Itinerary

BANGKOK

Landing in Bangkok, we’ll meet you at the airport and take you to your luxury 4 star hotel located close to all the action. Meet up with your travel crew and get excited for the adventures to come.

BANGKOK

Today we’ll explore the city’s legendary canals by long-tail boat, taking in the floating markets and local ways of life. We’ll then stop by some of the city’s most sacred and famous temples, travelling by tuk tuk through the wild and crazy streets, before experiencing some amazing nightlife! If you love Thai food, you’ll be seriously into what comes the next day as we learn the secrets of Thai cooking with a hands on class.

KHAO SOK

Prepare to feel like you’re having a 'pinch me' moment as we make our way to our next stop. Winding through magical limestone cliffs on a traditional long tail boat, we’ll reach our floating bungalow home for the night in the dreamy Khao Sok National Park. You’ll then spend the rest of the day kayaking, tubing and monkey spotting.

KHAO SOK

Travelling deeper into the untouched rainforest, today we’ll experience local life as we visit a sustainable family farm. We’ll then grab our swimmers and jump into a beautiful turquoise river, where we’ll kayak or tube towards our tree house home for the night.

KOH PHANGAN

Soak up the best of island life. Swim and snorkel around beautiful tropical islands, learn the art of Muay Thai Boxing or relax with a Yoga class. Then work on your tan with a cocktail by the pool before partying the night away on the beach!

PHI PHI ISLANDS

Swapping one island paradise for another, today we’ll wave goodbye to Koh Phangan and say ‘sawasdee’ to Phi Phi. Arriving late afternoon, we’ll check in to our beautiful resort then head out for dinner, drinks and a beach party.

PHI PHI ISLANDS

Don’t forget your snorkel and sunscreen as we’ll be heading off via private speedboat around the beautiful Phi Phi Leh to visit hidden lagoons and snorkelling in clear waters. The following day, we’ll hike to one of Phi Phi’s best viewpoints, then chill out on the island’s best beaches. Then we travel to Phuket and check in to our beautiful boutique 4 star hotel. *There is a possibility we may not be able to enter right into Maya Bay at certain times of year due to government closures

PHUKET

Ending the trip on a high, today we’ll be spending the day with Thailand’s most sacred animal - elephants. We’ll get up close and personal with the gentle giants at a sanctuary and learn about how they are rescued and cared for.

HANOI

Goodbye Thailand, hello Vietnam! Landing in Hanoi after an included flight we’ll take you to your boutique hotel. The next day we'll jump straight into the hustle of Hanoi with a walking and rickshaw tour of the city. Tasty street food will keep us going as we soak in the intoxicating energy of the capital. This evening we’ll head out for dinner and a drinks to see what Hanoi has to offer after dark.

SAPA VILLAGE

From Hanoi to the hills, this morning we’ll take a VIP limousine bus to uncover dazzling scenery in northern Vietnam. We’ll meet locals from different ethnic groups, learning about how they live together peacefully whist retaining their distinctive cultures, before heading up the Muong Hoa valley on a short trek. Passing villages oozing with culture, we’ll stay overnight with a local family. To wrap up the day we’ll learn more about local customs and ways of life over a traditional dinner, washing it all down with a little rice wine.

SAPA

Today is all about enjoying the post-card perfect landscapes as we trek through terraced hills. This afternoon a quick drive takes us back to Sapa, where we will check in to our beautiful mountain-side hotel and kick up our feet for a well-earned rest. The next day, have the option of taking the cable car up Fan Si Pan Peak. With a summit over 3100m, this viewpoint boasts extravagant views! This evening we’ll board an overnight train for comfortable trip back to Hanoi.

HA LONG BAY

From Hanoi we’ll travel to Ha Long Bay to board the luxurious boat that’ll be our home for the night. Famous for emerald waters, limestone islands, magical caves, and thick rainforests, we’ll see this world heritage site up close as we kayak, swim, and laze on the sundeck. In the evening enjoy a sunset from the deck and tuck into a fresh dinner before some drinks. It doesn’t get much better than this!

