review 4 Apr 2014

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

The cookery course at Cooking at Home. The railway and war cemetary at Kanchanaburi, elephant training centre. Time to "chill"

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Think about booking an extra night before/after the trip. The hotel in Bangkok is close to the markets of Banglampu and Thawet and the best shopping was in Bangkok. Be prepared for the heat/humidity. Up to 40 degrees in March. However this is a very leisurely trip and most of the accommodation was very comfortable so it was more than manageable and I came back relaxed not exhausted.

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

Yes mostly, we had lots of free time and hotels were usually in good locations where you could purchase food/drinks from locals, visit the markets. A couple of meals in hotel or 'tour' restaurants but most others were local or street markets. Elephants were well cared for.

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

Good. Our guide was less enthusiastic than most guides of this company I have travelled with in the past , but she was organised and the hotels were very efficient.
