Reviews for Couples therapy and life coaching holiday in Thailand


review 18 Dec 2012

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

The most memorable and exciting parts of my holiday were the day spent as an elephant trainer with Thai Elephant Home (awe inspiring), visiting the mountain temple Doi Suthep (absolutely stunning), lighting lanterns with the novice monks of Wat Pan Tao during the full moon of Loy Krathong, chatting with monks at Wat Chedi Leung, wandering around the night markets, visiting the Hill Tribe community, and without a doubt chatting with Luke, Son, and local Thai people at every opportunity.

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

Go with an open mind & heart. As my first trip to Thailand, Central Chiang Mai was far more hectic than I expected or imagined. That said, the local Thai people are very open and kind. I had numerous fascinating conversations with local Thai people about their lives in Chiang Mai and they were more than happy to recommend interesting places to visit and things to do. On a more practical level - sunscreen, insect repellent, and some small waterproof bags for your cameras during visits to the forest for elephant training & zipline tours are a must! Chiang Mai is a very compact city, which is quite easy to navigate by foot. Enjoy, relax, and have at least one proper Thai massage!

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

Yes! For many half or day trips, we had full minivans, the drivers were Thai, and every staff member I met was also Thai. During the day spent at the Thai Elephant Home & Flight of the Gibbons zipline tour, we received a very interesting overview of the organization, how they support conservation, and try to minimize their environmental impact. (The biggest drawbacks from eating "street food" was the Styrofoam waste.)

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

Exactly what I needed and when I needed it most!!! The staff of Puripunn & organizers of the Life Change Program are very welcoming and some of the kindest and warmest people I have ever met! I agree, "I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever had!"
