Intrepid Travel

Discover Thailand with Intrepid Travel

Thailand is an idyllic paradise that delivers in spades. The water around Krabi and Ko Tao really is that deep, cool shade of blue. Phi Phi’s limestone karsts really do look like some alien world. And the food? Let’s just say your local Pad Thai has nothing on Chiang Mai’s street stalls or the floating markets of Amphawa. Intrepid operate 47 different Thailand itineraries, from family trips, to cycling, sailing, food and cultural experiences. Whether you want to travel in style or on a shoestring, 7 days to 21, we have the adventure for you.
