Reviews for Thailand holiday, culture and beach
Claire Shaw review 12 Nov 2013
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?The elephant trekking in Chiang Mai. We were a bit apprehensive before we went having heard/read about how many of the elephants were treated before we left. However, the elephant appeared to be well cared for and it was an experience we will never forget (even if our thighs were quite sore afterwards).
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?Check where about you are staying during the beach part of the holiday. We stayed at the Beyond Resort which was located in a nice quite part of Krabi. This suited us but wouldn't be any good for people wanting to go out in the evening really. However, the people at Responsible Travel were very good at arranging the type of holiday that would suit you and your budget.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?I am not sure how much the holiday benefited the local people. We did tend to stay in smaller hotels and eat in some more local restaurants (outside Bangkok where it was all tourist buffets which were terrible) but most of what we did was the major attractions.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?The holiday overall was an experience of a lifetime and I could not have wished for a better honeymoon (although some of the mornings were very early).
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
