Everyone has a place that they call home and for us that is Thailand. We grew up here and this is the country that inspired us to bring our friends abroad in order to see a different part of the world, differently. Is Thailand over-traveled? Not when you’re with Smiling Albino. Our connections, roots, experiences and resources allow us to offer everything from street-side simplicity to ultra-luxury. Amazing tropical beaches, vibrant cities, ancient ruins, beautiful temples and lush jungles – Thailand really does have it all. By night enjoy some of the best night clubs in Asia and by day relax on world-class tropical beaches or trek through jungles to remote hill-tribe villages. Simply put, our Thailand tours are second to none. This is where Smiling Albino got its start, hand-crafting adventures since 1999. Our creative itineraries are sure to dazzle the most discerning traveller and leave you remembering your time in the Kingdom of Thailand for years to come.
Bangkok – Temples, Cuisine & Nightlife
Bangkok, the City of Angels, is a must-see with its colourful neighbourhoods threaded with canals and crammed with markets, temples and world-renown street food. Bangkok offers many interesting nooks and crannies, unique shopping, some amazing rooftop bars and, if you like, you can even snack on a well-seasoned local delicacy – fried grasshoppers!
The north of Thailand, with its exuberant forests, rivers and mountains, serves well as our adventure playground. Activities and amenities abound. From cycling and motor-scooter riding, to hiking and paddling, charming riverside towns, luxury resorts, boutique lodges, elephant conservation, native art and diverse cuisine, the Smiling Albino Northern Thailand experience will satisfy any passion. We would love to host you here.

Thailand Grand Slam
Two weeks showing you the very best Thailand has to offer. Beginning with the grand sites and local hangouts in Bangkok through the magnificent ruins of ancient Ayutthaya, we move north for a wide range of activities in Thailand’s spectacular northern province, Chiang Rai. Designed to challenge or pamper you as you wish, we’ll hike and paddle, ride bicycles, elephants and motor scooters exploring the Thai, Myanmar and Lao borders of the infamous Golden Triangle. From hip restaurants and boutique accommodations, to unique activities and colourful local characters, this adventure captures the charm and spontaneity that is the very essence of Thailand. This Two-week journey was designed with an eye to value and authenticity, creating a total quality adventure experience.
This adventure takes you full circle: from modern capital to ancient ruins and enchanting mountain villages. This clicks off all the “must-see’s” and features the best of urban and rural areas, while delving deep into the lifeblood of Thailand. This program is a shortened version of the Thailand Grand Slam for those who don’t need to get their beach on.
This is an epic twelve day, multi-activity trip that takes you to lesser-visited but not less spectacular sights throughout Thailand. You’ll experience a colorful concoction of fun in the city that is Bangkok, from ‘must see’ temples to interesting alley-side bars and hidden neighbourhoods. Enjoy a day of casual cycling between floating markets outside of Bangkok before flying to Chiang Mai, ancient capital of the Lanna Kingdom, to completely shift gears (literally). We’ll drive our own tuk tuks south, making our way to Siam’s birthplace of Sukhothai before rounding off this historic and immersive Siamese experience exploring the villages, caves and beaches of Trang in the South. Add it all up and you’ve got a once-in-a-lifetime Siamese discovery adventure!

Using mountain bikes, motor scooters (optional!), kayaks, foot power, boats, elephants and private vehicles, each day allows you to challenge – or pamper – yourself as you wish. Your adventure ends with the perfect capstone: The Elephant Mahout program at the Anantara Golden Triangle, where you’ll learn how to become an elephant whisperer at one of the most respected elephant camps in the country.
