This is it, the day you’ve been counting down till… ARRIVAL DAY! Welcome to the big, culture 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 road area. Today is your day to settle in, go get a massage, have a wander through the markets and grab 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 to sus out the night life.
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 road. We are heading to Mae Klong today! 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 check in and gear up for some dirty work in the mangroves. And tonight, you’re cooking! It’s time for our Totally Traditional Thai cooking experience. Yummmmooo!
An early good morning to you Monday, what a weekend. Today we are going to visit another famous lot of markets and its one that floats - yup, all the stores are in little boats! After some shopping here, we’ll get you down south, to Ranong. It’s a long day in our private mini van, so sit back, relax and watch the world go by. Upon arrival into town, we’ll get checked in and settle for an easy night. Beer anyone?
Today is day one of the Moken experience. First up we will meet Kru Fi (teacher Fi) for a little run down on the next few days, then we will jumping in a boat and visiting our first island, Koh Lao, to see how this marginalised community of the Moken people live. It’s really something else and the Chasin crew are super privileged to be able to visit such a place.
By the afternoon we’ll have you checked into our digs on Koh Payam and sipping cocktails while the sunsets. Tonight, we’ll officially welcome you this amazing island with a feast by the ocean!
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 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. Of a night time we have some activities up our sleeves… a night of trivia, a chill sesh and a BBQ feast.
After all your hard work, we are giving you a free day to do whatever you please. Beach wandering, snorkeling, exploring the island or just hanging out… it’s up to you and we’ll help you get it sorted.
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 ready for a good feed (we’ll get it for you!) and a wander around our new home.
Island Hopping day
It’s your last full day and we have some options for you. Maybe you want to hit another island (Phi Phi perhaps?!) and get some snorkelling in? Or take a trip out to the Emerald pools, a temple in a cave and sit in a hot spring, amongst some of the luscious, tropical vegetation? Or you want to get in some last minute shopping and a massage. Totally up to you to today and we’ll be there to help you organise it all.
Tonight we will have one final hoorah and all go out together.
Final good-byes are going to be said… don’t cry, we can do a reunion tour next year ;). We will help you arrange onward travel to wherever you’re heading.
