BANGKOK TO KOH SAMUI
Depending on whether you are continuing a previous journey from Bangkok or flying straight in from your home country, you will either fly down to Surat Thani - from where you'll take a bus and boat to the island, or fly straight to Samui airport - dependent on dates. Koh Samui is famous for its tropical climate and white sand beaches that possess plenty a bar and restaurant to enjoy your time in.
KOH SAMUI TO KOH PHANGAN
Koh Phangan is just a short hour and a half ferry from Samui and is renown for its Full Moon parties that it hosts once every month. If your trip does not fall on this day not to worry - there are jungle and waterfall parties on pretty much every night on this unruly lump of rock.
KOH PHANGaN TO KOH TAO
Now Koh Tao is often thought of to be the most scenic, as well as salient island for its diving - so if you're a big scuba fan this is the island for you. All types of fish, shark and octopus can be viewed on these reefs as well as the fairytale-looking bioluminescent plankton. If diving is not your thing or out of your budget, Tao can be the perfect place to tie up a hammock and relax on the beach.
KOH TAO TO SURAT THANI TO KRABI
Boat + Bus
After a quick ferry back to mainland Surat Thani you will hop on a coach down to Krabi. Krabi, again, is a coastal town and is popular for its white sand beaches as well as its clean and friendly hostels. Spend a day on paradise beach eating and drinking for next to nothing or jump on a tuk tuk and explore - the choice is yours.
KRABI TO KOH PHI PHI
From Krabi we'll organise a boat to carry you through the Indian Ocean to Koh Phi Phi. This is the littlest and seemingly most untouched island that gives you the best of both worlds. There's fantastic restaurants, markets and lively beach bars but also stunning natural beaches and untouched jungle walks. Frequented activities include snorkelling with the black tips at Shark Point, or hopping over to James Bond island or Maya Bay for a day.
KOH PHI PHI TO PHUKET
The largest island of all. Here you can spend your days swinging in a hammock below the palm trees and testing out the strip to meet some likeminded travellers. Alternatively try your hand at kite or paddle-boarding and end your trip with a final scuba before you embark back to Bangkok.
PHUKET TO SURAT THANI TO BANGKOK/ PHUKET TO BANGKOK
Bus + Flight
From Phuket you will travel by bus back to Surat Thani. You may have a night here or you can catch a plane straight away back up to Bangkok depending on available flight times. On the other hand we can see if we can arrange a flight up to Bangkok from Phuket - dependent on dates. Or alternatively you may be able to directly book your flights home from Phuket.
