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 the region would be complete without a visit to this bustling, eclectic and mysterious metropolis. A short flight south to the island of Krabi, where glorious palm-fringed beaches and shallow, crystal clear waters and dramatic limestone cliffs welcome you. Take a short boat transfer from Krabi to Koh Lanta, and fall in love with the long stretches of white, coral-lined beaches fringed by lush mangroves and set against a backdrop of rugged mountains, Koh Lanta is a hidden island gem.

Start your Journey
Destination 1 - Bangkok
Asia's most distinctive city is a haven for those who are fascinated by palaces or golden temples, such as the incredible Grand Palace or the Emerald Buddha Temple. Prepare to be spellbound by the Wat Arun temple, found on the Chao Phraya River with it's 70 metre glass spire. We recommend spending three nights here to give you enough time to see the city's key attractions.
Destination 2 - Krabi
From dramatic limestone cliffs and palm fringed shores to culturally significant temples, Krabi is an island of diversity. This is a great base for island hopping with Phi Phi, Koh Lanta and Koh Yao Nai all within easy access. By day take a traditional long tail boat ride to the uninhabited offshore islands, snorkel in the crystal clear waters and take in the sights of the cultural temples. By night explore Walking Street for handicrafts, delicious Thai food and nightly entertainment. The diversity of Krabi is endless. We would recommend spending at least five nights here to take in all that Krabi has to offer.
Destination 3 - Koh Lanta
With a carefree atmosphere, Koh Lanta takes you back to the more authentic Thai way of life, away from the main hustle and bustle of some of the neighbouring islands. Once a backpacker's favourite, Koh Lanta has now become a luxury couples' hot spot. Let this island dazzle you and fall in love with this hidden island gem. Spend at least five nights here to fully relax and unwind and explore this beautiful unspoilt island.
