Things to Consider:
Yachting Seasons & Climate:
Stable temperatures characterise Thailand as a year-round tourist destination, and visitors can expect to enjoy 28°C/82°F while sunbathing and swimming in Thailand's bio-diverse waters. From May to October Thailand has a 'wet monsoon season' which is hot and humid with an increased chance of downpours. The driest and coolest weather runs from November through to April and the superyacht group tends to visit during the festive period of December and January.
Clothing to Pack for Your Charter:
Thailand is a conservative country and staff tend to be friendlier to guests who observe local standards. Once off the beach, cover up and wear shoes while walking on the streets - going barefoot and tracking dust into buildings is considered offensive. If visiting temples, cover shoulders, legs and cleavage.
