Exploring Bustling Bangkok and Skyline Views

You wake up in Bankok and realise, there really is no place like it! Today we take private transport to the Grand Palace. Dazzling, spectacular, dripping in elegance and gold, the Grand Palace is the most famous landmark in Bangkok, so it’s only right we visit. We learn about Thai history and culture and take a look around. Afterwards we head back to the hotel, grab a shower and put on some fresh clothes, as tonight we’re heading to one of Bangkok’s most famous rooftop bars. Amazing views, delicious cocktails and your new travel buddies taking selfies with you in front of Bankok’s famous skyline. Well, it doesn't get any better!

Surrounded by limestone mountains, these emerald green waters are an absolute bucket list experience. We catch our long tail boat to our floating bungalows where we settle in for an amazing 24 hours in one of Thailand's most stunning places. This afternoon will be spent chilling, swimming in the lake and taking in the scenic views! Sunset kayaking to try and find some elephants is a must, so if you're up for it... So are we! Afterwards we’ll have dinner, enjoy the starry night sky, listen to the jungle at night, and head to bed already excited about a morning swim? ;)

Insta worthy shots for sure. We’ll also spend some time rock climbing limestone cliffs. Railay is super famous for rock climbing and it’s an experience not to miss! You’ll come away telling yourself: ‘I can’t believe I did this!’ In the evening we might hit up some of the best beach bars for a well deserved cocktail, go for a shopping spree or just chill by the pool!

Island hopping Phi Phi!

Good morning Phi Phi! We have a chilled morning before we jump on a speed boat and head out for a magical snorkelling trip. Sunglasses on, wind in your hair, we’re island hopping in style! We sail the turquoise blue waters and speed through the emerald green scenic views. Trust us, there’s nowhere else you’d rather be in the world. We hit the gems that are Pileh Lagoon and of course Maya Bay. We spend the afternoon snorkelling, swimming and having lunch onboard. Bliss. We watch the sun go down as the night comes alive, and the plankton shines bright.. maybe! ;) Sea turtle spotting is not guaranteed but who knows, you may get very lucky! The evening is open to relax, head out into the crazy Phi Phi nightlife, get a massage or go for an evening dip!
