This trip is for the 18 to 35 year olds

From the bustling streets of Bangkok to the pristine waters of Koh Samui, this 15-day trip lets you soak up all the natural beauty and city life highlights of South East Asian gems – Thailand, Maylasia and Singapore. You’ll cycle through rural villages to waterfalls, laze on the palm-fringed beaches of islands and eat your way through Penang. Stay with the locals at a homestay in Phrom Lok and tuck into some delicious home-cooked Thai food. Visit temples, take street food tours and enjoy loads of free time to choose your own adventures. If this trip was a dish, it would taste like Singapore’s chilli crab – full of spice and flavour, with plenty of time by the sea.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Tick some South East Asian highlights off your bucket list with this epic trip through the paradise of Koh Samui Island, the serenity of the Cameron Highlands and the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
  • Settle into local life with a homestay in Phrom Lok. Cycle around the countryside, cool off in a waterfall and tuck into some delicious home-cooked meals.
  • Take some time out in Ao Nang to recharge, relax and soak up the beachside bliss with loads of free time to go sea kayaking, rock climbing or cocktail hunting.
  • Eat on the roadside in Bangkok, Penang and Singapore, with included and optional street food experiences and plenty of free time (not to mention your trusty local leader) to find all the best food stalls.
  • Marvel at the reclining Buddha at Wat Pho in Bangkok, and then see the other 1000 images of Buddha throughout the gorgeous complex.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, EcoThailand Foundation. Donations help educate school children on important environmental issues like climate change, nature appreciation, conservation and sustainability.

Is this trip right for you?
  • 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 on this trip is on public transport. 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.

Our tour leader Jinny was the best, she made the trip a truly unforgettable and life changing two weeks. For my first tour alone at 18, loved every second and now have the urge to travel more!

The Real Bangkok to Singapore trip was highly enjoyable and a 10/10 experience from start to finish with the great views in southern Thailand to the beauty of Singapore. I would highly recommend this trip.

The trip was amazing. My personal highlight was the Khao Sok National Park with the Raft houses, kayaking tours and the hike to the top of a waterfall. Our group was really active so there wasn't that much free time, which I really liked. Our leader Jinny was so much fun to hang out with. She always joined us when we went out in the evenings and everybody made friends with her right from the start. Thank you for the great trip Jinny!

Loved my trip to South East Asia with intrepid. Got to experience both city life and nature which was a good mix. Both tour leaders were engaging and enthusiastic about the countries we visited. I also felt incredibly safe the whole time which was something very important to me as a solo female traveller
