West Coast Island Hopping in Thailand

On this tropical adventure we cruise between Thailand's idyllic islands in the southern Andaman Sea, spending time on Koh Yao Noi, Koh Lanta and Koh Hai as well as mainland Krabi. We have time to swim and snorkel in warm tropical waters against a backdrop of craggy limestone outcrops that are dotted through Phang Nga Bay. We can visit the secret Emerald Cave, ride an elephant through the jungle, and learn to cook a delicious Thai meal or simply relax on beautiful white sand beaches under the shade of a swaying coconut palm.

Tour Highlights

  • Bangkok - The spectacular Grand Palace and temple of the Reclining Buddha
  • Koh Yao Noi - Island life in picturesque Phang Nga Bay
  • Krabi - Beautiful beaches and limestone landscapes
  • Koh Lanta - Golden sand beaches and magical sunsets over the Andaman Sea
  • Koh Hai - Boat trip to the secret Emerald Cave

Why Book this tour
This trip to Thailand is a great way to escape our winter months. This is an excellent trip for first-timers to the country as it will give you a flavour of the culture in Bangkok but focus mainly on seeing the beautiful islands and beaches of the Andaman Sea in the south. You will be travelling using a mixture of overnight trains, public ferries and private buses really giving you a flavour of being in the destination, however plenty of free time is built in on the islands for you to fil as you please.
