Thailand Island Hopping with G Adventures
Spend nine days on a guided tour starting and ending in Bangkok, visiting Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. Koh Samui, Thailand’s second largest island, is one of Thailand’s more popular and developed islands built for resort goers. Koh Phangan is best known for its legendary full moon parties on Haad Rin beach which draws in crowds from 5,000 to 30,000 people. Koh Tao is a great spot to scuba dive, snorkel, and relax.
Thai Islands Ko-conut Hopper with Topdeck
Start your seven-day adventure in Phuket and explore Krabi and Koh Phi Phi, the famous island that kinda outshined Leonard DiCaprio in The Beach. Ko Phi Phi is wonderful for exploring on foot – with no cars on the island, you can freely walk around like you own the place. Explore the little towns in Krabi between beach seshes and marvel in the paradise that surrounds you, a panoramic landscape of rock caves, lagoons, and limestone cliffs.
7. Costa Rica
Explore Costa Rica’s volcanoes, wildlife, rainforests, and beaches on this tour of hidden treasures with a balance of guided excursions, free time, and a few extra optional activities for the adrenaline junkies.

However you want to discover one of the most bio-diverse countries on the planet, Costa Rica is a wonderland for adventure.

If you’re thinking about exploring northern Thailand, you are in for the time of your life!
