The best time to visit Asia is the dry season between November and April when the winds are light, which is called the north east monsoon season. October is one of the wettest months and the water isn’t as clear because of the heavier seas, but you’ll find the weather is tropical and humid all-year-round at 30ºC/86ºF.
From Phuket you can enjoy the perfect Thailand yacht charter and discover some of the best coral reef snorkelling and diving in Asia within Phang Nga Bay. Sail Koh Roi, the remote islands in the Koh Hong Krabi island group and enjoy the lively atmosphere at Koh Phi Phi Don. From Koh Samui, join in the full moon parties at Koh Phangan, kayak to Ko Fan Yai or see the turtles at Koh Tao.
Sailing in Malaysia with a yacht charter from Langkawi means you can explore an archipelago of hundreds of islands and a UNESCO protected area. Ashore, walk Langkawi’s astonishing sky bridge in the mountains, some 660m above sea level, or sail to Pulau Dayang Bunting with its Lake of the Pregnant Maiden, which is said to offer mystical powers. For wildlife, head to Pulua Singa Besar or find some of the best snorkelling in Asia at Pulau Payar. Nearby are the Tarutao and Butang island groups.
