We’re going to Koh Phangan!
It’s a free morning so grab a lie-in, an early sunrise wander with a green smoothie or hit up the markets for one last bargain. Will we be sad to leave Bangkok? Of course but...beaches here we come! We catch a flight and ferry over to Koh Phangan where we’ll be spending the next few days. Koh Phangan is home to golden sandy beaches, some of the best sunsets in the world, so it’s only right we spend a few days here.

HITT-ING UP KOH TAO!
The early bird catches the worm! Or a sunrise HIIT workout, one or the other. Today we’re up early to squat, thrust and jumping jack all over the place. Taking energy to the next level, Thai and stop us! Afterwards, we have some time to chill before checking out and catching the ferry over to Koh Tao! Koh Tao in translation means turtle island and is home to some of the most beautiful oceans and marine life in all of Thailand. The afternoon is yours to chill for a few hours before we head to Sairee beach for sunset paddleboarding, you know the phrase sailing into the sunset? Yeah, that’s us. Afterwards, we wind down with some cocktails or your favourite healthy shake on the beach.

Sunrise, snorkelling & island hopping!
Grab a coffee as we’re up early for a sunrise pilates session. Time to stretch it all out TruFam, like the pilates pros you are… or not. Either way, it’s a great form of exercise and to get the endorphins flowing before we take you to the best spots on the islands, this time via boat. Oh yeah, James Bond-style. Spend the day snorkelling amongst the Nemos and Dorys of the ocean. You may even see a turtle or two! We trek up to the famous & jaw-dropping viewpoint of Koh Nang Yuan. The trek is around 30 mins and the perfect way to round off a bucket list ticking experience. We head back to the hotel where we wind down, exchange GoPro pics and prepare for our last full day together and trust us, it’s a sick one.

Our last full day is a juicy one! Our morning is spent taking a Muay Thai class. We practically mastered the sport, professionals. Just kidding, but you may have picked up a few moves from your first session, so put them to the test! Afterwards, we take a hike up to John Swuan viewpoint. The best viewpoint on Koh Tao, overlooking both the east and west coast of the island. VIEWPOINT GOALS. You’ve worked up a sweat so time to R-E-L-A-X! We head back down and enjoy the rest of the day unwinding at freedom beach. Yes, freedom. It’s our last night together, so we grab a group dinner before we say ciao, goodbye, au revior, Jur gan (that’s goodbye in Thai) and the night is ours for a taking, fancy cocktails at a beach bar? We’re there. Chill at the hotel? All good too. Whatever you fancy, your Travel Ninja is as flexible as an Olympic gymnast. Just go with the flow.
