    Day 1: Chumphon – Koh Tao

    You can either take the overnight train the night before or fly the morning flight with Nok Air to Chumphon (not included). Upon arrival in Chumphon Airport or train station, look for the Lomphraya boat counter to join scheduled transfer to pier in Chumphon where we catch a catamaran or speedboat to Koh Tao. Koh Tao – meaning ‘Turtle Island’ – lives up to its name, even though they are not as plentiful as in the past, it is not impossible to spot it. The island is one of the best spot for snorkeling and diving in Thailand. The perfect white-sand beaches which ring the hilly 21 km² island are surrounded by the crystal-clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Surrounded by turquoise clear waters and white-sand beaches, it is still a dream destination for most backpackers but the last few years it also does not lack choices of luxury resorts. Depending on your hotel location, hotel representative will wait for you at the pier in Koh Tao and escort you to the hotel.

    Day 2: Koh Tao

    Breakfast at your hotel and day is at your leisure to relax or explore the island. There are few attractions other than the beaches on Koh Tao. The island is home to some of Thailand’s best, with pristine white sand, nodding palm trees and glittering blue seas. There are many choices available, most of which are accessible along the small and rather rough road network. Haad Tien Bien. Commonly known as “Rocky Bay”, this is one of the furthest beaches from Mae Haad, but one of the best. It has the clearest water and the cleanest beach, with only a small selection of quite exclusive resorts there. It is sometimes also called “Shark Bay” for the number of black-tip reef sharks you can snorkel among (if lucky of course). Virtually anywhere along the Koh Tao coast is a great spot for snorkeling, though the so-called Shark Bay of Haad Tien and around Koh Nangyuan are among the most popular. The vibrant coral reefs there are home to a wide range of exciting and colourful sea creatures. Sairee Beach. Probably Koh Tao’s best-known beach, where you will find the majority of the nightlife, including beach bars and restaurants. Meals included: Breakfast

Koh Samui is lush with tropical jungle, its shore lined with nodding coconut palm trees and surrounded by aquamarine sea. Most beaches offer peace and relaxation yet some come up with lively nightlife, and choices of restaurants and bars.

    Day 8: Koh Samui (B/L)

    Breakfast at your hotel. Start the tour with a visit to one of the most colorful temples on Koh Samui, Wat Plailaem (sight). A showcase of Koh Samui strong Chinese heritage. Be surprised by the temple’s intricate designs, like the enormous white laughing Buddha statue. The giant Goddess Guanyin statue is flanked by two long halls that feature colorful murals and frescoes depicting Buddhist mythological stories. Witness the rituals of the many devotees join alms giving to the Buddhist monks (touch and sound). The temple is surrounded by a lake, which is teeming with carps and catfish waiting to be fed. We are heading by 4×4 wheel drive to the top of Samui, called the “Giant Summit”, surrounded by tropical nature. Refresh yourself with a cold drink and enjoy the panoramic views of Koh Samui Island. Visit secret Buddha Garden, hidden away high in the hills in Koh Samui’s interior, offering majestic views and an unusual collection of statues amid lush jungle surroundings. The gardens are a creation of an old Samui fruit farmer, Nim Thongsuk, who in 1976 began erecting several statues and temples around his family’s verdant land. Secret Buddha Garden (sight) is the kind of place where each visit brings some new discoveries. With statues of all shapes and sizes scattered around the grounds, a wrong turn or a closer look behind a tree may yield yet another hidden surprise. At We Green Organic farm, you will be welcomed with the famous Samui coconut juice (taste) and experience yourself the process of cooking some traditional Southern sweets and foods, like coconut caramel (touch, smell and taste). Enjoy a delicious lunch, made of local organic ingredients grown at the island. After lunch it is time to relax and rejuvenate yourself with a traditional Thai foot massage (touch and smell), before heading back to the hotel.
