Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Phuket, Singapore, Cebu, Palawan, Mindanao and Manila!
We’ve put together another fantastic trip across Southeast Asia! Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Phuket, Singapore, Cebu, Palawan, Mindanao and Manila in one trip from Geneva for only €630!
Spectacular scenery, stunning tropical sunsets and warm sea awaits you at Asia’s most popular beach destination. Friendly, exotic, tropical, and historic Thailand attracts millions of visitors every year who are keen on admiring the beautiful sea coast and fantastic nature of this country.
Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan & Ko Tao
These three Central Gulf islands, located off the East Coast, are quite close together. Ko Samui is Thailand's third-largest island. Abundant tourist resources, sandy beaches, coconut trees and coral reefs are present on the island. Enjoy luxurious comfort in Ko Samui and then head to Ko Pha-Ngan to spend the craziest night of your life at a wild Full Moon, Black Moon or Half Moon party. These all-night open air events take place on a beach in Haad Rin and in a nearby forest. Thailand's party island also has a quieter side. To enjoy peace and serenity, take a longtail boat from the Rasananda to Bottle Beach (Hat Khuat), one of the island’s most remote and unspoilt beaches.
Ko Tao is the perfect place to learn to scuba dive, as there are hardly any currents and a wide selection of dive sites. You can get there by a ferry - 1.5 h from Ko Samui or 1 h from Ko Pha Ngan. Take a bike around the island and go snorkelling in the Shark Bay. However, the best places are only accessible by foot. In the Central Gulf you can also enjoy the natural splendour of the Ang Thong Marine Park and untouched coast and beaches of Cape Pathiu in Chumphon province.

If you want to enjoy Thailand without visiting the beach, head to one of its inland national parks. You’ll have the chance to discover the pristine landscapes. Visit Erawan National Park and enjoy its natural beauty and unspoiled wilderness. Climb up the Erawan Falls, explore the caves and bathe in the natural pools. Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park is notable for its limestone hills, 300 species of birds and the Phaya Nakhon Cave, that has a Buddhist temple inside.
Located near the Burmese border, Kaeng Krachan National Park and Kui Buri National Park are recognized as being the best destinations in Thailand for wildlife viewing. Khao Yai National Park, in the Sankamphaeng Mountain Range (central Thailand), is appealing to hikers, mountain climbers and wildlife lovers. The park is known for its grasslands, tropical forests and waterfalls, the largest being Haew Narok. Some of the animals you’re likely to see here include elephants, gibbons, monkeys and leopards. It's even possible to spot a tiger!
In the Philippines you will meet some of the happiest and friendliest people in the world, feel the sea breeze and hear the sound of crashing waves as you lay on a swinging hammock. This amazing destination offers pretty much everything you need: from the world class beaches to sunbathe, stunning mountains to hike, awesome waves to surf, along with caves and rice terraces to explore.
Head to Legazpi, in the south of Luzon Island, to see the perfect cone of the majestic Mayon Volcano (2,463 m) and the ruins of Cagsawa Church. 460 km north from Manila, you’ll find Banaue village, surrounded by rice fields of Batad. Going up and down the rice terraces in this breath-taking scenery is a truly unique experience! The fields were introduced around 2000 years ago by the Chinese.
In Bohol island, near Cebu, you’ll see the weirdest landscapes ever! The plain is dotted with more than 1260 so-called Chocolate Hills. In the dry season, the grass-covered geological formations turn chocolate brown. On the island of Bohol there’s also a tarsier sanctuary where you can come face to face with the world's smallest primate!
