Day 1
A Nymphaea crew member will welcome guests at the Phuket airport. A limousine will
whisk guests off to Ao Po Grand Marina, where Nymphaea and the rest of the crew await.
When the guests are ready, Nymphaea will sail northeast towards Phang Nga Bay, an
unbelievably beautiful area dotted with magnificent limestone pinnacles, ancient caves
and aquatic grottos.
Visit the famous ‘Ko Ping Kan’ also known as the James Bond Island (featured in the
James Bond movie ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’) and ‘Koh Panyi’ or ‘Gypsy Island’,
a floating village built over the water on stilts, flanked by a giant monolith rock. The
villagers are descendents of sea gypsies 2 centuries ago. Hop on Nymphaea’s tender boat
to visit the bustling village and mingle with the friendly villagers.
Anchor at the scenic ‘Koh Yao Noi’, in the middle of the Phang Nga Bay and enjoy a
sumptuous dinner on board. The island is home to the exclusive ‘Six Senses Hideway’
resort where guests can choose to disembark for a relaxing massage.
Day 2
Set sail southeast for Krabi through crystal clear waters with stunning coral fringed
islands. While away the day on the yacht sunbathing, escape to a deserted beach, or opt
for a more active day snorkeling in the azure waters, kayaking through a pristine
mangrove forest or board an elephant for a trek through the lush hills of Krabi National
Park. Keep an eye out for dolphins in this area.
Anchor overnight at one of the many secluded coves if you would like to enjoy the
tranquility of the sea or near the luxurious ‘Rayavadee’ resort.

Stop by the dramatic Maya Bay, the jewel of Phi Phi Island. The surrounding sheer cliffs,
rising 100 meter high, are magnificent and provide a stunning backdrop for a bit of
kayaking. The movie “The Beach” starring Leonardo Di Caprio was filmed in Maya Bay.
