Phuket

Long, lazy days spent relaxing on stunning, palm-fringed beaches awaits; Phuket is paradise on earth, as colourful as it is cosmopolitan.

There’s plenty to explore; from the Similan Islands, counted among the 10 most interesting dive areas in the world, to the famous James Bond island in Phang Nga Bay and Patong’s exciting nightlife on Bangla Road. Phuket offers the perfect destination for some winter sun and a spot of culture. Venture to the shimmering temples, visit colonial mansions and even see elephants coming down to the waterfront to cool off in the waves.

Koh Samui

Known as Thailand’s most dynamic chameleon, Koh Samui is a cosmopolitan melting point of experiences and sensations; from palm-fringed shorelines and lush rainforest to cultural sights and delicious cuisine.

It’s an easy island to explore; travel along the one main road to see stunning beaches and resorts, all with their own unique identity. The more active traveller can enjoy a range of island activities including kite surfing and quad biking while culture vultures can visit the Big Budda, Koh Samui’s most prominent landmark situated in the north of the island. We also recommend paying a visit to the Fisherman’s Village in Bophut; a great place for evening dining and a spot of shopping.
