singapore is a city dedicated to business. The spires of its skyscrapers look like a big bar graph pointing to the sky. But amid this obsessive neatness is a madly chaotic welter of peoples and cultures. Please board your Star Clippers Tall Ship at Singapore harbour between 3pm and 5pm. A transfer from your Singapore hotel or the Singapore airport to the Ship is not included in the trip package but can be purchased at an additional cost at the time of booking. (D)

Day 2 Malacca

Malacca. The Spice Trade. The two are inseparably associated. From the time of the early Renaissance explorers onward, it was the control of the Malaccan Straits that dictated who would own the most precious treasures of the Orient, its spices. (B)(L)(D)

Day 3 Sailing Between Malacca and Langkawi

Today you sail between Malacca and Langkawi. Relax in your private room, hit the water for a spot of swimming or snorkel to mingle with a wealth of curious marine life found deep off the Malaysian coast. If chilling out is more your style, perhaps grab a good book and spend the day on deck. Regardless of your energy levels, there is something for everyone along this picturesque coastline. (B)(L)(D)

Day 4 Langkawi

The breathtaking Malaysian island of Langkawi is one of a group of 104 islands scattered in the calm seas off the northern-most tip of Malaysia. The clear, tropical waters here provide some of the most spectacular swimming and diving in the world, while scenes of paddy fields contoured into limestone hillsides, lush tropical forests and high tumbling waterfalls, entrance nature lovers on land. (B)(L)(D)

Day 5 Ko Adang

Protected by the Ko Tarutao National Park, this 61-island archipelago is only a stone’s throw from the Malaysian border and way, way off the radar screen of tourist groups. The only habitations on Ko Adang are the Park offices and since there aren’t many visitors, the pristine beaches and deserted coves are all yours. (B)(L)(D)

Day 6 Phang Nga Bay

The sheer-sided sea mountains that rise vertically out of Phang Nga Bay form some of Thailand’s most spectacular scenery. The islands in this region feature wonderful white sandy beaches and superb coral reefs. Ko Hong is one of the prettiest bays in the area, huge monolithic rocks provides shade all day long on a beautiful white silica sand beach. (B)(L)(D)

Day 7 Ko Similan

The Similan Islands (which Ko Miang is a part of), or Nine Islands as they are also known because of their number, nestle in the Andaman Sea to the north of Phuket and are world-renowned among diving enthusiasts for underwater sightseeing. (B)(L)(D)

Day 8 Phuket

Phuket’s landscape is one of lush green hills, coconut groves and rubber plantations, with a coastline dotted with a dozen spectacular beaches. After breakfast, disembark the Ship between 8am and 10am. A transfer from the Ship to your Phuket hotel or the Phuket airport is not included in the trip package but can be purchased at an additional cost at the time of booking. (B)
