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

It is hard to pick out one thing but it would include staying in the jungle in a treehouse, visiting some amazing temples, eating street food in an evening market before catching the sleeper train, treking in the jungles, canoeing down the river Kwai and the awesome beach on Koh Lanta.

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

Take lots of Deet and diahorra tablets and travel as light as you can. Book an extra day at the beach at the end because you will need a good rest before the long flight home (and the beach is amazing).

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

We ate at locally owned places. All trips were run by people from the local area and employed local people.

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

We are a family with two sons aged 17 and 14. We were all entertained all of the time. A great mix of culture, lots of activities and relaxation. We were never bored. Our guide Aor was fun, informative and made our trip a very relaxed one.

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

So many wonderful memories. The day trip in Bangkok was fantastic, boat trip on the lily and lotus covered lake at Thale Noi Bird Sanctuary beautiful, and meeting the elders at the Sakai settlement was both fascinating and humbling. My teenage children would say that the night train experience, canoeing at Ban Chao Mai National Park and swimming through the Emerald Cave were the most memorable bits.

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

Bring a waterproof camera for the caves and canoeing! Don't worry about your tummies - my children drank smoothies at all the restaurants and didn't have any problems. The food everywhere was fantastic!

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

Most definitely. It was lovely seeing our guide using local guides and helpers on our adventures.

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

As our first holiday in Asia it was fantastic. Our guide was so friendly and helpful we really didn't have to do anything but have a great time! We experienced a bit of Thai culture and history, some exciting adventures and had a relaxing time at the beach! Wonderful food all the time. Wonderful holiday.
