Our Story

Our Story

Stray Away is founded by friends who came together as travel pals and became family. We are a collective of Thailand locals and experts who love this country and wish to share all it has to offer in a unique and exciting way. Our trips are based on years of our own adventures with the aim of connecting each traveller to a network of local friends made along the way. Each of our trips is designed to introduce you to the incredible culture and lifestyle of Thailand that we love so much. We take care of the planning so that you get to relax and enjoy all that that the Land of Smiles has to offer! Our passions are travel, Thailand, each other, and the smiles on travellers faces after another amazing day.
