Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Koh Lanta

On arrival into Krabi airport you will be met and transferred to the beautiful island of Koh Lanta for a two night stay. Your time is free to enjoy the miles of sandy beaches and quiet laid back charm that the island is known for. Alternatively, you may like to visit Lanta old town, a quaint village inhabited by fishing families,  Chinese merchants and a community of sea gypsies. You’ll find Buddhist and Chinese temples, an art gallery and a selection of restaurants.

Meals: 1 Breakfast
Hotel: Twin Lotus Resort, Koh Lanta

Day 3 - Koh Mook

After breakfast, transfer to the pier for your ferry or speedboat ride through the tropical Andaman Sea to Koh Mook. One of the stunning islands that make up the Trang archipelago, Koh Mook is part of the Had Chao Mai National Park and offers a mixture of mountains, unspoiled beaches and tropical jungles. Your accommodation for the next two nights sits on the cape, at Hua Laem Beach, a spectacular and unforgettable location.

The island is the third largest in the Trang Sea, yet is small enough to easily get around on a motorbike, bicycle and even foot. Koh Mook is home to the spectacular Morakot Cave, also known as Emerald Cave, a must-see attraction on the west coast of the island.

Your afternoon will be spent at leisure.

Meals: 1 Breakfast
Hotel: Sivalai Resort, Koh Mook

Day 4 - Emerald Cave

Head off early today on a private speedboat excursion to explore the Trang archipelago and the impressive Emerald Cave. The day will be spent exploring the various islands around Koh Mook which are not so often visited by tourists. These can include Koh Rok, Koh Ma, Koh Chaek, Koh Kradan and Koh Ngai and your guide will be happy to show you some of the best spots to snorkel.

The main attraction of the day will be Emerald Cave (Morakot) which is quick and easy to reach by boat for guests staying on Koh Mook and your guide will be able to arrange a visit when the crowds are at a minimum. To reach the cave there is a small entrance only 10 metres wide that can only be accessed by kayak during low tide. A more exciting way to enter is by swimming one by one to the end of the 80 metre channel. The reward when you reach the centre is worth it as you are surrounded by high cliffs of lush greenery and a small sandy beach under the open blue skies. The sunlight filters through the sea water creating the stunning emerald colour.

After a relaxing day at sea, return to the hotel for afternoon at leisure.

Meals: 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
Hotel: Sivalai Resort, Koh Mook

Day 5 - Koh Lipe

After breakfast transfer to the pier for your speedboat or ferry ride to Koh Lipe. This paradise island is Thailand’s most southerly and offers white sandy beaches, excellent scuba diving in its turquoise waters and a laid back island vibe. The rest of the day will be at leisure where you can explore the island on foot or relax in your beachfront resort.

Meals: 1 Breakfast
Hotel: Idyllic Concept Resort, Koh Lipe

Day 6 - Plankton & Sunset Trip

Enjoy the morning at leisure before heading off on an afternoon adventure. A local guide will pick you up from the hotel and you’ll head off in a longtail boat to find some of the best snorkel spots around the island.  These may include Koh Jabang, a gorgeous site with rock pinnacles covered in red coral where big schools of fish swim around and Koh Yang where you can snorkel straight from the beach and if you are lucky, spot sea turtles.

After snorkelling, you’ll head to a quiet beach on Koh Adang island to relax and enjoy the sunset. One of the highlights will be the opportunity to swim amongst the bio-luminescent glowing plankton if the weather conditions are suitable – an experience that you will never forget!

Meals: 1 Breakfast

Hotel: Idyllic Concept Resort, Koh Lipe

Day 7 - Langkawi

After breakfast you’ll say goodbye to Thailand and catch the ferry or speedboat to Langkawi, a tropical Malaysian Island.
