Bangkok is an enthralling destination overflowing with cultural attractions, excellent shopping opportunities and mouth-watering cuisine to rival anywhere in the world. No trip to Thailand would be complete without a visit to this bustling, eclectic and mysterious metropolis. A short flight and boat ride will take you to your next destination - Koh Tao - known locally as Turtle Island. This small and unique island is a gem to explore. White sandy beaches, chill-out bars, great seafood and amazing scuba diving, your experience here will last a lifetime. Take a boat back over to Koh Samui- a cosmopolitan melting pot of experiences and sensations. Palm-fringed shorelines and granite peaks cloaked in virgin rainforest offset cultural sights and delicious, varied cuisine. From relaxing to active, spiritual to lively, we love the choices Koh Samui has on offer.
- The perfect combination of city and beach
- Bangkok is the gateway to the rest of Thailand
- Only a one hour flight from Bangkok to Koh Samui

Start your Journey
A trip to the city wouldn't be complete without a spot of shopping; from swanky upmarket boutiques to authentic market stalls, there is something for everyone. We recommend visiting one of the floating markets and immersing yourself in the chaos as the locals cook and sell you various treats as they paddle by. Another great way to see the city is by Tuk Tuk; hire a driver and spend a few hours hopping between the many stunning temples. For the best view in the house, head to a roof top bar and take in the sparkling scenes of the city at night time.
Possibly Thailand's best kept secret, Koh Tao is an island of many delights. Expect beaches of golden sands, secluded bays and an exciting scuba diving paradise. The island has some of Thailand's most gorgeous beaches and bays, in particular Haad Tien (Rocky Bay, Sairee beach and Tanote bay.) The waters are crystal clear, making them ideally suited to swimming and snorkelling as well as diving.
This itinerary includes five wonderful nights at The Beach Club by Haad Tien in an Ocean Balcony room. Comprising of two resorts in one you can have the best of both worlds, with the Haad Tien Beach Resort, offering boutique private villa accommodation, while The Beach Club is a stylish and vibrant retreat offering rooms that are comfortable yet luxurious, with great views of the beach and bay. Whether you're staying at the Haad Tien Beach Resort or The Beach Club feel free to roam around both resorts to sample the facilities at either one of these beautiful properties.
Koh Samui has the added benefit of being both cosmopolitan and a relaxing and beautiful destination where you can experience the serenity of temples such as Wat Khunaram or mill around beaches throbbing with activity, or even find isolated stretches of peaceful white sand. We recommend spending four nights or more here to truly relax and unwind on the blissful beaches.
