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 fed 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 drink to see what Hanoi has to offer after dark.

TA VAN VILLAGE (SAPA)

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 before heading up the Muong Hoa Valley on a short trek. Passing villages oozing with culture, we’ll stay overnight with a local family in Ta Van Village. 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 and get on the luxurious boat that’ll be home for the night. Famous for emerald waters, limestone islands, 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.

NINH BINH

Discover the magical Ninh Binh, a beautiful landscape of endless rice paddies and epic limestone mountains. We’ll make the most of our serene surroundings as we cosy up in traditional bungalows by the river at a local homestay. Explore the countryside by bike, then take a local boat through a network of rivers and caves before tackling the iconic Dragon Mountain Viewpoint.

HOI AN

An internal flight will take us to the charming, historical Hoi An. Go shopping, stroll the alleys, or even visit a local tailor to get a custom suit or dress made. Tonight we head out for some dinner and drinks to experience the nightlife of this vibrant town.

HOI AN

Local fishermen will be our guides as we weave through coconut groves learning the art of crab fishing. We’ll then take part in a hands-on cooking class! The afternoon is yours to chill by the pool or go full holiday mode with a massage. This evening we’ll treat ourselves to a Bamboo show, a cultural experience like no other. We'll take a short bicycle ride the next day for a chilled beach day to enjoy dinner and drinks by the sea.

HO CHI MINH CITY

Today we have a chilled morning to soak up the last bits of unforgettable Hoi An, then will catch our second flight to Ho Chi Minh City. 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

We'll 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 a family-run homestay for the evening.

HO CHI MINH CITY

Discover the Cu Chi Tunnels, a fascinating network of underground tunnels used as supply routes and living quarters during the Vietnam War. We'll then head out for our farewell dinner and party!

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.

You can start chatting to people in your group and other travellers before you leave. Just go to our Facebook page, click on ‘Groups’ and choose your country.

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.

There are no compulsory vaccinations for any of our destinations and all areas we travel to are very low risk. But if you’re unsure or need advice we recommend visiting your local GP.

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.
