For the holidaymakers who are looking to get away from the rat race and enjoy a relaxing vacation, there is no better way of achieving this than spending some time sailing the eastern seaboard of Thailand.

The weather conditions are ideal and the sea is clear and clean.  The waters are ideal for scuba diving, snorkelling or just relax on board with a fishing boat trying to catch one of the magnificent kinds of fish found in this area. There are plenty of places where you can moor the boat while you go ashore to explore restaurants, places of interest and pursue some land based recreational activities.

Sailing along the eastern seaboard will bring you to some of the most beautiful areas in Thailand, for example the bustling beach city of Pattaya or the beautiful seaside village of Bang Saen. There are many spots along the coast where you can relax and enjoy the friendly, welcoming culture of Thailand. However if you really want to see the beauty of the eastern seaboard, you should break away from the coastline and head towards some of the most beautiful islands in the Asian region.

Koh Chang is the third largest in Thailand behind Phuket but is less well known and unlike other islands not overdeveloped; a blessing as it retains its natural splendour. Koh Chang encourages a slow lifestyle and is ideal for nature lovers. Sailing along the coastlines of the Koh Chang Marine National Park will bring you to beautiful, sandy beaches, hidden island coves and glorious calm bays.

Koh Chang is covered with virgin rain forests, and home to some amazing waterfalls. The waters along the coastline are a crystal, clear blue and home to beautifully coloured coral reefs.

A bit further down eastwards of Koh Chang is Koh Mak with magnificent beaches and a many nice resorts and restaurants to stop by. A few kilometres more east is finally Koh Kood, which is the last major island before the Cambodian border. Koh Kood features stunning beaches, pristine rainforests, waterfalls, and a few really interesting resorts and restaurants to stop by, everything from the fisherman hut style up to the super-luxury class.

The three-island Man archipelago is also a great sailing destination off the eastern seaboard. Koh Monnok Island is not found in many travel guides. The island is privately owned, with only one accommodation option, not that it matters if you are staying on your boat.  Koh Monnok is a picture-perfect tropical island, with the crystal clear waters and the beautiful white sands.

The island is a protected area under the patronage of Her Majesty the Queen and while you can visit the area, be sure to take food and drink with you as there no public facilities. The third island in his group is Mon Klang it is particularly popular with snorkelers due to the fabulous reefs.

It has got everything to offer the sailing fraternity from consistent weather to the crystal clear waters. The area is truly an outstanding are of natural beauty that the leisure sailor is sure to enjoy.
