Arrive in Bangkok, the city of dreams, the land of smiles, the start of the best goddamn 9 days of your life. We’re ready and waiting at the airport to pick you up. So grab your bags and we’re on our way! We take you to our first hotel where you can chillax, no really that’s it’s name. Chillax resort and it’s a beauty! The afternoon is free to spend as you please, it’s been a long flight so connect to the wifi and order any and every cocktail that contains a funky umbrella or colourful straw. Start your boujee adventure as you mean to go on right? We stay close to the famous Khao San road so if you fancy getting out of the hotel, check it out, grab a massage or hit up the markets!

How was your first night? Of course it was out of this world. You’re in Bangkok, there really is no place like it!

In the afternoon we take private transport to the Grand Palace. Dazzling, spectacular, dripping in elegance and gold the Grand Palace is the most famous landmark in all of Bangkok so it’s only right we visit. We learn about Thai history and culture and take a look around. We head back and get suited and booted, well grab a shower and put on some fresh clothes, as tonight we’re heading to one of Bangkok’s most famous sky towers.The views are insane, the cocktails delicious and the company?

Yeah, we’ve taken you to paradise. Freshen up before hitting the beach. We’re sailing into the sunset, Disney style. Well, not quite we’re kayaking but the experience is just as magical. Go pro’s at the ready, as we kayak into the hidden gem of Phra Nang Cave. A tru-ly authentic Thai experience, known to bring good fortune and fertility from the legend that is Phra Nang sea princess goddess herself. is. As the sun goes down we paddle back to the beach where cocktails are calling our name. Hey, we’ve worked up a sweat. It’s only right we have a daiquiri or 5.

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. Climb the limestone cliffs and sea the stunning sea from up high! In the evening we hit up the best beach bars for a well needed and deserved drink. Boujee cocktails only please.

Hey he’s gorgeous and we’re still swooning..We love Leo, both the babe and the Thai beer. But Phi Phi is so much more than that. Golden sandy beaches, pristine blue waters. It’s heaven. 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!

An El of a good time!
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. It’s our last night so it’s only right we make it one to remember... We can already taste the sex on the beach..cocktails.

Words can not describe how...

10-Dec-2023

Words can not describe how amazing this trip was! Especially our tour guide Kevin, he is a wonderful person and made the trip even better than I could have hoped for! The best part was i decided to share this experience with my 73 year old dad, and Kevin and the rest of the group were wounderful with him, nothing was ever a problem and if there was they would go out of their way to make sure he shared the same experience as the rest of us. Especially very step stair, my heart would be in my mouth but by day two they all had a system where they would all grab an arm each and someone would stand in front just in case he slipped, it was so heartwarming to see 🥺 One morning Kevin even went out of his way to take dad on a walking tour of Hanoi but instead of walking, dad was carried on a push bike so that he didn’t miss out and then he later came to collect us and took us out on the same tour on foot. He made me and my dad feel like we weren’t a burden or anything! He was utterly amazing and I’m so thankful he was our tour guide. Thank you Kevin for being such an amazing person and going above and beyond for us. I recommend this tour to anyone! And don’t be afraid to take your mum or dad because I promise you’ll be in safe hands with Kevin 🥰 lots of love Betty Bee and Mr Tony 🖤💛

I absolutely loved my TruTravels!

27-May-2022

I absolutely loved my trutravels experiences! I did the Colombia and Costa Rica trip and had the best time! Everything was very well planned out, the leaders were amazing, and I met so many cool people. I’ll definitely be doing more trips in the future!

Charlotte  

I would definitely recommend Tru travels

05-Jul-2022

I would definitely recommend Tru travels, I’ve had an amazing and unforgettable trip. Our tour guides Nonnie and Gun were incredible - organised and informative but most importantly enormous fun. I’ve made friends for life and I’m heartbroken to be leaving. I’m very glad I decided to do this tour.

I am on my final...

