Soft powder sands and lazy beach days await you in your first stop, Phuket.

If you want to get out and explore, Phuket has plenty of gems waiting to be discovered on your island tour. Take a trip to the Big Buddha – this vast religious site boasts sweeping views over the island when you reach the top. Embrace your inner haggler and pay a visit to the legendary Night Market in Old Phuket Town – prepare for a sensory overload as you sample the spicy treats on offer and soak up the electric atmosphere.
