Day 1: Phuket, Thailand | Embark

Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, lies in the Andaman Sea and is joined to the mainland by a causeway. The landscape is one of lush green hills, coconut groves, and rubber plantations, with a coastline dotted with a dozen spectacular beaches. Phuket is a holiday paradise with the lively area of Patong providing the up-beat resort life with its many shops, restaurants, and bars, leaving the rest of the island to show off her natural beauty and unspoiled culture.

Day 2: Ko Butang

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
These islands are close to the Malaysian island of Langkawi and are characterised by towering rock formations and beautiful beaches. Crystal clear seas team with marine life, ideal for snorkelling and diving or simply enjoying a relaxing swim.

Day 3: Penang, Malaysia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
“The Pearl of the Orient” lies off the northwestern coast of Malaysia and is linked to the mainland by one of the longest bridges in the world. The capital, Georgetown, bears the stamp of a mixture of foreign influences and boasts a 65-story skyscraper called the Komtar, a complex of department stores, restaurants, theaters, and squash courts. In total contrast, this beautiful island is home to one of the finest Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia, Kek Lok Si Temple.

Day 4: Ko Adang - Butang Group, Thailand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The Butang Group of islands is about as far south as you can go on the western coast of Thailand. Protected by the Ko Tarutao National Park, this 61-island archipelago is only a stone’s throw from the Malaysian border and way, way off the radar screen of tourist groups. The only habitations on Ko Adang are the Park offices and since there aren’t many visitors, the pristine beaches and deserted coves are all yours.

Day 5: Ko Rok Nok, Thailand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
One of the 15 islands that make up the Lanta group, just off the East Coast of Thailand, these islands are part of a National Marine Park.

Day 6: Phang Nga Bay | Ko Hong, Thailand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The sheer-sided sea mountains that rise vertically out of Phang Nga Bay form some of Thailand’s most spectacular scenery. The islands in this region feature wonderful white sandy beaches and superb coral reefs.

Ko Hong (“hong meaning room”), part of the Ko Hong archipelago, is so named because of its large internal lagoon. One of the prettiest bays in the area, huge monolithic rocks provide shade all day long on a beautiful white silica sand beach.

Day 7: The Similan Islands

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The Similan Islands, or Nine Islands as they are also known because of their number, nestle in the Andaman Sea to the north of Phuket and are world-renowned among diving enthusiasts for underwater sightseeing. Accessible only by sea, the Similan Islands are stunningly beautiful with scenes straight out of your dreams of a tropical paradise.

Day 8: Phuket, Thailand | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Disembark after breakfast and continue your independent trip back home.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
