Itinerary:

Day 1 Bangkok, Thailand    
Arrive at any time and welcome to Thailand's famous capital - Bangkok! This evening, the famous Khao San Road is on the itinerary for your first night out. Explore this buzzing traveller hub with your CEO and check out the lively bars and dance parties that line the street. Grab a Thai beer or tea and connect with your fellow travellers.      

Day 2 Bangkok to Surat Thani      
Get on first-name basis with Thailand's capital city by bike with an optional bike tour. Today, you can check out Wat Pho and the Grand Palace, go for a street food crawl, relax with a Thai massage, or explore the klongs (canals) by boat before boarding the overnight train.      

Day 3 Surat Thani to Khao Sok      
Lush Khao Sok National Park awaits. Today, you can set off to Lake Cheow Lan to take in the views while hiking or swimming in the national park. Spend tonight falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle.      

Day 4 Khao Sok to Ko Samui Island    
Your next stop is just a ferry ride away. Today, explore Ko Samui Island's beauty by catching the sunset at Chaweng Beach before eating your weight in street food at the night market. For your big night out, head to a popular beach bar and enjoy a drink on us to celebrate life-changing adventures.      

Day 5 Ko Samui Island
Take a scenic day trip to pristine Koh Madsum, with a stop first at the colourful reefs off of Koh Taen. The views here are unforgettable — try to spot all the different kinds of marine life and explore by kayak and on foot.  

Day 6 Ko Samui Island, Thailand to George Town, Malaysia  
Gear up for a long day of travel. Ferry back to the mainland and continue by private vehicle to cross the border into Malaysia and on to George Town, Penang.  

Day 7 George Town
A full day in Penang. Explore the busy streets and check out the colourful famous street art. Trust us: they make for a great backdrop!

Day 8 George Town to Chenderoh Lake      
Learn about local culture (especially how to properly tie a sarong!) at this island homestay, nestled in the middle of a beautiful lake. Tonight, relax as you take in the scenery and connect with the family that runs this homestay.  

Day 9 Chenderoh Lake to Cameron Highlands
Enjoy slightly cooler temperatures in the Cameron Highlands. Here, explore the well-marked trails through the lush tropical forest, visit a tea plantation, or search for the rafflesia: the world's largest flower.  

Day 10 Cameron Highlands to Kuala Lumpur
Today is yours to take on. Walk around and explore, but don't skip trying the national dish of Malaysia, nasi lemak — a traditional rice dish made with coconut milk and pandan leaf. Once the sun sets, see another side to the city as you stop by the famous Petronas Towers (which light up at night) before checking out the local nightlife.      

Day 11 Kuala Lumpur      
You've got the whole day for exploring. Head out of town to visit the famous Batu Caves or the Orang Alsi Museum. Later tonight, head to some rooftop bars for drinks and dancing, or stop by the night market and find some flavours you never knew existed.  Built in 1928 as a fresh market for locals, and revamped in the 1980s as an outlet for all Malaysian handicrafts, the night market is a local institution. Make sure you don't miss it.      

Day 12 Kuala Lumpur to Melaka      
Take to the canals by boat, and see a different side of this old port town. Stop for some famous chicken rice at Kedai Kopi Chung Wah in Chinatown. Locals love it here; they often line up for hours to get a taste. The streets of Chinatown (also known as Jonker Walk) are also lined with Peranakan (Straits Chinese) shophouses offering their traditional cuisine, Nyonya. Explore the many temples, churches, mosques, museums, and forts.  

Day 13 Melaka to Singapore    
Head to Singapore today, where you can use your free time to see that famous skyline by boat or eat so much street food, you can barely walk. For a peek into the city-state's past life, wander the old streets of Little India and Chinatown.      

Day 14 Singapore to Jakarta, Indonesia
Fly to Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia and the economic heart of Java. There may be some travellers leaving the tour in Singapore and others joining in Jakarta.      

Day 15 Jakarta to Cianjur      
Ride to Cianjur and let the scenery guide you to some serenity. Floating villages, tea plantations, rice paddies, and a night at a local homestay —this side of paradise is looking mighty fine.

Day 16 Cianjur to Bandung      
Get to know the city of Bandung today. After an orientation walk, get free time to visit charming Braga Street for its shopping and cafés, or see the Angklung Music Orchestra and hear the angklung, a traditional instrument made of bamboo pipes.    

Day 17 Bandung to Yogyakarta    
Watch the world go by on a scenic train ride to Yogyakarta. Once you arrive, and if you're not feeling too tired, check out Sosrowijayan and Prawirotaman Streets for unwinding with drinks and local eats.  

Days 18–19 Yogyakarta    
There's more to discover in Yogyakarta today! See some Javanese temples, the volcanic Mt Merapi, try street food like gudeg (curry made from unripe jackfruit), or soak in the last rays of the sun at the stunning Buddhist Borobudur temple complex — and make sure you don't forget your camera.  

Day 20 Yogyakarta to Ngadas      
Take the scenic route to Ngadas via train and private vehicle. Here, you'll spend the evening at a local G Adventures-supported community homestay. Get a taste of local culture with a home-cooked dinner and time with a community leader to learn about the region's unique customs and history.      

Day 21 Desa Ngadas to Bromo      
Today's for reaching new heights. Start the day with a trek along the Ancestor Trail to Mt Bromo, led by a local guide trained through the G Adventures-supported capacity building program. Then get a chance to hike to the volcano's crater before going on to the hotel.

Day 22 Bromo to Red Island    
Skip sleeping in today for a pre-dawn hike across the Sea of Sand to Mt Bromo, where you can catch a final glimpse of the moon before the sunrise. Stop to breathe it all in before you head to a beachside surf camp.      

Day 23 Red Island      
Wake up and catch a wave on a morning surf lesson, then take the rest of the day to explore the nearby fishing village, surf some more, or rest easy in a beachside hammock.    

Day 24 Red Island to Pemuteran      
Head back to Bali for a chill day of relaxing on the beach. Sit back, grab a drink, and soak up some sunshine. This is the place for it.

Day 25 Pemuteran
No need to say goodbye to the beach just yet — it's another day of chilling out in Bali. If you'd like, break up the beachside naps with a snorkelling or diving trip to Menjangan Island.    

Day 26 Pemuteran to Kuta
Take it easy this morning before we cross rich tropical jungle and idyllic rice fields on the ride to Kuta. Catch up on sleep on the drive over — you're going to need it for your big night out tonight. Spend the evening getting to know Legian Street, the legendary party street. Grab a drink on us and dance the night away!
