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? Cycling around Sukhothai National Park, playing with elephants and staying at the home stay near Chiang Mai. Tips? There’s a fair amount of coach time on the first day but worth it once you get to Sukhothai. No time in Bangkok with the group so worth getting there a day or two early. Local benefits? I was frustrated with the lack of available water refill facilities but that’s Thailand's broad issue. I felt that the trip was mindful of the impact tourism... (more)Silvia Gorgues Miquel

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

The water is as clear as crystal and the fish are of every shape, size and colour that you can think of, so many of them that you don’t know which way to look. Tips? You cannot do it in less than 4 nights. The drive from Phuket to Kuruburi is 3 hours, so you arrive in the early evening and stay the night there, then 2 nights on Koh Surin, and on...
