DAY 1 - Arrive Phuket

Phuket

8-days of exotic lands and those much hyped perfect Thai beaches sit ahead of us. The high-on-life vibes will be inevitable as we join forces in Phuket, start getting acquainted and allow ourselves to start slipping into island time. Hotel hangs and pool time will be high on the agenda. 

Stay

Sawaddi Patong Hotel (or similar)

DAY 2 - Phuket

Phuket

Well good morning explorers, it's your first full day so time to get movin' and shakin'. If you'd rather take to Phuket Town and admire the Chinese influenced local architecture. Swing high or lay low, the choice is entirely yours. The bright lights and wild antics of Bangla Road can take things up a notch this evening!  

Stay

Sawaddi Patong Hotel (or similar)

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Experience the colourful energy of Phuket's famed Bangla Road

DAY 3 - Phuket to Koh Phi Phi

Phuket

It's day three and 'mai pen rai - don't worry, be happy' is now pretty much the group mentality. Enjoy a lazy breakfast and catch some rays before we hit the Andaman Sea in search of one very famous beach... 

Koh Phi Phi

Arriving in Koh Phi Phi will leave you in a daze of love and happiness. More scenic than your wildest dreams, this island is home for the next few days. Glorious long salty days, balmy nights and endless ocean explorations are calling. Dine on the herb-filled rice salad with grated coconut that is khao yam, watch the sunset from Koh Phi Phi's highest vantage point or stroll postcard beaches alongside playful monkeys. Definitely an evening you won't be forgetting in a hurry.

Stay

Bayview Hotel (or similar)

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Watch the sunset over Andaman Sea from the highest viewpoint on the island

  • Cap off the sunset with a relaxing beachfront dinner

DAY 4 - Koh Phi Phi

Koh Phi Phi

The island is your playground and the day is yours to do whatever your heart desires. We're recommending our Day on the Bay Free Time Add-On - the perfect mix of island hopping, swimming and chillaxing. Afterwards, squeeze in one last beachside stroll with the flickering island lights as your backdrop, soaking up the island sounds and Pad Thai smells... this is what we call living.

Stay

Bayview Hotel (or similar)

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Spend the day swimming, snorkelling and dancing through Phi Phi's stunning seascape

    1700THB

DAY 5 - Koh Phi Phi to Krabi

Koh Phi Phi

Although we're leaving Kho Phi Phi and heading to mainland Thailand today, our salty seadog spirit won't change a bit. The exotic paradise of Krabi is calling our names, and who are we to resist...

Krabi

This afternoon we'll soak in the small town feels of Ao Nang. Friendly locals, massage haunts, local markets and seaside cocktails can perfect your day like kaffir lime to a mojito. 

Stay

Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort (or similar)

DAY 6 - Krabi

Krabi

Back on the Thai mainland we'll take in the island vistas from the charming setting of Krabi. Today you can opt for a speed boat cruise of Phang Nga Bay to see the famous James Bond Island. Local markets, cheap massages & sunset cocktails can reward us from our adventurous day out.

Stay

DAY 7 - Krabi

Krabi

Rise and shine, you have a full free day to make the most of everything Krabi has to offer! Maybe explore the giant rainforest-covered boulders of Phi Phi, chillax on Railay beach, or take advantage of the optional rock climbing activity. Tonight is our last night together as a Contiki collective; best organise a team dinner and have one last evening of mischief.
