TruTravels 18 day Island Hopper - Thailand

An 18 day tour which takes you from the wild Bangkok to the South East coast of Thailand to the South West coast, packed with fun activities and beautiful destinations


Day 1 - Arrival

When you land, don't worry, we pick you up at the airport, and take you directly to your hotel, Mango Lagoon. In the evening we go out on the infamous Khao San Road for drinks and for a delicious dinner.

Day 2 - Temples and River Cruise

Travelling through Bangkok via tuk-tuks then on private longtail boat along the Chao Phraya River, you’ll explore Bangkok and experience some of Thailand’s heritage. We visit two of the most prestigious temples – Wat Arun and Wat Pho, to see the very impressive giant, gold reclining Buddha statue. The rest of the day is free for exploring/shopping/eating, and in the evening we meet for dinner and drinks.

Day 3 - Thai Spa and Overnight Train

We treat you to a traditional Thai massage before we travel overnight on the train down south,to Surat Thani. We swap the hustle and bustle of Bangkok for the tranquil lakes of Khao Sok National Park – situated in the Surat Thani, which is a real eye-treat.

Day 4 - Khao Sok National Park

Heading to the awe-inspiring floating bungalows on a longtail boat whilst stopping along the way for a quick dip and dive, cliff jumping if the weather permits it and only if you are up for it. Try your hand at some kayaking or chill with a beer in a tube in front of the stunning backdrop of this limestone mountain range. We’ll be staying in floating bungalows on a fresh-water lake surrounded by rainforest which looks like something out of Jurassic Park!

Day 5 - Bottle Beach

We then travel to Koh Phangan by private mini bus ferry and head to Bottle Beach. Here you will be struck by the absolute beauty of a near secluded beach. You’ll also be treated to home-cooked, authentic Thai food, served to you right there on the beach! (Don't worry you get to choose what you want !) We highly recommend the banana daiquiris and fritters.

Day 6 - Thai Activities Day

We jump on a longtail boat to a neighbouring beach – you have a choice of activities in the afternoon (eg: Muay Thai, Archery), before arriving in Haad Rin, home of the Full Moon party.

Day 7 - Boats, Beaches and Waterfalls

We get to explore Koh Phangan by boat, stop to snorkel at some of the best spots and visit some nice beaches and a waterfall. The boat also has free lunch, free bar/buckets and music so is always a great day out. In the evening we’ll go for a group farewell dinner (on us!) then head down to the beach for drinks.

Day 8 to 11 - Island Hopping

We head over to Koh Tao on day eight and spend four days and three nights on this gorgeous island (recently voted best island in South East Asia on TripAdvisor). You will get the chance to add in some optional activities such as diving, water skiing, abseiling or wake boarding, alternatively chill on the beach and make the most of the free activities such as snorkelling, cliff jumping and trekking when visiting islands such as Koh Nang Yuan.

Day 12 to 14 - Water and Fire on Railay Beach

We leave Koh Tao and head to the west coast of Thailand with our first stop at Railay Beach. It is still part of the mainland but cut off by mountains so the only way to get there is by boat. Again more chance for water activities throughout the day time as well as enjoying the evening fire shows with a few cocktails by night on the sand…

Day 15 to 17 - More Island Hopping in Koh Phi Phi

The next two days are spent on the famous Phi Phi Island where we take you on a sunset boat trip around the islands, we stop at Maya Bay (Where they filmed ‘The Beach’), Monkey Beach and the Viking caves as well as some snorkelling in Phi Phi’s emerald waters. There’s a free lunch on the boat and swimming with the phosphorescence (glow in the dark plankton!) when the sun has gone down. Again you will have plenty of time to relax on the beach, explore the island, experience the nightlife and more optional scuba diving.

Day 18 - Farewell in Phuket

On the final day we head over to Phuket, Thailand’s largest Island as we draw to a close. Experience Phuket and Patong in a party Tuk Tuk to celebrate the end of an awesome trip. Your group leader can also help you plan your onward travels.
