PLEASE NOTE: The following itinerary may be subject to changes. Please check with a member of our team. 

Day 1
Airport pick up, meet & greet: You will be met on arrival in Bangkok by your group leader who will take you to your guesthouse and introduce you to the rest of your group. The first day is kept free to relax and unwind after a long flight before heading out to experience some Bangkok nightlife.
Day 2
Bangkok River Cruise & Temples: The best way to see Bangkok is by boat on the Chao Phraya River. On day two you will be taken you to two of the most prestigious temples in Thailand to experience some Thai culture before jumping on a local Tuk Tuk back though Bangkok to Khao San Road where we will have a late lunch and arrange a time to meet in the evening for dinner.
Day 3
Thai Massage & Overnight Train: Today we check out of our Bangkok accommodation as we prepare for our journey down south. In the morning we will go to a local spa for a traditional Thai Massage, the perfect way to relax before the overnight train. You will have a few hours to shop on Khao San Road before we meet late afternoon to head to the train station. You can either catch up on some sleep or take in the views of both Bangkok and the Thai countryside as we travel south to our next destination.
Day 4
Khao Sok National Park: We arrive at Surat Thani in the morning where we are picked up and taken to Khao Sok National Park. Khao Sok is home to some of the most incredible scenery in the world. We travel by long tail boat to get to our floating bungalows which are situated on a beautiful fresh water lake surrounded by mountains & rain forest. You will be able to go kayaking, tubing, bamboo rafting, explore some caves or just relax and take in the stunning views. A huge contrast from Bangkok.
Day 5
Arrive in Koh Phangan – Bottle Beach: After Khao Sok we catch the ferry to Koh Phangan. When we arrive we are taken to Bottle Beach (one of our favorite spots in Thailand), a beautiful, secluded bay in the North of Koh Phangan where we can chill out in the sea or on the beach and have our own private beach party with some cocktails around a camp fire, lanterns & music. You will spend the evening in your own private beach bungalow and can wake up at your leisure to the sound of the waves breaking on the sand.
Day 6
Bottle Beach & Activities Day: Today you will have the morning to laze around on Bottle Beach, swim, play beach volleyball/football, build sandcastles or whatever else you want to do. Early afternoon, we jump on a longtail boat to a neighbouring beach – here you get to take part in a traditional Muay Thai (Thai boxing) lesson. Later we head to Haad Rin to check into the resort where we will spend the next 2 nights. You have some free time to explore or chill by the pool before we meet for dinner & possibly a few drinks on the famous Full Moon Party beach.
Day 7
Boat trip, Farewell dinner & Beach party: We are picked up in the morning and taken by boat to the extraordinarily beautiful island of Koh Nang Yuan (just off Koh Tao). The bays here have some of the best snorkelling/diving in Thailand. We will snorkel at two locations, see some tropical fish and coral reef, then head up to the viewpoint to get some postcard pics, lunch is included on the boat. In the evening we will go for a group farewell dinner (on us!) then head down to the beach for some farewell fun and perhaps a bucket or two with your new friends to celebrate an awesome week!
Day 8-12
Head to Koh Tao ‘Turtle Island’: On day 8 we will catch the ferry over to Koh Tao or ‘Turtle Island’ where we will spend the next four days (recently voted ‘Best Island in South East Asia’ in a Trip Advisor survey!). We stay right in the middle of beautiful Sairee Beach just meters from the sea. During these four days, we’ll also take a boat trip to Koh Nangyuan with snorkeling, cliff jumping and viewpoint treks as well as a beach BBQ and Koh Tao pub crawl! You’ll also get the opportunity to take part in several other optional adventure activities including scuba diving, rock climbing, abseiling, water skiing, wake boarding and even free diving. Or just spend your spare time chilling on the beach and topping up your tan!
Day 12-15
Spectacular Railay Beach: On day 12 we leave Koh Tao and head over to Railay Beach, a spectacular spot on the West Coast which is technically part of the peninsular but cut off by mountains meaning you can only get there by boat so it still has that special ‘island feel’. We have three days and nights to completely relax here. Chill out in one of the many cool reggae bars and restaurants on the beach, trek up to the amazing lagoon and viewpoint if you fancy a challenge or take part in some optional activities like snorkeling, sea kayaking & rock climbing. In the evenings we can check out the bays night life and watch a fire show over a cocktail or two.

Day 15-17
Koh Phi Phi: The next two days are spent on the famous Phi Phi Island where we take you on a sunset boat trip round the islands, stop at Maya Bay (Where they filmed ‘The Beach!’), Monkey Island and the Viking caves as well as some snorkeling in Phi Phi’s bright turquoise waters and free lunch on the boat and swimming with the phosphorescence (plankton that glows in the dark) when the sun has gone down. Again you will have plenty of time to relax on the beach, explore the island, experience the nightlife and more optional scuba diving.
Day 18
Phuket: On day 17 we hop on the island boat over to Phuket, the largest of the Thai islands where we finish the trip. Here will explore the wonders of Phuket & Patong in party Tuk Tuks as a final night party to celebrate the end of an awesome trip! On day 18 we can help you sort out all of your onward travel whether it’s back to Bangkok for a flight home or the next leg of your Thailand adventure!
