Itinerary

 
1

Day 1

Arrival in Bangkok

We will either pick you from the airport or meet you at the guesthouse and introduce you to the crew. You’ll have the rest of the day to get settled before we head out in the evening with the rest of the group for a welcome meal and a few drinks on Khao San Road.

2

Day 2

Sightseeing & Shopping

Today you get to experience either Chutuchack Weekend Market (JJ’s) or MBK mall (Massive market or shopping mall). At both, you can buy almost anything in the known universe and usually for a pretty decent price. JJ is also home to one of our favourite bars in Bangkok, where you can enjoy a delicious cocktail and awesome DJ’s! In the evening we can hit up Khao San again or take a cruise along the Chao Phraya River to town and take in the magnificent night time views of the riverbank with lit up temples, old and new Thai architecture.

Day 3

Onwards to Rayong – Boat Trips, Waterfalls & Turtles

Leaving Bangkok in the morning we take a private minibus to the lovely beach-side town of Rayong. Today you can either relax by the pool and sample some of the famous local cuisines or jump on board the Undiscovered Thailand boat for a day of sea, sun and fun. We’ll visit an awesome local waterfall, do some snorkelling and even visit a turtle sanctuary (seasonal) or try a spot of flyboarding (optional).

Day 4

Koh Chang bound

Today we hit the coastal road again over to the beautiful Island of Koh Chang. Whilst the 3rd biggest Thai Island, Koh Chang is not as well know among tourists as others like Samui or Phuket so it’s somewhat of an idyll. We stay in some cool little beach bungalows in the backpacker area of Lonely Beach which has great stretches of white sand, crystal clear water, cool bars and restaurants. Kayak, explore, fish, sunbathe or party… do whatever you like. We have two days to chill and ready ourselves for the next leg of our epic road trip… Cambodia!

6-10

Day 6-10

Sihanoukvile & Koh Rong

We start the Cambodia leg of the tour in Sihanoukville where there is no shortage of beaches, islands and parties. Whilst down in Sihanoukville we’ll stay near the main beach for two nights and hit the famous beach parties at Dolphin Bar (50c beers!) and other good time beach shacks. We take part in a pirate ship booze cruise around the islands on day 7, then hop over to the tropical island paradise of Koh Rong on day 8 for the next two nights (What could Koh wrong?).

10-12

Day 10-12

Kampot

On day 10 we take a short ride to the great little town of Kampot. Staying at an awesome backpackers right on the river we’ll spend the next two days chilling, rafting, tubing, hiking, cycling and maybe even rock climbing and abseiling in caves… YES!

12-14

Day 12-14

Phnom Penh

Arriving in the capital by private minibus, we’ll get checked into one of the coolest backpackers in the city with the best rooftop bar! We’ll do some exploring or a bit of heritage sight-seeing at Wat Phnom, the founding temple of Phnom Penh and a sunset boat cruize (with beer) along the Mekong River. Whilst in the city, tradition dictates that we take a tour of the historical and eye-opening site of the Khmer Killing Fields and S21. Two historical landmarks which shine some light on Cambodia’s chilling and not too distant past.

While here we also eat at some nice spots including Dine in the Dark (A feature restaurant where you dine in complete darkness) and Friends Restaurant which serves Khmer tapas and is a training restaurant run by a charity for underprivileged youth so they can gain employment and escape poverty. Also… We’ll sample some of the cities nightlife and party till the early hours.

14-16

Day 14-16

Siem Reap

Depending on the season we’ll either take a minivan or boat from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap, home of the magnificent Angkor Wat temple ruins (where they filmed Tomb Raider & Tekken). We’ll take a sunrise bike ride through the temple complex exploring the awe-inspiring ancient ruins which happen to be a UNESCO World Heritage site. If you’re ballin’ you can even take a balloon ride and get a bird’s-eye view.

Whilst here you can also visit a local NGO’s volunteer project (where we can arrange for you to stay longer and volunteer after the tour if you wish), or take time to explore the town and its surroundings. We stay in one of the towns most sociable and fun backpackers so expect plenty of parties and good times! On the last night, we’ll take you out for a nice meal on us then to pub street for a pub-crawl to end the trip on a high. As always we can help you get to wherever you want to go next. Whether you’re doing one of our Top Ups or joining another TruTour for the next leg of your journey – we’ll make sure you’re in the right place at the right time for the fun to roll on!
