Koh Samui is one of Thailand’s loveliest islands. It offers mesmerizing scenery and is a joy to explore be it on foot or while crossing its long stretch of clear blue waters. A relaxing way to tour the island is to go on a cruise. Riding a sailboat, while it sounds old school is always in style. It can’t hurt if you will choose a luxury vessel for your trip. Among the most prestigious water vessels you can find here is the Red Baron. This stunning scarlet cruise ship is as elegant and majestic as it sounds. Unlike a ride on a speedboat, Red Baron offers a more relaxed kind of travel—a slow easy pace meant for people who have plenty of time in their hands and know that sometimes fast doesn’t always mean better. The Red Baron can take you on a tour of Angthong National Marine Park or on a day cruise that involves a trip to some of the best local beaches and a stop to neighboring islands where secluded unspoilt spots can be seen.
