Itinerary

01

Day 1: Arrive Phuket

We'll meet up with our Contiki fam in sun-kissed Phuket, Thailand's largest island, and its most dizzyingly diverse. White & gold sands, cragged karst islands, azure waters and delicious Peranakan cooking make this the perfect launchpad for our Thai adventure.

02

Day 2: Phuket to Khao Sok

After breakfast we'll make our way towards the beautiful Khao Sok.This afternoon is yours to explore this lush National Park - swim, tube in the river, or simply relax and soak up all that natural beauty.

03

Day 3: Khao Sok

Today we're taking to the water to explore even more of Khao Sok with an included cruise. Drifting through the otherworldy scenery - the limestone cliffs, the shimmering lake, the soaring forest - we'll feel like we're in paradise.

04

Day 4: Khao Sok to Koh Samui

We're transferring by land and ferry today to the legendary island of Koh Samui...Two days in Samui means plenty of time to get a taste of the place - and we don't just say that figuratively. Mangosteen & rambutan fresh off the tree, coconut & lime Panang curries & mango sticky rice are just some of the flavours on offer to pleasure your palate, in amongst ocean swims and island explorations of course.

05

Day 5: Koh Samui

Really, can snorkelling, swimming, soaking up the rays and sipping on fresh coconuts ever get boring? Hmm...no. But if you've got a taste for adventure, this glorious island offers plenty to keep hungry explorers enthralled. Use your free time to visit the mighty Wat Phra Yai temple with its 15-metre golden Buddha statue, see the super on-trend mummified monk at Wat Khunaram, or take an optional jeep safari.

06

Day 6: Koh Samui to Koh Pha-Ngan

We'll be sad to leave Koh Samui behind, but Koh Pha-Ngan awaits...Koh Pha Ngan is fringed by flawless beaches that offer endless days of island enjoyment. Grab a snorkel and hit the water for an island adventure, or just head to Haad Rin beach, our local slice of paradise, for some sea and sun.

07

Day 7: Koh Pha-Ngan

It's the second last day of our island adventure and 'mai pen rai - don't worry, be happy' is now the group mentality. Enjoy a lazy breakfast and dose up on Vitamin D the day may bring. It's our last full one together, so make it count.

08

Day 8: Koh Pha-Ngan to Koh Samui

Our trip finishes today with a transfer back to Koh Samui.Thailand, it's been emotional, we're sad to say goodbye - but we'll never forget your beauty, your charm, and your ridiculously delicious food.
