The most exciting part of the vacation was the flight of the ribbons experience (more)Toby Wallis
I think it was being away together with our family somewhere exotic and adventurous and making memories but I was most taken by going to the elephant sanctuary and living in a solar powered beautiful lodge right in an elephant enclosure. I still can't believe that we got to do that! (more)Lisa Apfelberg

Memorable parts? Many memorable moments....perhaps it might be the half day bike trip outside Bangkok ..... most imaginative and informative. Tips? Check all hotels proposed to see if they meet ur requirements .....and try to get best room if you can even if it involves small premium. Can determine ur enjoyment. Local benefits? Not especially noticeable. Overall rating? Very good. Logistics were perfect and places chosen to stay were quite satisfactory. (more)Robert Leigh

From
£2,500

Memorable parts? It was all fabulous but real highlights were our guide Nui, the cooking class in Chiang Mai and the wonderful temples everywhere Tips? Skip Lopburi, not worth it and thus avoid the long drive to Shukothai. Spend more time in Chiang Mai, it is worth it and go all inclusive for the beach part! Local benefits? Yes I did. We planned it so that we always stayed in locally run hotels (apart from BKK) Overall rating? it was really wonderful (more)Laura Leonardo

From

Memorable parts? A 2-day trip down the Mekong River and Luang Prabeng! I really enjoyed Laos. Hanoi and Saigon are incredibly bustling cities but have their charms. Tips? Group dynamics change as some people leave after 2 weeks and others join. Sometimes it is difficult to make the adjustment but after a few days the new travelers become part of the original group. Local benefits? I definitely think it benefited local people. Overall rating? Excellent! (more)Patricia Ruble

Memorable parts? Visiting Hellfire pass and the war graves cemetery near the river Kwai, very moving. Cycling round the ruins of ancient Sukhothai and chilling out in Chiang Mai. Tips? We caught the night sleeper train down from Chiang Mai to Ayutthaya, go 1st class if possible also the train passes through Ayutthaya station at 4:30am so we stayed on till Bangkok 1 hour 30 minutes down the line and got a train back north at a more respectable timeto check into the hotel.

The day spent boating on the Lake in Khao Sok National Park was wonderful; we had sunshine for most of the day and it was simply spectacular. Swimming and snorkelling off Koh Lanta was wonderful.

From

Memorable parts? Staying at Bottle beach on Koh Phanghan island. Tips? Be self contained so when the youngies go off drinking you still have a great time. Local benefits? It seems in Thailand tourists are big consumers and there doesn't seem to be any recycling. Also lots of people drinking using paper cups, straws and plastic bags handed out with every purchase in the numerous 7/11 shops all over Thailand and not much awareness about it all. Made me sad I did have conversations... (more)Michaela O