29-Sep-2023

I am on my final day of the 10 day Bali Experience and I honestly can’t put into words how much I’ve loved my trip. As my first time solo travelling I was a bit nervous, but this was the perfect trip. Everything about it has been amazing and the activities have exceeded my expectations. One of the best things about the trip was our tour guide - Ibing we love you soooo much. Ibing has been so kind, caring and helpful and has always gone above and beyond to make sure everyone in the group feels safe and is having a great time. I am going to miss Ibing and my whole TruTravels family so much.

I did the Vietnam Experience...

20-Jan-2024

I did the Vietnam Experience with Lucas and it was an amazing tour! He was on time with all the info we needed, super organized and great company to hang out with! Any culture or history questions were answered and we learned lots of things about this amazing country! I really liked how respectful and mindful he was of others; He knew how to deal with the more sensitive people in the group and was super nice to everyone! My highlights of the trip where : Hoi An and Ninh Binh 😊 The activities were so much fun and the views incredible!! Also, despite the rainy weather he made sure we had a great time! I would definitely recommend him to my friends! Thanks Lucas for a great trip!!

Angelina  

I would 100% recommend!

21-Jul-2022

Just finished the 21 day northern Thailand and beaches tour. The tour guides on both parts (Scotty, Whisky, Arthur) were amazing: fun, warm, organised, informative and much more. I really enjoyed the action packed days on the Northern tour including the bike riding, Elephant Sanctuary, waterfalls and water park. I also liked that the south was more chill with beach days, swimming, kayaking and evening parties. I would 100% recommend!

This was the second tour...

21-Sep-2023

This was the second tour I have done with TruTravels. I have done the Bali experience and the Vietnam tour which were both amazing. The Vietnam tour has been absolutely incredible! The trip wouldn’t have been the same without our tour guide Lucas. He was super friendly, funny and confident from the get go. I loved that on the first night he gave us all a bracelet which was a really nice touch to start the tour with. Lucas was always helpful and knowledgeable. If we ever had any questions (whether it was to do with transport, culture history etc.), he always answered well. This meant that the tour was very culturally enriching and I felt as though I got to learn a lot of really interesting information about Vietnam. Lucas was also absolutely hilarious and would joke about with all of us which made it feel as though we were all a big family. My favourite parts were Ha long Bay, Ninh Binh and Hoi An. The views were stunning and the tour activities were so fun. On the last night, Lucas had handwritten a postcard which was personalised to each of us. He then played the guitar and sang us a song, which made some of us cry. We were all very emotional to be leaving and Lucas/ the rest of the group has left a mark. The tour will have a special place in my heart, thanks to Lucas. Overall, Lucas was not just our tour guide, he was our friend. I’ve booked another true travels tour because I loved it so much. I would definitely recommend!

20-Jun-2023

Just completed the Bali Bliss Experience and it was brilliant. It was my second time travelling with TruTravels having been Mexico last year with them. On the Bali Bliss tour we had Monk as our tour leader and we was awesome. Always making sure everyone was having a good time, he was a lot of fun and brought so much energy to the tour. Highly recommend!!

Really great experience here in...

15-Aug-2023

Really great experience here in Bali. TruTravels really took care of me and helped me when I broke my phone and got an upper respiratory infection. Monk, the guide, is really knowledgeable and loves sharing the fun. You can freely participate with the activities or do something on your own. Monk will help you out. Definitely recommend!!!

TruTravels went above end beyond!

07-Jul-2022

Had an incredible first experience in Thailand thanks to Nonnie and Gun, our incredible tour guides. They were both professional, friendly, so generous and always smiling themselves or making the group laugh! We were blessed with upgrades in many of the places we visited, for example extra meals thrown in, bigger Ferry, cheaper drinks, premium hotel rooms, and more! It was such a luxury to have everything planned out for us so no thinking was involved, perfect when not having been in Thailand before. At the same time, our tour guides were also really flexible so the group could decide when / where we wanted to go if we had specific interests. Highly recommend TruTravels, can’t flaw them at all and am proud to wear our bonus free TruTravels t-shirt around town ;)
