I took this 4 day trip by overnight coach from Bangkok to the south of Thailand and then to the Island of Langkawi, Malaysia via the ferry port at Taman Sentosa. On the island of Langkawi we were treated to a trip up the 700 m Gunung Mat Chinchang with great views over the island and beyond. After an overnight stay on the island we returned to Thailand and visited a few islands by fast boat and stayed on the paradise island of Ko Lipe for our next night. The next day was spent exploring the Tarutao Nationl Park that is made up of many small beautiful deserted islands. Once back on the mainland of Thailand at Pakbara, Satun, we made our way north and stopped near Puket for lunch and then a boat trip down a set of rapids. Then we made our long trip home overnight to Bangkok. Another great experience with some lovely people.
