    Planning a once-in-a-lifetime kinda getaway? Filled with happening party spots, breathtaking beaches, lush islands, a rich culture - Thailand’s gotta be on your bucket list. Whether you’re planning a short trip on a budget or going all out for your best friend’s bachelorette, this place will elevate your wayfarer ways. 

    What To Do

    From getting your beach vibes on at Koh Samui to scuba diving at Koh Tao to exploring the city of Bangkok on foot - there’s no dearth of activities to keep your energy up & going. A super fun way to cover the happening spots in the country is by backpacking all over. There are temples, palaces, amazing markets, shops, lush green mountains, mesmerizing beaches, delish Thai cuisine & of course, one of the craziest nightlife in the world. To make things easier, check out Contiki’s Thai Island Hopper East trip because they are covering it all at an amazing price.

    Where To Stay

    A floatel, of course! Book your stay at The River Kwai Jungle Rafts & get ready to disconnect from technology. Float down the Thai rivers while getting a massage or jump off your balcony right into the river. If you’re one for the luxe, then book your stay at Entara Grand Beach Resort at Krabi. Whether you’re at Long Island, Phi Phi or in Bangkok, the options are endless. And you always have Contiki to help you out with your end-to-end plans.

    Where To Eat & Drink

    Love Thai? For starters, order up a serving of Pad Thai for breakfast (yep, they do that!). We hope that your spice tolerance levels are high because they usually overload all their dishes with heat. Satiate your palette by heading over to their local restaurants & get a taste of their authentic cuisine. If you’re on a binge run, 7/11 will save the day with their ham and cheese toasties (they are a boon!). For a dreamy brunch, you must try out the menu at Roast, a restaurant in The Helix Quartier of Bangkok. Even though they do not serve Thai cuisine, get ready to overload your tummy with their sumptuous spread.

    What’s Around The City

    Party hubs, yoga getaways, scuba hotspots, built up resorts and laid-back beaches - they’ve got an island for each type for traveler. Get a tan at Phi Phi islands. Trek all the way to the top of Koh Nang Yuan. Party your heart out at Koh Phangan. Kick back and relax at any an exotic bungalow or homestay at one the many islands the country has to offer.
