Thailand beaches was amazing and such a lovely way to see the coast and also inland. I have never seen water so blue, with such amazing fish. The included activities were great and a good amount of free time. Definitely adventurous but relaxing as well.

One of the best times I’ve ever had traveling. The destinations and scenery at times felt like a dream. I wanted beaches, islands and sun and I really got to experience it to the fullest as a first time traveller to Thailand.

It’s my first time travelling solo and booking with intrepid took care of everything. Our tour guide Rong was amazing and catered to our every need. He kept us well informed about everything we had planned. Thailand is a magical place and the people are the nicest I’ve ever met. I have never felt so safe and relaxed. I definitely recommend everyone should go to this beautiful country.

This tour was truly a life changing experience for me and one I’ll never forget! Everyone on my tour was great and my leader Damrong was fantastic! My only suggestion itinerary wise is there be an extra day in Krabi for plenty of rest and free time with all the packed-in activities.

If you are searching for adventure, active holiday and some beaches this is definitely for you. We had so much fun in this trip and our tour leader Rabbit made it even better. She was amazing. She was very approachable, nice, fun and professional.
