2nd Day Experience - We had breakfast and 12:00 our driver picked us up and took us to the Phuket Dolphin Show. We had the privilege to swim with the dolphins. This was a once in a lifetime experience and a must do! After the dolphin show, our driver picked us up and took us back to the hotel. The rest of the day we explored our surroundings. We were in a very touristy area so there were lots to see and do. We then took advantage of the cheap massages!
3rd Day Experience - We had buffet breakfast and our driver picked us up for an adventurous day. As usual, Deepak made sure we have all the details of the day’s activities and when and where the drivers will meet us. This helped the tour to be as smooth as possible. We got at our destination for the Island safari trip. We met new people on the group tour from all over the world. We arrived at the first destination where we received fresh fruit and drinks. We then took on the ATV (Quad bikes) and followed by elephant tracking. We arrived at the next destination and had a buffet lunch. After a short rest we got ready for rafting. At first we didn’t want to do the rafting, however we decided that this is an opportunity that we don’t want to miss. This was an amazing experience! With experienced staff and great equipment, we had a blast! After the rafting we went to see some monkeys and had the opportunity to feed them as well. After the short stop we went back to the hotel and explored our area again.
4th Day Experience - After the buffet breakfast our driver picked us up and took us to the Ao Por Pier where our tour guide was ready and waiting for us and the rest of the group. We then were transferred by a luxury boat the Panak Island. Arriving at the island we then went into the Bat Cave by canoe. This was something to experience. We then went and anchored at a beautiful destination where we had a swim with island surrounding us. We went on to the Hong Island were we experienced the hidden caves and beautiful islands. We then went back to the boat and had a delicious buffet. We then went to the very famous James Bond Island where we had an hour to explore the island and take photos. We then departed to the Ao Por Pier and got were transferred back to the hotel. We explored our area and went for another famous Thai Massage.

We were picked up by our driver at the hotel and transferred to the Sea Angle Pier. We got a big boat where we departed for the Phi Phi Island. After a long cruise we arrived at the Phi Phi Island. One of the most beautiful places we have seen! It had crystal clear water with an amazing vibe. We got off the boat directly onto another boat where we had the opportunity to do some snorkeling. This was super fun with beautiful nature that surrounded us. After snorkeling we went to the island and had a very nice buffet lunch with a wide variety to choose from. We then explored the island for a while. After exploring the island and having the best fruit shakes it was time to head back to the hotel. (Next time we would definitely stay over for a few nights.) We arrived at the pier and got transferred back to the hotel and again explored the surroundings for the last time finishing it with great street cocktails and the famous Thailand Nutella and Banana pancakes.
6th Day Experience - After having buffet breakfast we got a transfer via a ferry to Krabi. We arrived early (11:00) at the hotel (iCheck Inn Aonang, Krabi) and we had to wait for check in which was at 13:00. The staff was friendly enough to look after our luggage and we had some time to explore in our area. After 13:00 we checked in and settled in. Later the night we went to the local night market which had an amazing vibe to it. We enjoyed local stalls with a variety of foods and drink and also enjoyed some live music right at the beach.
7th Day Experience - We started with one of the best buffet breakfasts and it was time to head off to our activity. Our driver picked us up and we head out to the elephant house sanctuary. This was one of our highlights where we fed the elephants and had the privilege to mud spa and bath them in the river. This was an amazing experience coming so close to these massive animals. We then had a fruit lunch and went back to hotel. Again we enjoyed the beautiful beach with the amazing scenery and visited the local stalls and live entertainment again. Krabi was the best destination of all of Thailand for us. It’s beautiful, laid back and isn’t overcrowded with tourists.
8th Day Experience - We missed breakfast due to an early flight. It was time to leave for Pattaya via Bangkok. We had trouble checking in extra luggage online the previous day. Lucky with amazing service, Deepak was able to sort out the problem, going out of his way for customer satisfaction and sorting out the problem (Thanks again Deepak!). We arrived at the Bangkok airport and got transferred to the Golden Sea Pattaya hotel. Once we arrived we explored the Pattaya streets. What an amazing vibe it has! We got VIP tickets (Thanks again Deepak) for the Alcazar Show. This was a very unique experience with world class entertainment! We really enjoyed this. After the show we had dinner at one of the local restaurants and went back to the hotel to get some rest for the night.
9th Day Experience - We started our day with a buffet breakfast. Our driver picked us up and dropped us at the beach where we met our tour guides for the day. We got on a speedboat and had our first stop. We had the chance to do some parasailing. This was an awesome experience! We then head out to the coral islands where we got on a jet ski and had time to enjoy the crystal clear water and exploring some of the island and enjoying some fruit shakes. We then head back and enjoyed the rest of what the city had to offer with its great vibe. We also enjoyed another massage.

After a long drive we arrived at the very luxurious Eastin Hotel Makkasan in Bangkok. We checked in and later that evening our driver picked us up to go on the very luxury Chao Phraya Princess cruise. What an awesome experience! What a luxurious cruise, with a wide variety of great food. We enjoyed a bottle of wine while cruising down the beautiful Bangkok river and doing sightseeing while at it. We then went back to the hotel and went out to explore the area.
11th Day Experience - We got up and had yet again a great buffet breakfast. Our driver picked us up at the lobby and off we went to the Safari World and Marine Park. Here we watched several entertainments, from Orangutans “fighting” to extreme Cowboy and 007 fights. The park also featured some amazing animal where close contact with giraffes was possible. It’s a beautiful park. We then had a buffet lunch at the park. After lunch our driver took us to drive throug h the Safari world where we could see animals from the comfort of your own vehicle, from tigers to rhinos. The park has a lot to offer! We then head back after a great day at the park. We then had a swim at the hotel with a great view and great weather. Later that evening we had dinner at one of the local restaurants with some of the best food!
12th Day Experience - Last day in Bangkok and Thailand we had a buffet breakfast for the last time. As our flights were only late the evening, the hotel had the facilities to store our luggage until we wanted to pick it up. We got in a Tuk tuk and went to a massive mall close by. We spend a few hours in the mall and went buying some Thailand souvenirs for our family back home. We took a Tuk tuk back to the hotel and waited until our driver was there to take us to the airport.
"Conclusion I special thanks Deepak and his team from Parbhat Travels for making this one of the best experiences of our lives. Everything was super organized from arriving to leaving again. Thailand is certainly a must do if you want to travel. Great locations, attractions, people and food all over the country. We will hopefully one day meet again (with Parbhat Travels) and explore even more of Thailand and other countries as well."
