 Langkawi: is situated in the north-west of Malaysia, next
 to the border of Thailand. One of the charter options is to
 spend several days sailing to some islands in Thai waters.
 The Langkawi charter base is a 30 minute scenic drive from
 the airport. The island is easily accessed by direct flights
 of less than 2 hours from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore,
 where international flights land each day.
 If travelling by land within Malaysia, there are  ferries  that do
 the 25 mile, 1 hour trip, several times every day from Kuala
 Perlis and Kuala  Kedah, or a 60 mile 3 hour journey from
 Penang. Also ferries from Satun, Thailand  take only 1 hour,
 several times a day,  for the 25 mile trip.
 Population: The small population of 55,000 people enjoy
 living and working at a leisurely pace on this laidback island.

 Entry Visas are not required by tourists from most countries,
 for a stay of up to 90 days. Passports should have minimum
 of six months remaining, before date of expiry.

Weather: The North-East wind season, from November to April, is mostly fine and clear.
The South-West season, May to October, has occasional rain between long sunny periods.
Temperatures: Highs 30c (85F). Lows 24c (75F)   Tidal Range: varies from 2 - 3 metres.

There are NO TROPICAL STORMS/CYCLONES or HURRICANES at any time of year.

 Safety: The Langkawi area is known as an extremely safe destination on both land and
 water. There has never been an incident of piracy in surrounding regions in modern times.
 Being part of the Andaman Sea, which is regularly patrolled by the Navy, Coast Guard
 and Water Police, it should not be confused with occasional trouble spots in the South
 China Sea and Sulu Sea, over 2,000 miles away, between Borneo and the Philippines.

Features: Langkawi is a Duty Free island. There are no taxes on buying/selling/chartering a yacht. All goods, including vehicles, alcohol, cigarettes and electronics are totally duty free. Also, there are fabulous beaches, fine hotels, great shopping, excellent restaurants and bars. There are no traffic jams, no road rage, next to no crime rate and very friendly, helpful locals.
All this adds up to the perfect paradise -  to buy or charter a yacht and go sailing in the sun.

Langkawi to Phuket: There are 100's of islands, bays/lagoons with crystal clear water,
full of tropical fish and beautiful coral, plus many deserted beaches with clean white sand.
The cruising area of 6,000 square miles has many secluded anchorages to choose from. Having so many pristine, uncluttered destinations to explore and safe waters to navigate all year long, it certainly makes this one of the most idyllic cruising grounds on the planet.
Whether your interest is finding a yacht to buy or charter,
this is the place to enjoy sailing.
