From kayaking through mangroves and caves to sampling traditional street food, this trip will immerse you in the riches that southern Thailand has to offer. Starting in Bangkok, head south to Khao Sok Lake where you’ll stay in a floating raft house and experience a wildlife boat safari – possibly spotting a sun bear if you’re lucky. Snorkel in the Andaman Sea, embark on a sunset cruise and explore the hidden lagoon on Hong Island before some well-earned relaxation in Koh Phangan and Koh Samui. Cap off your island-hopping adventure with a farewell group dinner under the star-studded sky. Please note that our SUBLIME SOUTHERN THAILAND - SUMMER itinerary is only available between 2 May - 23 September, 2023.

Elegant, understated and right in the heart of Bangkok’s main sights, this boutique hotel ticks a lot of boxes. Rooms are colonial-chic without the clichés, there’s an outdoor pool overlooking the Chao Phraya River, and the Riverside Bar makes the most of the twinkling waterside views.
Staying in a floating raft house on Khao Sok Lake is a truly memorable experience. The hotel is set against the beautiful backdrop of the oldest tropical evergreen rainforest in the world, providing spectacular views. You can swim and kayak directly from the resort.
With a rooftop infinity swimming pool, spa and fitness centre, this stylish, ecofriendly resort offers a variety of high-class amenities for a luxurious stay. Take a walk through the lush tropical gardens on site before cooling off at the most popular beach in Krabi, just a few minutes away.
Koh Phangan is all about two things: the beach, and having fun. And this beachfront boutique hotel puts two big ticks in those boxes – its slink outdoor pool not only overlooks the beach (you can step right out onto the sand), but its bar doubles as a swim-up and has “swing-up”, with swings for seats.
A sprawling, multi-level outdoor infinity pool; pristine beach, shaded by coconut palms; lush, tropical landscaping; zen-chic rooms, decked out with beautiful rattan furniture – this is the ultimate Thai island resort.
