With time in Bangkok you will get the chance to see what this nation’s capital has that brings visitors from all over the world throughout the year. With a modern city towering over the quaint villages and towns nearby, Bangkok is a sight to see in its own. Add in the numerous tropical paradises that you will get to experience, the amazing weather and friendly and welcoming culture, and you’ll never want to go home.

With most of our trip being off the coast of Thailand, there will be plenty of beaches throughout this trip to work on your tan, so bring at least one backup bathing suit. Travel by ferry through the crystal waters between the lush green islands of western Thailand while gazing at the robust ocean life and listening to the sounds of the waves and the breeze. Stay in some amazing hotels where the beach is only a short stroll away, explore intricate architecture that includes many homages to Buddha and indulge in the local fare that puts even the best American Thai food to shame.

February 14th, Day 2: Enjoy breakfast with the group today before we head to the airport for an hour flight south to Krabi. From Krabi we will board our private transportation to the small town of Ao Nang. This well-known rock climbing haven has some of the most stunning coastlines in the world. Ao Nang has gorgeous cliffs that flatten out to soft sand beaches and transparent waters.

Take a shot at kite surfing or head out for a snorkeling trip from Ao Nang. You’ll have the opportunity to sign up for a dive off the coast or to climb the stunning limestone cliffs that line the coast. You can always find your own heaven on the sand and sit back with a cocktail and a good book while the Thailand sun kisses your skin. If there is one thing this town does not lack, it’s beaches. The night is yours to explore with your travel mates.

February 15th, Day 3: Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and mingle with others to decide how you would like to spend your day on Ao Nang.

A couple hours on the open ocean will give you some of the best views of the many islands spotting the horizon in the distance. You may even get to see some of the ocean wildlife breaching above the water to welcome you to their home.

After our cruise through the Andaman Sea, we arrive in Koh Lanta and head to our accommodations for this evening to drop our bags and head off for adventure on this secluded and peaceful island. Spend the afternoon and evening cruising around old town and hanging with the locals, or indulge in the spectacular seafood that adds tons of appeal to this island. You could just spend the entire day and early evening at one of the spectacular and secluded beaches that border the island. Make sure to be back in time to meet the group for a beach BBQ to top off the day.

February 17th, Day 5: Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before heading out on your own to explore the island. Today would be a great day to sign up for a snorkeling or diving trip at Koh Rok. Koh Lanta is known to be surrounded by some of the most stunning dive spots in Thailand and Koh Rok is one of the most visited and sought-after snorkel and dive experiences in the world. All it takes is a short boat ride to get to tropical fish, colorful reefs and crystal-clear waters. If you are lucky, you may even run into a manta ray or whale shark cruising along the extensive anemone and coral covered reef.

February 18th, Day 6: After breakfast at our accommodations we will set off on another ocean cruise to our next destination. Today we arrive in Koh Ngai after passing through the steady current of the Andaman or our relaxing transfer between islands. We will head out to our accommodations to drop our bags and set off to explore. Touch base with your guide for the best places to go for whatever your adventurous side desires.

Here in Koh Ngai they have no shortage of long white sand beaches where you can stroll with the breeze in your hair and your toes massaged by the soft sand beneath. Kick back with a cocktail before heading out to grab even more delicious Thai seafood. Said to be the country’s most romantic island, Koh Ngai would be a great place to take your sweetheart out for a sunset dinner accompanied by some Champagne.

February 19th, Day 7: Enjoy some breakfast with the group before we head out on our snorkeling trip from Koh Ngai to Koh Chuek. Here we will swim out with trained guides who will show us the amazing Emerald Cave of Koh Mook. Here we will visit a beach not seen from the Andaman Sea. We’ll get to swim through the stunning cave of emerald green water to get to the secluded soft sand beach surrounded by stunning cliffs of jungle foliage after kicking around with some colorful fish.

After this tiresome day of exploring beautiful Thailand, take the evening off to mingle with the locals over some traditional Thai food and a cocktail. Chat with fellow tourists from all over the world while taking in as much of the carefree island lifestyle that surrounds you as possible. Tonight will unfortunately be the last here on the islands.

February 20th – 21st, Day 8 - 9: After breakfast at our hotel and a lazy beach morning we board the boat back to the mainland of Krabi where we will board our train back to Bangkok. After an overnight ride, we will land back in the center of Thailand civilization in its capital. Our guided tour ends here but yours does not have to. Ask us about extending the trip and we would be happy to help with a hotel in Bangkok that is sure to impress. If you are ready for home, board your plane back stateside and say goodbye to magnificent Thailand.
