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

In Kaziranga National Park, it is wonderful to see the rhinoceros, deer in the glassland closely. This national park can maintain the original appearance. It is surprise to walk through different types of bridges, especially the living root bridge. It is the wisdom of local people. We enjoy to stay in the cottage which is the homestay in Kongthong village. It has the characteristics of local home with a clean, silent and comfort environment. Cheerful chatting with the village lady and understand the tradition practice of not naming a baby with call each other with vocal sounds.

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

Drinking water is the important concern in Kolkata. The quality of water in North East regions become much better. Currency exchange in the airport of Kolkata is low and need to pay tax.The tax rate is up to 9-10%, horrible. Therefore bring the ATM card is the best way to get the IR currency or exchange in your own country.

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

Sure it is.

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

Overall this holiday is relax and can recharge on a whole. I can see the big difference between the city, Kolkata and rural village of India. I enjoyed the silence and cleaningness in the north east region of India. The curry of different meals have different taste that most of them are yummy, especially the mutton curry. Thank you Gaurav for arrangement of the whole holiday. I can know some of the culture and the living of the people in North East India.

Dear Ha, we all really enjoyed hosting you on this tour. The driver and all the hosts were happy, and specifically mentioned to me that they enjoyed hosting you. I am glad that your first visit to India was memorable. Yes, I do agree that the exchange rates are not too good at airports, and we always advise people to use debit cards. We can probably include this point in our checklist next time. I do hope to see you and Chigo again in India.
