From the hustle and bustle of Bangkok to the calm relaxing jungle of Khao Sok and the pristine crystal clear waters of Koh Phi Phi. This trip is short but incredibly sweet! Sit back and relax on the beautiful beaches of Railay & Koh Phi Phi in between boat trips, snorkeling & fire shows. If you don’t have time for our longer Thailand trips then this Thailand island hopper will definitely curb your wanderlust!

What’s Included

Accommodation? Check! Activities? Yep. Guides? Of course! Meals? We threw in a bunch to keep you going!

We’ve got you covered 😉

Itinerary

Bangkok: Day 1-3

One of the crew will meet you when you arrive in Thailand and get you checked in. Get to know the rest of the group and immerse yourself in the many experiences Bangkok has to over. It doesn’t matter what your travel style...Bangkok has some thing for everyone...Tuk Tuk’s, golden temples, floating markets and delicious flavours. Let us show you our favourite spots by day and by night!

Khao Sok National Park: Day 4

Travelling Thailand wouldn’t be the same without visiting our favourite hidden little spot in the jungle. Join us as we stay overnight in floating bungalows in the middle of the Khao Sok National Park...this place never fails to impress! Aswell as kicking back and relaxing there will be plenty of time for tubing, kayaking and if you're lucky we may even find some cheeky little monkeys during sunset 🐒

Krabi: Days 5-6

Who doesn’t love a little bit of sun on those cheeks and some relaxing beach time! Well here you have it...Krabi is home to the picture perfect Railay beach and it doesn’t disappoint. When you think of Thailand you think of traditional longtail boats and beautiful beaches...well this is exactly that spot. If you're not much of a beach bum do not worry...we have a cheeky little climb to the famous Tiger Cave Temple to get that blood pumping. Did we forget to mention the nightlife? Krabi is full of shops, restaurants and if you're lucky we might even visit a ladyboy bar!

Koh Phi Phi: Days 7-9

If you love the island life you will absolutely fall in love with Koh Phi Phi. Cobbled streets, white sandy beaches surrounded by crystal clear blue water. Phi Phi really is a backpackers dream as it’s full of young like minded travellers. By day we’re island hopping in our own very own private speed boat visiting some hidden secrets spots...if you're lucky we may even see the odd monkey or two on the beach! The nightlife in Phi Phi is pretty wild with bucket bars, fire shows and beach parties!

Trip Preparation

Do I need a visa?

For most travellers, Thailand is a very easy country to visit with a simple ‘Visa on Arrival’ process. This includes a long list of different countries* including; UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and most of Europe. The ‘Visa on Arrival’ allows you 30 days when entering Thailand by air. If you don’t qualify for the ‘Visa on Arrival’ you can apply for a visa here.

* It’s important you do check your own visa eligibility as we are not visa experts and the information above is general in nature. We’ve also put together an ‘Unofficial’ Visa Guide for Asia & Australia.

What vaccinations do I need?

There are no specific vaccinations that you need for any of the destinations we travel but there are vaccinations that your doctor may recommend having as a precaution. That's why we advise just paying a visit to your local GP if you’re unsure. They will know what jabs you’ve previously had and which you need to update. All destinations and areas we travel are low risk but best to be on the safe side. Click here for a useful resource provided by the UK government.

Is travel insurance compulsory?

It’s super important that you get yourself covered for your trip with us. It’s not expensive and certainly does give you and your loved ones peace of mind. We actually require all customers to show proof of cover at the beginning of the tour. We’ll need to see your name, area of cover and dates that the insurance is valid.

Will I receive a packing list?

You sure will, 6-8 weeks before the trip we’ll be sending an ‘Arrival Guide’ with a bunch of information to help you prepare for the trip. This will include safety and cultural tips plus a packing list.

Should I bring a suitcase or backpack?

Most people do prefer travelling with a backpack and it’s generally easier when moving around but it’s not uncommon for some travellers to bring a suitcase. We suggest bringing something you are comfortable with carrying and lugging around.

Is there a limit to my luggage weight?

We suggest not going crazy with the packing and keeping it simple. Try and bring loose/floaty clothing that isn’t too thick or heavy. No need to bring heels or walking boots. We limit the luggage to 20kg per person. Best to leave the kitchen sink behind 🤣

Are there laundry services on tour?

Throughout the trip there will be a few opportunities to do laundry but we always suggest bringing enough underwear and essentials for the full trip. Your Group Leader will let you know the best time to do laundry but this usually doesn’t happen until 4 or 5 days into the tour.

Do I need to bring a towel?

At all the hotels we stay there will be towels provided to be used for showering and freshening up. We suggest buying a microfibre towel as they are small and dry fast for using on the beach and swimming.

How much spending money do I need?

You don’t need much at all considering almost all of the big ticket items are included! We suggest no less than £300 to be safe. Some people spend less and some more, it really depends on your spending habits. If you love shopping or are prone to a few more big nights than the average person then you could spend more. You can spend far less if you are tight with your budget but this kind of average works well for most.

What's the best way to manage my money?

We always recommend when travelling to a new country that you have some form of local currency with you. Having some money exchanged already will give you something to spend at the airport when you land.

We would recommend getting a Wise card as they have great exchange rates and it stops you from getting stung by your bank for withdrawing overseas. Wise cards don’t just make things easier but they make it safer as you can use your main bank account as a backup.

Will there be a Whatsapp group?

There sure will! Some people like it to be a surprise and meet their new travel family when they arrive… others want to get chatting straight away. We’ve got our own private Facebook group, Feel Free Family, for you to meet other travellers. Add yourself into the group and make a post asking who else has booked or thinking about booking the same date as you. We’ll be setting up the private Whatsapp group 2 weeks before the tour and we’ll invite you in via a link in the ‘Welcome Email’.

