Delve Deep: Southern Thailand

Trip Overview

TRIP VIBE = iconic sights and in-depth adventures with a local Trip Leader. There’s more to Southern Thailand than paradisical beaches, picturesque temples and droolworthy pad Thai. Wanna go beyond those bucket list attractions? We got you. Delve deeper into the ‘Land of Smiles’ – we’re talking heaps of culture, tonnes of hidden gems and endless *pinch me* moments. Ready for 12 days of action-packed tropical adventures, plus plenty of free time to do you? This is it.

Worth noting…

Heads up! This trip is a lil longer than our 2023-2024 departures. You’ll have two extra days to explore, plus a few more included experiences. Nice! 

On day 3, you’ll be staying in an awesome eco treehouse. There’s no single supplement available, so you’ll be sharing a room with a few of your trip mates.

    Keen to kick off the adventure? Meet us in Bangkok: Thailand’s temple-stuffed, neon-lit, food-loving capital. First things first, say hello to your fellow adventurers over an included dinner at a local restaurant. Cue = stuffing your face with allll the spring rolls and spicy curry. Afterwards, you’ve got options. Continue your convos at one of the city’s swanky rooftop bars. Get your souvenir shopping sorted early at a night market. Or have a chilled evening back at the hotel. Your trip = your vibe.

    I thought the trip was a good value. Not having to worry about the logistics of getting from place to place and arranging optional activities is well worth the premium built into the cost.

    Had an amazing 10 days with everybody. Only thing I would suggest is to have a bit longer in each location as a lot of the time was taken up travelling between destinations. Other than that, was super exciting!
