Getting to our recommended sailing area and ports of departure is easy.
Most likely, you will board your yacht on Thailand’s Phuket Island or in Kawthaung, in the south of Myanmar. In both instances, Phuket International Airport is a convenient and well-connected place to fly to. From there, you can take a taxi or bus directly to the yacht or to your accommodation. This will take 30 minutes to 1 hour if we meet on Phuket Island, or a 4-hour car ride plus a short river crossing by longboat if we meet in Kawthaung.
Either way, we can help you get local transport organised or even pick you up at the airport.
If you are arriving from within Myanmar, you can fly to Kawthaung Airport, which connects to various domestic airports with Air Bagan and Myanma Airways. Here, too, we are happy to help you get organised.
Before You Fly
Below is a checklist of what you want to take care of before you board the plane:
- Get informed about your visa situation for Myanmar and/or Thailand and get a visa before leaving your country if you need to
- Get cash (USD, Thai Baht)
- The usual vaccinations
- Get informed about the malaria risk (and other tropical diseases), possibly get medication
- Pack mosquito repellent, sunscreen and a hat
Be aware that in the south of Myanmar your opportunities to buy anything other than local food will be very limited. Also don’t expect to be able to change money or find ATMs.
