This is The Yacht Week: Thailand. Leonardo DiCaprio was right; it was just like “The Beach”. However nothing could quite prepare us for witnessing the beauty of the crystal clear teal blue Andaman Sea, the melting hot equator sun, the soft white sandy beaches, the amber glow of the endless sunset and the giant jungle covered blobs that cascaded into the ocean below. It really was Jurassic Park.
Besides the scenery, nothing in Thailand was predictable – Same Same, But Different: bottle service was delivered on motorcycles, Pad Thai three times a day was standard, inflatables were a currency, skippers were moonlighting as Russian supermodels, there was never a short supply of rail vodka, and stray cats could even heal wounds. Motorbike adventures lead us to destination waterfalls, black rain clouds would be chased away by the sun, elephants seemed to take over the roads, black caves opened up to grand volcanic jungles and a paradise all our own. Children were fire dancing, waiters were named Mud, shoes were optional, cat boxes were an attraction, Thai kick boxing was our after-bar, coconut water was our drink of choice and grilled avocado was LITERALLY heaven.
“The Yacht Week Cannot Be Explained. It Can Only Be Experienced.”
