TOUR 8B – A Meander in south Thailand: Small Group holiday Tour package
15 Days. From AUD $2,790


This 15-day small group holiday tour package is the second half of our Thai Meander All itinerary.

While all Baktrax tours will show you the real cultures of the destinations you visit, the Meander trips take this to another level again.

If who want to see what South Thailand is all about while travelling slowly enough to make it an even more relaxing holiday then this is the tour for you. Fewer destinations in more depth.

This south Thailand Meander would be even more suitable for families also with lots of beach time after a real local experience.


The South Meander takes in the better-known destinations of Bangkok & Hua Hin as well as the three less visited provinces of Samut Songkram, Phetchaburi, (Cha-Am) and  Prachuap Khiri Khan.


(3 star hotels x 13 nights;  2 star hotels x 2 nights).

Have a full month to  Meander in the north also.

Day 1:

Tonight our Thailand small group holiday tour package will stay in; BANGKOK - Our South Thailand small group tour officially starts when you check into your Bangkok accommodation. A welcoming dinner will be had in the evening. If you arrive early enough your free time could be spent visiting the enormous Chatuchak weekend market and/or, Wat Phra Kaew & the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, MBK or Siam shopping centres or take a public ferry ride with the locals on the Chao Phraya express to some local shops in Nonthaburi.

A few of the dozens of other options may be Vimanmek Teak Mansion, Chinatown, Wat Traimit, Jim Thompsons House, Silom or Sukhumvit road shops.

OR? Maybe just lay back and have a traditional Thai Massage. A month in the capital wouldn't allow you enough time to see it all. D.

Day 2:

Tonight our small group Thailand tour will stay in; SAMUT SONGKRAM -  Before we relax seaside we will first travel on two almost secret little rail lines by two very local trains, bisected by a river ferry crossing, to the geographically smallest province in the Kingdom, Samut Songkram.

Also known as Mae Klong by the locals. It would be most unlikely to see any other non-locals on this train. A fascinating look at local life both on the train and along the tracks. 

This is a not to be missed almost unknown highlight of Thailand A  real local experience which also sees our last stop in the middle of the unique railway station market. Clear the tracks! Train arriving! B.

Day 3:

SAMUT SONGKRAM - A free day to wander around this REAL Thai provincial capital, it seems once again that the Baktrax philosophy of small is best rings true because the local population must surely be in the running for the friendliest people in this Kingdom of friendly people. Wat Phet Samut Worawihan will give you a look at a local temple.

In the evening you will get the chance to have ten courses or more dinner for a few dollars as you meander around the evening street vendors market grazing on the numerous and cheap delights on offer. B.

Day 4:

Tonight our group travel tour Thailand tour will stay in; CHA-AM - Our small group tour now heads for the beach today via local buses. Cha-Am is a very popular weekend seaside destination for Bangkokians and other locals but as we are there mid week and there are fewer crowds, this beautiful coastal destination is even more appealing. CHILL! B.

Day 5:

CHA-AM - This lesser known seaside resort has a great atmosphere whether laying on the long beach during the day or eating seafood with a beer at night. The local town part of Cha-Am is a short motorbike taxi ride away from the beach where you will be able to visit the once weekly night market with lots of goodies on offer to tempt and delight. B.

Day 6:

CHA-AM - Repeat day 5. Eat, drink and chill out. B.

Day 7:

Tonight our cheap small group Thailand tour will stay in; PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN - By bus or train today will see our small group tour in Prachuap Khiri Khan. Prachuap is far less famous than its neighbour Hua Hin but also has some great beaches and seafood just minus the hordes of tourists.

The stunning limestone karsts jutting out of the ocean make the perfect backdrop for an evening coldie. Think mini Halong bay. B.

Day 8:

PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN - Firstly let us paint the breakfast picture; Buffet by the pool overlooking the spectacular limestone karst seaside scenery. Then a  totally free day to lay on a beach or by the pool, or perhaps explore this peaceful little seaside town. For the active, Khao Chong Krajok, (mirror tunnel mountain), is a tough walk to the temple on the top of Wat Thammikikarem. Some monkeys may entertain you along the way before more great town and ocean views. B.

Day 9:

Tonight our Thailand group vacation tour will stay in: HUA HIN - A very short bus ride will see our Thailand group tour in the far more famous seaside destination of Hua Hin. For those who want a more touristy destination, Hua Hin fits the bill perfectly.

The town itself makes for a pleasant stroll and the beach is only minutes away also. In the evening one of the best night markets for seafood in all Thailand sets up on a daily basis. B.

Day 10:

HUA HIN -  If you must be in a tourist destination then we guess we best do what tourists do. Lay on a beach, eat, drink and be merry.  Hua Hin won't disappoint in this respect. B.

Day 11:

HUA HIN - More of the same seaside in tropical climes.  Will it be Lobster or prawns tonight? B.

Day 12:

HUA HIN - Yet another day to laze, shop, or meander around town or along the beach. More seafood or a pizza for a change? B.

Day 13:

Tonight our cheap Thailand group your package will stay in; BANGKOK - By bus or train Our small group tour will return to where we began,  Bangkok, with the rest of the day free. B.


Day 14:

BANGKOK - Last minute shopping, sightseeing or a day trip are among the myriad of options for your last day in the city of Angels known as Krungthep to the locals. A farewell dinner will be had in the evening. B. D.


Day 15:

Our cheap  Meander in South Thailand small group holiday tour package is officially over when we check out of our Bangkok accommodation. An airport transfer is included also. B.
