Day 1

Airport Pick Up

It’s the first day of your EPIC 16-day journey! We’ll pick you up from the airport. One of our Tru Ninja’s will be there to meet you! A TruNinja is what we call our tour guides, they go above and beyond, they’re super cool and edgy, and they can fix most problems lightning fast. We take you directly to our hotel and the afternoon is free to explore and get settled in. Grab some good wifi and update your insta story that you’ve made it to one of the greatest cities in the world. It’s a first night, so we’re taking you to infamous Khao San Road, one of the best spots in Bangkok! Grab a beer, get to know your new TruCrew it’s going to be a crazy 16 days.

CRUISE BANGKOK

We’re CRUISINGGG! We’re sightseeing the capital by water! We travel by longtail boat along the Chao Phraya River. The best way to explore to Bangkok and experience some of Thailand’s heritage. We’re heading to two prestigious temples - Wat Arun & Wat Pho! You’ll get to see the famous, super impressive giant golden reclining Buddha statue. Wat Pho real?! You got it! The rest of the day is for you to explore, grab a massage, overindulge on some delicious street food or hit up the markets for a spot of shopping. Have you even visited Thailand if you don’t own a pair of elephant pants? In the evening, we meet for dinner and drinks and see where the night takes us!

Massage & Overnight Train

Relax this morning, nurse that hangover. How? you ask. Well, we’re going for a traditional Thai Massage! Destress, get rid of all those knots from sleeping uncomfortably on the plane and melt away all of life’s worries. We travel overnight on the train down south where we swap the hustle and bustle of city life in Bangkok for the tranquil lakes of stunning Khao Sok National Park - situated in the Surat Thani Province of Thailand. The overnight train is one of the best ways to travel in Thailand and is an experience in itself!

KHAO SOK FLOATING BUNGALOWS

Today we’re up and out; we take a longtail boat out to our unbelievable floating bungalows. Khao Sok is known for its beauty, and our accommodation will not disappoint! On the way, we cool off with a quick dip and dive in. When we arrive to try out a spot of kayaking, relax, you’re in paradise. Sit back with a beer in a giant rubber tube. You’re in amongst a limestone mountain range, floating in a freshwater lake surrounded by rainforest. Are we in Jurassic Park? It sure damn looks like it. Minus the crazy dinosaurs obviously.

Day 5

OVERNIGHT ON BOTTLE BEACH

We’re up and enjoying a spot of breakfast before we head to Koh Phangan. And boy, have we got a day ahead for you! The ultimate TruExclusive! You won’t get this anywhere else. We’re taking you to Bottle Beach where we’ll spend the night! A hidden gem in Thailand, it’s quiet, it’s beautiful and only accessible by boat. The beach is pretty remote, so don’t be surprised if we have the place to ourselves! We stay in beach huts with the ocean at our doorstep. Relax here for the rest of the afternoon, gallivant around in the sea, or challenge the rest of the TruCrew to the ultimate game of beach volleyball. Whatever you fancy doing, it’s your day. In the evening, we enjoy dinner together. Cocktails are flowing, the suns going down as we sit on the beach campfire lit. Can this get any better? Yes! We have our very own private fire show!

Day 6

MUAY THAI LESSON

Wake up to the calming sounds of the waves rolling in onto the beach. Are you dreaming? Nope! This is your reality. Wake up in paradise, and the morning is free to spend as you please. Grab a kayak and get out on the water, top up that already golden tan or trek to the local viewpoint. Hey if you want a lazy morning and lay in, do that instead catch up on some zzz’s. In the afternoon, we are collected and taken to a local gym to try our hand at Muay Thai boxing. Thailand’s national sport. You might not be a natural, but you’ll deffo learn a thing or two! We then head to our next accommodation. A beach hostel where we’ll spend the next 2 nights. If you fancy a few evening drinks, your travel Ninja is there to take you out and show you the coolest bars in Haad Rin.

Day 7

Island boat trip

Time to set off on a voyage around Koh Phangan! Grab a welcome drink as we board the boat, and the music starts playing as we set off to explore the island. We know we know, we travel in style. Throughout the day we’ll stop off, grab the snorkels and mask and dive it! Thailand marine life is out of this world, so snorkelling is a must-do! We’ll check out some of the best beaches on the island. Play our favourite beach game of volleyball, take a dip in the sea or tackle a human pyramid on the sand with your TruFam. Whatever you fancy. In the evening, we head back to our hotel to chill out by the pool before freshening up for a fun night out. Yes, we said it we’re going out OUT!

