Day 4: Khao Sok floating bungalows. Khao Sok is an off-the-beaten-track gem. Pinch yourself to check you’re not dreaming as you arrive at your floating bungalow on a sparkling lake! Spend the afternoon kayaking and tubing before bedding down with the sounds of the jungle as your lullaby.
Day 5: Khao Sok tree house. Make like the monkeys and head deeper into the rainforest to a jungle treehouse today! Stop at a sustainable family farm to find out about local life, as well as a turquoise river, where we’ll have a dip or go tubing before arriving in our dreamy treehouse home!

Day 9: Koh Phangan to Koh Phi Phi. Another day, another dreamy tropical island! We’re swapping Phangan for beautiful Phi Phi today, staying in a gorgeous premium resort close to the beach. Cool off in the pool, hit the sands, or treat yourself to a Thai massage – you’re worth it!
Day 10: Phi Phi boat trip. Channel your inner James Bond today and head out on a private speedboat! Explore the breath-taking island of Phi Phi Le, snorkelling and swimming in the azure sea and visiting the unforgettable Maya Bay. Then freshen up ahead of a night in the beachfront bars.
Please note: There is a possibility we may not be able to enter Maya Bay at certain times of year due to Government closures.
