Hop from Phucket to Ko Phi Phi to Krabi and back, an 8-day tour of Thailand’s most stunning beaches and coastal caves.
What do you picture when you think of Thailand? Most imagine the pristine beaches, prolonged sunsets, fresh coconuts and jagged mountains—the stuff of postcards and movies.
Well, on this trip you will actually experience all those things and more. You’ll fly into Phucket, where you can visit limestone karsts and coastal caves, with time for an optional Thai cooking class. Then head out to Ko Phi Phi, Thailand’s famed island, where you’ll dip into the ocean, dine on papaya salads and fall asleep to the sounds of tropical birds chirping outside. Finally, pay a visit to the town of Ao Nang in Krabi for an epic climb up to the Tiger Cave temple to experience Thailand at its most spiritual.
On this tour, you’ll be hanging out with like-minded young travellers who want to make the most of their Thailand experience. With plenty of departure dates during Thailand’s most welcoming months, this is an accessible, lively way to get introduced to a perennial backpacker favourite.

A few guidelines on trip descriptions: All descriptions/itineraries are sourced from trip/tour operator, and Outpost assumes no liability. Prices are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated, are often “starting from” the one listed, and don’t necessarily reflect final/total cost (that is, taxes, in-country or extra fees might be added). And, prices indicated here do NOT include airfare, unless it says so. Date changes are always possible and sometimes even inescapable. So, always get in touch with an operator directly; sometimes they’ll let you know about a sale or special so a price may actually be less than listed here.
