Last island in Koh Nai and the trip to the Emerald cave and the snorkelling on the same trip.
Prepare for a long and not particularly comfortable train trip to and from Bangkok, unlikely to get much sleep especially if on the top bunk - lights are on all night and the air conditioning can be a bit fierce,

Loved cycling around the first island. Seeing the elephants and hiking through jungle on last island. Would not recommend accommodation on Krabi. Would upgrade. Resort either side better. Would may be do a trip to Krabi town. Last resort very nice. I had a lovely room. But restaurant found not great. All in all though great adventure. I flew back so only one night on the train. I think train back is far too long followed by flight home. You should look into flights. Also new years eve entertainment was disappointing. Nice venue but no real entertainment for adults just kids. Would liked to have danced on the beach! I imagined it round be amazing. But it was very dull. Also disappointed with age group. I was told Explore was for younger travellers but apart from one they were 50s and 60s. Not really what I was after. Prefer younger crowd 30s and 40s.... that would put me off booking with Explore again.

The 5 islands day-trip to Bamboo Island, Koh Phi Phi and the snorkelling was excellent.

This is not a high-energy fortnight though. Towards the end by prepared for a couple of days doing nothing on the beach with a book. Personally I would have swapped an extra day in Ko Lanta instead of Koh Hai.

This was my first trip with Explore and I was a bit nervous of travelling alone (I'm a lady in late 40's). But I found it to be very well organised with plenty of information being sent to me so I knew exactly what I was doing and I had a wonderful time. The tour was great, lots to do if we wanted but relaxing as well and the Islands are beautiful. I particularly enjoyed the localised aspect and the diversity of the trips, from meeting a farmer and learning about their lives and the crops they grow to a speedboat trip to go snorkelling, and meeting the elephants and monkeys too. The accommodation is excellent and I liked that we could choose where to eat during the days, although it was a little more expensive per day than in the information. I chose the Islands trip as I'm not a fan of cities so the only thing that could have made this trip any better is if the tour ended in Phuket rather than having to return to Bangkok, but that's really a very minor thing. This is not a dressy holiday so take casual clothes and plenty of beachwear (sarongs are a good idea) but you must have something to cover knees and shoulders for the temples and it is very hot indeed so be aware of this and keep it lightweight. The guide was very informative and helpful, she made the 2 weeks very easy for us and I had a brilliant holiday!