Your Arrival

When should I arrive on Day 1?

We suggest aiming to arrive as early as possible on the 1st day, this isn’t essential but we’ll head out for dinner and drinks around 5pm. If you get in during the morning/early afternoon you’ll have time to relax, have a shower and go for a wander. Don’t stress if you can’t find a flight that works, the main activities start on the morning of day 2.

Can I arrive a day or 2 early?

You sure can! We actually recommend it to those people doing longer journeys as you’ll no doubt be tired and appreciate that time to recharge before we get stuck into it.

Will I get an airport pickup?

Anyone staying at our accommodation that arrives on Day 1 or decides to book extra nights with us will be picked up by our trusted drivers at the airport. They’ll be stood waiting at the airport with a Feel Free Travel sign so you’ll have no issues finding them 👍🏼

Which airport should I choose in Bangkok?

Most of the big international airlines will fly in through BKK (Suvarnabhumi International). If you’re on a low cost airline or 1 of the Asian airlines you may come in via DMK (Don Mueang International). Both options are good and we’ll pick you up from either… no worries!

How do I know where to meet at the airport?

We’ll send everyone up to date arrival instructions 2 weeks before the trip with exactly where to meet the driver. Once you get picked up we’ll get you back to the hotel and checked in. If your flight is running late don’t worry, we’ll be tracking it on Google and will wait for you to arrive.

What’s the plan on Day 1?

We will pick you up from the airport and get you all settled in. If you arrive earlier in the day then we’ll give you some ideas of things to do so that you can explore the local area with others that have already arrived. In the evening it’s time to meet your new travel family and we’ll take you out to one of our favourite spots for dinner and drinks.

Is there Wifi on tour?

Almost all of our accommodations on all of our trips have free WIFI so you can contact your friends and family back at home whilst you’re travelling. There are certain places we visit that don't but we will always give you a heads up well in advance so that you can prepare and let your loved ones know at home you may be unreachable.

After the Trip

What time does the tour finish?

All our tours finish on the morning of the final day, this will give you plenty of time to get back to the airport ready for that flight home or onto your next destination

What happens after my tour?

It really depends from group to group… sometimes we’ll have a whole bunch of people hanging out once the tour has finished, travelling for days, weeks or even months together. But others you’ll have many people going separate ways. As the trip unfolds you’ll soon learn about each other's travel plans and share ideas for what adventures lie ahead. The hardest part is saying your goodbyes and giving your last big hugs to the people who are leaving straight after the trip finishes.

Can I get help with return airport transfers?

When you’re at the final stages of booking your trip, you’ll have the option to select the ‘Return Airport Transfer’ option. Sometimes it’s as simple as just a taxi ride to the airport where as others it can be a ferry and a domestic flight to get you back to where we started.

When should I book my return flight?

It’s a good idea to book your return flight late afternoon or even later that evening on the final day. This will give you plenty of time to get back to the airport ready for that connecting flight. Departing earlier than this can cause issues and is not advised.

Can I stay extra days?

You sure can, we suggest waiting until you arrive and chat with your Group Leader. You might have a bunch of ideas now but after chatting with the rest of the group and getting a feel for things you might change your mind. This is why we don’t offer the option to extend your trip before you arrive.

I’m doing more than 1 trip, how do I book my connecting flight?

We’ve actually written a whole blog on this as it’s pretty important you arrive as early as possible. Click here to read more.

Do I get help with onward travel?

It would be a real shame to lock up all our travel tips. Some people are just on a short break from work and others are on a slightly longer backpacking adventure. Either way your Group Leader will help you plan anything from a return airport transfer to giving you a bunch of awesome ideas for the rest of your time in South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I travel solo/come alone?

Absolutely! Our trips are built for solo travellers and believe us… sharing new experiences with a group of new friends is one of the best things you can do. A large majority of the people that travel with us are 1st time travellers doing it alone so don’t worry, you’ll never be alone with us.

What’s the average age of people on these trips?

On average we attract travellers between the ages of 22-32, but we also get younger travellers straight out of school as well as working professionals in their mid to late 30’s

How big are the group sizes?

We keep our group sizes small with an average of 12-16 people per group so that everyone gets to know each other and experience things at a pace that is enjoyable for all.

What’s included in the price?

We include most of the big ticket items like accommodation, activities, local experiences, secret stops, local guides, a western group leader and a bunch of meals. We also include an airport pickup on arrival!

What’s not included?

You’ll just need to sort your international flights, travel insurance, visas and spending money 🙌🏼

Do we stay in hostels or hotels?

The accommodation on our trips is something we do better than anyone else and our trips definitely wouldn’t be the same without the awesome places we stay. We’ve handpicked these places to give you the perfect balance of comfort, security and convenience. We really do love where we stay and so do all our happy travellers 😍

We’ll always do our very best to make sure you have delicious meals along the way no matter what your dietary requirements. You’ll be asked during the booking process and again during ‘Check in’, be sure to share as much information as possible to help us prepare for your arrival.

Can I combine more than 1 trip together?

It’s very common for our travellers not to just come and do 1 trip but combine them together. After all, the flight tickets are not cheap! Most of our trips are programmed in a way that you can finish 1 trip and start the other on the same day. If you need help with the planning just let us know!

How do I book?

Booking your trip couldn’t be easier, find a trip that takes your fancy, pick a date, reserve your spot with a deposit and get that flight booked…

We always recommend reserving your spot before booking your flight. When our trips are full… unfortunately they are FULL 😬 Checkout our ’How it Works’ page for more information on booking your trip!!

Is This For You?

Are you ready to experience a new culture, race around Bangkok in a Tuk Tuk and go island hopping in the south? If so then this trip is definitely for you!
