Trip itinerary

Day 1

We’ll be there to pick you up from either of Bangkok’s airports and then bring you back to our hotel where the trip begins. Settle in, and opt to either relax by the pool or go for a stroll and explore your local surroundings. We’ll all meet in the evening where you’ll be able to get to know the rest of your group, over dinner and drinks on the infamous Khao San Road.

Day 2

Time for some culture! Today we’ll see the city’s impressive temples and the giant reclining Buddha statue by tuk-tuk, and enjoy a cruise along the Chao Phraya River on a traditional longtail boat. The rest of the day is yours to explore, try some local Thai cuisine, or have a go at bartering at some of the street markets in the city - you might bag a bargain! In the evening, we’ll all meet up again for dinner, drinks and more group bonding.

Day 3

In the morning, enjoy a nice and relaxing massage, chill by the pool, or explore more of your surroundings. In the afternoon, we’ll all board a sleeper train south for the night, as we swap the hustle & bustle of the city, for the peace and tranquility of Khao Sok national park. Don’t worry, everyone gets their own berth, and fresh linen on the train - it’s an authentic Thai experience, watching the scenery change as you head south.

Day 4

Arrive into the station in the early morning, and jump into private minivans, as we make our way out to Khao Sok National Park, a TruTravels favourite. Journey out to our floating bungalows on a longtail boat, stopping for a quick dip at a couple of Instagram-worthy locations on the way. Take a kayak out for a paddle, or chill out with a beer in a tube. The backdrop here is something that needs to be seen to be believed. We’ll be staying in floating bungalows on a freshwater lake surrounded by rainforest; it doesn’t get more relaxing.

Day 5

Enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast, after a morning dip in the lake; before we board a ferry & head across to Koh Phangan. When we get there, we head straight to the secluded paradise of Bottle Beach; another TruTravels favourite. It’s quiet, beautiful, only accessible by boat; and to make it better, we get pretty much the whole place to ourselves, staying in beach bungalows overlooking the ocean. Relax here for the rest of the afternoon, enjoy some volleyball, sunbathing on the beach or swimming in the ocean. In the evening we’ll enjoy dinner & some cocktails on the beach, complete with a campfire with our own private fire show. Paradise.

Day 6

Wake up to the sound of waves lapping up on the beach merely metres from your bungalow. The morning is free for you to spend as you like; top up the tan, go kayaking, play volleyball, or just enjoy a lay in. In the afternoon we head to a local gym for some Muay Thai boxing training, Thailand’s national sport. After working up a sweat, we head to our awesome accommodation to freshen up. It’s got a great bar, and atmosphere; the ideal location to spend the the last nights of the trip.

Day 7

Head out on a cruise around Koh Phangan, taking in the scenery and enjoying some snorkelling at the best spots around the island. It gets better though, we throw in a free bucket & lunch; and awesome day out. In the evening, head back to our accommodation for a dip, dinner and drinks.

Day 8

Enjoy a day party at one of the biggest and craziest waterslides in Southeast Asia! We will meet in our hostel that night for a UV painting session to get us ready for the Full Moon Experience. We will take you to the best pre-drinking spots before hitting the Full Moon party in TruTravels style! Those of you hardcore enough to make it to sunrise (the best bit); may even get to join us at the after-party which starts at 6am! No rest for the wicked.

Day 9

Depending on what time you stumble in from the party, you will probably need some of today to sleep & recover, which is why the only planned activity today is a nice relaxing massage and possibly a film at a local bar. Who doesn’t love spending some time relaxing in a hammock by the beach?

Day 10

Today you will have to check out by midday. If you have not booked any onward travel then we are on hand to help plan your next step. We can help you stay longer in Phangan, transport back to Bangkok or almost anywhere else in Asia. The world is your oyster!

Why should I book now?

Covid-19 threw us a curve ball and pretty much halted all travel. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12 months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free.

As a Global Traveller you’ll get exclusive access to gWorld, our personalised app where you can keep all of your important documents and trip details in one spot and gain insider access to everything Global.

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together!

But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
