Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted at the airport by one of our awesome guides who will introduce you to the rest of the group. Today is a free day to get to know your group & get settled. In the evening we go out on the infamous Khao San Road for dinner & drinks.
See Thailand’s capital by the water as we travel by longtail boat along the Chao Phraya River, you’ll explore Bangkok & experience some of Thailand’s heritage. We visit 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 want to try some of the famous shopping in Bangkok as its known for being notoriously cheap. Remember to always try and barter with the street vendors, you can sometimes get as much as 50% off the original price! Then in the evening we meet again for dinner, drinks and more group bonding.
Try a traditional Thai massage before we board the sleeper train for the night; a truly authentic Thai experience. You’ll get your very own bed on the train, and it’s a great place to get to know the rest of your group. We travel overnight down towards the south of Thailand, swapping the hustle & bustle of Bangkok for the tranquil lake of Khao Sok National Park – situated in the Surat Thani province of Thailand. Watching the scenery change through your window is definitely something you won’t forget quickly.
Head to our floating bungalows on a longtail boat, stopping along the way for a quick dip at a couple of instagram-worthy locations. Try your hand at some kayaking or chill with a beer in a tube in front of the stunning backdrop of the surrounding limestone mountain range. We’ll be staying in floating bungalows on a freshwater lake surrounded by rainforest; it feels like something out of Jurassic Park!
Wake up early on the lake & enjoy a spot of breakfast before we board a ferry & head east to Koh Phangan. When we arrive, we go straight to the secluded paradise of Bottle Beach; our favourite beach in the world. It’s quiet, amazingly beautiful, only accessible by boat, and to make it better, we pretty much get the whole place to ourselves, staying in beach huts overlooking the ocean. Relax here for the rest of the afternoon, enjoy a bit of volleyball, sunbathing or swimming. In the evening we can enjoy dinner & some cocktails on the beach next to a campfire with our own private fire show. It doesn’t get much better than this!
A nice chilled wake up to the sound of waves rolling in on the beach. You will have a free morning to make the most of your surroundings. You can go kayaking, play volleyball, top up the tan, trek to view points or enjoy a lie in. We are picked up early afternoon and taken to a local gym, where you can try your hand at a bit of Muay Thai boxing, Thailand’s national sport. Afterwards, we head to our awesome accommodation where we will spend the final nights of the trip. It’s got a great bar, and atmosphere; ideal location to spend the evening.
Today we embark on a voyage around Koh Phangan. We spend the day taking in the amazing tropical island scenery, stop for some snorkelling at the coolest hot spots and visit Than Sadet waterfall (seasonal). You might think it couldn’t get any better but it does, we have a free bucket (+ paid bar onboard) & food throughout the day with music. The last night we take you to one of our favourite restaurants in town for a farewell dinner on us. It’s here where we prepare to say your goodbyes to your newfound friends as our adventure draws to a close, so we hit the beach bars for one last boogie to cap off a great week.
Check out is at 11am & our awesome staff are on hand to help you plan your next steps, whether it is continuing your adventure or heading back to Bangkok to catch a flight home, we will make sure you get to where you need to be.
