So you know the film Bridge Over River Kwai? Been there done that! We’re taking you there! Before we head off to the river, we’re off to do some shopping and not at just any old regular market, but a FLOATING one! Crazy right? We’re shopping via long-tail boat. Grab a snack off a local vendor, or grab a cold one. Next, we’re off to Kanchanaburi! When we have arrived, we get another boat and cruise down the River Kwai enjoying the sight of the bridge (an insta worthy moment fo’ sho’). It’s sunset o’clock and what a better place to watch the sunset than the bridge over River Kwai! Get those poses ready for all the 10/10 shots you’re going to get. You’re welcome.

Imagine, a 7 tier, crystal clear blue waterfall surrounded by lush greenery, sounds unreal right! Erawan falls, just an hour away from Kanchanaburi is pretty much paradise. Something you would expect to see on a national geographic, but we’re here, baby! We know TLC said don’t go chasing waterfalls but ya know, I think we can be excused this once. Make sure you have your swimmers as you’ll want to take a dip. Don’t say we don’t spoil ya! We’ll have some lunch at the waterfalls, gotta stay hydrated and energised from all that walking & swimming! Then we head back to Kanchanaburi, where you can either chill by the pool or explore the town before we meet for dinner and drinks! Buckets, anyone?

Today you have the morning free before we hit the road again! So choose to spend this morning how you please, whether that’s by the pool or exploring the town. Next, we are off to Ayutthaya, an ancient capital city, if you’re looking to see culture & history, then you’re in the right place! We’ll hop on some bikes and cycle around the world heritage site, 10/10 views, we’ll also learn about the fascinating history of Ayutthaya and of course, the kingdom of Siam which is what Thailand used to be called (fun fact for ya!). Time to grab a bite to eat and then it’s all aboard the night train to Chiang Mai! The train is comfortable, you get your own bed with pillows and covers, comfort is key! So it shouldn’t be too hard to get a decent night sleep ready to take on a new place in the morning! Chiang Mai, we’re coming for you.

 Did someone say TruExclusive? Hell yeah, we did! You won’t find this experience anywhere else. If you’re looking for an authentic Thai experience, THIS IS IT. We are off to do one of the most popular activities in Northern Thailand, a trek through the jungle. The trek doesn’t require a high level of fitness, but it is a bit of a challenge SO beers will be very well deserved afterwards! We’ll spend one night in a hill tribe village homestay so that you can experience what life is like for the many traditional hill tribes of Northern Thailand, You’ll see their lives have not changed a huge amount for generations. Fall asleep to the sound of local wildlife, an experience in itself.

Freshen up in the clear waters after an insightful evening with the hill tribe, dry off and we’re on our way back to Chiang Mai! Today's also the day we will get to see some Elephants! We’re to visit an elephant sanctuary here in Chiang Mai, animal welfare is extremely close to our hearts, and we visit a dedicated elephant rehabilitation sanctuary. The elephants here are free to roam and not here for the entertainment of tourists. We visit to educate ourselves on one of Thailand’s most popular native animals but to also redistribute funds to programmes that do good. This is a once in a lifetime experience, a memory you’ll cherish forever, no doubt!

Fly from platform to platform through the canopy of the jungle up to 50m above the ground, throw in some rope bridges and a few abseils. You’ll experience the jungle in an entirely different (and much faster) way than walking through it at ground level.

It’s like something out of a movie, incredible stuff! It’s now time to give your muscles a break, as we head to the hot springs which are situated in the jungle and are heated by geothermal activity. Take a dip in the crystal clear water, treat yourself to a clay mask and just have the ultimate relaxation session in the warm temperatures. We’ll then head to the waterfall nearby with an amazing view! Who needs a waterpark when we have one better, a waterfall with a natural slide! We’ll finish this incredible day at Pai Canyon which means even more amazing views of the surrounding mountains and jungle, and even better, we’ll be there at sunset! So take yo’ pics and take in the insane view before heading back to Pai town. In the evening we’ll head to a nice restaurant and a few chilled bars where we can mingle with other backpackers too.

Now it’s time for us to turn those ingredients we picked into some tasty meals! Don’t fret, you’ll be shown how to cook the recipes step by step!

So we all know the Grand Canyon but do you know of Chiang Mai’s very own Grand Canyon? Well, if not, don’t worry as you’ll get to know! This is an old excavation site, where they would dig out sand for building etc. However, now it is a man-made lagoon which has turned into an adult playground, we LOVE to see it! There are countless slides, floating chairs to lay in, paddleboards, tubes and then for the brave-hearted.. have a go at cliff jumping, deep water soloing or climbing on their climbing wall. Take yo’ pick! There’s a restaurant there on-site, so we can grab our lunch, refresh and energise ourselves! In the evening, we head out into Chiang Mai for more dinner and drinks!

We’re up and enjoying a spot of breakfast before we head to Koh Phangan. Koh Phan - waaaaaat! Koh Phangan baby! And boy, have we got a day ahead for you! The ultimate TruExclusive! You won’t get this shiz anywhere else. We’re taking you to Bottle beach where we’ll spend the night! A hidden gem in Thailand, it’s quiet, It’s beautiful and only accessible by boat. The island is pretty remote, so don’t be surprised if we have the place to ourselves! We stay in beach huts with the ocean at our doorstep. Complete and utter bliss. Relax here for the rest of the afternoon, gallivant around in the sea, or challenge the rest of the TruCrew to the ultimate game of beach volleyball. Whatever you fancy doing, it’s your day. Our only advice, don’t forget to slap on some sun cream! It gets hot! In the evening, we enjoy dinner together. Cocktails are flowing, the suns going down as we sit on the beach..campfire lit. Can this get any better? Yes! We have our very own private fire show! It’s getting hot in here, baby!

