Thailand: West Island Hopping - Backpacking Trip

Hosted by


Guided trip
Hello! My name is Eden and I am 24 years old. I'm from Canada and work in the healthcare field, as a nurse. At home I have an adorable cat and love to spend my time off outside (hiking, swimming, etc.) My goal is to backpack through as many countries as I can - with this being part of that. I am setting off on a trip around the world in Jan 2025 and Thailand is one of my stops. This trip will take us through some of the most famous west islands over the course of 2 weeks. The expected trip itinerary will start in Phuket and end in Krabi. Throughout the itinerary, I have some suggestions of what to do along the way. Any travelers wishing to join could opt into certain activities or chose to have free days to rest/explore/etc. ***Please note that this itinerary is relatively low-cost for that reason - there are not a lot of activities included***

I love planning and have taken the time to put together this itinerary. However, I'm hoping for travelers to join me that want to backpack through this country together. I am not hoping to formally lead this experience like a tour. There might be some bumps along the way - please come prepared with an open mind :)

Accommodation: I am setting off on a long trip around the world, and I am trying to be as budget conscious as possible. This trip will be staying in reputable hostels with good reviews. I intend to stay in shared dorms to keep cost down. There might be one/two cities where I plan on splurging and the group would be staying in private/twin rooms instead. In case of questions, please contact me in the Q&A!
