Wouldn’t bother doing this tour, advertising online is completely wrong claiming it’s a tour for 18-35 and a party cruise. It’s none of those things. Defiantly not worth the money paid

Castaways was, without a doubt, one of the highlights of my time in SE Asia (so far!). Worth every penny - I have absolutely no regrets. Be warned however: this is a major party trip. Don’t bother coming if you’re not up for drinking incessantly,...More

Contact Indochine Junk to take you there on their classic sailing junk which was memorable and interesting. They will drop you at Castaway island or Monkey island for a few day to relax and soak up the air of ocean
