A trip wouldn't be complete without a stop at the iconic James Bond Island, seen in the movie "The Man with the Golden Gun," and a visit to the one-of-a-kind fishing village of Koh Panyi. This village, populated by 360 families, is built upon stilts and is a must-see.

Anchor off of Ko Phi Phi Don for its renowned snorkeling, diving, and rock climbing. Spend the day relaxing on one of the island's stunning beaches and spend the evening exploring its nightclubs and watching a captivating fire show at Carlitos. With no roads on the island, take your yacht to the secluded Hat Yo beach at the southern tip and soak up the sun on its powdery white sand. For your next destination, visit Ko Lanta Yai and go horseback riding beneath the island's umbrella trees. Afterward, grab a plate of spicy seafood at the waterfront in Ban Sala Dan.
