Thai Experience (25 days)

Days 1 - 4: Bangkok. Kick your amazing adventure off in buzzing Bangkok. Take a long-tail boat tour, visit temples and palaces, cycle the streets, and go out out on neon-soaked Khao San Road. There’s lots of time for you to get stuck into the city at your own pace as well – take a tuk-tuk, get a Thai massage and grab some insanely good street-food!

Days 5 - 7: Chiang Mai and Elephant Project. Arrive in Chiang Mai by sleeper train. You’ll do a Thai cooking class and visit Chiang Mai’s famous night bazaar, before heading to the elephant conservation project where you’ll spend an amazing 2 days feeding and bathing the elephants and living with the villagers. Please note, as an ethical project elephant riding is not allowed.

Days 8 - 9: Hill Trekking in Northern Thailand. Get off the beaten track and hike through the wilderness, past waterfalls, rivers and spectacular views. Drift down the river on a traditional bamboo raft and spend the night in a secret jungle retreat.

Days 10 - 11: Krabi and Railay Beach. It’s all about the beach life for the next couple of days on gorgeous Railay. Cool off in the azure sea, play some volleyball or just catch some rays on the whitest of white sand.

Days 12 - 14: Koh Phi Phi. Pretty Phi Phi is the perfect mix of chilled out by day and party by night. Hike to a viewpoint, bliss out on paradise beaches, take a snorkelling trip to the surrounding islands, watch the fire dancers on the beach, and dance under the stars every night.

Days 15 - 17: Koh Samui and Ang Thong National Marine Park. You’ll be swimming and sunning yourself for the next few days, as well as enjoying some off-the-hook nightlife. We’ll spend an epic day sailing round the emerald islands of Ang Thong, stopping to kayak and snorkel in the crystal clear sea.

Days 18 – 20: Koh Pha Ngan. Nowhere parties harder than Pha Ngan. In between going wild to the biggest and best sound systems, enjoy the hotel pool, the lovely beach and a temple steam session for a Thai style detox.

Days 21-24: Koh Tao. Stay near lively Sairee Beach in a hotel with a pool. This tropical paradise is home for the next few days so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the beach, the epic parties and the famous diving.

Day 25: Farewell to Thailand. Day 25 is our last on the Thai leg of the trip, so once you've checked out of your accommodation, you'll need to make your own way back to Bangkok, then to Denpasar International Airport (DPS) to arrive in time for the first day of your Bali itinerary.

Bali Beaches (8 days)

Days 1 - 2: Kuta. Kick off your Bali adventure with a couple of days in lively Kuta. Check out spectacular Uluwatu and Tanah Lot Temples, take a surf lesson, have lunch in the Monkey Forest and sample some of the famously crazy Kuta nightlife.

Days 4 - 5: Ubud. Visit Ubud primary school and prepare to have your heart stolen by the friendly kids, head to Tegenungan Waterfall for a swim, visit the plantation where the world’s most expensive coffee is made and wander through the terraced rice fields.

Days 6 - 8: The Gili Islands & bye-bye Bali. Leave civilisation behind and sail to the Gilis where you’ll take a bicycle tour, go on an island hopping boat trip, snorkel with turtles and dance all night with the sand between your toes. Then on day 8, make your way back to Denpasar Airport to catch your onward flight to Sydney International Airport (SYD).

Paid Work in Australia

Days 1 - 4: Sydney. Spend the next few days exploring spectacular Sydney and getting the lowdown on working and travelling Down Under. You’ll see all the most iconic sights on a jet boat tour round the harbour, soak up the sun and surf on Bondi and tuck into a proper Aussie barbie as well as getting lots of time with our local jobs team who’ll get you all set up and ready for work.

Days 5 - 7: Port Stephens. Stop off at a hidden beach on the way to Port Stephens for a surf lesson. We’ll be packing in the fun for the next 2 days with a beach barbecue, sandboarding on some of the biggest sand dunes in Aus and a dolphin cruise on a private boat.

Days 7 - 8: Sydney. Get the best advice from the jobs team on work, accommodation and onward travel. We’ll also get you signed up to our jobs board. In the evenings, it’s work hat off, party hat on as you head into the bright lights of the city, including dinner at Australia's highest revolving restaurant!

