Join us on this exotic HOT BuOYS gay sailing cruise from Phuket, Thailand to Langkawi, Malaysia! This gay sailing adventure trip combines two of the most sought after destinations of Thailand and Malaysia with a fantastic remote Marine National Park. Escape the Phuket crowds and join Captain Philip as he goes to his favorite Marine National Park and then onward to Langkawi where you can tour the Skybridge.
Gay Phuket combines tropical white sandy beaches with intense nightlife. Phuket is one of Thailandís largest cities and tourist spots as such it has one of the biggest and most active gay communities around. Patong is the largest town on Phuket and home to most of the nightlife both gay and straight. Phuket is Thailandís largest island, roughly the same size as Singapore, and itís linked to mainland Thailand by a bridge. The island is located on the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea.
Thailand has some of the most stunning beaches in Southeast Asia. The island of Phuket has a huge array of options from the most visited beach of Patong to the secluded beaches like Mai Khao, Haad Sai Kaew, Banana, Freedom and Yae Beach.
The nightlife in Phuket is probably the most crazy and energetic in all of Thailand. Perhaps the only rival would be Bangkok that has an equally large and thriving gay scene. Youíll find all the gay venues located in Patong and grouped together in an area called Paradise Complex, which is comprised of several gay bars, clubs, saunas and other gay venues.
Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah, is a district and an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. The islands are a part of the state of Kedah, which is adjacent to the Thai border.

Located 47 kilometers northeast of Phuket, the spectacularly scenic Phang Nga Bay is dotted with over 100 islands and is one of the best sailing grounds in the world. The bay is bounded by Phuket island to the west, Phang Nga and Krabi provinces to the north and east.
The bay is famed for its limestone (karst) formations and cliffs that rise vertically up from the warm turquoise waters, the highest of which protrudes 350 m from the seabed. Many of these are fissured with caves which can be reached by sea kayak or dinghy. As well as many islands, the bay contains many inlets and channels waiting to be explored.
Phang Nga Bay also boasts a unique rock formation and the island of Koh Ping Kan, made famous in the James Bond film ďThe Man with the Golden Gun.Ē After visiting Koh Ping Kan, just a few minutes north is the Sea Gypsy village of Koh Pan Yi. This village is built almost entirely on stilts, over the water at the base of the towering limestone cliffs of Koh Pan Yi.