Wake up to the calming sounds of the waves rolling in onto the beach. Are you dreaming? Nope! This is your reality. Wake up in paradise, the morning is free to spend as you please. Grab a kayak and get out on the water, top up that already golden tan or trek to the local viewpoint. Hey if you want a lazy morning and lay in, do that instead catch up on some zzz’s. In the afternoon, we are collected and taken to a local gym to try our hand at Muay Thai boxing. Thailand’s national sport. You might not be a natural, but you’ll deffo learn a thing or two! We then head to our next accommodation. A beach hostel where we’ll spend the next 2 nights. If you fancy a few evening drinks, your travel Ninja is there to take you out and show you the coolest bars in Haad Rin. They’re in the know.. Ya know?

Time to set off on a voyage around Koh Phangan! Grab a welcome drink as we board the boat, and the music starts playing as we set off to explore the island. We know we know, we travel in style. Throughout the day we’ll stop off, grab the snorkels and mask and dive it! Thailand marine life is out of this world, so snorkelling is a must-do! We’ll check out some of the best beaches on the island. Play our favourite beach game of volleyball, take a dip in the sea or tackle a human pyramid on the sand with your TruFam. Whatever you fancy. In the evening, we head back to our hotel to chill out by the pool before freshening up for a fun night out. Yes, we said it we’re going out OUT!

We're going on an epic island road trip and we will see some incredible waterfalls, beaches and viewpoints on the way - get your cameras ready! In the evening, we'll meet in our hostel for the ultimate UV painting session to get us ready for The Full Moon Party. It’s legendary, it’s spectacular, and you couldn’t be with a better crew.

If you’re hardcore enough to make it to sunrise (It’s the best part) join us at the after-party which starts at 6am. You know the old saying.. No rest for the wicked aye?

*Please note, The Full Moon Party is on a specific date each month so our activities can sometimes shuffle around, but don’t stress, you won’t miss anything!*

It’s been a wild few days and today is set aside for recovery. Chill, recharge, rehydrate. It was a big night, so the only thing we have planned today is a relaxing Thai massage and possibly winding down in the evening with a film at a local bar. If you were one of the crazy 10/10 party animals who only just made it in for breakfast, spend the day in bed, catch up on some sleep or grab an amazing 7/11 toastie. The ultimate hangover cure. However, you’re feeling we’ve got options for you!

Of course, we’re family now.

WHERE WE STAY

bangkok

We start our Northern Thailand Adventure in Bangkok!! This hotel is located right next to the famous Khao San Road, so it's right in the centre of all the fun. This hotel is also the perfect place to relax after your long journey or to nurse a hangover with a dip in the pool. If you like to get stuck in and explore, tourist sights like The Grand Palace are sooo close.

 

*Please note all accomodation is subject to change- but it will always be great and of an equal standard! If you would like to confirm the accomodation for your trip please contact the sales team on info@trutravels.com*

kanchanaburi

Our next stop is Kanchanaburi. This hotel is in a peaceful location, with a great pool right by the River Kwai. The ideal spot for escaping the city vibes of Bangkok. With a great bar and restaurant area overlooking the water, you won't want to leave!

chiang mai

Further up north we go! Next stop, Chiang Mai. Another great accommodation with a lovely pool! It's also the perfect location being in the middle of the old town, there's lots of shops, cafes and resturants to explore - what could be better!

pai

The last stop on our amazing 2-week tour is Pai, our favourite Thai hippie town and our chosen resort is in the centre of the fun. It's a short walk from the lively Walking Street and very close to Pai's historical Temple and all of the other attractions Pai has to offer. It's also run by an amazing local family who always make the experience in Pai super special. When you're not exploring Pai, you can sunbathe on the sun terrace, take a dip in the pool or there's the option of a soothing massage!

khao sok

Ok, welcome to paradise! Sleeping in floating bungalows is everyone's DREAM, right!? Imagine waking up surrounded by calm waters that are crystal clear and an idyllic blue... well, that's what you get at the floating resort in Khao Sok National Park! Each of the 30 bungalows has its own veranda, perfect to lie on and watch the jungle night sky. There's also a bar area to get your beer fix and a chill space for the evenings.

bottle beach

Welcome to Bottle Beach and your own little beach hut overlooking the ocean. That's right, this accommodation is pretty special. Not only do you get to stay in a beach hut, but the beach is secluded and we pretty much get it allll to ourselves. So chill in your hammock and take in the sights, grab a cocktail and wait for the beach bonfire to start!

koh phangan

After our night on Bottle Beach, staring up at the stars as we sleep by a beach bonfire, we move onto our second Koh Phangan destination. What you wouldn't expect is that we move from one secluded beach to the next. Our hotel has its own private beach!! Unreal, right? So you can chill, sip on a cocktail and soak up all the good vibes either in the gorgeous pool, by the bar or on the secluded beach.
