About Your Trip

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 Phuket, head north 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 Yao Yai. Cap off your island-hopping adventure with a farewell group dinner under the star-studded sky.

  • Our private vehicles have daily assigned seating, and every day they undergo deep cleaning of all surfaces.
  • Where possible, we use small/ boutique accommodation – this means fewer guests and reduced exposure to other travellers.
  • We require all accommodation providers to share protocols around the extra health and hygiene measures they are taking.
  • Included activities are exclusive to our group wherever possible, to minimise contact with others.
  • Covid-19 negative test results or vaccine certificates may be required. Please check the entry requirements for the destination you are travelling to. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
  • We recommend you confirm all guidance on official government sites and check that you are able to travel with your travel insurance issuer. Your travel insurance may be invalidated if you travel against government advice. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
