This trip is like the perfect Thai green curry - a little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, and one hell of a culture punch. Over 12 days you’ll see, experience, taste and feel all that Thailand has to offer. From learning the art of Muay Thai boxing, to partying full moon style, to sleeping in floating bungalows,  Thai Intro really does do it all (and more). Oh, and did we mention you’ll be doing all this with a knowledgeable Group Leader and an instant crew of new mates? The trip of a lifetime just got even better…

Itinerary

BANGKOK

Landing in Bangkok, we’ll meet you at the airport and take you to your guesthouse in the heart of the travellers district, Khao San Road. 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 Bangkok's most sacred and famous temples, travelling by tuk tuk through the wild and crazy streets, before heading out for some of the best nightlife in the world! 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

Feel like you’re having a 'pinch me' moment as we wind through magical limestone cliffs on a traditional long tail boat, reaching our floating bungalow home for the night in the dreamy Khao Sok National Park. Then spend the rest of the day kayaking, tubing and monkey spotting. Next we'll head to Koh Phangan and check in to Sarana, our exclusive beach side bungalows that come complete with infinity pool, gym and yoga space.

KOH PHANGAN

Today you can do as much or as little as you like. Chill on the beach or by pool or explore the island. This afternoon we’ll be treating you to a traditional Thai massage. The next day is all about exploring the very best of Koh Phangan, including some of the island’s best secret spots and lesser known beaches. You’ll spend the day sun bathing and snorkelling, then this evening we’ll tuck into a tasty beach BBQ.

KOH PHANGAN

All that beach time got you feeling a little lazy? We’ve got just the thing to get you moving - a Muay Thai boxing class or a private yoga class. Tonight’s our last on Koh Phangan, so we’ll be heading out as a group for some after dark fun. Swapping one island paradise for another, we’ll then 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 today as we’ll be heading off on a boat trip around the impossibly beautiful Phi Phi Leh. Snorkelling, kayaking and even an after dark underwater light show are all on the cards, and we’ll top the day off with dinner and drinks under the stars. *There is a possibility we may not be able to enter right into Maya Bay at certain times of year due to government closures

PHI PHI ISLANDS

We’ll kick things off with a hike to one of Phi Phi’s best viewpoints, followed by a private boat trip to some of the most beautiful islands surrounding ours. At dinner tonight you’ll feel salty and satisfied from a day of sun, sea and fun. Your unforgettable 12 day adventure comes to an end the next day.

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.
The great thing about Thailand is it’s usually quite hot all year round, so it’s great to go at any time. There is a slightly higher chance of rain around October and November, however it usually only rains for an hour or so which can be a nice relief from the heat.
All your activities, accommodation, transport and most meals are included, so you’ll just need money for any extra meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least £300 / $500 spending money.
Most accommodations we stay at have free Wi-Fi available. Thailand’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 Thailand so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun. There is luggage storage at the airport or at some accommodations if needed. You’ll also need a small overnight bag for some nights of your trip.

We heard about Intro Travel from a friend who had done the 18 day experience in Thailand previously. On his recommendation and the things we read online we had high expectations of this trip and we were not disappointed. We travelled as a couple and feared this may potentially isolate us from the group initially but this was not the case. From being collected from the airport by our Group Leader India we were made by feel welcomed and valued. Throughout the 12 days myself and my partner felt comfortable, safe and happy. This was mainly down to our group leader India who was absolutely fantastic! She was polite, professional and friendly. I dont think India realises just how good she is at her job. She worked so hard throughout the trip to accommodate and deliver an outstanding service with the fulfillment of her customers always as her priority. On paper, bringing 22 adults of varying ages from across the world with different spoken languages and cultures should not work but it did and it was incredible. This trip to Thialand has opened my heart, broadened my mind and filled me with stories to tell forever. This trip allowed us to really see the best of Thailand in 12 days. We are already looking into our next Intro travel trip to Bali. We're just devastated that India wont be our group leader

Sammy - 23rd Dec 2019

This was my first time solo travelling, I was dead nervous but there was no need to be! The tour was well organized, you see some stunning sights, the accomodation was very nice and I felt the balance of chill days/exploring days was perfect. My tour leader, India, was incredible! She put me at ease straight away and made me feel comfortable, safe and was so friendly and approachable. She couldn't do enough for everyone on the tour! Her knowledge of Thailand is great and she definitely made the tour for me! Would 1000000% recommend!

