“My girlfriend and I booked this trip. We had a great time. You see so many of the different islands , the beaches, and get to explore Thailand. If I were to do it again, I would see less islands and spend more time at each. You only get a couple of days at each island, which means a third of your trip you spend travelling. My recommendations would be phucket, phi phi and koi Tao. Also , before you leave make sure to print off all of your tickets, as most excursions and ferry companies don’t accept the mobile version. This was annoying asking each hotel to print this off for us.”

ITINERARY

Welcome to the quaint, quiet and cute oasis of Huacachina with its tranquil lagoon and backdrop of amazing sand dunes anywhere you turn to look. Get ready to cruise to the tops of 500 meter high sand dunes and go rocketing down the slopes in the sand buggy. A roller coaster ride of 360's, sharp turns and steep hills will get your adrenaline pumping before you take your first shot at sand boarding. Strap yourself in tightly, throw your hands in the air and scream away as you are carried over sand dunes in the middle of the expansive desert.

You will have the opportunity to sandboard on 3-4 different dunes so you can try your luck. You will take thrilling rides on a basic sandboard by laying face first on the board and letting yourself fly down the dune to see how far (and fast) you can go. Cheer on your mates and don't let anyone shy away from this unforgettable experience. Lastly, you will admire the breathtaking sunset over the vast desert landscape and have the chance to take photos in the golden twilight before racing back to Huacachina.
