29th May - 21st August (12 weeks)
Bali is a land that seems to have a magnet at its very heart. It is a feeling that is difficult to understand unless experienced, but once visited you will surely be compelled to come back and you may even want to stay forever, such is its pull. Maybe it’s Bali’s beauty, maybe the friendly people, or maybe even the influence from spirits that certainly abide on this “Island of the Gods”. We’ll be spending 4 glorious weeks in the haven of hipsters, wave hunters, and health nuts, Canggu.
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai is a perfect mix of traditional thai culture, modern amenities, mouth watering food and drink, inspiring creative scene, great nightlife and beautiful nature in the surrounding area. Spend your days working away in cafes sipping on delicious cappucinos. Spend your weekends scootering up through the mountains to Pai, walking with elephants, white water rafting, temple hopping or any of the other many activities in the area. Spend the evenings wandering through night markets that sell what is indisputably the best street food on the planet. And spend your nights dancing the night away in one of the bars hosting live music, which seems to be all of them!
Koh Phangan, Thailand
We're sure you've heard of this tropical island's most famous attraction, the Full Moon Party. A stop on all South East Asia backpacking circuits, this mother of all parties can draw over 30,000 people in peak season. Most stay for just few days, not venturing far from Haad Rin. Stay a little longer and you’ll find the type of island you’ve seen in the movies. Covered in waterfall infested jungles, and surrounded by dozens of pristine beaches, you’ll have the opportunity to experience real #islandlife. Apart from the obvious attraction of the full moon party, Koh Phangan and its neighboring islands have plenty to keep you busy. You’ll find yoga studios where you can practice your downward dog, and treks through the jungle to refreshing waterfalls and panoramic vistas. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can head over to Koh Tao, known as one of the cheapest places in the world to become a PADI certified scuba diver.
