Explore Thailand Off the Beaten Track
Fresh Mango juice with mint leaves served at a lazy, remote beach. A boat trip on a lake, hidden deep in the mountains far away from the crowds. A sleepy border town where locals invite you for a game of pool before you cross into unknown land way off the beaten track. A trek through villages with a touch of yesterday. At Go Beyond we have for more than 20 years inspired independent travellers to choose roads less travelled in Thailand.
Thailand – for the crowds or the roads less travelled?
20 years ago it was predicted that Thailand would soon loose its position as the prime traveller destination. But it never happened. Our travellers continue to return here. They come for the easy going ness, the friendly Thais, the fine food, beautiful scenery and fine logistics. Thailand is still THE gateway to Southeast Asia and Indochina.
And though there are more travellers than ever before, there are still abundant of roads less travelled. To the border area of Sangkhlaburi, up the Burma border from Umphang to Pai and Chiang Mai, deep into Isan province or the most southern Island Koh Lipe.
At Go Beyond we are travellers ourselves, and we love to explore new local roads, and venture off the beaten track. We are bursting with ideas, insider tips and knowledge, that we would love to share with you. Whether you are an independent traveller, who is just looking for a piece of advice, or a someone who’s looking for a tailor made trip to explore Thailand.
… In more than one way, Thailand is special to us. It is home to three of our very unique places:
Our Urban place – New Road Guest House, Bangkok
In the early 90’s we decided that we wanted to place our Travel Service Center near Chinatown and the Chao Phraya River. We wished to be in a local neighbourhood, where people were living. Near the fine riverboat transportation system and the colourful, lively Chinatown with the finest small shops, old cinemas, amulet sellers, high quality street food, and Karaoke bars.
…And one day we found the New Road building. It was an old building and not flashy at all. But we liked its location close to the River, not too far from Chinatown and with easy access to other areas in the city. And so it became our home away from home. Up until today, New Road Guest House is your comfort zone in the middle of bustling Bangkok.
Our lake hideaway – The Lake House Adventure
In a remote area of Thailand, close to the Burma border, in the middle of lush mountainous tropical forest is a lake. A lake with floating islands of water lilies, submersed Mon temples, hunting eagles, foraging horn bills, fishermen in fragile canoes, stunning cliffs with monkeys, flushing waterfalls, and villages on islands with a touch of yesterday.
The Lake House is your floating hideaway, where you can stay in comfort in the middle of remoteness. Every day you anchor a new place and our guide brings you on new explorations, far off the beaten track.
Explore our Lake House Adventure.
Our Beach Place – Koh Kood Beach Resort
Many years ago we were in search of our own remote area cove to build a beach hideaway. So we embarked on boat trips along the Thai coasts in search for a spot we loved. We looked for an island with local ambience, that was laidback and which we trusted would be a perfect place for our travellers to hang out.
…And one day, while searching the (at that time) both remote and tranquil island of Koh Kood, we found the spot. Koh Kood is easier to get to today, but it is still tranquil and laidback with small dusty villages on roads less travelled.
Koh Kood Beach Resort is our beach hideaway. If you are looking for a laidback luxurious feel, with a fine cuisine, lush tropical surroundings, and an infinity pool on an island off the beaten track, then Koh Kood Beach Resort might well be your choice.
Find your real Thailand
The only thing left is for you to explore and experience Thailand yourself. And when you are not sure if you should go right or left, let this poem by Robert Frost guide you: "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."
See you on the roads beyond – Happy Exploring, Happy Travels!
