eXplore Plus Thailand destinations:
Phuket Island
Phuket is Thailand's most popular beach destination and has everything you could possibly want on a holiday: beautiful
beaches, some of the finest resort hotels, watersports, exquisite seafood, international and Thai cuisine, mountains, forests,
coral reefs, turquoise seas and tropical sunshine, all in plentiful proportions. Whether you are looking for a quiet corner to
enjoy a romantic retreat or an action packed time with plenty of colourful nightlife, Phuket has it all. Its gentle rolling hills
covered with tropical vegetation, kilometres of white sandy beaches flanked by palms and delightfully warm water make
Phuket a paradise for water sport enthusiasts and sun lovers. Phuket's appeal lies in the beauty of the island, and the variety
of relatively inexpensive activities on offer. Thailand's largest island has wonderful food, vibrant nightlife, an excellent range
of accommodation and great beaches, but there's a lot more to do besides sunbathe! Diving, fishing, eco-adventure tours in
the forests, touring the amazing area around Phang Nga Bay, trips to the outlying islands and elephant trekking are just a
few...

Phi Phi Island
The Phi Phi Islands are some of the most beautiful in Southeast Asia. Picture towering green cliffs, rising up from a
glittering turquoise sea, and endless white sandy bays dotted along the shore, and you begin to have some idea of what
awaits you. Add crystal clear water, no roads and a tropical laid back lifestyle, and it's easy to see why Phi Phi is one of
southern Thailand's most popular destinations. About 48km offshore from Phuket are the scenic two limestone islands of
Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. Phi Phi Don, the larger island has all the tourist infrastructure, including resorts, restaurants,
bars, tour agencies and dive schools. About 6km south, Phi Phi Leh is an undeveloped soaring chunk of limestone rock. The
best way to explore Phi Phi Islands is with a long tail boat since much of the fun comes from motoring about in cobalt blue
waters, next to, or even underneath, eroded cliff faces that climb the length of a football field. The awesome cliffs, lively
coral reefs and caves echoing with the call of sea swallows combine in the course of a day into a fantastic memory.

Lanta Island
Lanta Island, named among "the world's sexiest islands" is delightfully exotic, thanks to its remote location, pristine
beaches and balmy weather. A long-time sweetheart with the intrepid backpacking crowd, Lanta is steadily changing, with
up market resorts replacing the cheaper bungalows. The carefree, hip backpacker vibe still prevails for now, although the
laid-back atmosphere has been kicked up a notch, and you'll find plenty of bars along with a string of restaurants. Lanta
Island is a district within the Krabi province that consists of 52 islands, of which 12 are inhabited. The island is around 25km
long, with a hilly central section and a string of superb sandy beaches along its western coastline.

Samui, the coconut island with tropical beaches, amazing rock-shapes, excellent diving, deserted local islands and add to
this a laidback atmosphere! Thailand's third largest island Samui is a mecca for beach lovers, seafood gourmets and sea-
sports fanatics. Tropical paradise is an often used cliché to describe the laid back island. Samui has a large number of
offshore islands. The Ang Thong Marine National Park contains 42 islands with wonderfully weird shapes formed from
limestone and erosion. Some have caves and secluded beaches surrounded by coral reefs, while others raise hundreds of
metres as sheer rock face from the sea. The strange rock formations extend below the water, allowing great diving
opportunities and day trips sightseeing and snorkelling.

Krabi
Krabi, on the coast of Thailand is one of the most relaxing places on the planet. Stunning scenery, fantastic white sand
beaches, a coastline with over 200 islands and a jungle covered interior revealing towering limestone cliffs, caves, and, of
course lots of lovely beaches. Krabi has four national parks, two of them marine parks that encompass much of its coastline
and most offshore islands. The Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park - includes part of the lovely Phang Nga Bay, as well as the
spectacular Phi Phi group of islands to the south. The Mu Koh Lanta National Park encompasses Lanta Island and dozen of
small islets in the Andaman Sea. The Phang Nga Bay is studded with 83 limestone islands, many sculptured into strange
shapes by the elements and bearing descriptive names like Chicken Island and Nai Island.

Bangkok
Fascinating, vibrant, colourful, and at times even mind-boggling... Bangkok - floating markets, shopping, fruit carvings and the
infamous tuk-tuks. While you’re in Bangkok, make sure to make the most of the city's famous nightlife, experience the
excitement of a Thai boxing match, or the glitz and glam of a lady boy show or perhaps an elegant dinner cruise on the
Chao Praya River. This – and much, much more – is Bangkok. Explore! Experience! Discover its hidden secrets. Indulge.
