DAY 1 - Arrive Phuket

Phuket

We'll meet up with our Contiki fam in sun-kissed Phuket, Thailand's largest island, and its most dizzyingly diverse. White & gold sands, cragged karst islands, azure waters and delicious Peranakan cooking make this the perfect launchpad for our Thai adventure.

Stay

Days Inn Patong Beach (or similar)

DAY 2 - Phuket to Khao Sok

Phuket

After breakfast we'll make our way towards the beautiful Khao Sok.

Khao Sok

This afternoon is yours to explore this lush National Park - swim, tube in the river, or simply relax and soak up all that natural beauty.

Stay

The Cliff and River Jungle Resort (or similar)

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Canoe Experience

DAY 3 - Khao Sok

Khao Sok

Today we're taking to the water to explore even more of Khao Sok with an included cruise. Drifting through the otherworldy scenery - the limestone cliffs, the shimmering lake, the soaring forest - we'll feel like we're in paradise.

Stay

The Cliff and River Jungle Resort (or similar)

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Cheow Larn Lake Cruise

DAY 4 - Khao Sok to Koh Samui

Khao Sok

We're transferring by land and ferry today to the legendary island of Koh Samui...

Koh Samui

Two days in Samui means plenty of time to get a taste of the place - and we don't just say that figuratively. Mangosteen & rambutan fresh off the tree, coconut & lime Panang curries & mango sticky rice are just some of the flavours on offer to pleasure your palate, in amongst ocean swims and island explorations of course.

Stay

Nora Chaweng Resort (or similar)

DAY 5 - Koh Samui

Koh Samui

Really, can snorkelling, swimming, soaking up the rays and sipping on fresh coconuts ever get boring? Hmm...no. But if you've got a taste for adventure, this glorious island offers plenty to keep hungry explorers enthralled. Use your free time to visit the mighty Wat Phra Yai temple with its 15-metre golden Buddha statue, see the super on-trend mummified monk at Wat Khunaram, or take an optional jeep safari.

Stay

Nora Chaweng Resort (or similar)

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Explore the wonders of Koh Samui with a Jeep Safari

DAY 6 - Koh Samui to Koh Pha-Ngan

Koh Samui

We'll be sad to leave Koh Samui behind, but Koh Pha-Ngan awaits...

Koh Pha-Ngan

Koh Pha Ngan is fringed by flawless beaches that offer endless days of island enjoyment. Grab a snorkel and hit the water for an island adventure, or just head to Haad Rin beach, our local slice of paradise, for some sea and sun.

Stay

Phangan Bay Shore (or similar)

DAY 7 - Koh Pha-Ngan

Koh Pha-Ngan

It's the second last day of our island adventure and 'mai pen rai - don't worry, be happy' is now the group mentality. Enjoy a lazy breakfast and dose up on Vitamin D the day may bring. It's our last full one together, so make it count.

Stay

Phangan Bay Shore (or similar)

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Full Day Cruise to Ang Thong Marine Park

    THB 1800

DAY 8 - Koh Pha-Ngan to Koh Samui

Koh Pha-Ngan

Our trip finishes today with a transfer back to Koh Samui.

Koh Samui

Thailand, it's been emotional, we're sad to say goodbye - but we'll never forget your beauty, your charm, and your ridiculously delicious food.