Day 8

The challenge & FULL MOON PARTY

Wahooo who’s ready for a BIG DAY! We head down to ‘The Challenge’. A huge inflatable obstacle course situated here in Koh Phangan. Will you embarrass yourself, slipping and sliding everywhere? Probably but will it be worth it? 100%. Disclaimer: your cheeks may hurt from laughing so much. Spend the day running across giant inflatable balls, bounce off huge slides or just sit back and watch as everyone else falls in. You may get into the swing of it ;) The ultimate adults playground. In the evening, we meet in our hostel for the ultimate UV painting session to get us ready for The Full Moon Party. It’s legendary, it’s spectacular, and you couldn’t be with a better crew. We take you to all the best pre-drinking spots before hitting up The Full Moon Party. If you’re hardcore enough to make it to sunrise (It’s the best part) join us at the after-party which starts at 6am. You know the old saying.. No rest for the wicked aye?

*Please note, The Full Moon Party is on a specific date each month so our activities can sometimes shuffle around, but don’t stress, you won’t miss anything!)

Day 9

RELAXATION & MASSAGE DAY

It’s been a wild few days and today is set aside for recovery. Chill, recharge, rehydrate. It was a big night, so the only thing we have planned today is a relaxing Thai massage and possibly winding down in the evening with a film at a local bar. If you were one of the crazy 10/10 party animals who only just made it in for breakfast, spend the day in bed, catch up on some sleep or grab an amazing 7/11 toastie. The ultimate hangover cure.

HEAD TO KOH TAO

Today we jump aboard a short ferry and head over to Koh Tao. Some call it ‘Turtle Island’. We call it heaven on earth. We’ll spend the next 2 nights here, Koh Tao has recently been voted ‘Best Island in South East Asia’ so trust us when we say we’re taking you to the best of the BEST. We stay only 5 minutes from the beautiful Sairee beach. Oooo yeah. We love a beach. Once checked in, settle in before we meet up for dinner and a few drinks.

KOH NANG YUAN DAY TRIP

Today we grab a boat ride from Koh Tao across to the adjoining island of Koh Nang Yuan. It’s postcard-worthy, facetime your mum from the top of the viewpoint worthy. It’s one of the best spots in the whole of Thailand! Have a snorkel in the Japanese gardens before we take on the trek up! The view out is spectacular overlooking the adjoining beaches and bays. Go on, get the ultimate insta snap here, hey our Travel Ninja is pretty much a professional and vogue photographer these days anyway. Afterwards, we head back to Koh Tao where we have a few hours before we meet for dinner and join the famous KOH TAO PUB CRAWL! Who loves a pub crawl? WE do! We take to the bars in our matching Koh Tao t-shirts. Ya know, been there, done that got the T-Shirt!

ACTION/RELAXATION

Today’s a free day! So if you went a bit too hard last night on the cocktails and your heads hurting a little.. Chillax. If you’re feeling fresher than a daisy on a summer’s morning, then get out and explore. Tanote Bay is one of our favourite spots on the island, and if you can get enough energy together to go, you won’t regret it! In the evening we jump on the night ferry over to the mainland where we’re picked up by our private minibus fitted with tunes & DVD player. We travel in style, baby. We head over to the west coast and onto our next stop. World-famous Phi Phi Islands!

PHI PHI ISLANDS

We’re in Phi Phi, beaches! Check into our accommodation before we take a trek up to the island’s viewpoint. Phi Phi is small, but once you’re here, you’ll never want to leave! You’ll go coconuts for this place! P.s try the coconuts, they’re delicious. It’s a bit a trek up to the viewpoint so grab some water, that 2000’s R’n’B playlist you made back home and let’s do this! In the evening we head out to the island’s lively nightlife. Ready to dance your socks off?! JK, We only wear flip flops in Thailand, duh!

Day 14

PHI PHI BOAT TRIP

Have you fallen in love yet? Well, imagine seeing the place Leonardo Dicaprio filmed ‘The Beach’ himself. Leonardo Dicaprio graced this very place with his presence. Ok, we’re drooling. Today we take you on a boat trip to explore the surrounding islands! First, stop Monkey Beach! We’ll get up close, but not too close of course to these cheeky monkeys and visit the beach that they inhabit. We stop at the Viking Caves before we swing past the entrance to Maya Bay Aka Once the set for our heart throb old Dicaprio. Lunch is included on the boat, and we finish the day watching the sun go down, ice-cold beer in hand. Perfection… the day, or Dicaprio? You decide.
