What’s happening on Ultimate Thailand?
Day 1: Airport Transfer & Welcome Night
You’ll be picked up from the airport & driven directly to our hotel near Khao San Road. Meet the rest of your group & your Ultimate Thailand tour guide later tonight for the welcome dinner. After your first taste of Thailand, we’ll explore some of our favourite Bangkok nightlife spots!
Day 2: Temple Tour & Cultural Bangkok
The next day our city tour begins with a boat trip through Bangkok’s busy rivers and canals. Our local guide will show you a different side to the city and explain about Bangkok’s history, religion and culture. Explore the Temple of Dawn ‘Wat Arun’, Reclining Buddha Temple ‘Wat Pho’ and the shopping mall and markets.
Day 3: Overnight Train to Paradise
You’ll get to sleep in the next morning, head to the markets for some shopping before jumping on the overnight sleeper train. You’ll get your own bed on the train, so don’t picture being stuck in a seat all night.
Day 4: Floating raft houses & Jungle Tour
We jump on the longtail boat to our floating raft houses hidden deep in the rainforest of the Khao Sok National Park. See amazing animals, breathtaking scenery & learn about the history of the area. The clear water is warm all year round. Enjoy a swim, kayak on the lake or just chill on deck.
This afternoon we head out for a jungle safari. We cruise around the lake & go monkey spotting in the jungle. No fences, no gatekeepers. Just you and the wilderness!
That evening, after a tasty dinner with fish caught for us fresh on the lake, we cruise around the lake to spot hornbills and other nocturnal wild animals.
Day 5: Baby Monkeys & Jungle Village
Wake up in your bamboo rafthouse to the sound of monkeys in the treetops. After breakfast, take another dip before we get back on the longtail boat to our next stop, Khao Sok Jungle Village.
On the way we stop to feed baby monkeys. Watch out for them, they’re not shy!
Chill out at Jungle Village, where you’ll have the option to go river tubing (depending on the season). That evening we go to our favourite Thai Reggae Bar for dinner.
Sunset Viewpoint & Fire Shows
Today we make our way to Krabi, where we board the ferry to Koh Phi Phi, home of ‘The Beach’, for two nights of tropical island fun! We arrive late-afternoon and check in to our accommodation. That night we meet at our favourite beach bar for dinner, drinks and music on the beach as the sun goes down. Watch beach fireshows & explore the awesome nightlife of Koh Phi Phi.
Maya Bay: Follow Leo’s footsteps
The next day, sleep in or go for a swim before we take a longtail boat tour of the Phi Phi Islands, to explore Maya Bay ‘The Beach’ and Monkey Bay. We stop for some snorkelling and see loads of amazing fish on the limestone reefs. That night we party at one of our favourite beach clubs!
Island Life is Tough
We leave Phi Phi and head over to Koh Phangan, home of the world-famous Full Moon Party. We get here early evening & you’ll be staying right near the ocean, with crystal clear water and amazing sunsets. Tonight we relax and slurp cocktails as the sun goes down.
Our second day here is a free day to relax on the beach or explore Koh Phangan. Soak up some sun, swim on the beach, go kayaking or snorkelling. Get launched into the air at WipeOut or go for a stroll through the town – there is heaps to do on Koh Phangan! Your group leader will help to arrange everything. That evening we enjoy more drinks and a night of fun!
Use the last day of the tour to plan the rest of your adventure in Thailand. Your group leader will help you arrange anything you need. That evening we meet up for a farewell dinner & party on the beach at our favourite beach bar! Your resort accommodation is included on the final night.
It’s your adventure!
You’ve now seen the highlights of southern Thailand, but obviously there are so many other amazing places! Koh Tao and Koh Samui are most popular & only a short ferry ride away.
