Day 2: Off to a remote island
Be part of a unique expedition to a remote island in the bay of Chumphon, one of the most preserved beach provinces in South Thailand and an off-the-beaten-track destination that avoids the hordes of tourists found in the more popular Thai provinces. We recommend you to pack light (don't forget your swimsuit and sun lotion, you'll need them!); feel free to leave your luggage at the hotel until tomorrow.
Meet your guide at 13:00 in the lobby of the hotel, who will accompany you to Koh Kye Island for your amazing island camping experience. Your guide will give you a basic briefing on safety and the dos & don’ts of this pristine island and bring you to a fishermen’s village, from where you will receive your complete camping equipment package including a tent, sleeping bags, pillow, head lamps and some beach games.
At the fishermen’s village, you will get your last chance to purchase snacks and drinks to bring with you to the island. Then follow your guide through the local community and hop on a traditional long tail boat for a 30-minute cruise to Koh Kye.
Koh Kye has a unique feature which is different from many other islands. It is actually a “coral graveyard”, which takes the form of a white sand dune and is as white as an egg! A large amount of dead corals has been gathering on this dune island since Typhoon Gay hit Chumphon in 1989. As time passes, rainwater changes the color of the dead corals to white, creating the natural beauty of this unique island.
Koh Kye is a peaceful sanctuary surrounded by coral reefs and home to a dense jungle. This is where we will set-up our camp for the night. Don’t worry, there are plenty of activities that await you, including snorkeling in the coral reef among hundreds of colorful fish, and participating in a fun beach volleyball tournament while the sun sets in the background.
A light lunch will be served once you'll be comfortably settled.
Just after sunset, join the rest of the group for a delicious BBQ prepared with freshly caught seafood and seasonal vegetables grown by Chumphon’s farming community. Enjoy the rest of the evening in good company under the stars while listening to campfire stories.
