Thailand Tours

Thailand. It's going to blow your mind. Let's start with the full moon parties. A while ago, some tourists found the most beautiful moon was in Koh Phangan. So, they decided to toast its beauty. Then the whole world joined in. Now, every year between 10,000 and 30,000 people hit sandy beaches all over Thailand for the infamous full moon parties.

Immerse yourself in Thailand

Thailand really is a country where you can go crazy. The booze is cheap, the food is cheap and each part of Thailand has its own personality. If you can, take a few weeks to travel around Thailand and make sure you take a Phuket tour, Bangkok tour and a Chiang Mai tour at least.

Phuket is the gateway to heaps of cool islands and hotspots including 'The Beach'. That's in Maya Bay just a short boat ride from Phi Phi Island – also a seriously cool party place. Phuket tours are a sweet way to start your Thailand adventure. And for something different, you could even look into a Phuket sailing tour – such a great way to island hop!

In Bangkok, it's all about street food, street markets and street parties! Bangkok street vendors are probably the best way to get your fix of authentic Thai cuisine. And if you're a shopper, say hello to bargain central. Just remember to get your barter on. For a different market experience, check out the floating markets in Damnoen Saduak. And the best thing about Bangkok tours? The nightlife. Things will surely get a little wild. Be ready.

Head up north for a Chiang Mai tour. Chiang Mai is a culturally rich destination and very peaceful with over 300 temples. While there's still plenty of action here, it's not as crazy as Bangkok or Phuket so Chiang Mai might be a good end to your Thailand trip.

    HIGHLIGHTS: Bangkok - Chiang Mai - Hilltribe Trek

    Greet Thailand with a few beers, get to know Thailand during a hill tribe trek, and fall in love with Thailand over a romantic, preferably deep-fried meal (which will taste even better after the trek). You won't want to leave, and that's OK.

    DAY 1-2: BANGKOK - OVERNIGHT TRAIN
    You're officially on holidays. We think that deserves a toast. Our pick for cocktails is Bed Supper Club or Vertigo. Ask your guide for directions or grab your new mates and attempt to navigate the Skytrain. Arrive in Bangkok and get to grips with this awesome city. Catch the overnight train to Chiang Mai

    DAY 3: CHIANG MAI
    Temples, markets and food. That's Chiang Mai in a nutshell. You could take a cooking class if you want, or go temple-hopping, get a massage or watch the sunset from Doi Suthep. You could probably do all of the above, as long as you save time for the night bazaar (which happens at night).

    DAY 4-6: HILLTRIBE TREK - CHIANG MAI
    Time for the trek. Hike among rice paddies and along shady tracks to isolated villages. Sleep in bush huts and mingle with remote hilltribe people. Their way of life will not fail to enlighten you, like a flashlight on your soul, or something more poetic. Attend a briefing before setting off on our three day trek. Meet local people in various villages, each with their own unique language, customs and dress. Walk for approximately four hours or less each day so there's no great rush. Please take into account that the ground is muddy and slippery during the rainy season (around July - October). The exact itinerary of the trek changes from time to time, taking into account the weather and local conditions. Carry your personal belongings in a daypack and leave your main luggage at the hotel. All meals while on the trek are provided, but you need to carry and purchase your own water along the way (please allow US$8 for the entire trek). Accommodation is multishare, sleeping on fold-out mattresses on the floors of the wooden/bamboo huts typical of the villages. There are shared squat toilets and basic washing facilities in most villages (ie. hose or water pipe) or we may be able to wash in a nearby stream. Warmer clothing and sleeping bags are recommended from November to January. Most trekking gear (sleeping bags, mats, small packs, etc) can be rented in Chiang Mai Return to Chiang Mai on the afternoon of Day 6.

    DAY 7: CHIANG MAI - OVERNIGHT TRAIN
    Time to revisit the whole "Shopping, massaging and eating" schedule in Chiang Mai. You deserve it after your trek. The overnight sleeper train to Bangkok is an experience. We'll leave it at that. Spend a free day exploring the northern city of Chiang Mai, with over 120 temples in the centre alone. Maybe off on an excursion to the top of Doi Suthep, with fantastic views over the city, or to Wat Chiung Man, a peaceful temple in the old city with inscriptions dating from 1581. Take an overnight sleeper train to Bangkok

    DAY 8: BANGKOK
    Arrive back in Bangkok and do all the things you didn't get to do at the beginning of the week. You'll regret it if you don't. The trip finishes on arrival at Bangkok train station at about 7am. If you are leaving Thailand today, don't book a flight departing before midday as train delays can and do occur

    DAY 2 - SUKHOTHAI
    Apparently riding a bike helps build new brain cells in the hippocampus - the bit of your brain responsible for memory (sadly not a university for hippos). So you'll never forget all the temples you see today.

    DAY 3-4 - CHIANG MAI
    And early start for the trip to Chiang Mai. Temples, museums and hill tribe villages are all on the cards once you've arrived. Spend a free day exploring the northern city of Chiang Mai, with over 120 temples in the centre alone.

    Catch a local bus back to Chiang Mai, then overnight sleeper train to Bangkok

    DAY 9-10 - BANGKOK
    Trying to find the best food in Bangkok is like trying to spot the real girls at a Ladyboy show: impossible - it's all just so good. Find the nearest street food vendor and tuck in. Visit some of Bangkok's most famous sights, including the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Enjoy the rest of the day to further explore the city. Trip ends after breakfast on Day 10.

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
