TruTravels 8 day Thai Experience - Thailand - Bangkok - Khao Sok - Koh Phangan

Discover the best parts of Thailand on our eight day Thailand Experience tour. This group adventure is the ideal way to make the most of your first week in Thailand. All the worries you may have at the beginning of your travels will be taken care of by us. You’ll be greeted at the airport by one of our awesome western group leaders who will introduce you to the rest of the group, and be with you all week to ensure you have an amazing and trouble free trip! We take care of all accommodation, transport and activities so you can just relax and enjoy the experience of a lifetime.


Day 1 - Arrival

When you land, don't worry, we will pick you up at the airport, and take you directly to your hotel. Depending on when you arrive, you may get to meet some of your tour-buddies at the airport! In the evening we go out on the infamous Khao San Road for drinks and for a delicious dinner.

Day 2 - Temples and River Cruise

Travelling through Bangkok via tuk-tuks then on a private longtail boat along the Chao Phraya River, you’ll explore the best of Bangkok and experience some of Thailand’s heritage. We visit two of the most prestigious temples – Wat Arun and Wat Pho, to see the very impressive giant, gold reclining Buddha statue. The rest of the day is free for exploring/shopping/eating, and in the evening we meet for dinner and drinks.

Day 3 - Thai Spa and Overnight Train

We will treat you to a traditional Thai massage before we travel overnight on the train down south, to Surat Thani. We swap the hustle and bustle of Bangkok for the tranquil lakes of Khao Sok National Park, which is a real eye-treat !

Day 4 - Khao Sok National Park

Head to the awe-inspiring floating bungalows on a longtail boat whilst stopping along the way for a quick dip and dive, cliff jumping if the weather permits it and only if you are up for it. Try your hand at some kayaking or chill with a beer in a tube in front of the stunning backdrop of this limestone mountain range. We’ll be staying in floating bungalows on a fresh-water lake surrounded by rainforest which looks like something out of Jurassic Park!

Day 5 - Bottle Beach

We then travel to Koh Phangan by private mini bus ferry and head to Bottle Beach. Here you will be struck by the absolute beauty of a near secluded beach. You’ll also be treated to home-cooked, authentic Thai food, served to you right there on the beach! We highly recommend the banana daiquiris and fritters.

Day 6 - Thai Activities Day

We then jump on a longtail boat to a neighbouring beach, Chaloklum – you will have a choice of activities in the afternoon (eg: Muay Thai, Archery, Elephant Trekking), before arriving in Haad Rin, home of the Full Moon party.

Day 7 - Boats, Beaches and Waterfalls

We get to explore Koh Phangan by boat, stop to snorkel at some of the best spots and visit some nice beaches and a waterfall. The boat offers a free lunch, free bar/buckets and music so is always a great day out. In the evening we’ll go for a group farewell dinner (on us!) then head down to the beach for drinks.

Day 8 - Today is checkout day...

For those who are continuing on with us, they will be checked into their new accommodation for the next leg of the adventure. For those that are booked on to the 8 day, we will say a very sad goodbye to !

The adventure begins in Bangkok where you will experience the hustle and bustle of a modern Asian city as well as seeing behind the scenes of the old city from a private long tail boat. We visit historical temples, ride tuk tuks, relax with a Thai massage and experience the nightlife of the infamous and hedonistic backpacker haven of Khao San Road.
After Bangkok we head to the undiscovered paradise of Khao Sok National park where we stay in floating bamboo bungalows on a stunning fresh water lake surrounded by mountains and jungle, before heading over to the beautiful tropical island of Koh Phangan.
