Thailand Intro - West

It's hard not to be sinful in Bangkok. Lustful over steamy street food, wrathful over persistent crowds, slothful in the heat, and proud because you're there. But that doesn't mean you're damned for good. Just pack your bags and head from Bangkok to the heavenly Thai islands. This short trip takes you there and stops at an exceptional national park, some bustling markets and a majestic cave along the way. It's the best way to get from Bangkok to the islands.

Day 1: Bangkok

Bangkok’s crooked alleyways and half-baked buildings are as fascinating as they are confusing. Get to know them before you meet you Guide and fellow passengers. Tonight we’ll go for dinner and then drinks at a sky bar.


Day 2: Bangkok to Chumphon

This morning we drive to the bustling Makleong Railway Markets. Next we continue our drive to the Phraya Nakhon cave before taking a long tail
boat around a coastal peninsular. Later we head to a beach near Chumphon for some beachside fun. 


Day 3: Chumphon to Khao Sok National Park

If you're an early riser, get up for sunrise and a swim at the beach. After breakfast we'll make our way to Khao Sok National Park. Here we’ll grab a boat, swim in clear waters and look out for exotic wildlife. Afterwards head to The Riverside Cottages to spend the evening relaxing, unwinding and getting involved in the activities they have on offer.


Day 4: Khao Sok National Park to Phuket

This morning there's the option to hike in the national park. You'll be rewarded at the end by a swim in a lovely waterfall. After lunch we start making our way to the islands. We drive straight to Kata Beach, Phuket. After check in join your Guide for dinner and farewell drinks.
