Covid-19 Requirements: The wellbeing of our travelers is our top priority. That’s why we’re updating our vaccination policy to require all travelers on Contiki trips to be fully vaccinated to travel with us until the end of 2022.As well as keeping our travelers safe, a core principle of how we operate is protecting the communities we visit. It’s vital that we make sure those communities also feel safe, and that we all minimise, as much as possible, anyone’s chances of travelling with, picking up or passing on COVID-19. This is part of operating responsibly - especially in countries with more vulnerable populations or low access to vaccines.Additionally, many venues around the world are now requiring proof of vaccination for indoor activities such as dining in restaurants or visiting museums. We want everyone who travels with Contiki to have the best experience possible, so when faced with having to exclude travelers from activities, we feel that requiring all travelers to be vaccinated is the most responsible choice.Your final vaccine dose must have been administered a minimum of 15 days prior to the start of the trip. We will continue to monitor the local requirements and update the policy accordingly.Travelers will also need to comply with specific requirements imposed by airlines and/or governments which may differ from the above.

COACH ITINERARY

DAY 1: Arrive Phuket

Phuket
8-days of exotic lands and those much hyped perfect Thai beaches sit ahead of us. The high-on-life vibes will be inevitable as we join forces in Phuket, start getting acquainted and allow ourselves to start slipping into island time. Hotel hangs and pool time will be high on the agenda. 
Stay: Sawaddi Patong Hotel (or similar)

DAY 2: Phuket

Phuket
Well good morning explorers, it's your first full day so time to get movin' and shakin'. If you'd rather take to Phuket Town and admire the Chinese influenced local architecture. Swing high or lay low, the choice is entirely yours. The bright lights and wild antics of Bangla Road can take things up a notch this evening!  
Stay: Sawaddi Patong Hotel (or similar)

DAY 3: Phuket to Koh Phi Phi

Phuket: It's day three and 'mai pen rai - don't worry, be happy' is now pretty much the group mentality. Enjoy a lazy breakfast and catch some rays before we hit the Andaman Sea in search of one very famous beach... 
Koh Phi Phi: Arriving in Koh Phi Phi will leave you in a daze of love and happiness. More scenic than your wildest dreams, this island is home for the next few days. Glorious long salty days, balmy nights and endless ocean explorations are calling. Dine on the herb-filled rice salad with grated coconut that is khao yam, watch the sunset from Koh Phi Phi's highest vantage point or stroll postcard beaches alongside playful monkeys. Definitely an evening you won't be forgetting in a hurry.

Watch the sunset over Andaman Sea from the highest viewpoint on the island
 
Cap off the sunset with a relaxing beachfront dinner

DAY 4: Koh Phi Phi

Koh Phi Phi
The island is your playground and the day is yours to do whatever your heart desires. We're recommending our Day on the Bay Free Time Add-On - the perfect mix of island hopping, swimming and chillaxing. Afterwards, squeeze in one last beachside stroll with the flickering island lights as your backdrop, soaking up the island sounds and Pad Thai smells... this is what we call living.
Stay: Bayview Hotel (or similar)

Koh Phi Phi: Although we're leaving Kho Phi Phi and heading to mainland Thailand today, our salty seadog spirit won't change a bit. The exotic paradise of Krabi is calling our names, and who are we to resist...
Krabi:This afternoon we'll soak in the small town feels of Ao Nang. Friendly locals, massage haunts, local markets and seaside cocktails can perfect your day like kaffir lime to a mojito. 
Stay:Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort (or similar)
