Escape to an island of fun and adventure

Island Weekend Getaway

This is the perfect three day getaway that combines coastal cycling with an island adventure that could be jam packed with activity or just a lazy, relax on the beach escape from busy Bangkok.
On this tour we keep it local - away from the maddening crowds of tourist, by taking you to a gem of a little island that's definitely not on the usual tourist route. This is not a typical tropical island with palm trees and pinacoladas on the beach, but it is almost car free and does have some spectacular views with a white sand beach that is safe and with all the essential amenities such as restaurants, toilets, medical and of course souvenir shopping. And, for the adventurous, there are lots of good pristine snorkeling spots or temple caves worth exploring.
Of all islands, this is by far the most laid-back with the friendliest of people and a certain charm of its own in a way that it preserves the simple lifestyle of its inhabitants.

Itinerary

Pick up
We start the adventure with an early morning pick up at your
hotel and head south east out of Bangkok. it will take about an
hour to reach the start of the cycling point, so this is a good
time to catch up on your sleep.

Cycling stage
The cycling is mostly along the coast with regular stops for
snacks, lunch, photos or just to chit-chat to the locals.
Throughout the cycling leg, we'll have a support vehicle following us all the way.
Lunch is at a coastal restaurant. Although fresh seafood is the order of the day, we do cater for all other dishes and dietary requirements.

On the Island
We should reach the island by late afternoon and after checking in at our accommodation, you'll have free time to freshen up, relax or explore the area before meeting for dinner.
The next day is essentially free for you to do as you please, however we will present you with a suggested itinerary and be on hand to assist you with anything or show you around the island.

Day three
After breakfast we have another suggested itinerary alternatively you can have the time for yourselves. Checkout is at noon, after which we'll catch the ferry back to the mainland to meet our van for the trip back to Bangkok.
