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

The crowds and crowds of mopeds on the roads in Vietnam and getting across the road! Joining crowds of people and the sense of anticipation felt when waiting for the sunrise over Ankor Wat. Being taught to create and cook my own wrap.

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

Relax and enjoy. When crossing the road in Vietnam.... just go for it! DO eat the local food - its delicious. Try to travel light - there is a lot of moving around and some of the buses struggled to accommodate a large amount of baggage.

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

Difficult to tell. We ate at local restaurants so we did put money into the local economies of where we were staying.

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

I really enjoyed it - generally I tend to go on wildlife orientated vacations; this was more cultural & historical so it was quite different from previous vacations we have been on. That said I found it interesting to learn about totally different cultures and countries. Our guides were very helpful and if there were any problems (one lady had an problem with her room in the first hotel) then they did their best to sort it out. Mark, our guide in Cambodia was very knowledgeable not only about Cambodia as it is today but also about its history. The trip was very well organised throughout.

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

The sampan ride through the jungle at Xe Quit and coffee in the floating market in Vietnam.

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

Keep a journal! Be prepared for some gritty and moving history lessons! Remember the insect repellent.

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

Yes, we ate in local restaurants, used sustainable travel methods (in the main) and had the opportunity to buy souvenirs in the local markets.

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

Extraordinary and leaving me wanting to see more! The resort at Koh Mak was idyllic, the temples in Cambodia were a must see and the whole "vietnam" experience was very authentic.
