Destination info

Your journey begins in Bangkok before continuing through Cha Am, Sam Roi Yot before travelling to the famous Thai islands of Koh Tao, Koh Phangan and Koh Samui.

 

The Kingdom of Thailand, with a population of 65 million people, is located in the heart of Southeast Asia and shares borders with Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia and Myanmar. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty complemented by impressive architecture, including striking temples. The country is also well known for its appetising food and the people renowned for their friendly manner.

  • Location: Bangkok

Day One: Arrive in Bangkok
Today you'll be personally met on arrival at Bangkok airport by our friendly co-ordinators. They will take you to your hotel. Depending on when you arrive, you can relax or explore this exciting city. We will arrange a welcome dinner the following evening. This is a great opportunity to have fun, make friends with your fellow travellers and get to know the co-ordinators.

 

Overnight in Bangkok.

 

Day Two: Tour of Bangkok
Meet the staff at the hotel lobby at around 9am for a welcome chat and brief introduction of your experience. This is a great opportunity to meet fellow travellers and get those questions answered by our team. Once the talk has finished we will walk through bustling Bangkok to our first stop on the tour - the Grand Palace.

 

The Grand Palace is the most sacred of all landmarks in Thailand, all Thais must visit the Palace at least once in their life to pay respect to their most revered monarch, there is also a saying that you have never truly been to Thailand unless you go within the walls of the Grand Palace, so a great way to start your tour. The Grand Palace is not included in the tour and costs 350 baht. If you do not wish to go into the Palace there is a small market nearby selling all kinds of souvenirs and street food. After the Grand Palace you will stop for lunch for an hour or so before setting off towards Wat Arun or The Temple of Dawn which is a quick stop over the Chao Phraya river. This temple offers great views of the city – at a price, as the view requires a slight climb up some ancient steps!

 

Crossing the river again, a short 5 minute walk will bring you to Wat Po or The Reclining Buddha. Here you can walk around the statue and partake in some of the rituals which are said to bring you lots of good luck. You will then head back towards Khao San Road and your hotel, to either rest or go shopping in and around the Khao San area where almost anything is sold and at very reasonable prices - just remember to meet your team around 8pm for your welcome meal and continued merry making within Khao Sans’ infamous night scene.

 

Overnight in Bangkok, breakfast included.

The country is also well known for its appetising food and the people renowned for their friendly manner.

  • Location: Cha Am and Sam Roi Yot

Day Three: Cha Am
At around 10am you will leave your Bangkok hotel and make the two hour journey south to Cha Am, a resort boasting Thailand’s longest white sand beach, in Phetchaburi province. Here you will have the afternoon free to chill out on the beach.

 

In the evening your co-ordinator will take you to Cha Am’s busy night market which sells everything from noodles to puppies. The market begins to wind down just before midnight but many of the stalls selling food and drinks often stay open until dawn.

 

Overnight in Cha Am.

 

Day Four: Sam Roi Yot

Get ready for a packed day’s activity in Khao Sam Roi Yot or “The Mountain of Three Hundred Peaks” - a coastal national park around 60km South of Cha Am. The park is home to over 300 species of birds as well as the rare Serow, a goat/antelope like mammal that can sometimes be seen near the park headquarters.

 

The day will begin with a trek through the forests and caves that surround the Limestone Mountains rising from the Gulf of Thailand. You will also visit the mangrove forests and take a boat trip to view the mountains from the sea, and perhaps even see some of the dolphins that live in the waters of the park.

 

Overnight in Cha Am.

The country is also well known for its appetising food and the people renowned for their friendly manner.

  • Location: Koh Tao

Day Five: Travel to Koh Tao
Expect an early start as the coach for Chumphon, from where the ferry leaves for Ko Tao, leaves at 8am. You should arrive in Koh Tao at around 2pm.

 

Koh Tao translates as “Turtle Island” and is situated between Suratthani and Chumpon in the Gulf of Thailand. Serving first as a stopping point for fishermen and later as a prison, the island did not begin to develop as a tourist destination until the 1980s and remains less developed than islands such as Koh Samui and Phuket.

You will be staying on Sairee Beach, a 1.7km long stretch of soft white sand and shallow turquoise water.

 

Overnight on Sairee Beach, Koh Tao.

 

Day Six: Island Tour
Today you will take a boat ride around Koh Tao with frequent stops for snorkelling in the clear waters. The Tour ends on the tranquil Koh Nangyaun, three tiny islands connected only by a strip of sand.

