This small slice of paradise is found 5 kilometres off the east coast of Phuket, between Coconut island and the sister island Rang Noi.
The main beach (east) of this island is about 1 km lined with coconut trees. Splashing in the clear blue warm water, you can enjoy great views of the mainland. While this beach is almost busy with tour packages travelers, the island has more options off the beaten tracks further to the centre. And even some accommendations as well as a restaurant.
Rang Yai is home to a famous pearl farm. You can admire and buy the products in the local pearl shop. But there are more activities such as canoeing, riding the bicycle around the island, or golfing.
Value Added Tax (VAT) is a tax that is levied on consumer goods and services in almost every country in the world and, similar to the US sales tax, increases the final price for consumers accordingly. The current VAT rate in Thailand is 7%.
This tax revenue is used to finance public facilities such as piers and jetties, staff and Marinne rescue services.
ATTENTION: Nobody likes to pay taxes, which is why some providers of yachts waive VAT for their customers in order to be able to act more cheaply than the legal competition. However, companies that offer services without VAT are acting illegally and thereby also putting their customers in an illegal position that can be prosecuted by the government. A business transaction without VAT is illegal by definition, which is why no insurance cover or legal claim to correct service provision can be granted in this case.
Since our yacht charters also have many corporate customers who are exempt from VAT, we show our prices net and add the VAT in the online cost estimate in order to offer all customers the highest possible cost transparency.
