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

There were many, but we loved arriving at Hin Boun park by boat - even if we did have to do a lot of pushing! and La Folie down in the south of Laos was perfect!

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

If you want to get off the beaten track a bit in Laos you do have to do some homework - unless, like us, you have a car to take you places. Otherwise it could be difficult and I wasn't aware of lots of road signs or even detailed maps. Food away from towns is basic but delicious - like Vietnam, Laos knows how to make the best of fresh veg and fish. Luang Prabang is apparently now heaving with visitors, but the centre and south, where we were, is relatively quiet - parts of the 4000 lslands would be busier - and definitely worth the effort.

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

We did our bit by taking impromptu adult English classes one Saturday morning - to our surprise! Otherwise, who knows. We were taken to a mlnorities village and hated that and have suggested it be taken off any future visits. The villagers didn't appear to be involved in any sort of activity and we felt very uncomfortable, getting out as quickly as possible. Sorry.

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

Super!
