After Bangkok and its sites of cultural interest, enjoy a seaside holiday discovering three magnificent islands in the Samui Archipelago, in the south of the Gulf of Siam.
Koh Samui is the most significant island. The central part of the island is an almost uninhabitable tropical jungle mountain, peaking at 635 m. The various lowland and coastal areas are connected by a single road running mostly along the coastline. Renowned for its beautiful beaches that follow one another like a string of pearls, Koh Samui also offers various attractions: culture and nature, like the Big Buddha, Wat Plai Laem dedicated to Guanyin, the goddess of mercy, the suggestive Hin Ta and Hin Yai Rocks (Grandpa and Grandma rocks) or the Secret Buddha Garden, hidden among the hills, with an amazing collection of statues in the jungle.
Ko Tao (Turtle Island) is a small mountainous island mainly dedicated to diving and sea discovery. But do not forget its opportunity of hiking and rock climbing.
When you say Koh Phangan, “full moon party” first springs to mind. But Koh Phangan is an island “nature oriented” as its mountainous central part is generally inaccessible. More than half the island is a national park with relatively unspoiled rain forest and diverse flora and fauna. All around you can enjoy small or larger sandy beaches along beautiful bays. And if you prefer spirituality, it is considered a mystical place, with numerous Buddhist temples around the island.
On arrival at the airport you are met by your guide who will take you to your hotel. Your afternoon is free at leisure for you to rest from your trip.
In the early morning you visit the jewel of the city, the fabulous Royal Palace in Bangkok. It was built at the beginning of Bangkok, between 1782 and 1784 by the first king of the Chakri dynasty, with his personal residence, his courtrooms and the royal temples. The Grand Palace Royal Chapel (Wat Phra Si Ratana Satsadaram) houses the Emerald Buddha, a jadeite statue venerated in Bangkok, the religious and symbolic emblem of the Chakri Dynasty, the symbol of the country’s security. Then you visit the Wat Po, known for its large reclining Buddha. After lunch in a restaurant along the Chao Phraya, the “River of Kings”, you enjoy a trip in a longtail boat on the canals (klong) of Bangkok. You will discover different aspects of the daily life of the Thai people and the contrasts of Bangkok. Along the way, you stop at the majestic Wat Arun or Temple of Dawn, with his prang (Khmer style spire) inlaid with colourful pieces of china, followed with a colorful visit, walking through the Pak Klong Thalad, de biggest flower- and vegetable market in the capital and your transfer back to your hotel.
