Elephant at Elephant Hills Luxury Tented Camp in Khao Sok National Park, Thailand

Our favourite Thailand routes to inspire your trip - or contact us to start from scratch

Thailand is no stranger to mass tourism, but overdevelopment and backpacker madness is only one chapter in a much bigger story.

Our sample routes aim to tell that story, taking you beyond the usual tourist sites to learn to cook in a local home in Sukhothai, climb craggy limestone cliffs on Railay Beach, or visit an elephant sanctuary deep in the rainforest at Khao Sok National Park. Whatever your style of travel, there’s so much more to Thailand than beach parties and big resorts.

The routes you see here are some of our personal favourites, but everyone’s different. Treat them as a starting point, then tell us what you love to do and we’ll design a trip that’s tailored to you.
