Note about Full Moon Party dates: Although it is possible your Thai Intro tour may coincide with a Full Moon or Black Moon party on Koh Phangan, this is not scheduled as part of this tour and cannot be guaranteed. If you are interested in going to the Full Moon party, please make sure you do your research and plan your flights accordingly.

Please note: We try to run as many of our start dates back-to-back, so that your Bali Intro tour can begin as soon as your Thai intro tour ends. On occasional start dates there may be days in between where you will need to arrange your own accommodation. This is a great opportunity to explore more of Thailand for yourself. Why not spend a few days roaming around colourful Bangkok, or plunge into the party paradise of Koh Phi Phi island. Speak to us and we can help you organise an incredible interim adventure before you jet over to the Bali!
