This trip covers quite a bit of ground, and so there are some longer travelling days on public and private buses, as well as an overnight train. Many of these journeys offer a great chance to interact with the locals, soak up the scenery, and even catch up on a book, but make sure you are prepared for the journeys.
There is an included sea kayaking trip in Krabi, in double kayaks. The water is usually calm through the beautiful mangrove forests. Please let your leader know if you have any concerns about participating.
This itinerary travels through multiple countries, each with their respective customs and National Holidays. Please see the 'Climate and Seasonal Information' section for more details.
There is a village homestay with a family on this trip, in simple multi-share accommodation where conservative dress is recommended. There a few better ways to get to know a country and its people.
1. A Single Supplement to have your own room is available on this trip and excludes nights 2 (overnight sleeper train), and 5 (homestay) where you will be in shared accommodation.
Our Bangkok to Singapore trips score an average of 4.7 out of 5 based on 50 reviews in the last year.
An overall interesting trip with some good activities, but it covers too much ground for 13 days/14 nights. You spend too much time on small, uncomfortable mini-buses, especially on the totally unnecessary full day bus trip to Penang. For half the price I might expect that, but as it is, save your money and save your precious holiday time and book a better-organised trip yourself. I was lucky to get a good group and a great guide, though, so this partly made up for it.
