One of the best ways to make your Phuket stay special is to take a cruise vacation. There are many different sailing cruises from Phuket to Phang Nga Bay and other nearest Thai isles —Phi Phi, Raya, Similan, and others. While sailing, you can enjoy sunbathing and taste delicious Thai dishes, fresh fruits and various drinks on board. What is more, it's a great chance to try snorkelling and diving far from land.
Best time for sailing is high tourist season, from November until April, with peak months from December until January. From November until February expect sunny and pleasant days and enjoyable water temperature. During March and May, the air temperature will highly increase with the hottest days in April. Some travelers go for May–October during the southwest monsoon when winds are stronger and sailing conditions are better than in the dry season.
