World ARC 2024, Leg 8
Lombok, Malaysia, Langkawi, Phuket (Thailand)
September-October 2024, 1,600nm
For this leg we have plenty of time to continue our exploration of the Indonesian islands with beautiful stops and local harbours before clearing out from Batam opposite Singapore harbour - a day trip is possible. From then on it’s up the Mallaca straights (once known for piracy, it has been completely safe for many years) before making our way up to Malaysia. We may pop into the mainland but our main focus will be the islands. We will stop at the island of Penang with its colonial capital, national parks, and an incredible street food market – Malaysian cuisine is colourful and delicious and the markets are the way to try it.
Next up Langkawi. This beautiful island offers lovely anchorages and swimming as well as nice hikes and waterfalls inland. Our final destination will be Phuket in Thailand and a quick tour of Krabi Bay - we spent 6 months of refit here in 2015 and we will be very happy to revisit some of our favourite places.
