Trekking, diving and ethical elephant-ing in ‘The Land of Smiles’ Thailand

If you want to tick several tantalising adventures off your Bucket List in one go, you’ll certainly do it on your tour of Thailand with the Bucket List Company.

You’ll get to know some incredibly majestic elephants responsibly and ethically, you’ll explore Bangkok’s kaleidoscope of colours, sights and smells, AND you’ll trek through dense rainforest and bunk in with the friendliest of Thai tribespeople.

But before you hit “go” though, there’s more.

On this trip you’ll visit an absolute beauty of an island where you can dive in the most fantastically fishy, crystal-clear waters (or discover the art of “beach life” if you’d prefer).

You’ll visit jungles, mountains and stunning lakes and you’ll experience true Thai island life in seriously tropical surroundings.

White sands and blue seas your thing? Fan of fun and genuine adventure? Like the idea of an elephant snuffling its trunk in your face? Of course you do.

Take a look at the itinerary below.
