“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao-tzu

The world is a big, exciting place! There’s adventure waiting around every turn!

You tell us where you want to go, and we take care of all the grunt work in making reservations, co-ordinating transport, and having on-ground support, so you can spend your vacation enjoying as much of your time as possible, and less time online trying to connect all the dots.

If the journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step, then your first step is as simple as sending us a quick ‘hello’!There’s no commitment in contacting us – sometimes just talking to one of our travel gurus is all it takes to decide if this is something for you, or even if it’s something you can handle on your own or not.

Do you remember reading those awesome “Choose Your Own Adventure” books when you were younger? Staying up late, spending hours choosing which path your novel’s hero would go on, and essentially deciding his/her fate through one adventure after another adventure! You could re-read them over and over again choosing a different path each time, until you got the story exactly how you wanted it!

Flash forward to the present day.

You’ve chosen many different paths for your personal character to follow to get to where you are today. You’ve had to choose what field of work to seek employment, where to live, what to save money for, and what to spend it on, even deciding between your morning green tea latte or double espresso cappuccino… and now you’ve found yourself here! Ready to choose the next BIG adventure of your life – custom tailored to exactly what you’ve always dreamed of!

Where Sidewalks End (WSE Travel for short) is an adventure planning company. Not exactly what you’d call a travel agency, but very much our own kind of well oiled dream-making machine. We will plan, coordinate and run your custom made trip, leaving the hassle of trying to figure it all out for yourself at the door, along with the rest of life’s stresses and worries, meanwhile you flip through the pages of your adventure and fully immerse yourself in what’s happening… as it happens.

We do the hard stuff, so you can focus on the easy and fun stuff!

WSE Travel will mastermind and arrange everything from the overall plot and story settings (hotels, transportation, expert guides and travel gurus), to the smallest of details in the character development (restaurants, special events and activities, and everything in between) in your custom adventure. We consult, create, manage and connect you with the world you wish you discover! Every good story needs the basic three elements: people, places and things. Our trips’ ‘authors’ are worldly gurus with a bottomless magic hat full of knowledge and experience who will help you perfectly mix and marry these elements to give you a trip that would make Captain Planet jealous!

Through a series of questions and conversations, we try to get to know you and your ‘travel personality’, to help guide you in creating the best Choose your own adventure trip itinerary that is perfect for you! We’ll put it all together, send you the ‘e-book’ of your itinerary, and once we get your go ahead and payment approval, we can send you on your way. You’ll be able to travel, stress-free, knowing you’re being looked after by people who care as much about your custom adventure as you do!

Every good story comes as a result of a good brainstorming session. The same holds true to your dream trip! Once we have your general info, we can co-ordinate a phone or Skype call. We get to know you, you get to know us, and we’ll be able to mutually get a clear picture of your travel style. From there, we can start examining how our services can meet your needs and expectations.

For that matter, you can call us right now if you want. +66 87 486 0327.

There’s a chance you already know exactly where you want your adventurous chapter to take place, and at what time of the year… or maybe, like many, you haven’t got the faintest idea as to where to start. No worries either way. That’s what we’re here for. You can bounce ideas at us, and we’ll bounce ideas back. Choosing the best destination, and the most ideal time to travel there can be a lot of work, and it’s nice having people who live and work on the ground in those destinations to be able to help you through it.

Assuming you decide you’d like us to plan your journey, we’ll complete this step by gathering some personal information and collecting a non-refundable deposit ($250) which we put in your own personal Safety Deposit Box and will be applied towards your adventure.

Ok – so the plot of your story is self-evident… you’re going on an adventure. We know the main characters (you and your lucky travel companions). We’ve established the setting (where the adventure will take place, and when). To work through the conflict (the difficulties in planning) together, we will now develop the theme of your trip.

We’ll establish some hotel options based on your personal preference and decide which ones are best for you. We’ll work out the best flow, amount of time and order of each destination for your ‘choose your own adventure’ to make sure you can maximize your time and enjoyment along the way. We will develop a plan for essential flights and transfer logistics needed to get you from A to B. Then we will discuss the really fun stuff – many of the various things to see and do.

By the end of this stage we will have your first draft ready. This will have the general outline of your custom tailored adventure story. With this information, we will be able to figure out an approximate price for you as well, based on the season and all of the desired inclusions.

We know where you’re going, how you’re getting there and where you’ll be staying. Now to get back to the fun stuff, and the part you’ve been waiting for! Do you go down the jungle trail, or enter the spooky looking cave entrance? Do you meet with the local hill tribe, or join a pirate ship diving for hidden treasures? We’ll mastermind expeditions, explorations and experiences that suit your personality the best. We can refine the plans until each day has as much (or as little) adventure as you’d like. This is where it really becomes your own custom adventure. As soon as we’re clear on what you want to do we’ll tentatively hold reservations on all your arrangements.

As soon as you’re ready to commit to this incredible adventure, we’ll collect a confirmation deposit which amounts to $250 – regardless of where you’re going or what you’ll be doing.

At this point, all arrangements are secured and your trip is confirmed… but choose your own adventure novels always gave you the option to go back and choose a different path! We can do this for you too… up to the point where we fall under the mercy of cancellation penalties, typically 45 days prior to your departure.

We can refine options for eating and drinking, guiding you to places we think you’ll love. Maybe you decide you want to do that sailing trip in the end, or perhaps you prefer to cut the sky dive segment after a discussion with your travel mates. Not a worry. We’ll make whatever changes you see fit to ensure this is truly the trip of your dreams, and adjust the final prices and reservations accordingly.

We’ll send you a final itinerary, and collect full payment once we reach 30 days prior to the start of your trip.

Right before you depart, we will send you your Boarding Passes to be printed. These are your final travel documents which contain all the information you need to know (i.e. contact numbers, daily details, confirmation numbers), plus a bunch of information that’s nice to know (i.e. ways to respect local cultures while on tour). Once you have the Boarding Passes in hand, we’ll go over it with you (by phone, skype, e-mail, carrier pigeon, etc), cross check all of the adventure arrangements and answer any questions you may still have. Oh, and if you want to make final minor adjustments to the plans, we’ll help with that too. We are here to help make your life easier, and give you the experience of a lifetime!
The day you’ve been dreaming of since childhood is upon you now. Your adventure begins! Your bags are packed, your airport taxi is waiting outside, and the only thing left for you to worry about now is what cocktail you are going to enjoy during your first sunset.

We haven’t left your side either. If you need help, we’re only a phone call away and totally committed to supporting your trip until the moment you get home.

Naturally, as with any great novel, we’ll be keen to hear all about your adventure. We’ll collect your feedback online, by phone, or in person—whatever works for you. Your comments help us improve our service and plan better trips. They also help us get to know you even better, so we’ll have just the right suggestions when you’re looking for inspiration on where to go next.
