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.
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.

It's been an excellent trip which combined bustling cities, small villages and beautiful landscapes. We all got along very well throughout the trip and our very knowledgeable and attentive leader made sure we would always get the most out of every place we visited.

Brilliant trip with good combination of bustling cities and quiet countryside with a chance to meet the local people and enjoy the culinary delights of four countries. (I feel Intrepid could get free publicity from offering trip members either a "Intrepid sun hat or T-shirt" with a logo something like "I've been on a Intrepid trip"). I also strongly recommend "All4Diving" in Sanur who were very professional.
