Dubai, Phuket & Khao Lak

Your journey begins in Dubai. A sprawling city that soars towards – and sometimes beyond – the clouds, the ever-evolving metropolis of Dubai entices with its striking blend of Arabian tradition and contemporary world-class facilities.

With a distinctive skyline dominated by a multitude of vast, modern skyscrapers – including the tallest building of them all, the 830m Burj Khalifa, Dubai has become an icon of the modern generation, from the spectacular Palm Jumeirah that blossoms across the Arabian Sea, to the mammoth shoppers’ paradise that is Dubai Mall, to the thrilling water parks at Wild Wadi and Aquaventure.

First stop in Thailand Phuket is one of Thailand’s most interesting destinations, with its ethnically diverse history and culture creating a unique fusion which separates it from other resorts in the country. Acting as the ideal stopping point for day trips to surrounding National Parks and water-based activities such as diving, Phuket is an ideal resort for families who wish to explore Thailand’s world-class beaches and natural habitats whilst enjoying its Portuguese architecture, internationally diverse cuisine and the special blend of local hospitality.

A range of exceptional value for money accommodation options are available in Phuket to suit budget travellers and those seeking a slice of luxury on their beach holiday to Thailand.

A couple of hours drive will take you to the beachside resort of Khao Lak. Khao Lak is the perfect destination for visitors looking to enjoy a relaxing holiday on Thailand’s stunning beaches away from the hustle and bustle of the country’s busier resorts.  Whilst the destination has a more relaxed pace of life compared to the high-octane energy of nearby Phuket, Khao Lak still possesses all the essential amenities of a beach resort, with a wide variety of activities and retail opportunities.  With gorgeous powdery sands and inviting turquoise waters set against a backdrop of lush greenery.  Located on the northern Andaman coast, Khao Lak also provides an ideal base for excursions to Khao Lak, Lam Ru and Khao Sok National Parks and the stunning Similan and Surin Islands.
