Itinerary

01

Day 1: Bangkok

Arrive in Bangkok at any time.

02

Day 2: Bangkok/Surat Thani

Get to know Thailand's capital. Check out Wat Pho and the Grand Palace, get a Thai massage, or explore the klongs on a boat tour before an overnight train. Enjoy a street food crawl with the group and CEO either today or another day on tour.

03

Day 3: Surat Thani/Khao Sok

Get out and explore the natural beauty of the area. Opt to go hiking or swimming in Khao Sok National Park.
Khao Sok is a diverse area of natural beauty, a perfect place for people who want to hike and get out there in nature or those that just want to chill out in a hammock by the riverside watching monkeys take their afternoon bath.

Day 4: Khao Sok/Ko Samui

Travel across southern Thailand to Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand.
Lying off of Thailand's east coast in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui offers everything one could possibly want in a beach retreat: white sandy beaches, coconut palms, fresh seafood, and warm clear waters.

Take a public bus and ferry from Surat Thani and arrive at Koh Samui in the afternoon. The island is known for its magnificent beaches and party nightlife. Tour the island and its main sights or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful beaches.

It's become one of the major dive sites in Thailand, attracting beginners and professionals alike. The island today, though still remaining a unique paradise, caters to all tastes and budgets.

Brilliant adventure! Something more than the ordinary package tour holiday, as it gets you in touch with more of the traditional customs of the country.

The south was a lovely area of Thailand. the islands were stunning, especially Koh Tao. The Khao Sok National Park was breathtaking and I saw the most amazing sunset ever as we were travelling back across the lake by longtail boat.

I love Tui and she was wonderful in every way, just like a mother figure which I needed b/c I was sick with food poisoning. She even put tiger balm under my nose to revive me! I love her!
