Reviews for Thailand vacation, culture and beach


review 12 Nov 2013

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

The elephant trekking in Chiang Mai. We were a bit apprehensive before we went having heard/read about how many of the elephants were treated before we left. However, the elephant appeared to be well cared for and it was an experience we will never forget (even if our thighs were quite sore afterwards).

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

Check where about you are staying during the beach part of the vacation. We stayed at the Beyond Resort which was located in a nice quite part of Krabi. This suited us but wouldn't be any good for people wanting to go out in the evening really. However, the people at Responsible Travel were very good at arranging the type of vacation that would suit you and your budget.

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

I am not sure how much the vacation benefited the local people. We did tend to stay in smaller hotels and eat in some more local restaurants (outside Bangkok where it was all tourist buffets which were terrible) but most of what we did was the major attractions.

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

The vacation overall was an experience of a lifetime and I could not have wished for a better honeymoon (although some of the mornings were very early).
