Day 1

Airport Pick Up

Like on all of our trips, we can collect you from the airport when you land and take you directly to your hotel. The first day is just a check-in day so you have this freedom to explore the city and get settled in. Spend time bonding with your new group of pals before hitting the infamous Khao San Road in the evening for drinks.

Day 2

CRUISE BANGKOK

This day is spent taking in the sights of the capital on water as we travel by longtail boat along the Chao Phraya River. This is a great way to explore Bangkok and experience some of Thailand’s heritage. Then we head to two prestigious temples – Wat Arun and Wat Pho, to see the very impressive giant, gold reclining Buddha statue. The rest of the day is free for exploring. You may wish to indulge a little and do a spot of shopping so you can take advantage of the cheap prices! Then in the evening, we meet again for dinner, drinks and more group bonding.

KHAO SOK FLOATING BUNGALOWS

Take a longtail boat out to the amazing floating bungalows whilst stopping along the way to cool off with a quick dip and dive. Try out a spot of kayaking or simply chill with a beer in a tube in front of the breathtaking backdrop of this limestone mountain range. The freshwater lake is surrounded by rainforest and looks similar to something out of Jurassic Park! Truly an experience not to be missed!

Day 5

OVERNIGHT ON BOTTLE BEACH

An early start today as you enjoy a spot of breakfast before we head to Koh Phangan. When we arrive, we go straight to one of our favourite hidden gems, Bottle Beach. It’s quiet, beautiful, and only accessible by boat. If that doesn’t sound appealing enough, then to make it even better, we pretty much get the whole place to ourselves and stay in beach huts with the ocean at our doorstep. Relax here for the rest of the afternoon, dabble in beach activities such as volleyball, sunbathing or swimming. In the evening, we can enjoy dinner and some cocktails on the beach next to a campfire with our very own private fire show.

Day 6

MUAY THAI LESSON

Wake up to the calming sound of waves rolling on the beach. You will have a free morning to make the most of your surroundings and take it all in. You can go kayaking, play volleyball, top up the tan, go trekking to viewpoints or catch up on some sleep. In the afternoon, we are collected and taken to a local gym to try our hand at a bit of Muay Thai boxing, Thailand’s national sport. We then head to our awesome accommodation, a beach hostel where we will spend the final two nights. For those who fancy a few evening drinks, we can head to Haad Rin to explore some of the coolest bars around the island.

Island boat trip

Time to set off on a voyage around Koh Phangan. We'll arrive onto the boat with a welcome drink, and music as we set off to explore the amazing island. Throughout the day we'll stop off to do some snorkelling and check out some of the best beaches on the island to play some volleyball, have a refreshing dip in the sea and relax on the pristine beaches with a spot of lunch on us. This evening we'll head back to our hotel to chill out in the pool and get ready for a fun night with the group.

Day 8

The challenge & FULL MOON PARTY

In the day we head down to 'The Challenge' which is a huge inflatable obstacle course which is so much fun! Then in the evening we will meet in our hostel for a UV painting session to get us ready for the Full Moon Experience. We will take you to the best pre-drinking spots before hitting up the full moon party in TruTravels style! Those of you hard core enough to make it to sunrise (the best bit) may even get to join us at the after party which starts at 6am! No rest for the wicked.
*Please note the Full Moon Party is on a specific date each month so the activities can sometimes shuffle around, but you will not miss out on anything!*

Day 9

RELAXATION & MASSAGE DAY

Today is set aside for recovery. We felt you would probably want some chill time to recharge your batteries after the big night so the only planned activity today is a nice Thai massage and possibly a film at a local bar. Unless you are one of those crazy party animals that decided to join us at the after party!
