Relax on Robinson Crusoe island
Relax on Robinson Crusoe island - 4 Days
Style: Thailand Beach Tours
Hightlights: Trang - Ko Hai Island
Description: During this Southern tour in Thailand, you'll stay in a cosy beach hut on a small paradise island in the Trang archipelago at the southernmost tip of Thailand
Day 1: Arrival Trang - Ko Hai Island
You'll arrive in Trang either by overnight sleeper train or by plane. If you're coming by train, you'll be picked up from the station and transferred to the pier just outside Trang where you'll take the ferry to Ko Hai Island (ferry included). The crossing takes about 40 minutes.
On Ko Hai Island you'll stay in charming, comfortable beach huts in traditional Thai style. The beach huts have their own private veranda. These beach huts in Thailand are beautifully located near a long, wideswept beach, one of the few places on the island where you can swim straight out onto the coral reefs.
Day 2: Ko Hai Island
This morning, you can rent a snorkel at the restaurant and spend the day discovering the amazing underwater world. The islands of the Trang archipelago haven't been discovered by mass tourism yet, which means the coral here is largely intact and unspoilt. If you’ve never snorkelled before, you’ll be amazed at the spectacular marine life just below the waters around Ko Hai Island. Swimming among the brightly coloured fish in such peaceful surroundings is a really great experience. The water temperature is around 27°C. The sun is extremely bright, so make sure you use plenty of sunscreen and you might want to wear a t-shirt in the water to protect your back.

Day 4: Ko Hai Island - Departure
Today, it's time to say goodbye to your little tropical paradise as you buy your ticket and board the ferry back to the pier on the mainland, where your Ko Hai beach hut trip ends. From here you can catch the bus or take a taxi back to Trang. Many travellers plan this module at the end of their Thailand trip, in which case you can take a domestic flight, or the overnight train (2nd class with A/C, approx £30) back to Bangkok, and depending on your flight time, catch your connecting flight back home.
If you'd like a few more days of island idyll, we can always extend your stay on Ko Hai Island for a few extra nights in those incredible beach huts in Thailand. Just ask our Travel Specialists for more information.

Five common questions travellers ask us
1. When is the best time to visit Thailand?
Thailand is a year-round destination, with climate varying slightly with season. The cool season, November to February is the high season for most travelers, but the best time to visit extends from November to early April.
In the south, where spectacular beaches are found, the climate differs between east (e.g. Koh Samui) and west (e.g. Phuket Island). The weather on the eastern coast is good for most of the year while the western coast is more comfortable between November and February, especially for diving and snorkeling.
2. How long and where to go for first-timers?
For first-timers, 11 to 13 days is long enough for tasting Thailand’s essence.
Take the modern capital Bangkok as the starting and end-point of your trip, spend 4 or 5 days in northern Thailand, to get closer to the elephants in Chiang Mai and walk around historical Chiang Rai. Save at least 4 days to unwind on the southern beaches.
For people planning to stay longer, side trips from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi and Ayutthaya are worthwhile. Or take a chance to visit Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos while you are in Thailand.
3. Is it necessary to use private travel services in Thailand?
Yes, yes, and yes, as long as you find a reliable travel agent who makes every effort to ensure you a hassle-free and unique vacation. While Thailand has countless day trips and all kinds of travel services, creating the perfect combination on the spot may add to your stress-levels.
A professional local guide in Thailand can not only assist you but can also suggest and arrange life-changing experiences, like babysitting a baby elephant.
And no one would decline a nice private car, protecting from the hot and humid weather; or quality accommodation, for good rests at night and improved energy-levels during the day.
