Ben and Harriet's Thailand Adventure- Day 4!

Hi all! It's Harriet this time, blogging from the heart of Thailand! A few days ago we started our volunteering adventure...

Wow what a day we've had today! Earlyish start around 9am. Wandered over to our new favourite local restaurant for some breakfast for me (and coffee for Ben!) I opted for noodles fried with egg and chilli flakes with lime - it was ideal, so much more fun than cornflakes!

We then met our amazing guide for the day - Mr Watts. He was a wonderfully kind 50 year old man who...

Ben and Harriet's Thailand Adventure- Day 3!

Hi, it's Ben again! Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Bangkok on Thursday- so here's a catch up of what we got up to on the next step of our adventure...

After leaving our time in Bangkok behind us (sob...) we started to head awesome Kanchanaburi to meet some of the Thailand Experience group, the lovely lot who came out here on the 8th March. We woke up at 11am after having a very heavy night- we were both feeling the pain but we had a 3 hour journey to kick back and relax so it was all...

Ben and Harriet's Thailand Adventure- Day 2!

Hi guys! I'm currently out in Thailand with Harriet, reporting back to RG base on a day to day basis. We've done so much already! 

After a great nights sleep we woke up in preparation to meet our tour guide, 'On'. He's a great guy, very chatty and spoke excellent English (better than me and Harriet, ha!). We met 'On' in the Sawasadee reception, jumped in a tuk tuk and headed off to our first stop- the Grand Palace.

It cost 500THB to get into the Grand Palace, which is actually included for...

Tuesday Bluesday... It's Time For a Flash Sale!

It's January. We're all a bit down; it's wet and it's grey and we want to get away. So, what should you do next? Book a big trip and escape the doom and gloom, that's what!

We've scoured through our best trips for this time of year to show you where you could be! Ditch the UK and say 'HELLO' to the world!

1) Thailand- I don't think we even need to explain why Thailand is completely awesome. It's scorching hot, exotic, there's cheap everything (cough- drinks, cough) and the Thailand Experience...

Coming Back From A Big Trip

As you may have seen on Twitter, Real Gap travelled around Asia just after Christmas. We had a FANTASTIC time! But what's it like coming back from adventures galore to the daily 9/5 afterwards? Hard!

Stewing on a sunbed on the last day of your summer holiday is the worst thing ever. 'I have to go back to normal life now' we all think as we relax in the last of our 30 degree spree and sup on our tropical cocktail. Times that by ten and that's what it's like coming home from a trip which has...

BANG-kok

We all love an occasion here at Real Gap, and today is one of our personal favourite's- Bonfire Night! To match the fiery nature of the big day, we wanted to show you a city with bags of passion and attitude; a place that could hardly be referred to as the 'shy and retiring' type...

Just as Guy attempted to blow the Houses Parliament up all those years ago, Bangkok does one better as the party capital of Thailand- it’ll blow your mind! As a part of Real Gap’s Thailand experience, get a taster...

Are you ready for Northern India?

 

There are few places left in the world where travellers can truly experience a complete and utter culture shock but India is surely up there with the best of them. Traditional, mystical, unique, exciting: if you’re looking to really get away from the grey UK then set your camera to stun and head for one of the most colourful and vibrant countries on the planet.
 
For starters: If you can tear yourself away from the beaches of Goa then you’ll discover a rich variety of locations, further...
