Simply Thailand QTT

Visiting: Thailand
Trip Duration 12 Days

Budget tour to southern Thailand.

Join us on this overland adventure through tropical southern Thailand. This trip takes us from the bright lights and glittering temples of Bangkok to the palm-fringed and white sand beaches of Krabi. Along the way we learn about the Bridge over the River Kwai, visit cave temples, camp on a remote beach, spend time getting to know locals and explore one of the oldest rainforests in the world. Using a variety of transport and staying in a selection of simple accommodation, it's an adventurous trip that combines some of Thailand's best highlights with remote hideaways, away from the main tourist trail.

Tour Highlights

  • Bangkok - Explore the markets and street food stalls of Bangkok's bustling Chinatown.
  • Khao Sam Roi Yort - Discover the beautiful cave pagoda of Phraya Nakhon and spend a night camping on a deserted beach.
  • Koh Phithak - Try your hand at optional squid fishing and experience warm Thai hospitality on our homestay on the idyllic island of Koh Phithak.
  • Khao Sok National Park -Jungle night walks and swimming in the rivers of this ancient rainforest.
  • Krabi - Relax on the white-sand beaches of Krabi with the option to kayak through mangrove forests.
