While famous for it islands and beaches, Thailand has far far more to offer away from the maddening tourist crowds.

The famous Thai smile only gets wider as the tourists get thinner. Bangkok is one of the most fascinating cities on earth even if only to experience “A” traffic jam. It will be your experiences in the less visited rural destinations that will be etched into your memory with even better food than the more famous dishes.

Insects anyone?

From old ways to fast food, beaches to mountain minorities Thailand has it all.

Beach Time

Baktrax do not go to tourist-only beaches.

All of our beaches will include some level of true local culture as well as the sun and sand.

Prachuap Khiri Khan is the highlight here. Want to get drunk on a beach with your fellow country people? Baktrax is not for you.

Best Local Markets

These markets will be the highlight of highlights for first-time visitors.

The food markets will be unlike anything back home. Thailand is the king of food markets in the region with every town having at least one.

Just a few of the great ones are an undercover one in Roi Et or street ones in Lopburi, Mukdahan, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Phitsanulok & Samut Songkram. Not to mention numerous others in both Bangkok & Chiang Mai.

Cultural Discovery

This is what Baktrax is all about. Our aim is to show you things that you could never dream up.

Firstly you will be amazed by the friendliness and hospitality of all the different cultures. Those who were worried about the safety factor in regards to crime will soon realize it is far safer in this regard than back home.

So you will find out that not everywhere in the world is like your own back yard. You will learn this in so many different ways. Nothing in the Baktrax world is the same as back home. Maybe you do not live in the best country after all.

With all today’s terrible events we suggest a visit to multicultural Malaysia would be a great starting point to put your cultural doubts to rest.

Food

Everyone has had Asian food.

Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! Unless you have been to Asia of course.

A Thai or Vietnamese restaurant may be good back home but they don’t usually even get close to being on the ground.

You will get to taste the food you never even knew existed. Real Thai food that is never seen outside of Thailand. Restaurants in Malaysia where the locals eat every day that will knock your socks off.

You will get a great cross-section of both local and tourist-oriented food depending on the destination. There are just so many great ones. Almost impossible to have a bad meal in the region.

…Insects in Isan anyone?

Having a Cold Beer

Need we say any more? Most people on holiday enjoy an extra drink.

While a Carlsberg in Malaysia, Leo in Thailand, Angkor in Cambodia, Tiger or 333 in Vietnam are all top drops most travellers agree that Beerlao in Laos tops the list for both taste and cost.

But this activity is not a highlight alone.

It is actually more about where you partake in this activity. Everywhere is good but some places are great.

Start at our riverside restaurant in Bangkok on arrival. Then maybe it’s just sitting roadside at the local mini-mart table or a Mekong riverside restaurant in Luang Prabang or Thakek in Laos.

Baktrax is in no way about getting full but rather soaking up the atmosphere with a pre-dinner drink in an exciting destination.

Live Music Venues

All big cities have live music…so these will be easy to find.

But Pai in Northern Thailand is a place worthy of a special mention in this regard; for a small town, it has a number of venues.

Or sit outside our Khon Kaen hotel for nightly live music in an extra relaxed way.

This activity will be easy to find in many places with Thailand having even more choices that others.
