Map of Gulf of Thailand

The Gulf of Thailand is a shallow arm of the South China Sea bordered by Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Comparatively few yachts visit this region. Depending on the time of year it offers ideal sailing conditions, light to moderate winds, calm seas and many interesting islands and anchorages.

Although Singapore and the southern Malaysia ports of Johor Bahru and the port of entry at Pengerang are not actually adjacent to the Gulf of Thailand they are useful jumping off points and have been included here for completeness.

Only the east coast ports and Islands of Malaysia are shown here. Other ports exist on the west coast, see the Malaysia page for more information.
