Choose this tour because...

Island hopping among the heavenly islands of southern Thailand is very popular – come along and learn why.

In this tour, you will stay on three very different islands, each with their own charm; Koh Lanta, Koh Hai and Koh Mook. Here you will find gorgeous, alabaster beaches, stunning views, tall, vertical mountains, small local communities, as well as rapid speed boats and traditional long boats, transporting you from one island to the next.

On this tour, you can slow things down, giving you time for all the things you can’t do in your daily life. Here you can lie back in a lounger, take in the baking sun, bathe in the clear, warm water, immerse yourself in a good book, enjoy a game of cards or spoil yourself with a massage. If you should feel that it’s time to make something happen, the islands also boast great options for both activities and excursions.

As a finishing touch, you also have option to combine this tour with a stay in Bangkok.

Day 2: Arrival in Krabi – Koh Lanta Yai
Day 2: Arrival in Krabi – Koh Lanta Yai

You arrive at Krabi Airport, go through immigration and pick up your luggage. A driver awaits you in the arrivals hall, and you are driven to the Ban Hua Hin pier, where you take the car ferry to Koh Lanta, east of the Phi Phi islands. Koh Lanta consists of Koh Klang, Koh Lanta Noi, Koh Lanta Yoi and 50 smaller islands. You will be staying at the popular island of Koh Lanta Yai, with its beautiful nature, including forests, tropical rainforests, and 9 wonderful, sandy beaches stretching across the west coast of the island, featuring excellent snorkelling opportunities.

After an approximately 20-minute boat ride, you reach Koh Lanta. The driver takes you to the hotel located between Klong Nin beach and Khlong Toab beach. 3 nights in calm and relaxing surroundings await you here.

Overnight stay Rawi Warin Resort and Spa 

Days 3-4: Koh Lanta Yai
Days 3-4: Koh Lanta Yai

The days are spent at your leisure, and you can relax on the lovely, sandy Klong Nin beach, and bathe in its emerald waters. Beach bars and restaurants can be found along the beach, and delicious, local dishes are here for you to enjoy. If you go off the beach, you can find the small town by the same name, which offers a variety of restaurants to choose from, as well as ATMs, drug stores, clothing stores and souvenir shops.

Koh Lanta also offers interesting sights and activities. You could, for example, take a taxi to Lanta Old Town, on the east side of the island. This old port town is as if time has stopped, and you are quickly immersed in its calm atmosphere. The old district is also known as Sea Gypsy Village, where several centuries ago, the population settled along the coast in wooden houses built at sea. The Sea Gypsies rarely mingle with the regular population, and they have their own language, traditions and beliefs.

With Koh Lanta’s forests and tropical rainforests, the island is also an excellent place for hiking tours, and on top of that, some of Thailand’s best diving spots with coral, colourful fish, cliffs and caves. Another place worth visiting is the Khao Mai Kaew caves, where you can see both stalactites and stalagmites.

In the afternoon, you can take a walk along the beach and enjoy the beautiful sunset to the sound of the waves.

Overnight stay Rawi Warin Resort and Spa 

Day 5: Koh Lanta – Koh Hai
Day 5: Koh Lanta – Koh Hai

Today you check out of the hotel and are driven to the Saladan pier, where a speedboat takes you to the island of Koh Hai, also known as Koh Ngai. You will spend the next 3 nights here. Approx. 40 minutes later, you arrive at the small, heavenly island, wreathed in palm trees, jungle and white sandy beaches.

Overnight stay Fantasy Resort & Spa 

Days 6-7: Koh Hai
Days 6-7: Koh Hai

The days are spent at your leisure.

The view from the island is as if taken straight from a post card – the traditional longboats are parked in the sand with turquoise water and gigantic limestone cliffs in the background. Here you can’t help but unwind. There is no traffic here, nor shops or noisy discotheques. Here you can just lie back, lounge about in the sun, bathe in the warm, clear water and relax on a lounger with a good book. If you still need to take a trip, you head to the left, down to the other end of the island, where you can find some fantastic snorkelling opportunities. If you go right, you can walk into the jungle and onwards to a lookout point, which offers a stunning view of the sea and the mountains, which shoot up vertically from the water.

Overnight stay Fantasy Resort & Spa 

Day 8: Koh Hai - Koh Mook
Day 8: Koh Hai - Koh Mook

Today it’s time to say goodbye to Koh Hai, and fortunately, another paradise awaits. You are picked up by a longboat and taken to the impeccable Koh Mook, about 30 minutes away. Koh Mook is larger than Koh Nai, and also has a small village where you can walk or cycle about. Here you can find the local school, supermarkets, restaurants, etc.

Overnight stay Sivalai Beach Resort 

Days 9-10: Koh Mook
Days 9-10: Koh Mook

The days are spent at your leisure.

The good thing about Koh Mook is that you can make use of the beach on both sides of the island. If you want activities or excursions, you can treat yourself to a massage, rent a kayak or visit the island’s biggest attraction, the Emerald Grotto, which can only be reached by sea. Here you swim approx. 80 metres in through a tunnel. There’s not much more than luminescent fish to light the way. Once you reach the opening inside the grotto – in the middle of the island – you discover a small, hidden paradise with a sandy beach, green trees and cliffs.

If you want yet another island hop, we recommend you take a longboat to the island of Koh Kradan, about 20 minutes away. This island offers fantastic snorkelling opportunities with a chance to see curious and colourful fish, who also swim up close to the beach. The beach is narrow, but beautiful, as is the view of the vertical cliffs out in the water, and of the traditional longboats lying along the beach.

In the evening, when the temperature has dropped around Koh Mook, you can run along the beach or just take a walk, enjoying the sun as it disappears behind the green-clad mountains.

Overnight stay Sivalai Beach Resort

Excursion to the Grand Palace and boat ride on Bangkok’s klongs is included.

Bangkok is Thailand’s hectic, colourful and fascinating capital and one of the fastest growing cities in the world with around 12 million citizens. The city really began to flourish in the 90s, and today huge skyscrapers stand in contrast to the spires of the golden temples.

Central Bangkok is considered to be the area around Silom Road, where you will be staying at the 4-star Triple Two Silom hotel. The area is known as the most popular tourist area due to its high concentration of shopping centres, hotels and restaurants.

The Chao Phraya River runs through the city, providing a significant route for the city’s public transport system. On the eastern side of the river is the island of Ko Ratanakosin, which is the historical part of Bangkok and home to the city’s most lavish landmark the Grand Palace, which you will visit on a guided excursion with a local English-speaking guide.

From the popular Grand Palace, you board a long tail boat and travel along Bangkok’s canals, the city’s small, green oases. It will soon become clear why early European traders and visitors dubbed the city “the Venice of the East”.

The rest of the day is yours to explore the capital, and, among other things, visit the colourful markets such as Chatuchak, one of the world’s largest. Bangkok also has a contemporary art scene with many interesting galleries exhibiting local art. If you feel the need for some peace and quiet, you can enjoy a walk in Lumpini Park, overlooking the tall skyscrapers, which are reflected in the water.

One of the biggest experiences in Bangkok is undoubtedly the food, and you can enjoy gastronomic experiences in all price ranges right on your doorstep.

Bangkok is the city that has everything the heart desires.
