12 Day Thailand Beach Holiday

Beaches of the South West

See Asia Differently brings you sun, sea and sand with this 12 day Thailand Beach holiday. Our Beaches of the South West island hopping and beach holiday is perfect for those who are looking to escape from their busy work schedules and wanting a holiday of pure beach relaxation in Thailand. You have two beach options depending on the time that you are travelling, one on the west coast and the other on the east coast. We recommend the West Coast from the 1st November until the end of March and then the East Coast from the 1st April until the end of October.

This tour starts from Bangkok, where you will enjoy your first and last night of the holiday. From here you travel south by train to Surat Thani and then transfer to Khanom, where you will get a wonderful encounter with the rare pink dolphins that frolic off the coast before meeting the amazing story of Luang Por Tiuad, the monk.

From here on, it is all about Thailand’s incredible beaches, soft white sand and incredibly clear turquoise waters that you find in each of the island locations that you visit on this Thailand beach holiday. Each location has its own charm, friendly local people, great food and quality service. The only thing that you have to do is decide what you are going to do, when you arrive. As you can be as active as you like by visiting some local sites, or do absolutely nothing at all – it’s your holiday, so it’s your choice!