Day 9: Onwards and upwards. Get ready to start your new Aussie life. Check out of the hostel and move on to your house share or other accommodation. Good luck!

Thailand

You’ll get to stay in a variety of different types of accommodation in Thailand, the majority of which will be based on two to four people of the same sex sharing a room. Let us know if you’re travelling with a friend or partner, so we can make sure you end up together. All accommodation has Wi-fi access, western-style bathroom facilities, and air-conditioned rooms, with the exception of your accommodation at the elephant park and on the hill trekking experience, which will be in basic, but comfortable shared huts. Two of the guesthouses have pools, which you’ll have full access to in your down time.

Most meals aren’t included on this trip, other than meals at the elephant village and during the hill trek, which offers you a fantastic opportunity to sample a range of Thailand’s delicious food. Coconut milk and spices feature heavily in the national cuisine, as do rice, noodles and seafood. Thai street-food is also some of the best in Asia.

Bali

You will be staying in hotels and boutique hostels for this leg of the trip. All accommodation will be in twin rooms (sharing with another group member of the same sex) with the exception of Ubud which will be quad-share. All of the accommodations are clean and comfortable and each one has air-conditioning and a swimming pool.

Breakfast will be provided each morning. Lunch and dinner will be at your own expense. Indonesia is foodie heaven, with satays, curries and fried rice dishes. Eating is often ‘family style’ with a selection of dishes and steamed rice in the centre of the table for everybody to share.

Australia

Your accommodation for the first eight nights in Sydney comes in the form of a lively backpacker’s hostel in the heart of the city. You’ll be sharing a mixed dorm with between seven and nine others, and have access to shared areas, Wifi, and your own locker. You’ll also get to spend one night in a unique Aussie bush bungalow in Port Stephens. After your first eight nights you can extend your stay at the hostel, or take up a house share with other travellers. Our in-country team will be able to help you with this and any other arrangements.

The majority of your food and drink isn't included while you're in Australia, but on days three and five you'll enjoy beach barbecues, with lunch included on day six. On day eight you’ll be treated to a delicious group dinner at Australia’s highest revolving restaurant. You’ll have a lot of fun eating out here - Australians really appreciate good food and this is reflected in the range and quality of options. They do breakfast and brunch particularly well and there is a thriving cafe culture, especially in the cities.

Please note: it’s important to let us know if you have any dietary requirements when you book.

Thailand

You’ll need to arrange your flight to Thailand to arrive at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) on your programme start date between the hours of 6am and 10pm. We recommend that you arrive before 3pm if possible, so that you are able to join the first night out with the group. You’ll be met at the airport and taken to your accommodation.

Your tour in Thailand will finish on Koh Tao on your end date. Transfers back to Bangkok are not included in your trip but are easy to arrange and your local guide will be able to help you with this.

There are a few options. The most common are a combination of a ferry and coach or a ferry and flight. Please allow plenty of time for your travel back to Bangkok in order to catch your onward flight to Bali. We recommend arranging an extra night's accommodation in Thailand following the end of the Thailand leg of your trip, to allow time for travel and unexpected delays.

Bali

You will need to arrange flights to arrive at Denpasar International Airport (DPS) (also known as Ngurah Rai International Airport), for the first day of your trip. You will be greeted at the airport and taken to your accommodation.

Please arrange your return flight to depart after 8pm on the last day of your trip, or stay in Bali for an extra night, to allow time to travel Denpasar, which your tour guide can help you arrange. For both options, we can help you find accommodation if you’d like to stay in Bali an extra night.

Australia

From Denpasar, you'll need to fly to Sydney International Airport (SYD) to arrive in time for the first day of your programme start date. You’ll be met at the airport and taken you to your accommodation in the centre of Sydney.

You’ll need to obtain a Working Holiday Visa to work in Australia, please ensure you have applied for the correct visa before travelling.

Please note: There may be a few days between your programmes. You will need to arrange your own accommodation for this. You will also need to organise your own flights between the three destinations. Our flights team can provide some competitively priced options.
