Idyllic beaches and untouched rainforests backed by limestone cliffs – Thailand’s scenery really is cruising perfection.
Thailand’s western coastline is the ultimate in remote island escapes. While it has its fair-share of high-end tourist centres, it’s the hidden archipelagos tucked away from the droves of holidaymakers that make the Thai seas worth navigating. As beautiful as Phuket and Ao Nang may be, you’ll never struggle to find a spot on the beaches of Ko Yao Yai or Ko Rok Noi. Spot tropical fish amongst the secluded reefs of Tarutao National Marine Park, and explore the jungles and limestone cliffs of the Krabi province. If you’re lucky, the waters will be all your own, without another boat in sight.
Land and Sea Cruises
One could spend a lifetime cruising the coastlines of Europe and Asia, but there’s plenty more to experience on terra firma. Peregrine’s new Land and Sea Cruises deliver the best of both worlds: small-ship coastal cruising and classic Peregrine adventures on land.
