Phuket has been named as one of 5 Top destinations to celebrate New Year’s Eve on a luxury yacht by boatinternational.com.
Thailand’s beaches offer the full range of options for New Year’s Eve: from utter peace among film-set beauty in the Andaman islands to the hedonistic abandon of the Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan. Phuket is a happy medium between the two, getting the balance of escapism and nightlife just right.
The five star hotels on the western flank of the island put on dazzling pyrotechnics. “Anchor in Surin beach and watch the fireworks display which is staged by the Amanpuri resort,” says Gordon Fernandes of Asia Pacific Superyachts. “The best place to watch is on board a superyacht.”
With Thailand now offering foreign-flagged charter licenses an increased number of superyachts are expected to head to the country this holiday season.
