Sailing / Yatching
Cruising / Sailing

While Thailand’s Gulf coast and Andaman coast both provide navigable waters, Phang Nga Bay, located just east of Phuket, is Thailand’s premier sailing destination. Sailing day trips out of Phuket include visits to floating villages and one of the bay’s top attractions, James Bond Island. For more serious sailors, there are lessons and private charters available for longer trips, including voyages to the Surin Islands and Koh Tarutao Marine National Park. Even visitors heading to Pattaya have many opportunities for day trips to nearby islands or longer trips down the coast to Hua Hin or even Koh Samui.

Learning Activities

Scuba diving is a top activity in Thailand as Thailand features more than 1,000 miles of coastline facing two different bodies of water. Both the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea are speckled with hundreds of islands surrounded by pellucid, aquamarine waters teeming with marine life including manta rays, dugongs, barracuda, and the occasional whale shark, the world’s largest fish!


 
   

Because of these idyllic conditions and incredibly reasonable prices, Thailand has become one of the top destinations in the world to learn how to scuba dive. Most popular is the island of Koh Tao, whose shallow, gentle waters are perfect for first time divers. Dozens of internationally accredited diving schools with regulated prices provide certification to thousands of visitors all year round. Koh Tao is located just north of Koh Samui, another great place to learn to scuba, particularly if you are planning on getting certified but wish to participate in other activities during your stay. Either way, the Gulf coast has excellent year round weather, making it possible to get certified no matter when you visit.

On the Andaman coast the diving season is restricted to the non-monsoon season months: October through April, when seas are far more calm. Dive operators in Phuket, Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, and Krabi all feature numerous dive shops that are qualified to give international PADI certification courses and feature spectacular diving conditions.

That said, a dive course isn’t a rubber stamp; several days of coursework and pencil and paper examinations are followed by instruction and training in a swimming pool before divers get the opportunity to try their skills in the ocean. Even then they must show competency in the required skills before they are going to see a large number of fish. Make sure you plan enough time to do some fun dives after your course has finished so you can benefit from your new certification.

 
       
Bird watching  

Bird Watching
Ecotourism / Green Travel

Nearly 1,000 different species of bird can be found in Thailand, as the diversity of Thailand’s ecosystems provides climates suitable for a wealth of indigenous and migratory bird. From the forests of the north to the plains of central Thailand and the wetlands of the south, Thailand is a great destination for birdwatchers, particularly as Thailand’s infrastructure allows for you to stay in lovely accommodation, with gracious Thai hosts, conveniently located near some of the best birding in Thailand.

 
   


Some of the best Thai bird watching is in the south of Thailand at Khao Sok National Park, where six species of hornbill can be spotted, and Phan Nga Bay, where kayaking silently through the mangrove forests is a magical way to look see the birds of Thailand. Other top destinations to see Thailand birds are Khao Sam Roi Yod, Khao Yai National Park, Doi Chiang Dao, Bung Boraphet, and Bangpoo, where its possible to spot the Black-faced Spoonbill. Even in Bangkok there are great opportunities to spot birds of Thailand, from Lumphini Park to Silom Road, where thousands of swallows reside.
