Much more than Bangkok and beaches, spicy food and sunburnt farangs (the Thai term for Western tourists, which translates to ‘guava’), modern Thailand is boundlessly captivating and diverse. You’ll not want to miss out on the irresistible beaches and hotels for which the country is rightly renowned. But with insider knowledge and careful planning, you can also venture an inch off the map to discover why Thailand keeps even seasoned explorers hooked for life.
Despite the fact that Thailand is a huge country, the majority of visitors continue to flock to the same handful of places; it’s as if all the visitors to France decided to stick to Paris and St Tropez! We are passionate about combatting the problems of over-tourism, not only because we want our trips to impact positively on the local economy, culture and environment, but because we believe that you’ll have a more enriching and enjoyable experience in Thailand if you do something a little bit different.
Our specialists love to show travellers a side to Thailand they didn’t know existed: swathes of lush green mountains, rural communities and unparalleled natural beauty. At the same time, they have extensively travelled or even lived in the big cities, know the hotels inside out and can tell you where to find jaw-dropping secret beaches.
With the help of our local partners, we have curated privately-guided experiences that are well thought out and unique to us. Whether it’s a different perspective on the main sights in Bangkok or a home-cooked meal with a local family in the rural north, our aim is to facilitate genuine local interactions. All our guides and in-country partners are committed to ensuring that you have a unique and brilliant time.
