Island of Thailand 2018 Itinerary

This trip has two options:

  • Option 1: 10-day trip ending on Koh Phangan
  • Option 2: 15-day trip ending on Koh Tao

Day 1: Arrive in Thailand. Fly into Bangkok Airport today. You’ll be met at the airport by a member of the local team and transferred to your city centre accommodation.

Day 2: Bangkok Tour. Explore the city from the water, as you cruise along the canals in a traditional longtail boat. Then pay a visit to Wat Arun and Wat Pho, two of the most famous temples in the city. You’ll also visit the gorgeous Grand Palace (entrance fee not included) and enjoy a tuk-tuk ride back to the accommodation before heading north to Kanchanaburi in the evening.

Day 3: Kanchanaburi. Waking up in the beautiful Kanchanaburi countryside this morning, we’ll make our way over to the wonderful elephant home to help make up food for the elephants then, after feeding it to them, you’ll get to walk side-by-side with these amazing animals to a local watering hole to give them a bath! In the afternoon we’ll head back to Bangkok for some dinner and a few drinks. 

Day 4: Transfer to Railay. Take an included internal flight from Bangkok to Krabi and then transfer to Railay for sunset drinks on the beach. Life is about to get really, really good!

Day 5: Railay Beach. Spend today on the exquisite white sands of Railay Beach. Explore the coast with an included boat trip and then venture beneath the surface with some snorkelling.

Day 6: Hop over to Koh Phi Phi. Next up: Koh Phi Phi, a devastatingly beautiful island of limestone cliffs, lush jungles and brilliant turquoise waters. Sample some of the island’s epic nightlife this evening.

Day 7: Discover Phi Phi. Board a boat, and sail around the island, stopping off for snorkelling and kayaking amid the coastal nooks and crannies. You’ll then cruise across to Maya Bay, a true paradise of soaring cliffs, soft white sands and crystal-clear shallows.

Please note, the Thai Authorities may be restricting access to Maya Bay from June to October 2018. During this time your boat trip will head to other idyllic bays and islands in the area where you will be able to snorkel and swim.

Day 8: Koh Phangan Party Time. Koh Phangan is legendary for its epic beach parties, especially the Full, Half and Black Moon Parties which transform the island into a buzzing hub of dance, drink and music. Tonight, you’ll get to apply some glow in the dark paint, get your glad rags on and prepare for the biggest and best party of your life!

Please note: We try our best to plan our start dates to coincide with a Moon Party but due to changing circumstances in Thailand, party dates are subject to change and cancellation at short notice.

Day 9: Koh Phangan Chill Out. Visit a gorgeous secret beach and then chill out in the evening with some sunset drinks on the beach and a dinner with the group.

Day 10: Transfer to Koh Samui. For the 10-day tourers, this is where we part company and you’ll need to make your way from Koh Phangan back home or to onward travels. If you’re booked onto the extended 15-day tour, then it’s time to leave party paradise behind and hop across to Koh Samui.

Day 11: Ang Thong Marine Park. Strike out across the water and uncover the irresistible islands of Ang Thong Marine Park. Tonight, you’ll hit Koh Samui’s best bar for a lively night of dancing!

Day 12: Transfer to Koh Tao. Today, you’ll hop across to your final island of the tour, Koh Tao. Toast your adventures to come with some sunset drinks and then watch the stars appear with your group.

Day 13-14: Koh Tao. On day 13, the group will take a boat out to Koh Ngan Yuan, a tranquil island that is isolated from traffic. Bliss out on the beach and slip into the warm waters for some snorkelling. Day 14 is a completely free day for you to do as you please.

Day 15: Tour Ends. Your tour ends today on Koh Tao. A return transfer is not included but is easy to arrange. Your guide will help you make arrangements for this return journey.
