Bangkok is a majestic city full of history, culture, shopping, and epic nightlife. Also known as “Krung Thep Maka Nakhon” to locals, it is home to some of the oldest buddhist temples on earth, and is Thailand’s largest city. Bangkok is routinely our start and finish location for each tour and often one of our most memorable. The skyline of Bangkok is the backdrop for our visits to Wat Pho temple, nights out on the world famous Khao San Road (Clubbing anyone?), and shoppers looking to stock up on incredibly priced clothing and goods. We make sure we do Bangkok right, as there are so amazing many areas to explore and epic parties to be had!
Situated a few hours west of Bangkok is the town of Kanchanaburi, a true "Thai town" with a small-town feel, but with an ultra dose of fun thrown in the mix. A unique cultural experience, with numerous waterfalls, elephants and, of course, our legendary bamboo raft ride down the River Kwai. The 7 layer waterfall trip at Erawan falls is something that has to be experienced to be believed. Quiet, beautiful, and an all out adventure, this is where memories are made. When we aren’t out exploring – lay poolside at our hotel, grab a fresh locally sourced meal, and join us for a pub crawl through some unique Thai-style bars. This small town often gets rowdy at night!
What do you get when you combine Cottage lake life with Thailand? Khao Sok. A massive national park in the centre of Thailand, it is one the most picturesque locations on earth. Take a longtail boat out on the freshwater lake with your group and spend your nights on a floating raft village. The lake will mesmerize you while you stare in awe at the towering limestone cliffs, jungles and tropical sounds that surrounding you. Cave hikes, amazing meals and swimming in the pristine lake are the highlights of this location. Spend the night dancin’ with a beer in hand with your new mates, or playing the most epic games of beer pong in your life. We promise you it is nothing like you have seen before.
As they say, no roads lead to Railay. Railay is a completely isolated peninsula in the South of Thailand only accessible by boat and is a favourite stop on our tours. With no vehicles, only walkways and jungle paths from one of Thailand’s most flawless beaches on the west side, to the guesthouses and nightlife on the east side, it is consistently a favourite among our travelers. The beachlife in this quaint town is world class. With tons of activities – world class rock climbing, lagoons, cooking classes, kayaking, pool parties and amazing beachlife – Railay does not disappoint, as the people in this town always find an excuse to throw a party… just be sure not miss the sunset at West Beach!
Just off the west coast of Southern Thailand, Phi Phi is an archipelago containing numerous islands. It’s famous for its beauty, spectacular scenery and geography and also known for being a primary location in the movie “The Beach.” The bright blue water in the bay is surrounded by massive limestone slopes and is the most visually stunning spot for some epic photos of you and your new best friends in all of Thailand. Spend the day checking out unique shops, relaxing on the beach and snorkeling. When the sun sets, the night has just begun. There is a vast amount of fire shows, beach parties, muay thai bars and lively crowds of travellers to meet and enjoy paradise with. This is one of our liveliest locations and a favourite for travellers alike!
Next, we island hop next-door to Koh Tao or “Turtle Island”, which is often considered the SCUBA diving capital of Thailand! You’ll have the option to enjoy majestic dives during the day, complimented by low key nights (or as low key as a night out with LBT gets!) spent at bars sitting inches from the crashing waves. Fire spinners light up the night with new and more daring acts every single day! Activities include a day trip to Koh NangYuan, snorkelling, and the biggest pub crawl Thailand! Koh Tao is also home to some of the most picturesque restaurants and bars in Thailand; make sure your camera still has some charge! *On select 16 day tours Khao Sok may be swapped for Koh Tao
