Our 40 day Treasures of Thailand tour is designed to fully maximize your extended Thailand travel experience; whether you are looking to soak up the sun on Thailand’s stunning islands, trek through the jungle, play with elephants, rock climb, snorkel, dive, shop, learn Thai cooking, or simply find the party... there is something for everyone, especially for the person who wants to do it all! 

Including stops in Chiang Mai and Pai, this tour takes you from Bangkok through the eastern Thai islands, throughout the mainland and over to the western Thai islands. Take the Treasures of Thailand tour if you are looking for an action-packed backpacking adventure that truly introduces you to the wonders of Thailand. 

Please Note: this tour will begin in Bangkok on the day listed as the start date. Please take into account that depending on where you are flying from, your flight will depart either 1 or 2 days before this date.

*Due to higher than normal accommodation prices over the holiday season there will be a $100 surcharge for the Thailand tours running through the end of December.

Maya Bay Update: The Thailand Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has announced that Maya Bay will be closed indefinitely until the natural resources have recovered from the years of tourism. 

Important Information Regarding Flights:

We currently offer to include round-trip airfare departing from any location; if your location isn’t listed, select ‘other' during your sign-up according to your region, and include your requested departure city in the comments box. We offer to book flights on your behalf to provide a smooth trip for you, but you are more than welcome to book your own flights, in which case you would select a ‘land only’ tour.

The difference in price between the land only cost of the tour, and your package price for the round-trip flights + tour option, is your flight allowance. If the cost of your flight is more than the flight allowance, then that difference will be communicated to you prior to booking the flights, which will then be added to your invoice and booked only after receiving your confirmation. During the months of July, August, December and throughout the Chinese New Year, flights tend to increase in cost substantially, so there will most likely be an additional flight fee to fly during those times; however, please keep in mind that flights fees can occur at any time of the year because the aviation industry tends to have erratic pricing.

If booking a tour within 1 month of departure, and are requesting flights, please contact us ahead of time as we may not be able to book flights on your behalf in that timeframe, but will be able to offer you an alternative solution.

Please note that due to time zones and travel time, flight departures are normally 1 day prior to the trip start date.

Seasonal Pricing is in effect for select tours, please see our FAQ for more information.
