Sweat up a storm from Bangkok to Singapore.
Jungle escapades, city expeditions, swimming, swimming and more swimming. Sound good? Duh! From the bustling streets of Bangkok to the jungle of Khao Sok, sleep on a raft, kick back at Krabi and eat your way through Penang and Singapore. If this trip was a dish it would taste like Singapore’s chilli crab – full of spice, full of flavour and with plenty of time by the sea. Take a 14-day overland adventure to some of South East Asia’s highlights. You’ll be sweating on the regular, but that doesn’t matter ‘cause the scenery will make up for it.
Khao Sok National Park is like stepping into another world. Cruise along the Cheow Lan Lake and spend a night on the banks in a rafthouse.
Take some time out in Ao Nang to recharge and relax. You’ll also get the opportunity to share a meal and chat with a local family in their home!
How about jumping on a long tail boat and heading into the spectacular limestone cove of Railay Beach? It’s only accessible by water, but is definitely worth the trip.
Kuala Lumpur is a fantastic urban centre to dig your teeth into. Master the metro, tackle the Petronas towers and explore the colourful Batu Caves.
Eat on the roadside in Bangkok and Penang and get a taste of everything delicious in one of Singapore’s hawker centres.
Your overnight sleeper train from Bangkok to Surat Thani is an adventure for sure. Be prepared for basic conditions though – bunk beds and shared facilities.
There's one full day of travelling involved (from Ao Nang across the border into Malaysia, then down to Penang). Some travel is on public buses. This is, of course, a great way to mingle with the locals and experience how they travel. And it keeps your carbon footprint down.
Go free and explore! As there are not a heap of inclusions, the resulting free time means flexibility and space for making your own discoveries. This is a great way to travel independently while drawing on the knowledge of local leaders, and keeping your costs down.
