Start your Journey
Destination 1: Phuket
Enjoy spectacular scenery and relax on the stunning palm-fringed beaches of Asia's most popular beach destination, Phuket. It would be easy to spend a week lazing on the beaches, exploring the local shops and restaurants or indulging in a spa treatment or two, but there is so much more to this dream destination. Why not take a speedboat to the spectacular Phang Nga Bay, just northeast of Phuket, where limestone cliffs jut dramatically from the emerald green waters?
Destination 2: Koh Samui
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. Mill around beaches throbbing with activity, or even find isolated stretches of peaceful white sand. We recommend spending eight nights or more here to truly relax and unwind on the blissful beaches.
