The beauty of real Thailand awaits on this 16-day tour.
From the hustle and bustle of Bangkok to an elephant rescue centre then an island that has no cars and has only just got electricity!
Be blown away by the secrets of the south all while giving back to local communities and helping protect our planet.
We will meet a small community of sea gypsies, clean and hang out on palm-tree-lined beaches, and soak in natural hot tubs surrounded by lush jungle.

Welcome to the Land of Smiles!! And what a spot to start your adventure, none other than the big, culturally rich, bustling city of Bangkok! One of the Chasin crew will be waiting for you at the airport and will whisk you away through the crowds and into the craziness of the Khao San area.
Today is your day to settle in - grab a massage, wander through the markets and pick up a pair of elephant pants to strut your stuff in or grab a Chang and watch the world go by.
If you’re up for it tonight, we will catch up for a bite to eat and venture out together.
Rise and shine Chasin crew, we have a big day ahead of us! Cure any dustiness from last night with some tucker for breakky and get ready to hit the city. We’ll be jumping in boats, checking out markets, visiting temples and learning all about the culture of Thailand.
Tonight it’s our official ‘Welcome to the Chasin Thailand Tour’ dinner, so kick back and get ready to eat!
We are heading to Hua Hin today, via Mae Klong. This great little Thai city is known for its markets, the most famous being the train market - picture a market on a train track, that has to give way to four trains a day! Umbrellas, shade shelters and baskets getting pushed back, rolled in and folded away for a few minutes while it passes, then it all comes back together… mind blowing!
We will take you to one of our favourite restaurants for lunch, then it’s time to hit road and head to the beach
This will be one of the highlights of the trip. You can see these gentle giants happily living in a sanctuary that’s all about helping them live an amazing life.
We have had a busy start to the trip, so today we’re going to take it a bit easier. Yoga to start the day, a walk through an amazing mangrove forest and an afternoon of beach cleaning and sunset chilling. To finish off day 5 there is a traditional Thai massage on the cards.
One day with animals certainly isn’t enough, so we are going to take a safari into a national park and see what we can find. Keep your eyes peeled for big, grey, four legged mammals.
Get your headphones out and put on some comfy clothes, today is one of our longer days to travel south and get to Koh Phayam. We’ll be in a bus, boat and a tuk tuk.
The next three days will be where you roll up your sleeves, get hot and dirty and experience something like no other. We will be helping the community of Moken people, Burmese and local Thais to better their lively-hood and help create a sustainable future for them. And of course some beach cleaning and a marine conservation workshop.
The work may change from time to time, but with all things Chasin, we'll be making small steps that lead to big differences.
A local style lunch will be included each day.
Good Bye Koh Payam, see you next time! Today is another travel day, further south to the province of Krabi. You want to keep your eyes open for today's trip, loads of little towns, high, jagged limestone rocks and lush vegetation.
After the day of travel you’ll be tired and we know the spots for a good feed, so dinner is on us.
It’s time for a day on the water for some snorkeling and island hopping!! The islands in the south of Thailand are really something else. Slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen and slap on a hat, lets hit the water. Oh, did I mention we’ll be teeing up with a citizen science program to check out their coral nursery? Well, we are!
Being with nature has so many benefits! So today we are going to immerse ourselves into more natural environments and learn about the conservation efforts being done.
Who is up for soak in a natural hot tub?
Me, me, me!!
Say no more, lets go and enjoy!
One last day together and what better way to spend it then ocean side. Railey beach is a short boat ride away from our accommodation and the perfect spot to sit and soak up some rays or explore the island. To finish off the tour, a hoo-roo dinner is on Chasin.
If you are off on your own way, good bye for now. If you want to stay in Thailand a bit longer, read on.
D a y 1 6 - 2 2 - Island Time, Ao Nang
Explore beaches, wander through markets, check out some cool sites on the island and relax!
This is a time for you to do as little or as much as you wish. Koh Samui is the perfect spot for that.
We have your accommodation, the transfer to the hotel and a one day island trip included.
After a 6 night stay on the island you will make your own way back to Bangkok/ wherever you are off to next. There is an airport to fly from or you can catch a ferry and a bus.
Which ever you choose, Chasin will be there to help you if you need!
