Day 1: Bangkok

Arrive in bustling Bangkok, transfer to your guesthouse in Backpacker central AKA Khao San Road and head out for a few casual cold ones with your group.

Day 2: Bangkok Sightseeing

Explore Bangkok by boat to see its decadent temples, Reclining Buddha and Golden Palace. Come nightfall, party in the neon shrine of Khao San Road.

Day 3: Surin

Take the scenic 6-7 hour train journey to Surin, skirting the edges of Khao Yai National Park and the Isaan Plateau.

Day 4 - 7: Volunteering Project

Time to volunteer! Teachers, you'll teach four hours of classes each morning in local schools, assisting children with their conversational English. Afternoons are free for adventure and lesson planning. Those staying at elephant village will help the keepers complete their daily duties; walking and bathing elephants, planting and harvesting crops, as well as kayaking on the local river and helping to make basic Thai recipes. In the afternoon on Day 7 you'll return to your volunteer house in Surin , stopping at a local market to feast on real rural delicacies - fried insects anyone?

Day 8 - 9: Bangkok to Koh Phangan

Bid farewell to Surin and return to Bangkok by coach where you can tick off any activities you missed first time round. Then stock up on coach snacks because it's overnight to Koh Phangan.

Day 10 - 13: Koh Phangan

Three days of beachy bliss. Sunbathe on golden sands, swim in crystal clear seas, or leave the comforts of your beachside accommodation to seek out an infamous Full Moon Party!

Day 14 - 15: Koh Phangan to Bangkok

Back to Bangkok for a final evening of friendly folks, flavoursome food carts, and neon-lit dancefloors. Then check out on your final day for your flight home.
