The Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, a regatta in the Andaman Sea near Malaysia. The Andaman Sea is a sail area which has not yet been discovered by many sailors. The Phuket King’s Cup Regatta started for the first time in 1987 in honor of the 60th birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Since then, the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta has been an annual international event. During the day they you can enjoy the competition on the open waters of the azure sea and in the evenings you can dance and have some drinks at the cool beach parties you will never forget.
After 3 days of serious games and beautiful celebrations it is time for a rest day. A great opportunity to visit the James Bond Island in Phang Nga Bay, known from the movie The Man with the Golden Gun. During your visit to Phuket you can also decide to explore the Island and take a beautiful walk through the tropical rainforest in Khao Phra Taew National Park. After a wonderful day of rest there are still two exciting match days to follow and they will be concluded with an awards ceremony and a big party to close the past days with a bang.

As we just mentioned, Phuket is a beautiful Island which offers more than just the regatta. Phuket is an island in the province of Phuket in Thailand. It is in area the largest island in Thailand. On the island there are many beaches which are popular thanks to the great diving opportunities. Phuket is surrounded by many islands around it, what enables you to visit more than just Phuket. Where you accommodate yourself depends on your plans for your stay in Phuket. I usually stay in the Banyan Tree Hotel in Phuket and love the staff there and the location but there are many hotels and apartments close to the beach or more into the center, you are always located near one of the Islands beautiful areas. If you can´t decide, Patong beach is where the majority of the tourists love to go. Patong has beautiful beaches and an exciting nightlife.