Gracie - 23rd Dec 2019

The overall trip including what you do, where you go and how it’s organised is great and I would definitely use intro again. However I do feel I got lucky because my group leader Caroline was seriously class. She knew what she needed to know as a guide but at the same time she was a part of our mini family we had and it just wouldn’t have been the same without her. All I can say is thanks Caroline you went above and beyond and any other travellers in the future are lucky to have you.

James - 20th Dec 2019

Pretty awesome trip! Had a fantastic group so that obviously made a big difference! Paige was an awesome tour leader. She had an enthusiastic and positive attitude. Made the whole trip so much better because she got everyone pumped up and excited about the activities.

Melissa - 17th Dec 2019

I think it's safe to say everyone in our group felt extremely lucky to have Caroline as our group leader. We all gelled together right from the first night and a huge reason for that is because Caroline had incredible energy and made sure we were all personally introduced. Not only did Caroline keep us entertained, she was highly professional at all times. Extremely efficient with all the travel organising and never let the positive vibe slip.

Simon - 17th Dec 2019

Hands down this has been the best trip of my life. Totally recommend to anyone slightly scared of travelling on their own. You are guaranteed to get the best experience you can get in Thailand and are in safe hands. Huge shoutout to Laura, my group leader, she was incredible.. Looked after me like her little sister and helped me with swimming and snorkelling when I was super nervous to get into the sea. Catered to Vegetarian food and had no issues

Harshitha - 12th Dec 2019

Absolutely loved it! Exceeded all of my expectations! Paige was an excellent leader especially for her first solo tour, she was constantly bubbly and energetic and made me feel very safe for my first time solo travelling! I loved Khao Sok and nights out in Ko Phagnan as well as the speed boat! Overall loved the experience and would highly recommend to anyone!!! Also made amazing friends!

Mackenzie - 10th Dec 2019

Paige Stone, our group leader, was amazing! This was my first trip to Thailand and she made me feel at ease and safe. She was highly organised, but also made the trip fun with all the activities planned, as well as free time to relax. I can not fault Paige!

Peggy - 9th Dec 2019

The trip overall was an amazing experience! I was travelling solo first time in Asia . This trip was a stress free experience. I met the most amazing people and friends for life . Benjamin was a great leader and highly recommended. He looked after the group. Was getting the whole group involved , took care of everything and was very helpful with anything I asked him . one day I wasn’t feeling very well and he checked if I was ok and saved me dinner at the BBQ . Also to top it off he was great entertainment and made the whole group laugh ! . I will be definitely using intro again in the future . Thank you for the great memorial experience and will recommend to all my friends ! Thanks INTRO!

Tara - 5th Dec 2019

This was actually my 2nd tour with intro travel after doing Vietnam earlier this year. What can I say? Nathan absolutely made it the best experience again for me and the rest of the group. Always interacting with everyone in the group and making everyone feel involved. Top leader. The tour itself was amazing also, I feel it has the right balance of city life, native Thailand rainforest and beaches. 18days I feel was a good amount of time to get the best highlights of Thailand and the activities were all great and available for everyone if they wanted to do them or not. The tour catered for everyone's needs and the best thing is I have a lot of new friends from this amazing experience.

Sean - 27th Nov 2019

Just finished up a 12 day intro travel package in Thailand. Before the trip, I was quite sceptical about how the tour would play out, what the leaders would be like etc. I can honestly say, it was absolutely fantastic. The places we visited were beautiful and all in all, it was the perfect blend of seeing different sites, experiencing the culture and bonding with the group. I believe a big part of the success of the trip was down to our group leaders, Nathan and Ben. We had Ben for a week and Nathan for both weeks. Both guys were great. They were very flexible with the whole group, a bundle of fun to be around but organised enough to keep the trip flowing well. Have nothing but positive things to say about the pair of them and would love be to a part of another tour with them again in the future.

Anonymous - 27th Nov 2019

Absolutely loved this trip! Jeremy was incredible, made us laugh and kept us going with his infectious energy. He knew exactly how to handle the group and dealt with all the different personalities with ease. The tour itself was so well planned and organised. I would have loved to stayed at the National park for longer and possibly slightly better accommodation at Koh Phi phi. I was so impressed with everything included in the tour though and was 100% satisfied with the whole experience. Where do I sign up for the next trip???

