Immerse yourself in Thailand's world famous beach culture
Clear blue waters, white sands, swaying palm trees and a bungalow on the beach… Thailand has the ideal ingredients for a holiday in paradise. Come and explore Thailand's beautiful southern islands, relax in the sun and try some of the special Thai food this region is famous for. These are just some of the pleasures that await you on this relaxing tour of Thailand's pristine beaches.
Discover the best beaches and islands of Thailand’s east coast – from popular Ko Samui to laid-back Ko Tao – for a true slice of paradise
Cruise to Ko Pitak for a taste of real island life. Enjoy an overnight homestay, feast on fresh seafood and interact with local fishermen
Two in-depth snorkelling trips, one in Chumphon and one in Ko Tao, give you plenty of time to explore underwater worlds brimming with coral and colourful tropical fish
Travel as the locals do on an overnight sleeper train – the best way to travel long distances, meet locals and maximise time at destinations
The overnight sleeper train from Bangkok to Chumphon takes 9 hours and is a real Intrepid adventure. Be prepared for basic conditions though – bunk beds and shared facilities.
This trip includes lots of free time for flexibility and space for making your own discoveries. There are lots of recommended optional activities if you wish, or just time to soak up the sun and kick back on the countless beautiful beaches.
Get your sea legs ready because this trip involves lots of travel by boat. Apart from being the only way to see these islands, you can’t beat cruising between dramatic limestone outcrops as you island hop.
This itinerary is valid for departures from 01 January 2019 to 31 December 2019. View the itinerary for departures between 01 January 2018 - 31 December 2018

I was looking for a slower-paced tour with a lighter itinerary in an exotic location with idyllic beaches, and this trip fits the bill. While there is a lot of free time, there is plenty to do and experience. The two snorkeling excursions were great, and our leader, Itim, was a lot of fun. The homestay was really fun, and we were all pleasantly surprised that they had high-speed WiFi. A few notes: The cost estimates for food and drinks are too low, so plan on spending more especially in Koh Tao and Koh Samui where the prices are inflated. It rained nearly every day in August, so bring a light raincoat and flip flops.

Intrepid is a great tour company which lets you immerse yourself in the country you are going to, so many opportunities to go off the beaten track & see a different side of the world you’re in. There’s plenty of free time to do your own thing, excellent!
