Journey east to Koh Samui and enjoy beach bliss and an excursion to beautiful Angthong National Marine Park. Then, transfer over to Koh Phangan.

You’ll then enjoy a much-needed detox with a unique temple steam experience.

Round off the adventure with a few amazing days on the beautiful Thai island of Koh Tao. Staying a stone’s throw from a beautiful beach, you’ll have all the best bars and restaurants on your doorstep during your stay on the island. The beaches and coastline hide a vast array of optional activities, such as snorkelling, quad biking, abseiling, cycling, rock climbing, kayaking and other water sports.
