Sherilyn Reus

Sherilyn Reus is a foodie with a developing case of wanderlust. Her taste buds lead her adventures, and take her to new places that incite awe and wander. Check out her original recipes on ContourAndCravings.com.


Bangkok: Bangkok, the metropolitan city that never sleeps. If you love a fast-paced lifestyle, you'll easily fall in love with Bangkok. Enjoy its flavorful foods, shopping, and the abundance of curious nomads.

Phuket: If Phuket had a middle name, it would be "relaxation". Expect pristine waters and chill vibes, a stark difference from the energy of Bangkok. Get ready to bury your feet in the sand and soak in some Vitamin "Sea”.

Phi Phi Islands: Explore beaches, lagoons, and caves as you hike the beautiful countryside and enjoy epic sunsets. You'll have plenty of adventure and nightlife to choose from as you fall in love with vibrant Thailand.

Welcome to the hustle and bustle of Bangkok! Get acquainted with your Trova buddies over bites and drinks.

Arrival: Festivities start in Bangkok at 6pm. Fly into Bangkok International Airport (BKK).

Included: Welcome dinner with the squad!

Want a real taste of Thailand? Introduce your taste buds to authentic Thai cuisine made by you! We’ll shop the markets and hand pick produce before we delve into the kitchen.

Included: Cooking Class

There's plenty to see while in Bangkok, from craft vendors to floating markets. Use this day to choose your own urban adventure! We recommend dabbling in the street food, moo ping (grilled pork) is an easy go-to street snack.

Today, we'll fly to Phuket! Known for its tranquility, we'll have a chance to relax as we recover from fast-paced Bangkok.

Included: Flight to Phuket

Today’s theme is “treat yourself” with a spa day. Sherilyn will provide special beauty tips and hacks in-between all of the relaxation and thai massages. Life’s tough!

Included: Spa Day with Sherilyn

Like Bangkok, there's a plethora of activities to enjoy in Phuket. Today, we'll visit an elephant sanctuary to partake in the larger than life feeling that these incredibly magnificent creatures provide.

Included: Elephant Sanctuary Visit

Off to the Phi Phi Islands by Ferry! Believe it or not, the waters are even clearer and bluer over in Phi Phi. We'll spend the day taking it all in!

Included: Boat to Phi Phi Islands

Thai islands are commonly known for their “half moon" or "full moon” parties, so things will certainly "turn up” tonight (Friday) for our final night together.

Today is the last day. You'll have the option to ferry back to Phuket or on to other islands and new destinations for continued exploration. Until next time!

Included: Boat to Phuket

Departure: We'll drop you off in Phuket by 1pm. Fly out of Phuket International Airport (HKT).

Check flight options below. We recommend holding off on booking your flights until you receive your trip confirmation email, but this will help you price it out and book when you're ready!


All of our trips include accommodations, transportation between cities and a number of activities relevant to the theme of the trip you're joining us on! Most of our hotels also include breakfast, but that varies by destination. We'll also bring a trip Ambassador to guide you through your experience as well as include all kinds of recommendations for every leg of your trip. Welcome to a better way to see the world while learning new skills!
Flights are not included. Need airline assistance? Email us at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll help get you what you need.
Excursions and tours vary trip to trip. Refer to the trip itinerary to see which activities are included. We’ll send recommendations for optional experiences leading up to the trip as well. Prices vary depending on what you get into, but typically range from $50-$150!
Typically breakfast is included, but it varies trip to trip. You can ask your ambassador for tips on where to eat cheap if you’re on a budget!
TrovaPass is a subscription where you earn credits on a monthly basis that can be applied towards trips. It is not currently available to new subscribers.
A down payment of $299 is due at the time of booking. The down payment is refundable until your spot is confirmed at which time it becomes non-refundable. You will receive an email when your spot is confirmed. The remaining balance will be charged 45 days prior to the trip departure. If you book within 45 days from trip start, the full amount will be due at booking, but still refundable until your spot is confirmed.
When you book your trip, your spot will enter a pending status. In most cases, your spot will be confirmed shortly after booking. In cases where there is limited space or if the trip has not yet achieved the minimum number of bookings required for confirmation, your pending status may last longer. While we should know sooner, you’ll be notified at least 60 days prior to trip start whether or not your spot is confirmed. Your down payment is refundable until your spot is confirmed. We recommend not booking a flight until your spot is confirmed.
We cater to young professionals past the stage of roughing it - that means no hostels and no hotels below 3 stars. We strive to create an experience that’s not only authentic, but also easily accessible and comfortable. All hotel locations are conveniently located near the heart of each major destination, so you can live like a local. Less time in transit means more time doing; save the commute for back home.
No more than 20 travelers on each trip. In order to create a personalized experience, we feel it is important to keep group sizes smaller. Sometimes, less is more!
We try to start and end all trips in a major city with an international airport for your convenience. It’s up to you whether or not you want to continue your adventure after the trip end!
We will send a detailed itinerary with everything you need to know at least 7 days prior to your trip start date including hotel information and where to meet up. You can expect each trip to kick off with a Happy Hour for you to meet everyone after settling into your room. Cheers!
You’ll sleep in twin, double or triple shared accommodations with private bathrooms. Traveling with a friend? Just plug in their name while booking under "Roommate Request" or shoot us an email at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll ensure you’re roomed together. Uncomfortable with sharing a room? Let us know and we'll give you a quote for a single-occupancy bedroom.
Excellent question! We’ll provide a full itinerary including hotel and transportation details at least 7 days prior to your vacation including all necessary travel information. Accommodations often change depending on the group size, so we like to get the exact itinerary out to you when finalized to avoid confusion.
If you’re leaving the country, you’ll need a valid passport that doesn't expire for at least 6 months from the date you depart on your trip. You may also need a Visa. Unfortunately, we cannot provide Visas or guidance on Visas, so please check with your local consulate. You'll probably also want some spending cash (and card), clothes, a bathing suit, toiletries, and anything else you want to show off on vacay! We'll also send you a packing list leading up to your trip.
Each trip is assigned an Ambassador who will lead your group through the full itinerary. You’ll be introduced to your Ambassador prior to your trip. Feel free to reach out with any questions regarding your upcoming trip or link up on social media!
YES! Don’t feel pressured to find someone to join you on a trip. Part of the Trova experience is traveling with complete strangers so you can meet new and wonderful people from around the world. We purposefully match you with like-minded travelers to make the experience easy.
We purposefully keep schedules light so you don’t feel overwhelmed and have time to explore or relax on your own.
Leading up to your trip, we’ll provide recommendations for optional activities you can partake in. Email us at hi@trovatrip.com if you have activity ideas or recommendations.
Have a love for all things travel? We’re always looking for people who love travel as much as we do. Apply here if you’re interested in leading trips as an Ambassador!
Don’t be a stranger! Send us your questions at hi@trovatrip.com. We love hearing from you whether it’s a question, suggestion, request or anything else you might think of.
