1 Bangkok
Arrive at any time and welcome to Bangkok - Thailand's bustling capital! This evening, the famous Khao San Road is on the itinerary for your first night out. Explore this buzzing traveller hub with your CEO and check out the lively bars and dance parties that line the street. Grab a Thai beer or tea and connect with your fellow travellers. Don't forget to sample local delicacies, and try a deep fried scorpion if you dare! Stay: Bangkok Centre Hotel
2 Bangkok - Chiang Mai
This tour is off to a colourful start with a day to freely explore Bangkok. Visit Wat Pho, the Grand Palace, National Museum, or Jim Thompson's House. Try a riverboat trip along the Chao Phraya River and through the canals (or klongs) for a different perspective of daily life in this busy city. Tonight, you'll take the overnight train to Chiang Mai. (B)
3 Chiang Mai
Make sure you've got room for more than three meals today, because you're heading to the best street food spots in Chiang Mai. Besides eating, there's lots to do here — like a visit to Doi Suthep temple, taking it easy with a soak in the Sankampang Hot Springs, or checking out a Thai boxing match. Stay: Chiang Mai Gate Hotel
4 Chiang Mai - Ban Mae Jok
It's time for a change of pace. Today, drive from Chiang Mai to Mae Malai village, where you'll set off on a trek through rugged forests to see how diverse this region of hilltribe communities really is. Every village you'll see has its own language, belief system, style of dress, and traditions. It's a few hours to the first village of hilltribe thatch bungalows, but every step is worth it as you get to know the lay of the land. (B/L/D)
5 Ban Mae Jok - Pa Khao Lam
Trek for 2–3 hours before stopping for lunch. Then head to a Karen village to see how traditional blankets and scarves are made. Keep trekking for a few more hours (you've got this!) before stopping in the next village for the night. Along the way, you might get the chance to stop at Mae Tang River to learn to fish using local tools or build a raft using bamboo. (B/L/D)
6 Pa Khao Lam - Chiang Mai
After breakfast, leave the village by bamboo raft and get a closer look at other villages along the way. Meet the van after lunch and head back to Chiang Mai, a foodie's paradise. Try the city's most famous dishes like khao soi (noodles in curry broth) and sai usa (northern Thai sausage) and get ready for your big night out. Venture to the best bar in town and grab a drink on our tab to cheers to a completed trek and life-changing adventures! Stay: Chiang Mai Gate Hotel (B/L)
7 Chiang Mai - Bangkok
Make the most of Chiang Mai with more free time, where you can go shopping in the market, get a Thai massage, or explore any of the many temples. Or, hey, you could always go back for another taste of khao soi curry. Tonight, catch up on sleep during an overnight train and wake up in Bangkok. (B)
8 Bangkok
Get out and explore this fantastic city where there is endless sightseeing to be done. Stay: Bangkok Centre Hotel
9 Bangkok - Surat Thani
Get on first-name basis with Thailand's capital city by bike with an optional bike tour. Today, you can check out Wat Pho and the Grand Palace, go for a street food crawl, relax with a Thai massage, or explore the klongs (canals) by boat before boarding the overnight train. (B)
10 Surat Thani - Khao Sok
See southern Thai hospitality in action with breakfast at G Adventures-supported Khao Thep Pitak Community-Owned Farm & Restaurant, where you can also meet other international visitors. Later on, go to Lake Cheow Lan where you can take in the views while hiking or swimming in the national park. Spend tonight falling asleep to the sweet sounds of the jungle. This area is known for its natural beauty. You know what that means: lots of chances for photos. Stay: Khao Sok Rainforest Resort (B/L)
11 Khao Sok - Ko Pha Ngan
Head across southern Thailand to find yourself in Pha-Ngan. Take the free afternoon to relax beachside before getting ready to hit up one of the world's most famous parties under the light of the moon. The famous Full Moon Party takes place once a month, gathering partygoers from all over the world for one night they won't soon forget. Grab your flip flops and sand pails — it's gonna be a big one. Stay: Goodtime Beach Backpackers (B)
12 Ko Pha Ngan
It's an easy start to the day before getting to know the best bits of Ko Pha-Ngan on a full-day excursion to idyllic Bottle Beach. After a guided trek through the jungle, savour traditional Thai flavours while soaking up the sun and the beach's laid-back vibes. This evening, it's time for a party you won't soon forget. Stay: Goodtime Beach Backpackers (L)
13 Ko Pha Ngan
There's no rush as you recuperate from the festivities. Spend your time exploring the island's waterfalls, swimming in lagoons, going for hikes, or, hey, napping it all off under the sun. Stay: Goodtime Beach Backpackers
14 Ko Pha Ngan
Continue discovering all that Ko Pha Ngan has to offer and make the most of your last day on this pristine island. Relax on the white sand beach, snorkel in the turquoise seawater, or venture into the jungle. Stay: Goodtime Beach Backpackers
15 Ko Pha Ngan
Want to take the hassle out of getting back to Bangkok? Add the “Bangkok Express: Ko Pha-Ngan to Bangkok” to your trip and make your way back to bustling Bangkok with the guidance of a CEO. This nifty post-tour extra includes a ferry to the mainland where you'll board an overnight train to Bangkok arriving in the city early the next morning. Speak to your Global Connection Officer or travel agent to book.
