DAY 1-3 – BANGKOK
Spend the first three days in the capital city. You will be picked up from the airport and shown around Bangkok checking out two famous temples plus indulge in a Thai massage before heading south on an overnight train.
DAY 4-5 – KHAO SOK NATIONAL PARK
Jump off the train early morning and head to one of the most beautiful spots on the plant. Stay in floating bungalows on a fresh water lake, explore in kayaks, chill in tubes or top up the tan. Day five we make our way to Koh Phangan and arrive late afternoon to Bottle Beach where you will have the rest of the day to chill out before having our own private fire show in the evening.
DAY 6-7 – EXPLORE KOH PHANGAN
Spend the next two days exploring the beauty that Koh Phangan has to offer. You will try a bit of Muay Thai boxing at a local gym and jump on a boat cruise around the island stopping off at the best snorkelling hotspots.
DAY 8-11 – KOH TAO ADVENTURE
We head over to Koh Tao in the morning and spend the next four days here where you will have the chance to tailor make your adventure. You can choose from a list of activities such as diving, water skiing, abseiling, wake boarding or flying trapeze (all additional costs). Alternatively you can make the most of the included activities such as trekking, cliff jumping, snorkelling or even turn into a beach bum for your time on the island. On day 11 we take the night boat back across to the mainland to head west.
DAY 12-13 – RAILAY BEACH, KRABI
Time to head west! Days 12 & 13 will be spent at the picturesque Railay Beach. It is still part of the mainland but has an island like feel to it as you can only get there by boat due to the vast limestone mountains surrounding the beach. There is plenty of chance for more water activities such as snorkelling, kayaking and caving. You will also get to experience evening fire shows with a few cocktails on the sand.
DAY 14-15 – PHI PHI ISLAND & MAYA BAY
The next two days are spent on the famous Phi Phi Island. We take you on a sunset cruise around the local islands, we stop at Maya Bay (where they filmed ‘The Beach’ with Leo), Monkey Island and the Viking Caves as well as snorkelling in Phi Phi’s emerald waters. Lunch is provided and you also get to swim with the phosphorescence (glow in the dark plankton) once the sun goes down. Again you will have plenty of time to relax on the beach, add in optional activities or explore the island and enjoy the nightlife.
DAY 16-18 – PHUKET
On day 16 we head to Phuket, Thailand’s largest island. Experience Patong’s colourful nightlife in a party Tuk Tuk to celebrate the end of our time together. As always your group leader will be on hand to help you plan your next steps once the trip is over.
