Southern Thailand Trip: 20 Days

from $0USD
CHECK DATES Flight options available

A Dose of Paradise

You'll begin your trip with one epic night in Bangkok where you'll get a great introduction to the infamous city that is always sure to create some of the best travel stories.

You'll then keep the good times going on a night train south to enjoy Koh Phangan, Koh Phi Phi, Railay, and Khao Sok National Park.

The beaches are legendary, the parties are equally as legendary, and the Thai people you will get to meet and stay with are like family to us. They will no doubt blow you away with their welcoming nature and constant laughter!

Just came back from the 20-day Thailand trip. This trip was nothing short of amazing. I enjoyed relaxing on the beautiful beaches of Thailand and also hiking to see breathtaking views. Rock climbing on cliffs in Railay got me out of my comfort zone ! In addition, I got to bathe an elephant and meet new awesome friends. This was my second trip with Free & Easy and I can't wait to jump in a new experience again.
