  • We’ll send you to paradise of Koh Samui, Koh Tao and even take in a legendary Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan

  • You’ll share the beaches, the stories, the people and the beauty of Thailand through USIT’s social media channels and website.
  • You’ll post regular updates on your trip via our Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter channels
