Temples & River Cruise

See Thailand’s capital city by tuk tuk, visiting two prestigious temples – Wat Arun and Wat Pho, to see the very impressive giant & gold reclining Buddha statue. We’ll also see the city from the water as we travel by longtail boat along the Chao Phraya River. Enjoy the afternoon at your own pace. Explore, eat, or even try some bartering at one of the many street vendors that can be found throughout the city. You can sometimes get as much as 50% off the original price if you’re willing to haggle! Meet with the rest of the group in the evening for dinner and no doubt, drinks on Khao San Rd. Buckets anyone?

Enjoy a Thai massage in the morning, before boarding a sleep train for the night, a truly authentic Thai experience. You’ll get your very own berth on the train, and it’s a great place to get to know the rest of your group a little better. We travel south, out of Bangkok, towards Khao Sok National Park – situated in the Surat Thani province of Thailand. Watching the scenery change from a sprawling cityscape to countryside dotted throughout by limestone mountains is definitely something you won’t forget in a hurry

Head via longtail boat, into Khao Sok National Park to our floating bungalows, stopping for a quick dip along the way at a couple of instagram-worthy locations. Try your hand at some kayaking or chill with a cold beer in a tube in front of the absolutely stunning backdrop of the surrounding limestone mountain range. You’ll soon see why this place is, and always will be, a TruTravels favourite destination.

Day 5


Wake up in your floating bungalow and why not take a quick dip in the freshwater lake before breakfast. After a relaxed morning, we make our way over to Koh Phangan; an island to the east. Once we get there, we go straight to a place called Bottle Beach, another one of our favourite locations! It’s beautiful, quiet, accessible only by boat, and to make it even better, we get the whole place pretty much to ourselves, staying in beach bungalows pretty much right on the water. Relax here for the rest of the day on the beach or in the bar. After dinner, we’ll all enjoy a bonfire on the beach, complete with a fire show.
