Snorkel amongst beautiful limestone karsts, hike up to temples and sublime sunset spots, and dance all night.
You know that the travel clichés are the best. Sipping cocktails on a beach feels awesome and somersaulting off boats into clear water never gets old. Nowhere in the world does classic tropical island moments better than the Thai Islands. Go on epic snorkelling adventures amongst beautiful limestone karsts, hike up to temples and sublime sunset spots, and dance amongst the fire throwers at all night parties. Forget about going off the beaten track and indulge in stereotypical dreams of every traveller on this trip.
We spend 10 days exploring Thailand. We visit Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Ao Nang (Krabi).
