You arrive in Bangkok late the first evening. The group meets for welcome drinks and a short information session at our guesthouse. Day 2 is when the action starts as we embark on our first included activity, a day trip to former capital of Ayutthaya where you’ll see some of the most impressive Buddhist temples in all of Thailand.
Day 3 we hit the road for the short journey to Kanchanaburi, in our private mini bus. Spend the next couple days soaking up the sights and sounds of the jungle, and enjoying Kanchanaburi’s incredibly laid-back vibe. Our group activity here is always a guest favorite, as we trek the jungle trails of Erawan National Park, home to some of the most stunning waterfalls in the world. Mid afternoon on day 6 we hop in a private mini bus to the train station in Nakhon Pathom where we board our overnight train to Surat Thani, our kick off point to Koh Phangan.
Our train arrives early in the morning on Day 7 in Surat Thani, Southern Thailand. From the train station we board a shuttle to the pier, then board the ferry for the ride over to Koh Phangan. Our driver will meet us at the pier and take us to our awesome beachfront accommodations! Spend the next few days exploring the island’s forest, waterfalls, beaches and viewpoints or take it easy and kick back in the sun and sand and prepare yourself for the madness that awaits you on day 9, the legendary Full Moon Party on Haad Rin Beach. We give you a day and night post-party for recovery, then we’re off to our next destination.
Day 11 we head to the pier for our journey back to the mainland. From the pier we board a bus that takes us to the stunning rain forest paradise of Khao Sok National Park. Our first day there we get the good vibes flowing as we pack up the coolers and hit the river for an afternoon of tubing. Day 2 you will spend one of the most incredible days of your trip exploring the beautiful Cheow Lan Lake. Grab a kayak and hit the water, then trek through one of the most bio diverse rain forests in the world to caves and stunning forest pools and waterfalls. Khao Sok is always a big crowd-pleaser.
We leave Khao Sok in a private minibus that takes us to the pier in Krabi, Southern Thailand. From there we board a ferry to our next destination, the Phi Phi Islands. Here you can enjoy world class diving and snorkeling, island hopping trips, viewpoint hikes, the jaw dropping Maya Bay made famous by the film “The Beach” (day trip included), and of course there is also the famous Phi Phi night life scene that rivals the best in all of SE Asia.
A short hop, skip and a jump away from the Phi Phi Islands is Railay Beach. We board a fast ferry from the pier in Phi Phi for the 75-minute ride to Railay Beach. Railay is actually made up of 3 beaches (well, 4 technically) that are surrounded by stunning jagged limestone cliffs. Boat is the only way in to this beautiful little paradise with no roads are cars. Known for it’s world class rock climbing and world class beaches, Railay is an supremely beautiful place with a unique, super laid back local culture.
From Railay we take a short 15-minute boat ride to Ao Nang where we catch a private minibus to the airport in Krabi. Rather than shave a day off your trip on the bus or train, we fly you back to Bangkok so we can enjoy our last night in Thailand together. Once in the big city we treat the group to a round of warm up drinks at our guesthouse, then we hit Khao San Rd for an epic send off party!
