Day 1: Arrive in Bangkok & Welcome Night
You’ll be picked up from the airport & driven directly to our hotel near Khao San Road. Meet the rest of your group & your Ultimate Thailand tour guide later tonight for the welcome dinner. After your first taste of Thailand, we’ll explore some of our favourite Bangkok nightlife spots!
Day 2: Temple Tour & Cultural Bangkok
The next day our city tour begins with a boat trip through Bangkok’s busy rivers and canals. Our local guide will show you a different side to the city and tell you all about Bangkok’s interesting history, religion and culture. Explore the Temple of Dawn ‘Wat Arun’, Reclining Buddha Temple ‘Wat Pho’ and check out the shopping mall and markets.
Day 3: Overnight Train to Paradise
You’ll get to sleep in the next morning, then head to the markets for some shopping before jumping on the overnight sleeper train. Grab some dinner on the train before settling in (to your own bed!) for the night.
Day 4: Khao Sok Lake & Jungle
Today, we travel to paradise! We’ll jump on the traditional long tail boat to our floating raft houses hidden deep in the rainforest of Khao Sok National Park. Spot amazing wildlife, breathtaking scenery & learn about the history of the area. The clear water is warm all year round so take a dip, kayak on the lake or just chill on deck!
This evening, we’ll enjoy a tasty Thai dinner with fish caught for us fresh from the lake!
Day 5: Jungle Village
Wake up in your bamboo raft house to the sound of monkeys in the treetops. After breakfast, we’ll head on a trek through the jungle and explore one of the many hidden caves before we travel to our next stop, Khao Sok Jungle Village where we get to visit some baby monkeys.
On the way, we’ll stop off to spot baby monkeys in the jungle – they’re not shy!
Chill out at Jungle Village, where you’ll have the option to go river tubing (depending on the season). That evening we go to our favourite Thai Reggae Bar for dinner.
Days 6-7: Koh Phi Phi
Sunset Viewpoint & Fire Shows
Today we make our way to Krabi, where we board the ferry to Koh Phi Phi, home to ‘The Beach’, for two nights of tropical island fun! We arrive late afternoon and check in to our accommodation. That night we meet at our favourite beach bar for dinner and enjoy sunset drinks and music on the beach. We’ll take you to our favourite bars on the island, to watch the famous beach fire shows & to explore the awesome nightlife of Koh Phi Phi!
Maya Bay, ‘The Beach’
It’s time to explore the island! Start your morning with a swim at our accommodation before we head out on a boat tour of the Phi Phi Islands, to explore Maya Bay ‘The Beach’. We’ll chill in this hidden paradise before stopping off for a spot of snorkelling where you’ll see loads of amazing fish on the limestone reefs. That night we party at one of our favourite beach clubs!
Days 8-10: Koh Phangan
We leave Phi Phi and head over to Koh Phangan, home of the world-famous Full Moon Party. Arriving early evening, we’ll check into our accommodation located right next to the ocean, with crystal clear water and amazing sunsets. Tonight we relax with a few cocktails on the beach, watching the sun go down.
Our second day here is a free day to relax on the beach or explore Koh Phangan. Soak up the sun at the beach, go for a swim, go kayaking, snorkelling or check out some of Koh Phangan’s awesome island activities. Get launched into the air at WipeOut or go for a stroll through the town – there is heaps to do on Koh Phangan! Your group leader will help to arrange everything. That evening we enjoy more drinks and a night of fun!
Use the last day of the tour to plan the rest of your adventure in Thailand. Your group leader will help you arrange anything you need, whether you’re heading to another island or travelling back to the mainland. That evening we meet up for a farewell dinner & party on the beach at our favourite Koh Phangan beach bar! Your resort accommodation is included on the final night.
