Where will I be going?

Bangkok

Same-same, but different - You’ll hear this phrase spoken repeatedly during your travels around Bangkok and as one of the most visited cities in the world, Bangkok definitely puts its own unique twist on everyday life. A hotbed of contradiction, exchange a greeting with a Buddhist monk before diving into the social hubbub of Khao San Road.

Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan

Famous for its Full Moon Party at Haad Rin Beach you’ll see it transform as partygoers turn the (normally) peaceful beach into a nightclub! When the party’s over you’re left with endless white sandy beaches, perfect for you to recover and ready to do it all over again.

Surin

Situated in the valley of the Mun River, a tributary of the Mekong, scattered with temples waiting to be explored you’d be forgiven for thinking Surin is just a rural town. However if you’re visiting Surin in November you can’t afford to miss the famous for the Surin Elephant Round-up when the town transforms!

Koh Tao

Koh Tao

Literally translated as ‘Turtle Island’, Koh Tao is the breeding ground for hawksbill and green turtles making it a must-visit spot for wildlife and diving lovers alike. Give snorkelling a go in the day and party in the bars in the evening!

Khao Yai National Park

Thailand’s most popular and beautiful national park is nestled in the Sankamphaeng mountain range, home to a mix of wildlife from the Asian black bear to the Indian elephant. Famous for its waterfalls and with over 50km of hiking trails, kayaking and rafting there’s no shortage of activities for fans of the great outdoors.
