Thailand Expedition Summer
Thailand Expedition Summer
The trip in a nutshell
Thailand tour: an organised backpacking trip amidst the charm of royal palaces, lush jungle and dream beaches.
Our Thailand tour will leave you open-mouthed: a group tour with a breathtaking itinerary that will let you discover this land of a thousand facets, combining the country's most iconic sites such as the Unesco World Heritage archaeological park of Ayutthaya with wilder and more local experiences such as spending the night in the middle of the jungle as guests of local partners, following the tracks of routes less known to tourists from all over the world. From Bangkok to Ko Phangan and back, each stage of our organised trip will give you the chance to fully experience the Land of Smiles and its culture. Royal palaces, nature reserves dedicated to the protection of elephants and native vegetation, dream beaches of white sand and crystal clear sea and unforgettable nights will be the main theme of our trip. The protagonists will be us, ready to live these 13 days in Thailand backpacking to the full, with an immense desire to go beyond our limits!
There are 1300km of road travel concentrated in the first few days and two internal flights. In the first few days the pace and schedule are intense and then relax in the second part of the trip. A travel backpack is compulsory and not a suitcase as there are eight hotel changes and overnight stays in the jungle.
A minimum of physical effort is expected for nature walks, all sports activities are optional.
