Are you looking for a great way to escape next winter? Good news, Star Clippers is again sending one of its three graceful tall ships to Southeast Asia, for the first time since 2010.

After a summer in the Mediterranean, the four-mast schooner Star Clipper will set sail for Thailand. From December 2016 to April 2017 she will explore the many idyllic islands scattered off the coast of Phuket.
The region has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Imagine your ship arriving under full sail before dropping anchor off the coast, on places where none of the big ships can come. The area has a spectacular underwater life, which is perfect for snorkelling. The onboard Zodiacs will be used for occasional photo safaris.
