Day 1: Arrive 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 Resort (or similar) Included Meals: Dinner INCLUDED EXPERIENCES Welcome Dinner

Day 2: Phuket

Well good morning explorers, it's your first full day so time to get movin' and shakin'. Choose to spending some of the day with rescued elephants at the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary or 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 Resort (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast INCLUDED EXPERIENCES Party on Bangla Road Elephant Sanctuary Visit (MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience) ADDITIONAL COST APPLIES

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... Phi Phi Islands: 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. Stay: Bay View Resort (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast INCLUDED EXPERIENCES Find Your Happy Place with Views of Phi Phi

Day 4: Koh Phi Phi

Phi Phi Islands: 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: Bay View Resort (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast INCLUDED EXPERIENCES Day on the Bay ADDITIONAL COST APPLIES

Day 5: Phi Phi Islands

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) Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner INCLUDED EXPERIENCES Gorge on an Island Buffet

Day 6: Krabi

Back on the Thai mainland we'll take in the island vistas from the charming setting of Krabi. Today you can opt for a speed boat cruise of Phang Nga Bay to see the famous James Bond Island. Local markets, cheap massages & sunset cocktails can reward us from our adventurous day out. Stay: Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast INCLUDED EXPERIENCES Phang Nga Bay Day Cruise ADDITIONAL COST APPLIES

Day 7: Krabi

Rise and shine, you have a full free day to make the most of everything Krabi has to offer! Maybe chillax on Railay beach or take advantage of the optional rock climbing activity. Tonight is our last night together as a Contiki collective; best organise a team dinner and have one last evening of mischief. Stay: Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast INCLUDED EXPERIENCES Beachside Cliffs of Krabi with a Half Day Rock Climbing Experience ADDITIONAL COST APPLIES

Day 8: Krabi to Phuket

After one final morning in paradise it's back on the coach to Phuket where our paradise adventure comes to an end. Have one final love-in with your travel fam, then take our transfer either to the airport or back to our start hotel. Included Meals: Breakfast
