Around every corner Thailand amazes her visitors and you never know what's coming next!
Like every other developing country on the earth, Thailand has her problems. There are areas of the country that are seemingly 'forgotten'. And like every other developing country, Thailand has organisations that want to offer help and assistance where it's needed. For the team at trunk, we are dedicated in helping to protect and improve the lives of the captive elephant population. We do this through hard work, passion, strategy and by working with the local communities to introduce effective and lasting change.
By travelling with trunk you will be directly impacting this change. A percentage of your tour fee will go directly to support our partners and ensure longevity and sustainability of the work we're all focused on achieving.
One of the most underrated countries in south east Asia, Cambodia offers the traveller so much, yet has so little. Still considered a third-world country, Cambodia is still suffering from the horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime that happened just 40 years ago, a very heavy shadow that the locals are doing whatever they can to remove.
Cambodia is a fascinating country. In many areas it proudly displays an upcoming economy. In others, poverty is rife and very visible. It's certainly not a country for the faint of heart, yet when you meet the locals, you can't help but fall in love.
The two main cities that draw tourists are the capital, Phnom Penh in the south and Siem Reap in the north. But there are also some fabulous beaches, islands and other town that need to be experienced. And a trip to Cambodia, indeed to south east Asia, is not complete without a visit to Angkor Wat - the largest religious building on the planet, over 1,000 years old, and a testament to human ingenuity. Luckily, on our tours to Cambodia, we have you covered.
India is as fascinating as she is busy - and boy oh boy, is she busy! The hustle and bustle of the major cities such as new Delhi and Mumbai (formerly Bombay) is a sight to behold in itself. The collision of colours, explosions of noise and nostril-tingling smells shouldn't be understated as India is arguably the most fascinating sub-continent on planet earth
With a population of well over 1 billion, it's not difficult to understand why India is busy but it manages to stay organised, and at times, relatively calm, which is one reason why so many travellers head here to 'zen' out, relax and find themselves.
India isn't all about her major cities. Away from it all, India has the most breathtaking scenery. From the Himalaya mountain range in the north, to the stunning beaches of the Goa peninsula and everything in between, India has something for everybody and the people are incredibly welcoming and friendly.
If you've always wondered about what makes India so special, you simply have to experience her charms to believe it. Travel with trunk and we'll make sure you have the most incredible time possible.
Touring Vietnam is as fun as it is exciting. Travelling the length of Vietnam is constantly becoming easier thanks to ongoing improvements to the infrastructure, quality transport solutions and extremely friendly locals. From the stunning mountainous rice paddies in the north, to the thumping beaches in the central areas to the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta in the south, Vietnam has everything to offer to intrepid adventurers and is most definitely a country that must be explored.
The stunning, vibrant cities of Hanoi, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh and more should be on every travellers list and if you're lucky to visit Vietnam with Trunk, we'll take you to each, and further afield.
Vietnam shouldn't be only talked about because of the war. The people, the food, beaches, nightlife, shopping, scenery are all very special and give Vietnam a charm and mystique all of her own. Travel to Vietnam with Trunk and we'll show you areas that are usually only accessible to locals and give you a slice of Asia that is as unforgettable as it is breathtaking.
