Itinerary

BANGKOK

Landing in Bangkok, we’ll meet you at the airport and take you to your guesthouse in the heart of the travellers district, Khao San Road. Meet up with your travel crew and get excited for the adventures to come.

BANGKOK

We’ll be experiencing Bangkok from a different angle this morning as we explore the city’s legendary canals, taking in the floating markets and local ways of life. We’ll then stop by the city’s most famous temples, travelling by tuk tuk through the wild and crazy streets, before heading out for some of the best nightlife in the world!

BANGKOK

If you love Thai food, you’ll be seriously into what comes next. This morning we’ll be learning the secrets of Thai cooking with a hands on class, before boarding our overnight train (with fully reclining beds) which will carry us south.

KHAO SOK

Prepare to feel like you’re having a pinch me moment as we make our way to our next stop. Winding through magical limestone cliffs on a traditional long tail boat, we’ll reach our floating bungalow home for the night in the dreamy Khao Sok National Park. You’ll then spend the rest of the day kayaking, tubing and monkey spotting.

KOH PHANGAN

Let the beauty of the Thai Islands work their magic on you as we arrive into Koh Phangan, the island most famous for hosting the legendary full moon parties. Upon arrival we’ll check into Sarana, our exclusive beach side bungalows that come complete with infinity pool, gym and yoga space.

KOH PHANGAN

With a full day to yourself, today you can do as much or as little as you like. Chill on the beach, by the pool or explore the island. This afternoon we’ll then be treating you to a traditional Thai massage.

KOH PHANGAN

Today’s all about exploring the very best of Koh Phangan, including some of the island’s best secret spots and lesser known beaches. You’ll spend the day sun bathing and snorkelling, then this evening we’ll tuck into a tasty beach BBQ.

KOH PHANGAN

All that beach time got you feeling a little lazy? We’ve got just the thing to get you moving - a Muay Thai boxing class or private yoga class. Tonight’s our last on Koh Phangan, so we’ll be heading out as a group for one last beach party!

KOH TAO

Saying goodbye to your Group Leader today, you’ll swap one island paradise for another as we travel to Koh Tao. Your pickup will meet you at the ferry and take you to your beach front resort for check in, then it’s back to school (but in a fun way) for a lesson in SCUBA diving theory.

KOH TAO

You’ll be putting your theory skills to the test this morning as you head out on your first open water dive. Heading to one of the islands many beautiful bays, you’ll undertake a shallow dive to go through some essential skills.

KOH TAO

Two further dives are on the agenda today, where you’ll reach a maximum depth of 12 metres. You’ll be concentrating on putting your new found skills into action, but don’t forget to also take time to appreciate the brightly coloured coral reefs, tropical fish, and perhaps even spotting a turtle or two.

KOH TAO

Diving down to 18 metres, today’s dive at the famous Chumpon Pinnacles will offer the opportunity to see bigger schools of fish, reef sharks and perhaps even a whale shark, depending on the season. A videographer will also be on hand to capture your new underwater skills.

KOH TAO

Checking out of our beach front resort this morning, you’ll have two final fun dives to complete as part of your dive package. Your unforgettable 13 day adventure will then come to an end.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Lots of people on our trips are travelling solo. But by doing our trip you’ll instantly be part of a group, so it’s a great way to meet others and make friends! Most of our accommodation is twin or triple share, so we will put you in a room with someone of the same gender.

The great thing about Thailand is it’s usually quite hot all year round, so it’s great to go at any time. There is a slightly higher chance of rain around October and November, however it usually only rains for an hour or so which can be a nice relief from the heat.

All your activities, accommodation, transport and most meals are included, so you’ll just need money for any extra meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least £300 / $500 spending money.

Most accommodations we stay at have free Wi-Fi available. Thailand’s network quality is often lower than you’re used to but you can generally connect and do basic stuff.

We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s generally quite hot in Thailand so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun. There is luggage storage at the airport or at some accommodations if needed. You’ll also need a small overnight bag for some nights of your trip.
