Thailand on a Shoestring
Perfect for those looking to experience northern Thailand’s cultural treasures and the natural beauty of its southern islands. This 15-day trip will help you get off the beaten path with a trek to the region’s hilltribes but remains flexible enough to suit all tastes. From the lush hills of the north, stitched through with the diverse colours of its hilltribes, to the soft sands of the south and the glorious chaos of Bangkok, Thailand will leave you captivated.
Experience the bustling streets of Bangkok, explore colourful Chiang Mai, trek to remote hilltribe villages, float down a river on a bamboo raft, enjoy the island beaches of Koh Phangan and Koh Tao, take a longtail boat tour of Cheow Lan Lake, check out the marine life with a snorkelling trip