 

Overnight on Sairee Beach, Koh Tao.

 

Days Seven to nine: Koh Tao
No activities are scheduled for these days so you have the freedom to enjoy the tropical island in your own way. Your coordinator will be able to advise you what to do in your free time.

 

Snorkelling is a favourite activity for many visitors to Koh Tao and, if you didn’t have enough of it on your boat trip, fins, snorkels and masks are readily available for hire all over the island and coast at a cost of around 100 Baht per day. Head East or North to explore the rocky coves and even a shipwreck or two. Visitors between March and May might be lucky enough to catch a rare glimpse of a visiting 40ft Whale Shark, but if not, the coral and tropical fish more than make up for it. If you want a more adventurous underwater experience many companies offer diving trips for beginners.

 

Onshore there are numerous activities, such as yoga and hiking, open to visitors.

 

Two nights on Sairee Beach, Koh Tao.

Today will start with an early morning transfer from Koh Tao to party island of Koh Phangan (travel time approximately 2-3 hours).

 

Koh Phangan is famous for its full moon party which is held on full moon night every month. This famous beach party brings thousands of party lovers to the island each month. If you miss the full moon, don’t worry as the island has half moon parties and black moon parties! There is always some form of party going on! At all other times, the island is pretty chilled out. You can relax on the stunning white sand beaches, trek through the jungle or snorkel in the clear blue water.

 

Overnight on Ban Tai Beach, Koh Phangan

Day fifteen to Sixteen: Koh Samui

Your last few days will be spent on Koh Samui.

What were the highlights of your trip?

Having an amazing tour guide who was able to advise us on the best places to visit in our free time and organising other trips for us. I loved the trekking in Sam Roi Yot, although 1 trek was enough and I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the beach whilst the rest of the group went on the second trek. The snorkelling trip in Koh Tao and the Amg Thong national marine park in Koh Samui were my favorite days.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. You don't need to take more than 1 pair of trousers, a long sleaved top/jacket will not be worn due to the humidity. You dont need to take a padlock or waterbottle. Think wisely about what you do take with you as you will be carrying it on your back and toiletries like suncream are easily available to buy from everywhere you go. 2. Try not to have too many late nights and get too drunk as this will spoil your next day. You are going travelling to see what a country is like and not to spend the whole time hungover. It will ruin your experience. I didnt drink any alcohol or eat any meat whilst i was out there and came back feeling very healthy and detoxed! 3. If you have a sensitive stomach like myself try to avoid meat as I usually get poorly from meat abroad. Its very easy to eat as a vegetarian and you can change any of the dishes to include mixed vegetables and tofu. Spending the day with diarrhea when toilets arent accessable (on a boat/day trip trekking) and are Thai, isn't very nice!

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. Bring less clothes than you need, you can always wash things and you will buy stuff while you are out there 2. Do your research! You don't want to miss out on an experience just because you didn't know it was there. 3. Don't be afraid to go it on you're own. That way you get exactly what you want from the trip and you can put your needs/wants first.

What were the highlights of your trip?

All of the islands add something different to the trip. Bangkok was so much fun as it was so busy and hectic but Koh Tao couldn't be more relaxed and gorgeous! Met some amazing people and had lots of fun on the days and the nights - the islands have so many great beach bars too. Highlights were probably the national park - there were so many monkeys! elephant trekking and snorkelling.

if you have a few spare days come back and shop at bangkok if possible at BKK Mall - 7 floors! pack mosquito cream and repellent - the bungalows in koh phang yan were especially bad for bites. Wear extra suncream when snorkelling!

What were the highlights of your trip?

The trip was genuinely amazing. Our tour guide was awesome and was more than happy to come out with us everynight and give us a proper Thailand experience. She would always go out of her way to ensure the activities we wanted to do could be organised.

Personally I thought that elephant trecking and the day in the national park were my highlights, although everyday we did an activity which could have topped most previous holidays.

Make sure you take a credit card or bank card just in case.... A few people in our group didnt take one with them and they struggled massively when it came to booking transportation from koh samui back to bangkok.

Be willing to get involved with your group... We were lucky enough to spend our trip with an awesome group of people and by wanting to get involved with them, you get much more out of the trip.

Dont worry about anything, most foregin countries have a bad reputation, but once you are there, the rumours couldnt be more wrong.
