The Genuinely Curious

Day 1: Take a direct flight to Bangkok & transfer to Avani Atrium Hotel. To describe Bangkok in 3 word — it’s shopping, street life and night-life. Enjoy and explore the day at your leisure.
Day 2: Enjoy scrumptious breakfast at Avani Atrium and reserve your day for a city tour covering the beautiful temples of the old city or a visit to the beautiful Bangkok Safari & Marine World.
Day 3: Fly to Phuket. And stay at Hyatt Regency to enjoy some amazing club benefits. Explore the walking streets and stunning nightlife with a wide range of dining options available. Hyatt offers a complimentary shuttle to Patong (a must-see) and transfers to Kamala Beach as well. Avail Hyatt Regency’s complimentary services to make your holiday memorable.
Day 4: Available at a surcharge, take a trip to nearby attractions like Karon Beach, Wat Khao Rang or Jungceylong. You can also step out and indulge in some water sports like snorkelling and end your day with a set Thai dinner at Hyatt Regency.
Day 5: Enjoy your delicious breakfast at Regency Club Lounge. Post this, you can choose between a host of entertainment activities like the FantaSea show.
Day 6: Drive to Krabi (3 hours). Equally stunning, but a less active sister of Phuket. More meant for relaxing. Explore your resort — Aonang Phu Petra and explore the Ao Nang area (must visit) on this day with complimentary shuttle provided by the resort.
Day 7: Treat yourself with a Sunset Cruise on a Royal Jet Cruiser as Aonang Phu Petro resort offers discounts on excursions.
Day 8: Fly back home (via Bangkok)

2. The Party Person

Day 1: Arrive in Bangkok & check-in at Avani Atrium Hotel. Get ready to shop at Chatuchak Market. In the evening head to Soi Cowboy, the famous street featured in the Hangover 2. Head up to one of many rooftop bars like Sky Bar or Octave Rooftop Lounge & Bar.
Day 2: A trip to Thailand is not complete without seeing one of the floating markets. Because the floating markets are outside the city, be prepared to spend an entire day there. Visit Damnoen Saduak Floating Market — the largest and one of the oldest in Bangkok.
Day 3: Drive to Pattaya! Pattaya! Enough said already, isn’t it? A beautiful little resort city with a huge expat population has great things to offer. Let’s Hyde Resort & Villas, is your place to go. If you want to do the touristy things, then a visit to Coral Island is a must do.
Day 4: Tiffany’s Cabaret show (Less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and 500 m from Let’s Hyde resort) is another. But the real fun begins when you hit the party zone in Pattaya — enjoy the stunning nightlife.
Day 5: Drive to Hua Hin (approx. 4. 5hours). Hua Hin is where the sea meets the city, a resort city established by the Thai Royals long time and laid the foundations of the tourism giant that Thailand is today! Hua Hin is what Thailand is, but in a quiet way, away from the crowds. Check-in at Yana Villas and enjoy a floating pool snack in the evening. Later, keep this day to explore the beautiful city, night markets & much more.
Day 6: There are a host of activities related to nature available around Hua Hin. But a visit to Monkey Island is a must-do.
Day 7: Drive back to Bangkok airport or take the airport shuttle from Yana Villas to fly back home

3. The Romantic Escapist

Day 1: Arrive at Koh Samui & transfer to the Belmond Napasai. Arguably the most stunning of destinations in Thailand, Koh Samui will want you to do too much… or too little! Spend the first day exploring the surroundings and the resort facilities or visit the popular Chaweng beach.
Day 2: When in Koh Samui, do as the locals do: Relax! Keep this day free as you make spontaneous plans to either enjoy the beach sands, go for diving or just chill at one of the nightclubs.
Day 3: This day is meant to get out and get sun-tanned. Proceed for a visit to the islands around Samui like Koh Tao – meaning ‘Turtle Island’ – it is the scuba diving destination of choice in Thailand.
Day 4: This is where the fun begins! Proceed to a visit to the Koh Phangan Island, which is about an hour by ferry. Ferries depart at every half an hour from various points from Koh Samui. Koh Phangan is a small island which was discovered by tourists and labelled as the spots where one can experience “full moon nights” in all its glory! Every full moon, there is a Full moon party which is renowned all over the world. The pull of this place is such that there is hardly a place to stand in a 2 km stretch of beach.
Day 5: After finishing the party next morning, doze off at Panviman Resort on the Koh Phangan island and the day is for rest.
Day 6: Fly back from Koh Samui (via Bangkok).

4. A Long weekend break

Day 1: Arrive at Bangkok & transfer to the hotel. To describe Bangkok in 3 terms: Shopping, street life and nightlife.
Day 2: Reserve the day for Chinatown market or Asiatique Riverfront. Asiatique has successfully combined two of the most popular shopping experiences in the city: a night bazaar and a mall.
Day 3: Fly to Koh Samui and spend your holiday at Belmond Napasai. After your delicious brunch, head to the northern coast of Koh Samui and visit the famous Big Buddha shrine. Probably Samui’s most well-known landmark, the 12-metre high golden Buddha
Day 4: When in Koh Samui, don’t miss the waterfalls. Although Samui has several waterfalls, the two Na Muang waterfalls are probably the most picturesque. The name Na Muang refers to the massive purple rocks at the waterfalls. Rocks and tree roots form a natural staircase that leads to the base of Na Muang 1. A 10-minute walk further up the mountain leads to Samui’s most beautiful waterfall, Na Muang 2. Do visit!
Day 5: Nature Lover? Spend your day indulging in water sports like kite surfing, kayaking, snorkelling or go for elephant trekking or a crocodile show!
Day 6: Fly back home (via Bangkok).

5. Go with a group!

Day 1: Arrive in Phuket & transfer to The Village Coconut Island. Your first day is free to explore the walking streets of the above areas (Patong is a must visit). Or visit Phi Phi islands to visit Monkey beach, Bamboo island and much more.
Day 2: Head to Phang Nga Bay for Kayaking and Visting James Bond Island. Enjoy a full day trip to one of these by speedboat/long tail boat/jet cruise. Indulge in Watersports and enjoy a Thai Lunch. 
Day 3: Indulge in a relaxing spa at Village Coconut Island Resort. Rest and soak in the positive vibe of the property and in the evening, head over to some impressive night market and try local street food and snacks with street performances and music.
Day 4: Drive to Khao Lak (2 hours) and check-in at Robinson Club. A quieter & nature-loving cousin of Phuket, enjoy time at leisure on this day to explore the quiet surroundings and the resort. Guess what? The property covers all your big meals with complimentary beverages!
Day 5: A full day visit to Khao Sok is a great combination of your Thai holiday. Enjoy your visit to the beautiful Khao Sok national park through the gentle modes of a bamboo raft, feed the elephants at a rescue camp, stop for a Thai Lunch at a local restaurant and end the visit by touring the Monkey Temple.
Day 6: Drive to Krabi (2 hours). Equally stunning, but less active sister of Phuket. More meant for relaxing. Explore your resort and explore the Ao Nang area (must visit) on this day
Day 7: Treat yourself with a Sunset Cruise on a Royal Jet Cruise. We know you have recovered from a couple of days of relaxation, so choose to test your adrenaline by indulging in some adventure sports like ATV ride, Ziplining or the amazing water sports 
Day 8: Enjoy something known as the “4 islands tour” which takes you to the 4 must-visit islands around Krabi on a speedboat or a long boat.
Day 9: There’s a direct flight back to India from Phuket now! Head back home 🙂
