Round The World Thailand & Australia (2020): Trip Highlights

The Best Parts Of Thailand & Australia

This is a classic trip to some of the most popular backpacking locations. Stopping off in Thailand en-route is the perfect way to start, with rich culture and history, you will meet loads of new friends as we explore bustling Bangkok and cruise the River before travelling south to Koh Phangan via Khao Sok National Park. Our awesome Group Leaders will be with you to help you stay safe and get the most out of your week and are all experienced backpackers so can give you loads of info and advice on onward travel if you need it. Consider it being like welcomes into a family, even after you finish travelling with us if you choose to travel elsewhere independently it’s good to know you have a team to back up and support you in Thailand. That’s exactly what you get on this trip.

Your next stop will be Australia, where we have an amazing first week planned for you, with job assistance if you want it. Which is perfect to help you work and travel through Australia. Plus after that, we include a flexible hop on hop off East coast pass so you can spend as little or as long as you like travelling Australia from Sydney to Cairns doing some amazing activities en route.

This is a cut-down version of our round the world Australasia programme so if you want to add on places like New Zealand and Fiji you may want to check that one out too, or if you have other idea let us know! We can custom built trips too.
