Description of Singapore to Bangkok small group tour

From the steamy streets of Singapore to busy Bangkok, this adventure takes you through Malaysia and into Thailand. Travel to national parks and isolated islands, finding ancient tradition alongside contemporary development, in one unforgettable journey.

Scale Kuala Lumpur’s tallest tower before escaping to the fresh air and rolling hills of the Cameron Highlands. Feast on Penang’s famous curry and explore the cultural hotspot of Georgetown, with entry to the excellent Penang State Museum and Art Gallery included. Hike, climb and tube your way around the rainforests of Khao Sok National Park in Thailand and tuck into delicious Singaporean, Malaysian and Thai food along the way, visiting buzzing night markets to discover the freshest and most exciting local cuisine.

This trip offers the best of both worlds – expert local guidance balanced with flexibility and freedom – and offers great value for money. Enjoy orientation walks in each city to help get your bearings, then free time to make your own discoveries. Travel for 13 days using private minibus, public bus, taxi and van, with nights in guesthouses, hotels, a sleeper train and even a raft house on the Cheow Lan Lake.

Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is one of our Basix trips, designed specifically for budget travellers who still want the security of group travel without lots of added inclusions. These trips don't have many included activities and meals are rarely included in the price, giving you the opportunity to search out local restaurants and sample regional specialities to your heart's content. The amount of free time in these itineraries means that the Basix trips often appeal to younger travellers looking to explore independently and tailor the trip to your own interests. You often won't spend too many days in any one place and you'll pack lots of different locations into your holiday.

As you might expect, accommodation on a Basix trip will be fairly basic! We'll stay in 1-2 star accommodation, often including homestays and there may be nights where the group stays somewhere multi-share / in a dormitory-style. Most accommodation however will be twin share; with solo travellers automatically roomed with a fellow group member of the same sex, this means that there are no single supplements on Basix trips.

On camping trips you will be expected to help out around the camp; putting up and taking down your own tent, helping with meals and other camp duties. We often find the nights where we are without a few creature comforts are those that are most amazing; wild bush camping in Serengeti anyone?! We'll use local transport where ever possible which is a great way of seeing the country and meeting locals as we travel.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

Singapore to Bangkok small group tour

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.


As a global tour operator, we take our role in sustainable tourism very seriously and practice responsible travel wherever we visit. We recognise the impact that tourism has on local communities and the environment, and we plan and operate all our tours with this at the front of our minds. We believe that every tour operator must be responsible in the way they conduct their business, to ensure the welfare of all people and the conservation of the environment.

We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. On trips like this through Asia, dress standards are conservative, and we recommend loose, lightweight clothing so as not to offend and to ensure respect of Asian culture, particularly outside of the major cities.

We keep our group size to a minimum wherever possible, with 16 as the maximum number on this trip, but we usually find the average is about ten passengers. This helps to reduce our impact as travellers but also enables us to support local economy by staying in locally owned accommodation, travelling alongside locals and eating in small undiscovered restaurants – these unique experiences almost always turn out to be the highlight of the trip for our passengers.

Travelling down the spine of South-East Asia, enjoy spending the night on a sleeper train from Khao Sok National Park to Bangkok. We use the sleeper train because our travellers get to interact with local people who are always friendly and willing to mix with travellers, it gives travellers a real insight into local life and how Thai people travel from one destination to another and it reduces unnecessary pollution as we aren’t hiring out private vehicles.
In Penang our hotel is situated right in the heart of historical Georgetown and we visit an exceptional char koay teo stall on Kimberley Street that has been serving up tasty noodles since 1645. We encourage our travellers to support the stall by purchasing their dinner here and buy locally made souvenirs from the many market stalls dotted around the town. We always try to eat at locally run restaurants to support the economy by putting imperative financial funding back into the community.

In Khao Sok National Park, we stay in locally owned rafthouses and we visit the UNESCO listed port town of Melaka where we sleep in a Baba home. Travellers can get a real insight and develop an appreciation of the country’s history here.

As a company, our responsibilities don’t stop when our tours end. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 10 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002, from health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and in environmental and wildlife protection. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.

We also support two charities in Thailand: Friends of the Asian Elephant, which aims to protect and conserve the welfare of elephants both domesticated and in the wild and the Baan Unrak (House of Happiness); an orphanage and community relief centre for children and destitute women, providing them with shelter, food, clothing, education and employment.
