Western Islands and Jungle: Backpacking Thailand Itinerary

Fully immerse yourself in the Thailand islands on this backpacking adventure!

From the planning to the execution, let us maximize your Thailand vacation!

The Western Islands and Jungle tour takes you to some of the world’s best beaches and tropical oases; from Railay, to Koh Phi Phi and finishing up in Ao Nang, this is sure to be one adventure you will never forget.

We will spend eleven days backpacking across stunning destinations. We will embark on caving trips, sea kayaking, and viewpoint hikes in order to Thailand from all angles. Once the sun goes down, indulge in the nightlife that the islands have to offer and party until dawn with travellers from all over the world. 

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. 

Additional Information: Our Western Islands and Jungle tour is set to travel alongside our Treasures Of Thailand tour. With this being said, on occasions some departures will be running independently. To check if your departure is travelling alongside another, please feel free to contact us via the website chat.

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.
