Combine an exciting city break with beachside bliss on your trip to Thailand with this Bangkok and Koh Samui multi centre holiday.
Reap the best of both worlds with a lively exploration of Thailand’s vibrant capital and ultimate relaxation and indulgence on the sandy shores of Koh Samui. It’s the perfect trip for a summer break away, as Koh Samui’s wet season doesn’t start until October to November. That means your trip will be blessed with plenty of sunshine.
Bangkok is a high energy, busy city that will keep you occupied. There are towering temples, top class shopping opportunities and mouth watering Thai fare that rivals food from all around the globe. Whether you sit in one of the city’s fine dining restaurants, or you grab a freshly made Pad Thai from one of the many street food stalls, you are in for a treat.
A quick one hour flight will take you from the capital’s bustling city streets to the palm fringed beaches of Koh Samui. The island is a diverse one, full of lush rainforests, stretching beaches and lively nightlife should you fancy a party or two. When it comes to activities, there are plenty of magnificent temples to explore, including the huge and golden big buddha temple that sits majestically on a tiny rocky island.
- Navigate the vibrant city of Bangkok on a traditional tuk tuk
- Fill your stomach with world class Thai cuisine in Bangkok
- Relax on the white sand beaches on the island of Koh Samui
- Admire traditional and beautifully crafted Thai temples
Start your Journey
Bangkok is one of Southeast Asia’s most famous cities. Home to grand palaces, golden temples and intrinsic shrines, the city is a haven for culture lovers. However, culture buff or not, any visitor will find a trip to the spectacular Grand Palace or the beautiful Emerald Buddha temple an enchanting experience. There’s also the famous Wat Arun temple to visit, which sits by the city’s Chao Phraya River and features a seventy metre glass spire.
A visit to Bangkok’s famous Khao San Road is another must. In the day, barter for clothing and gifts at the street stalls that line the road. In the evening, the road comes alive with energy and you’ll be awakened with bright lights and loud music. Khao San Road offers a great chance to sample some of Thailand’s famous street food, and you can grab a fresh and delicious Pad Thai for next to nothing.
For party lovers, Khao San Road is the place to be. It’s home to lots of late night bars and clubs that thump music until the early hours of the morning.
From the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, you’ll travel to the peaceful and beautiful island of Koh Samui in the South of Thailand. We recommend spending seven nights or more to make the most of your island getaway and to fully relax and unwind on the pale sand beaches.
An island full of versatility, a holiday to Koh Samui can be whatever you want it to be. Spend your days relaxing on the caster sugar white sand beaches with a fruity cocktail in hand or explore all the island has to offer on action packed excursions.
Like Bangkok, there are plenty of beautiful temples to visit in Koh Samui, including the stunning Wat Khunaram. Wildlife lovers may enjoy a trip to the local elephant sanctuary, where the elephants have been rescued from horrible conditions, such as life in the tourism or logging industry.
