Elephants, jungles, beaches, giant gold Buddhas and Thai-riffic food? What’s not to love about Thailand?!
Seriously, Thailand is like heaven on earth. First, there are the beaches – you might recognise them from such Pinterest boards as ‘Best Beaches on Earth’, ‘Beach Please’, and ‘I want to go to there’.
Then there’s the food – Tom Yam Goong, Coconut Curry, sticky rice, mango everything and Pad Thai for days.
Then, there’s everything else – cocktails on the beach in Ao Nang, epic temples in Sukhothai, and an incredible elephant hospital in Chiang Mai that’ll give you a serious case of the warm and fuzzies.
Check it out on a small group adventure with a bunch of 18-29 year olds, an awesome local leader and Geckos!
What people say
These trips are for young adventurous and laid back people. If you are looking for 5 star accommodations, book a different kind of trip. My trip was awesome because we really got to be immersed in the Thai culture, our guide was amazing, and we had a blast.

Super South Thailand, December 2016
I loved this trip because I was able to hang out with people that had the same interests as me. It was so different from an average family vacation because you're with a group of younger people, so you're able to do much more. Everyone on my group was friendly even though I was traveling alone. I had a wonderful time and would recommend taking a trip with Geckos.

Northern Thailand at a Glance, December 2016
Geckos is a great way to learn about the culture of the place you are visiting, the guides have so much knowledge and go aboive and beyond when it comes to recommending restaurants and activities.
