The Round the World Island Hopping trip is a combination tour, bringing together three of our most popular island hopping trips: Thailand Island Hopping, Bali Beaches and Philippines Island Hop. You can also bolt on the Fiji Island Escape (8 days) if you haven’t quite had your fill of the beach life!

Thailand Express (14 days)

Sawasdee-ka! Explore this South East Asian gem over two weeks, kick off in crazy Bangkok with temple tours and big nights out, before a night in stunning Khao Sok National Park. Chill out on Koh Phangan’s most secluded beach, learn Muay Thai, snorkel with a rainbow of fish on Koh Tao, party under the stars in Koh Phi Phi and finish up in lively Phuket. It’s the ultimate tropical getaway,  

Bali Experience (10 days)

Meet the rest of your group in vibrant Canggu, where we’ll spend three days chilling on the beach, visiting spectacular temples, and taking a surf lesson with some local pros. Then we’ll head inland to Bali’s cultural heart – Ubud, stopping at a sparkling waterfall on the way. We’ll get to know Ubud’s colourful markets and hip café culture, as well as enjoying lunch with views of an active volcano, taking a stroll through the famous rice terraces, and meeting the cheeky locals at Monkey Forest. We’ll take the boat to gorgeous Gili Trawangan next, where we’ll explore this car-free paradise by bicycle, dance on the sands all night, and swim with hundreds of colourful reef fish on a day trip round all three Gili Islands. Then it’s time to get ready for the next stage of this amazing adventure – Australia!

Philippines Island Hop (12 days)

The Philippines is white sands and swaying palms for days! Bliss out on the paradise islands of Boracay, Cebu and Palawan. Take a private sail boat to secret beaches, where yours are the only footprints in the sand, swim with whale sharks and thousands of fish on a sardine run, visit some of the most beautiful lagoons on Earth, snorkel over tropical reefs and spend lots of nights under the stars with your new friends, toasting to your amazing adventures.

Optional add-on: Fiji Island Escape (8 days)

Fiji is picture postcard beautiful. Spend just over a week soaking up the sun, strolling down powder-soft beaches with warm water lapping at your heels, and exploring remote islands. Take day trips through the azure sea by boat, join a sunset yoga session, try paddle-boarding, swim in natural waterfalls, visit local villages, go sunset tubing, have a crack at crab-racing and tuck into barbecue on the beach, washed down with kava, drunk from coconut shells – bliss.

The Fiji Island Escape is an optional add-on and is not included in the trip price as it is only available on certain dates. Speak to your travel adviser for more information on how to add this trip to your itinerary.

Please note there may some independent travel days between one tour ending and the next beginning where you will need to arrange your own accommodation. This is a great opportunity to explore more of the countries you are visiting.

Thailand

The trip starts on day 1 in Bangkok. There are no activities planned so you can arrive at any time and our local team will collect you.

If you are on the 14 day tour your trip ends on Phi Phi Island. You will need to catch a ferry to Phuket and fly onwards from there. We recommend you book flights leaving Phuket for the evening of day 14.

Bali

Arrive in Denpasar International Airport (also known as Ngurah Rai International Airport) (DPS) for day 1 of this section of the trip. If you arrive on day 1, you’ll be met from the airport by one of our local team. The trip ends on day 10 on Gili Trawangan. The return transfer isn’t included, but your local guide will be happy to help you organise it locally. It involves a boat, then a bus back to Kuta or Denpasar Airport (5 – 6 hours). Please note when booking a return flight that we recommend the earliest you can fly is around 7pm from Denpasar to allow for your journey back from Gili Trawangan.

Philippines

Your flight to the Philippines should arrive at Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) on your programme start date. We recommend arriving in the morning or early afternoon, so that you are able to get settled in and freshened up before your welcome meal at 7:30pm. 

The tour finishes in El Nido on Palawan Island on the programme end date. The nearest airport is El Nido airport which is 20 minutes from the town but is not an international flight hub. You can fly back to Manila from El Nido from here. We recommend staying in Manila for a final night after your trip and flying home the following day. An airport transfer is not included but is easy to arrange.

Alternatively, you can take a 6-8 hour bus to Puerto Princesa airport. This is not included in the trip and if you choose this option, please book flights that depart Puerto Princesa after 7pm to allow time for transfer and check-in.

Please note that although we try to ensure that end and start dates of each leg of your trip are as close together as possible, you may have some independent travel time in between. Contact your travel adviser for more information.

Fiji

Please note: The Fiji leg of the trip is an optional add-on and is not part of the main trip.

You’ll need to arrange flights to arrive at Nadi International Airport (NAN) for the first day of your trip. You will be met at the airport and transferred to your accommodation. The transfer service is available between 7am and 10pm. If you arrive outside of these hours an out of hours transfer can be arranged for around £10 (payable locally). We recommend you arrive before 6pm to be in time for the evening welcome dinner

The tour finishes on Waya Island on day 8. You will need to make your own way back to Nadi by boat (approx $170-$210 FJD) or sea plane (approx $430 FJD). We recommend you arrange to stay in Nadi for one night after the trip to ensure that you make your connecting flights. Speak to your travel adviser if you want help arranging accommodation or transport.

Yes! Accommodation, meals and activities before the tour begins will be at your own cost though. We can usually help you arrange extra nights if you wish. If you arrive earlier than the start date, you may need to organise your own airport transfer too.

Why Do I Have To Pay For A Meal Package In Some Of The Locations In Fiji?

Some islands are very remote, and don't have a choice of places to eat at. The meal package ensures your meals are catered for on specific days.

Is Wifi Available?

Some of your locations (especially in Fiji) are very remote and may have limited or no access to WiFi. It's worth getting a sim card with mobile data from the airport if you think you'll want to use your device every day.

Due to Covid-19, many of our partners and suppliers across the globe are putting in place new procedures and policies regarding health and safety in response to the outbreak. These new measures will adapt and change as the state of travel evolves, and the policies and procedures will vary depending on each trip. Some changes that you may experience on our trips are:

Updated safety & hygiene procedures
Health and safety measures will be adapted by our partners and suppliers, dependent on local laws and restrictions.

Different transport & accommodation
You may find yourself on transport or in accommodation that would not typically be used, such as hostels that are more secluded, or on more private transport. This may vary by trip, or even by individual departure dates.

Arrival meetings
Most trips include a meeting on arrival with the guide or local team to discuss the trip, and this is an opportunity for you to ask any questions. You should arrive in time to attend these briefings.

Emergency support 24/7
We have a UK based 24/7 emergency phone line if you have a genuine urgent matter that you need attending.

Knowledgeable & Trained Staff
We can help answer any questions or concerns you may have before you depart. Whilst travelling the guide or local team on our trips are there to help, and to ensure the smooth running of our trips.

Medical care
Should you require medical assistance whilst travelling, the local team or guide will be able to help you get to a point of care. Medical facilities and standards can vary across the glove, so you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place.

Varying group sizes
To begin with, many trips will run with amended group sizes, so you may find smaller groups than would be typical. This may vary by trip, or even by individual departure dates.

Whilst there may be changes on our trips, it is vital that you make travelling safer for yourself, your travel companions, the local staff and guides, and the people of the country you are visiting. You should follow all local laws and restrictions, and follow the guidance of the local team. In addition, you can help make travel safer by bringing and using your own face coverings/masks and hand sanitiser, social distance where appropriate, wash your hands frequently, and cover your face when coughing or sneezing.
