There’s no two ways about it: we fit a whole lot of Thailand into this seven-day, hostel-based extravaganza. Start things off by hopping in a tuk-tuk for an insider’s view of Bangkok, stopping for a tasty street food crawl in Chinatown. Next up, visit Kanchanaburi and its infamous World War II sites along the River Kwai. Then, grab a bicycle and explore ancient ruins before catching an overnight train to the north. Get a true taste of local life in Chiang Mai by cruising around in a songthaew, visiting temples to give morning alms to local monks, and sharpening your kitchen skills with an optional Thai cooking class.
