Reviews for Thailand by rail holiday


review 3 Feb 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Visiting Hellfire pass and the war graves cemetery near the river Kwai, very moving. Cycling round the ruins of ancient Sukhothai and chilling out in Chiang Mai.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

We caught the night sleeper train down from Chiang Mai to Ayutthaya, go 1st class if possible also the train passes through Ayutthaya station at 4:30am so we stayed on till Bangkok 1 hour 30 minutes down the line and got a train back north at a more respectable timeto check into the hotel.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We mainly used locally owned small hotels and took taxis, Thai street food is cheap and tasty and the money stays with the locals.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent trip to Thailand, very well handled by the tour operator.
