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 - Sukhothai - Chiang Mai - Thaton - Chiang Rai

    DAY 1 - BANGKOK
    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.

    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. Travel to Sukhothai - 'The Dawn of Happiness'. Ride bicycles around the temples and other archaeological relics in Sukhothai's historic area. Visit a local pottery factory in the area.

    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. Set off on an excursion to the top of Doi Suthep, with fantastic views over the city. Perhaps get a traditional Thai massage or even partake in a cooking class. Why not visit the Night Bazaar a great chance to practice those bargaining skills.

    DAY 5-7 - THATON - CHIANG RAI - THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE
    Spend a cheeky few hours in Burma before we learn a bit about the opium trade in the Golden Triangle (this is the bit where Laos, Burma and Thailand meet. It has a pretty sordid little history).

    DAY 8 - CHIANG MAI - OVERNIGHT TRAIN
    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. Shop for bargains, eat in exotic restaurants and perhaps hit some bars or nightclubs. 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!
