Imaginatively devised, well planned and executed. The best parts were the visit to the Sakai tribe, Sukhotai World Heritage Site, the longboat trip down the Kok River & the trek to the Northern hill tribes. (more)Charles Moberly

I loved the Central Plains homestay, after Bangkok it was amazingly beautiful and peaceful. All the cooking schools were so beautiful and peaceful, and the food was amazing! (more)Suzanne Smith

The cooking and the eating were the most memorable! Fabulous. (more)Stacey Cooper

Photography tour in Laos & Thailand
Memorable parts? Almost too many to recount! The rice terraces at sunset and dawn, the hike through Tiger Leaping Gorge, the Stone Forest, the lake and mountains and pagodas at Dali, the Jade Dragon Mountain at Lijiang, Shangri-La, the markets and ethnic minorities.... Tips? Take some dollars, go (unlike locals) between Nov and April - we had superb weather; take some warm clothing for the Tibetan plateau; take plenty of film/memory cards! Local benefits? Very much so. We... (more)John deason

Elephant conservation holiday in Thailand
Fantastic!!...Being so closely involved with the elephants, and learning so much about these wonderful animals! (more)Helen Baxter
The holiday was fantastic. The highlight of the trip was, without doubt, the three days we spent getting up close and personal with elephants. It was a truly magical experience, and a privilege to interact so closely with such noble and intelligent creatures. Unforgettable. (more)Nicola Jane
For me this was an excellent experience which lived up to my expectations and more. Plenty of variety and personal challenge. An excellent tour guide/escort who was knowledgeable and lovely to have with us. Gave me a good understanding of Thai culture and close up working with elephants. (more)Hannah Wilson
From £2150 including UK flights
Thailand, Laos and Cambodia holiday
Memorable parts? The train Journey from Bangkok, the days on the Mekong and the guided tour of Bangkok. Tips? There are not too many high spots on this holiday, as it misses out the main sights. This is a rather low key trip and some of it is very beautiful. It does take you to less visited areas. Prepare for two full days of travelling at the end to get to Phenom Phen. Local benefits? Definitely relations with local people were respectful and brought benefits to them. Overall... (more)Lesley Holly

Indochina holiday adventure
Memorable parts? Treking through the jungle and then meeting a hill tribe in Laos - drinking local whisky with the "chief." Meeting other lowland tribes in Laos. These visits gave us an appreciation of how people live (very different to our own lives!) A day sailing down the Ou river into the Mekong river and another day sailing down the Sangker river in Cambodia. Visit to the Golden Triangle and a very enjoyable stay in Luang Prabang. Eating with fellow travellers, enabling us to sample... (more)Joyce Godfrey

Southern Thailand holiday, reefs & rainforests
A great break, a brilliantly organised holiday, the tour guide OH really made it what it was, his in depth knowledge and enthusiasm for Thailand really made a difference. The train journey down to Nikon si thammarat was great... waking up in the morning and opening the window to a whole new world, as the train travelled through the rainforest was truly spectacular, it really made the experience real, much better than a boring aeroplane !

Thailand travel information

Bangkok may appear increasingly westernised, but even here in the capital city modern life is underpinned by a strong sense of history and tradition. The network of canals (khlongs) offers visitors a different view of city life from that which is presented in the teeming bustle of the streets. There are over 300 Buddhist temples and shrines within the city limits, and among other sites of interest are the Pakkard Palace, National Museum and famous floating market.

In the central plains, the ancient city kingdom of Sukhothai is a World Heritage Site and covers a huge area of palaces, temples, pavilions, lakes and waterways. There are numerous community-based trips and visits available in Thailand, especially in the north around Chiang Mai, where the rich heritage and traditional lives of the various hill tribes can be experienced by staying in local villages.