Gemma - 23rd Nov 2019

Amazing! First time traveling on my own and I was extremely nervous. Within the first couple of minutes of meeting Jeremy i was already in stitches laughing with him and most of the time at him. I was extremely impressed at how organised he and everything was. Really let me enjoy every moment and relax. I was extremely impressed at how much knowledge he knew about Thai land. And how well he knew the locals. Made me feel really safe. Don’t think I could ever do another holiday that wasn’t Intro Travel or as Jeremy as a leader.

Amy - 23rd Nov 2019

The tour was absolutely amazing, so good that I extended it for an extra couple of days. The activities and accommodation were all brilliant, I had the best time. Though the thing that really made the tour was our guide Laura, she was the perfect mix of fun, assured, knowledgable and capable. And she'sa wonderful singer... We felt in safe hands at all times and all laughed pretty much constantly. Thanks for the unforgettable memories and friends for life.

Eoin - 10th Nov 2019

This was one of the best experiences of my life! Laura was the BEST guide and showed us a really good time! Can't wait to book my next experience

Kaitlyn - 5th Sep 2019

Tour was amazing, travelling alone meant it was the best way to meet people and have a bit more of a structured itinerary. The activities were amazing, wasn’t much more I could have thought of doing. For my first experience of Asia it’s been unreal and I’ll definitely be back!

Martin - 5th Sep 2019

Lauren is a very confident and competent leader. She is highly reliable and versatile in a number of different situations. Lauren is very good at managing large numbers and different personality types to ensure all individuals are enjoying the trip. Lauren takes her responsibilities seriously and maintains a positive balance between friendship and authority. Thanks for a great trip !

Liane - 2nd Sep 2019

Travelling Thailand with intro travel exceeded any expectations I had. I was nervous about travelling to a different country on my own, however once I met my tour guide I felt safe and secure. It was clear where I needed to meet him which supported any anxiety I had once I landed. The activities that were provided on the tour were brilliant and a lot of fun. It covered everything that I wanted to do in Thailand and more. The view points were a particular highlight of mine. They weren't awfully long hikes, which helped during the heat and the views were beautiful. The accommodation was amazing, I felt safe in every place we stayed, and it felt like I was living in luxury. Sarana bungalows were particularly the most special, it was paradise! My tour guide Richard was brilliant, he kept us entertained with interesting stories and ensured that we had an amazing time. He went out of his way to make sure we felt safe and supported any questions and onwards travel that we needed. At times some of the members of the tour group were rude to Richard, this made me feel uncomfortable and I felt it was very unnecessary. However, Richard handled this is dignity and respect, which is admirable. It didn't stop Richard from ensuring that they and everyone else had a great time and that everything ran smoothly. I would love to have Richard as my tour leader again. I have already put a deposit down for two more tours with intro travel and I can't wait. Thank you intro travel for and amazing tour. Emily

Emily - 26th Aug 2019

I really enjoyed the 12 day intro, Ben made the experience unforgettable. There’s no better way to see Thailand and to meet the best people on the way. Thanks for everything Ben!

Elidh - 24th Aug 2019

Good food recommendations Sarana bungalows is amazing Ethan was helpful, funny, answered all questions Good activities, lots of choice with them as well as free time

Anonymous - 21st Aug 2019

Can i give our Guide Josh more than 5 Stars? He deserves it It was the best trip of my life and i know without Josh it wouldn't be so perfect. He is the best tourgide i've ever seen. Everyone of the Group is missing him. Josh is gold value. The Trip was so nice, everything was perfect and when it was raining at the Khao Sok Nationalpark, then Josh motivated everyone so we forgot it was raining. I think i will do another Thai Intro Tour it is sooooo AWESOME

Carina - 20th Aug 2019

I have just finished the Thai Intro tour and had the best time of my life!! Josh is an amazing guide and made sure everything was fun and organised perfectly. Really going to miss the people I’ve met and doing so many good and enjoyable activities. Would recommend this trip to anyone, any age! Amazing all round!!

Anonymous - 19th Aug 2019

I have just finished the Thai Intro tour with my boyfriend and have had the best 12 days of my life!! Josh made the tour so enjoyable and fun and ensured everything was organised perfectly. I’m really going to miss him and everyone I have met on the tour. There was a great variety of activities and classes and loved all of them! Amazing!! I would recommend this tour to any one, any age!

