review 21 Mar 2019

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

I particularly loved visiting the group of pagodas at Wat Chalerm Phrakiet spectacularly perched high on a limestone ridge; and the ride up the mountain at breakneck speed in the back of a truck was quite exciting too!

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

It's an interesting but busy itinerary so maybe plan some downtime at the beginning or the end of the trip just to chill out.

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

To a degree; we ate in local restaurants and stayed in small guest houses or hotels.

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

We really enjoyed it. Our guide, Wi, was excellent throughout and as well as spectacular temples we also visited markets, unusual museums and were lucky enough to also witness an elephant feast festival which was a real highlight.

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

Too many exciting experiences to recount. However we loved the alternative accommodation in the lodges - made a refreshing change from the usual soulless 5 star hotels. The spectacular scenery of the Andaman Sea on the boat trip from Koh Lanta - simply unforgettable! Kayaking down the River Kwai - just amazing.

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

Take as little luggage as possible. Be open to new experiences and try new foods including the infamous 100 year old eggs! Upgrade to first class on the night train!

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

Yes. We spent our money responsibly and this was easy because the local people were so helpful and friendly, the service was second to none. We embraced the local travel enthusiastically - even the night train which was a very relaxing experience.

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

Ten out of ten! The most memorable holiday ever! Can't wait to do it all again! The holiday was made especially memorable by our knowledgeable and personable guide - Pascal.

review 28 Oct 2011

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

Grand Palace and Wat Pra Keow in Bangkok, Elephant ride in Jungle, boat trip snorkelling in Khoa Sok and getting absolutely soaked in a sudden monsoon downpour in the rain forest!

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

It's hot, so more shorts, less trousers, plenty of sun screen and mosquito repellent and a lightweight waterproof jacket.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

No holiday where you fly half way around the world can be described as having minimal impact on the environment. We ate in local establishments rather than hotels, so I do feel holiday benefited local people.

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

Many activities, ably led by a great guide and overall very good value for money.
