But so god damn worth it when you get to the top! Insta worthy shots fo sure. In the afternoon you have the option to take part in a 3 course traditional Thai cooking class, yep we’ve got the pro’s teaching you to be a pro. Or if you don’t fancy yourself as a world renowned chef, or just prefer to devour 7/11 toasties for breakfast, lunch and dinner then spend the day rock climbing.

We catch the boat across and once arriving the afternoon is yours to do as you please. Catch some zzz’s on the beach, grab a acai bowl smoothie or relax in our fancy ass hotel. There’s no better place to watch the sun go down than the famous Phi Phi viewpoint, so we head there for sunset. Grab your TruFam in close, the skies are golden orange and candy floss purple. Pure perfection. Phi Phi’s nightlife is POPPIN. So if you fancy partying your flip flops off, or watching a wild fire show on the beach, well we’re with you every step on the way.

Trust us, there’s nowhere else you’d rather be in the world. We hit the gems that are Monkey Island, (no really there’s monkey’s there) Viking Cave and Pileh lagoon. All as different and tru-ly spectacular as the next. Like we said we don’t do average, we do bucket list ticking, mind blowingly awesome. Jump in!

Today is our last full day together and what a trip it’s been! So we head to the local elephant sanctuary to visit Thailand’s national animal. We get up close with these friendly giants and learn how they are rehabilitated and cared for day to day. Animal welfare is extremely close to our hearts at Tru and the elephants here are free to roam and are not here for the entertainment of tourists. We educate ourselves and use this opportunity to distribute funds to programmes that do good. Hey it’s a El of a morning! ;) We arrive back early afternoon and have a few hours to get ready for our final night! Go big or go home! We head to one of Phuket’s most famous spots for sunset in Promthep Cape and have a delicious dinner on the beach and see where the night takes us.

I had the most amazing time on this…

Sep 2023

I had the most amazing time on this tour, visiting some stunning locations across Thailand and getting involved in so many fun activities including kayaking, rock climbing & hiking !! My guides on this tour were Ming and Arthur, both were absolutely amazing from the start of the tour right to end! Throughout the trip, both Arthur and Ming really looked after our group, from reminding us about sun cream, to being a DJ in the mini van to making us laugh everyday !! I couldn’t be more grateful to have Arthur and Ming as my guides on this trip, as well they were so helpful and knowledgeable about Thailand with recommendations and answering any questions I had !! All in All the best tour and experience, with a big thanks to Arthur and Ming !!! Katie - Sep 2023

An incredible experience with a group of amazing girls and the sweetest pair of guides: Sea and Peanut :) On our 9 days trips they have managed to keep everything in line and match our expectations in the fastest possible way.

I had the greatest time on the 9 day Awaywithpurpose Thailand trip, especially because of our phenomenal tour guides Sea & Peanut!

Phenomenal Tour Guides - Sea & Peanut

Oct 2023

Sea and Peanut have been phenomenal guides, across a tour of Thailand for 8 nights. The tour was well planned and executed, with amazing trips and experiences, along with fantastic hotels. However, our guides Sea & Peanut, truly made this trip exceptional. Each day was seamless owing to their professionalism and efforts, dealing with every query and request, ensuring our safety and health at all times, and most importantly that we had the most fantastic time. Thank you Sea & Peanut, you have made this tour incredible. I will be eternally grateful for this experience with you both, and you could not have done any more for us, this truly was the trip of a lifetime. TC - Oct 2023
