Day 1 – Arrival

When you land, we pick you up at the airport, and take you directly to your hotel. You have a free day to get to know your group and get settled. In the evening we go out on the infamous Khao San Road for drinks.

Day 2 – Temples & river cruise

Travelling in tuk-tuks then on a private longtail boat along the Chao Phraya River, you’ll explore Bangkok and experience some of Thailand’s heritage. We visit two prestigious temples – Wat Arun and Wat Pho, to see the very impressive giant, gold reclining Buddha statue.

The rest of the day is free for exploring, you may want to try some of the famous shopping in Bangkok as its known for being notoriously cheap. Remember to always try and barter with the street vendors, you can sometimes get as much as 50% off the original price! Then in the evening we meet again for dinner, drinks and more group bonding.

Day 3 – Thai spa and overnight train

Try a traditional Thai massage before we travel overnight on the train down south, and swap the hustle and bustle of Bangkok for the tranquil lakes of Khao Sok National Park – situated in the Surat Thani province of Thailand.

Day 4 -Khao Sok National Park

Head to our floating bungalows on a longtail boat whilst stopping along the way for a quick dip and dive. Try your hand at some kayaking or chill with a beer in a tube in front of the stunning backdrop of this limestone mountain range. We’ll be staying in floating bungalows on a fresh-water lake surrounded by rainforest which looks like something out of Jurassic Park

Day 5 – Arrive in Koh Phangan – Haad Rin

After Khao Sok we catch the ferry to Koh Phangan. When we arrive we are taken to Haad Rin and checked into our resort where we will get to spend the afternoon and evening chilling by the pool or exploring the town and beaches.  In the evening we will go out for dinner and hit up the full moon beach for a Koh Phangan style beachparty.

Day 6 – Shipwrecked Island Boat trip and night at Bottle Beach

On day 6 we will take you on our party boat around the island of Koh Phangan for snorkelling, waterfall visits, & much fun and games on the boat. We end up at Bottle Beach (one of our favorite spots in Thailand), a beautiful, secluded bay in the North of Koh Phangan where we can either chill out in the sea or on the beach or continue the fun into the evening with our own private beach party complete with cocktails, a camp fire, lanterns & music. You will spend the night in your own private beach bungalow and can wake up at your leisure to the sound of the waves breaking against the sand.

Day 7 – Bottle Beach day

Today you will have the morning to laze around on Bottle Beach, swim, play beach volleyball/football, build sandcastles or whatever else you want to do. We may even get our mate Jamie round for some optional wakeboarding in paradise.  Later we are picked up by our boat for another amazing scenic ride along the coast back to Haad rin for our final night in our beachside resort.

Day 8 – Today is checkout day…
For those who are continuing on with us, they will be checked into their new accommodation for the next leg of the adventure. For those who aren’t we can help you arrange onward travel or additional accommodation.
