Thailand is backpacker heaven and one of the world's top gap year destinations and it's not hard to see why!

Bring on the buzz of Bangkok, Full Moon fun on Koh Phangan, daring dives from Koh Tao island and loads more Asian adventures! There are few better places to volunteer or gain a new skill; learn to dive, help out with marine conservation, get a paid teaching job or go martial arts mad with lessons in Muay Thai boxing. Make new friends at the Full Moon Party and sample the legendary 'Thai Bucket'. With a pinch of city spice and a dash of island flavour, tuk-tuk into Thailand for the perfect gap year trip!
