Itinerary

01

Day 1: Arrive Phuket

8-days of exotic lands and those much hyped perfect Thai beaches sit ahead of us. The high-on-life vibes will be inevitable as we join forces in Phuket, start getting acquainted and allow ourselves to start slipping into island time. Hotel hangs and pool time will be high on the agenda.

02

Day 2: Phuket

Well good morning explorers, it's your first full day so time to get movin' and shakin'. If you'd rather take to Phuket Town and admire the Chinese influenced local architecture. Swing high or lay low, the choice is entirely yours. The bright lights and wild antics of Bangla Road can take things up a notch this evening, even a famous cabaret show!

03

Day 3: Phuket to Koh Phi Phi

It's day three and 'mai pen rai - don't worry, be happy' is now pretty much the group mentality. Enjoy a lazy breakfast and catch some rays before we hit the Andaman Sea in search of one very famous beach...Arriving in Koh Phi Phi will leave you in a daze of love and happiness. More scenic than your wildest dreams, this island is home for the next few days. Glorious long salty days, balmy nights and endless ocean explorations are calling. Dine on the herb-filled rice salad with grated coconut that is khao yam, watch the sunset from Koh Phi Phi's highest vantage point, or stroll postcard beaches alongside playful monkeys. Definitely an evening you won't be forgetting in a hurry.

04

Day 4: Koh Phi Phi

The island is your playground and the days are yours to do whatever your heart desires. Make time to visit THAT beach - it seriously won't dissapoint. Grab a camera and strike a pose; Leo may finally have won his Oscar, but this is YOUR movie moment. Do anything the alluring ocean has been distracting you from, or - what the heck - have another beach day, coconut in hand. Squeeze in one last beachside stroll with the flickering island lights as your backdrop, soaking up the island sounds and Pad Thai smells...this is what we call living.

05

Day 5: Koh Phi Phi to Krabi (Ao Nang)

Although we're leaving Kho Phi Phi and heading to mainland Thailand today, our salty seadog spirit won't change a bit. The exotic paradise of Krabi is calling our names, and who are we to resist...This afternoon we'll soak in the small town feels of Ao Nang. Friendly locals, massage haunts, local markets and seaside cocktails can perfect your day like kaffir lime to a mojito.

06

Day 6: Krabi (Ao Nang)

Krabi may look like the ultimate chill zone, but a wealth of adventure awaits those with itchy feet. March the 1260 steps to Tiger Cave temple (relax - it's no longer filled with tigers) and marvel at the beauty of Buddhism or shop up a storm of traditional Thai trinkets.

07

Day 7: Krabi (Ao Nang)

Rise and shine, you have a full free day to make the most of everything Krabi has to offer! Maybe explore the giant rainforest-covered boulders of Phi Phi, chillax on Railay beach, or take advantage of the optional rock climbing activity. Tonight is our last night together as a Contiki collective; best organise a team dinner and have one last evening of mischief.

08

Day 8: Krabi to Phuket

After one final morning in paradise it's back on the coach to Phuket where our paradise adventure comes to an end. Have one final love-in with your travel fam, then take our transfer either to the airport or back to our start hotel.
