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.

Northern Thailand at a Glance, May 2017
Do it. If you're hesitant (if it's super far away, or if you've never traveled along before, or if you're just nervous), just do it. I've made so many memories and new friends that will last a lifetime thanks to Geckos.

Super South Thailand, May 2017
Truly the adventure of a lifetime, I wouldn't hesitate to book another trip with Gecko Adventures. The group size was perfect, we only had nine people all in their 20s and full of adventure. Our guide GeeGee was very friendly and helpful, she was always there to answer questions and provide us with interesting information or local history.
