Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Time For Thailand

Let your Thailand adventure begin! We pick you up at the airport and head to your home for the next two days. Everyone gathers for the welcome gathering at 6pm in the lobby. You'll then set off for a traditional Thai style dinner followed by a night on Khao San Road. Arriving early? No problem. Spend the day shopping at Khao San Road (walking distance from the hotel) or soak up the sun by the hotel pool.

  • Meals Included Dinner
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included Airport Transfer, Thai Feast, Khao San Road
Day 2

Temples & Thai Massage

Experience the best of the bustling city of Bangkok - an adrenaline rush to all five senses! You'll explore by boat, by foot, and by... tuk-tuk. Ride the river boat along the mighty Chao Praya, wind through the city streets in a tuk tuk, visit the must-see temples, and end with a one hour traditional Thai massage. Spend the night with your new mates for Khao San Road Round II or just relax by the pool.

  • Meals Included Breakfast
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included Tuk-Tuk Tour, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Thai Massage
Day 3

Ancient Ayutthaya

Time to explore the ancient capital of Siam - the former name of Thailand - Ayutthaya. These age-old ruins provide a welcomed contrast to the ever-buzzing madness of Bangkok. Be prepared for stunning sights and a near-endless amount of golden photo opportunities. After, we are on the way to Singburi for sunset and a relaxing evening in the countryside with your new mates.

  • Meals Included Breakfast
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included History Park, Reclining Buddha
Day 4

Scenic Singburi

Wake up on the waterfront - scenic, serene, and surrounded by nature. Start with a quick but thorough Thai language lesson. Then head to a local temple to get blessed by a monk as he recites prayers and provides a refreshing spritz of holy water signifying the cleansing of sins. After two nights in Bangkok, some might require a bit more holy water than others! Finish the day relaxing poolside at a quiet countryside resort in Saphanburi.

  • Meals Included Breakfast
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included Wat Phra Non, Language Lesson
Day 5

Countryside Chill Time

Four days on the move calls for some downtime! No better way than catching some sun poolside at the hotel with your new mates - drinking games included. If pool parties aren’t your thing, no problem! The resort also offers fishing ponds for any fishing fanatics, a 9-hole golf course, and a sprawling setting perfect for wandering bicycle rides.

  • Meals Included Breakfast, Dinner
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included Group Games, Pool Party
Day 6

Erawan National Park

Off to Erawan National Park after for some serious bonding time around the fire. There will be sunset swims, fireside chats, Thailand-style BBQ, and a relaxing night spent camped out along the Khwae Yai River.

  • Meals Included Breakfast, Dinner
  • Room Type Camping
  • Activities Included River Kwai Bridge, Erawan National Park
Day 7

Erawan Waterfalls

Bliss is this! Trek into the jungle and past the seven waterfalls of Erawan National Park as the emerald waters stream down from the hilltop. Photo opportunities abound and there is no shortage of inviting pools to stop for a refreshing swim. This is truly an incredible experience and not one to be missed! You don’t have to trek all the way to the top, but the further you trek, the more brilliant the viewpoints become.

  • Meals Included None
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included Erawan Waterfalls
Day 8

Elephant Sanctuary

This is one happy herd of elephants! The Elephant Nature Park is a new addition to our tour and we could not be more proud to support this group. This is a highly-vetted, no harness, no chain, no nonsense organization - spread out through Thailand, Cambodia, and Myanmar - that rescues and rehabilitates everyone’s favorite pachyderms (as well as an array of other animals in need). Spend a full day walking, feeding, and bathing these beautiful creatures.

  • Meals Included Lunch
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included Elephant Camp
Day 9

Local School Visit

We stop by a local Thai school to surprise the students and make their day. Give gifts, help out with school work, get in a game of football, or just sit down for a chat and make some new friends. You did your good deed for the day and now the nighttime festivities kick off. Then back to our hotel to some chill time by the pool, explore the many sights of Kanchanaburi, or head out for a night on the town!

  • Meals Included None
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included Thai School
Day 10

Homestay Cooking Lesson

The Maeklong Railway Market is a bustling market that is set up on the tracks of a train that passes through several times per day. Witness as vendors quickly and casually take down their stalls, wait for the train to pass, set up shop again and get on with business as usual. End the day at our welcoming homestay with your first cooking lesson in Thailand: Som tam - a sweet and spicy papaya salad served with mouth-watering fried chicken and sticky rice made by our host family.

  • Meals Included Lunch
  • Room Type Homestay
  • Activities Included Train Market, Som Tam Cooking Lesson
Day 11

Floating Market

Monks aren't allowed to cook so we make sunrise breakfast offerings. They respond by sharing merit, spreading goodwill and, of course, the teachings of Buddha. Then we're off to Thailand's iconic Amphawa Floating Market to explore. There are dozens of stalls selling everything from sweet grilled meats to local-made handicrafts and clothing - perfect gifts for everyone back home. Back to the homestay after for your second cooking lesson of a Thai food favorite - pad thai!

  • Meals Included Breakfast, Lunch
  • Room Type Hotel
  • Activities Included Monk Merit Making, Monk Water Blessing, Floating Market, Cooking Lesson
Day 12

Until Next Time

Your Thailand tour is over but the past three weeks will stick with you for a lifetime. You have free use of the hotel's facilities in Bangkok until your departure including the pool and bag storage room. Get in one last breakfast together before you head to the airport on your pre-arranged airport transfer. Some will continue on in their journey - others will head back home. No matter what you choose to do, this is hopefully just the beginning of many future adventures!

  • Meals Included Breakfast