Nicole - 19th Aug 2019

Absolutely had the time of my life. Already planning my next 2 holidays with them. The tour guides bring such fantastic energy to the trip that everything feels like an exciting adventure!! I would highly recommend asking for Josh - his knowledge of Thailand, amazing energy and fun loving spirit ensured we had the absolute best holiday ever. He was also brilliant at helping us sort out any problems we had, even after the tour ended. BEST TOUR EVER!! THANK YOU SO MUCH INTRO TOURS!!

Sigrid - 19th Aug 2019

I went to Bali 3 years ago and enjoyed my Holiday but if I went with Intro Travel and Josh was my guide I think I would have loved the Holiday even more. My Thai intro tour with Josh was my best experience ever. He was always happy to answer Questions, he was always around if we needed help. The Guy is always happy. It's like travelling with someone I've known for years. When I travel overseas again I will definitely be using Intro Travel and I'll be recommending these guys to everyone I know. Hope to get Josh next time.

Rhys - 19th Aug 2019

The itinerary was amazing. We saw loads of amazing places and had so many cool experiences. Also Matt was a great group leader- knowledgable and fun!

Matt - 15th Aug 2019

The tour was well organised, Ben and Josh always ensured that we were having a good time! It was a big group however no one was left out and everyone mingled well due to good activities and ice breakers.

Lauren - 6th Aug 2019

The whole tour has been fantastic! From the moment we got to the airport Ben has been great making sure we had everything we needed to make our experience the best it could possibly be.The itinerary has been great and I have had the most amazing experience, nothing has been too much for Ben or any of the other leaders to help with. The whole trip has been the best thing I have ever done!

Lauren - 6th Aug 2019

From start to finish the overall experience was unforgettable for all the right reasons! Ben was there to greet us at the airport and made sure that we had everything we needed at all times throughout the duration of our experience. He has been absolutely hilarious and I cannot stress enough how great his dance moves are;) As well as having a laugh and being a joker Ben has made sure that we are all in good hands and got us to where we need to be safely and as quickly as he could. He has always Made sure that everyone is included in the group and even came to look after us when we were all poorly! Overall the whole tour has been an experience I will never forget and Ben has been absolutely amazing. Definitely had the best tour leader by far!

Olivia - 6th Aug 2019

This was my first intro travel experience and it was amazing. I’ve never really done anything like this before so did not know what to expect. The places we stayed at were amazing and the places we visited were beautiful. If I had booked the trip on my own I probably would not have been able to see all these amazing sites. The group leaders were brilliant. Very informative and made the trip very fun. Benjamin in particular was a bag of laughs to be around and always asked to see if everything was okay. We all became a huge family and this would not of been possible without the best tour leaders. A big shout out to Benjamin Paddock, Brad and Joshua.

Pamela - 5th Aug 2019

I couldn’t have asked for a better tour experience than I have had this trip and that is largely down to our amazing tour leader Jess! We were kept up to date with the itineraries and always knew the plan for the upcoming day. The activities were all really fun and we got to see so much of the island. Would definitely recommend this trip to others. Thank you Jess! Already looking forward to my next tour.

Emily - 2nd Aug 2019

The Thai tour was amazing can, I enjoyed every minute of it. I was lucky enough to have a great group of people and the best tour leader, Jess was like a best friend, cool aunt, and a backing dancer all rolled into one. I would highly recommend doing one of these tours.

Amy - 2nd Aug 2019

Amazing, Jess was honestly incredible, I couldn’t of asked for a better tour guide. Such an incredible 12 days met the most amazing people and have had such a great time exploring and visiting Thailand

Lewis - 2nd Aug 2019

The itinerary was jam packed with things I didn’t think I would be able to do or sort out alone. The organisation was amazing and I have had the best 13 days. Jess was so lovely and enthusiastic the whole time and the experience would not have been the same without her. Thank you Jess and Intro!!

Charity - 2nd Aug 2019

Fantastic guide!! He was always enthusiastic, happy and cheerful!! He has made the Bali tour! Ive had the time of my life. He always made sure that everyone was included in the group!! Extremely knowledgeable about Bali. Is extremely happy to go out of his way to help you and make sure that your not worrying about a thing. I’ve never felt so relaxed. Shak is extremely trustworthy and is such an asset to intro travel. 1000% recommend Shak!

Becca - 2nd Aug 2019

The trip was amazing and the itinerary was perfect. We have experienced a lot but in the same time the program wasn’t too packed so there was time to relax. Laura was excellent. She was so helpful and took care of all in the group. Will definitely recommend this trip
