Day 10: Phi Phi Islands Experience -Take off on an amazing boat trip around the stunning Phi Phi Leh. Snorkel, kayak, see an incredible underwater light show at night and enjoy a few drinks and dinner under the stars. It’s a truly unforgettable experience! (D)
*There is a possibility we may not be able to enter right into Maya Bay at certain times of year due to government closures.
Day 11: Paradise Islands Boat Trip - Hike to Phi Phi’s iconic viewpoint in the morning and then explore Phi Phi’s amazing Paradise Islands on an awesome private and exclusive boat trip. Visit hidden lagoons, snorkel in crystal clear water and discover some little known and stunning white sandy beaches. Then head out for a farewell dinner and to experience Phi Phi’s awesome nightlife one last time! (L)
Day 12: Chill out on Phi Phi - Your day to relax on the beach or explore more of the island. You can choose to stay on in Phi Phi or continue your travels in Thailand.
It’s best to arrive on the actual start date. There’s no activities on the first day, so you can arrive at any time. If you do arrive early we’ll still pick you up from the airport and will book you into our Bangkok guesthouse – Wild Orchid Villa from the day you arrive. Extra nights will be approx. £25 / $45AUD per night for a twin room and can be pre-paid with your agent or paid on arrival.
After Thai Intro 9 day
Thai Intro finishes on Koh Phangan in the south of Thailand. If you’re staying on longer in Thailand, your Group Leader will help organise all of your onward travel including any of our Add-on trips.
If you plan to leave straight after Thai intro and need to get back to Bangkok to return home, here are your options:
- The quickest way back to Bangkok is by taking a short 45 minute ferry from Koh Phangan to Koh Samui and then a one hour flight back to Bangkok. The first ferry from Koh Phangan is approx. 7.30am and so your flight from Koh Samui to Bangkok should be booked for no earlier than 11am. If you choose this method and you’re flying internationally from Bangkok, your international flight should be booked for no earlier than 3.30pm
- The second quickest, and most popular option, is to take a 3.5 hour ferry to Surat Thani and then a one hour flight back to Bangkok. The flight to Bangkok from Surat Thani should be booked for no earlier than 1pm. If you choose this method and you’re flying internationally from Bangkok, your international flight should be booked for no earlier than 6pm.
- If you have more time you can also do the overnight train back to Bangkok.
Your Group Leader can help you with all these options and more in Thailand.
After Thai Intro 12 day
Thai Intro + Phi Phi finishes on the beautiful Phi Phi Islands. You can choose to stay longer on Phi Phi or, if you need to get back to Bangkok, the quickest option is to get a ferry to either Phuket or Krabi and fly to Bangkok from either of these airports. The flight to Bangkok should be booked for no earlier than 3pm on day 12, if you’re flying internationally from Bangkok, your international flight should be booked for no earlier than 8pm on day 12.
Your Group Leader will help with any other local transport and ensure you’re comfortable with all parts of your trip and onward travel.
Most nationalities including the UK, Europe, Australia, NZ, Canada, USD, Scandinavia and Brazil will usually receive a
30-day visa exemption on arrival for free.
If you would like a longer tourist visa or are not eligible for the visa exemption you can apply for a visa at your nearest Thai consulate prior to entering Thailand. If you’re unsure of your visa requirements or need any help just contact us.
Travel Insurance for Thailand is compulsory to join Thai Intro. Your Group Leader will ask to see proof of your cover before your trip begins.
Do many people travel alone?
Yes. Lots of people who go to Thailand are travelling solo. But by doing Thai Intro you’ll be part of a group, so it’s a great way to meet and make friends!
When is the best time to visit Thailand?
The great thing about Thailand is it’s usually quite hot all year round, so it’s great to go at any time. There is a slightly higher chance of rain around October and November, however it usually only rains for an hour or so which can be a nice relief from the heat.
How much spending money will I need?
All your activities, accommodation, transport and most meals are included, so you’ll just need money for any extra meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least £300 / $500 spending money.
How will I access money while I’m away?
It’s best to take a Visa or Master Card debit, credit or travel money card. There are ATM’s available throughout Thailand so it’s easy to get access to cash. Some places accept credit card but not all.
Is there Wi-Fi throughout the trip?
All accommodations we stay at have free Wi-Fi available. Thailand’s network quality is often lower than you’re used to but you can generally connect and do basic stuff.
What luggage do you recommend?
We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s generally quite hot in Thailand so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun. There is luggage storage at the airport or at some accommodations if needed.
What plugs do they use in Thailand?
Thailand generally uses a flat or round 2 pin socket the same as most of Europe. It’s always best to grab yourself an appropriate adaptor if needed before you go.
