Extra information

Arrive in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) on day 1, where a member of the local team will meet you and take you to our starting accommodation in the heart of the city.

Your amazing trip ends in Phuket. If you’re heading home, it is best to arrange your flights so you can fly home from Phuket.

Please ensure you leave enough time to transit if your return flight is out of Bangkok.

Group sizes vary but for this trip the average is 16 people. This is a relatively small group, which means you’ll get lots of your tour guide’s time, and have a more personal, bespoke experience.

This trip is designed for those aged 18-39. No special level of fitness is required for this trip but there are some light activities included, from yoga and snorkelling to hiking.
