Phuket, we’re on our way

Dunia Baru is currently sailing from Langkawi to Phuket, on the west of Thailand. This popular holiday island forms the western boundary of 400-square-kilometer Phang Nga Bay, creating a raggedy coastline that’s speckled with the most beautiful islands (look at that map!).

So many people come here to laze on the area’s gorgeous beaches, and don’t realise that it’s been a protected area since 1982, when Phang Nga Bay was declared a national park. The 42 islands in the shallow bay are home to the globally threatened Malaysian plover (and 87 other bird species), the white-hand gibbon, and the endangered serow antelope;  in the water around these islands you have a good chance of seeing dugong and black finless porpoise. There are also limestone caves and cliffs, and archaeological sites that date back to around 10,000 years ago, when it was possible to walk from Phuket to the mainland.

Of course our guests won’t have to spend that much energy getting to know the islands of  bay, as they’ll be sailing in sheer luxury, with every whim tended to by our crew. It’s going to be a beautiful week exploring Phuket and Phang Nga Bay, and we look forward to hosting our guests on the holiday of a lifetime.