NINH BINH

Today the rice paddies and vast mountains of Ninh Binh await. We'll make the most of our serene surroundings as we cosy up in traditional bungalows by the river at a local homestay. We’ll hop on two wheels to weave through rice paddies before taking a local rowboat through a network of rivers and caves. A hike up to Dragon Mountain viewpoint will reward us with epic views! We’ll then board our surprisingly comfortable overnight train bound for Hoi An.

HOI AN

Go shopping, stroll the alleys, or even visit a local tailor to get a custom suit or dress made before our night out. The next day local fisherman will teach us the art of crab fishing. We’ll then take part in a hands-on cooking class to become masters of all things Vietnamese cuisine! The afternoon is yours to chill by the pool or get a massage. We'll then enjoy more amazing food and heading over to the bustling vibrant night markets.

HOI AN

Today you’ll try your hand at making an awesome Vietnamese souvenir – a lantern! Then we’ll take a short bicycle ride through idyllic fields to the coast for a chilled beach day with some lunch at a cool beach club. If we’re lucky we’ll be treated to a colourful sunset before heading back to the hotel for a free and chilled evening.

HO CHI MINH CITY

Today we have a chilled morning to soak up the last bits of Hoi An then catch our flight to Ho Chi Minh City - one of Asia’s most exhilarating hubs. We’ll head straight out onto the streets for some dinner, then up to a rooftop bar for drinks overlooking Ho Chi Minh’s modern skyline.

MEKONG DELTA

Today we head to the lush beauty of the Mekong Delta for a special overnight experience. We’ll get a serious culture fix as we explore a more authentic Vietnam, seeing how locals live and work on the river and checking in to our riverside accommodation for the evening.

HO CHI MINH CITY

At the Cu Chi tunnels, we’ll learn how this hand-dug underground network played a crucial role in the Vietnam War, providing supply routes, hideouts, and living quarters for soldiers. Arriving back into Ho Chi Minh City, we’ll dress sharp for our farewell dinner and party this evening.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Lots of people on our trips are travelling solo. But by doing our trip you’ll instantly be part of a group, so it’s a great way to meet others and make friends! Most of our accommodation is twin or triple share, so we will put you in a room with someone of the same gender.

Just let us know who you’re travelling with after you’ve booked and your relationship to them, and we’ll organise appropriate room shares for you. Our booking system takes one booking at a time, so if you’re booking for multiple people just complete a separate booking for each person. It’s super quick and easy!

No worries. Unless you tell us otherwise we’ll automatically book you into our accommodation from the day you arrive, and then you can just pay for your extra nights on arrival. If you’re staying at our accommodation we will provide a personal airport pick up even if you arrive early. 

It’s always a good time to go travelling in Thailand and Vietnam. Most months of the year you will experience sunshine and possibly some rain. It’s usually quite hot and humid, but it can occasionally get cold, especially in the north of Vietnam between November and February, so it’s always best to bring a couple of warm layers with your summer clothing.

All your activities, accommodation, transport and some meals are included with South East Asia Experience, so you’ll just need money for some meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least £700 / $1200 spending money.

It’s best to take a Visa or Master Card debit, credit or travel money card. There are ATM’s available throughout South East Asia so it’s easy to get access to cash. Some places accept credit card but not all.

Most accommodations we stay at have free Wi-Fi available. Thailand and Vietnam’s network quality is often lower than you’re used to but you can generally connect and do basic stuff. 

We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s generally quite hot in South East Asia so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun. There is luggage storage at the airport or at some accommodations if needed.

Your destination or airline may have COVID-19 vaccination or testing requirements to enter. It is your responsibility to adhere to these requirements to ensure your arrival is not impacted and you can join your tour without issue.
