We had an amazing trip to the travel company, truly a life-changing experience! We visited Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An in Vietnam, then traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia, and ended our journey in Bangkok and Chaing Mai, Thailand. The travel company assigned us to very friendly, informative and knowledgeable guides in each city. Our excursions led us through the streets of Hanoi, sampling street foods and beverages, visiting floating fishing villages and the sheer serenity and beauty on Halong Bay, experiencing the Vietnamese countryside on the back of a scooter, sunrise tour of Angkor Wat, and other temples in Cambodia, Thai massage and temple tours in Bangkok, and hands-on cooking class in Chaing Mai. But our favorite adventure was caring for the elephants at a sanctuary in the mountains outside of Chaing Mai.
I cannot properly articulate how special and easy this trip was for us. Every transition to each country was smooth and relaxed. Our guides were always there to help us navigate the new cultures, tastes and experiences. The hotels the travel company booked were comfortable, luxurious and classy.
Working with the travel company was a joy! Our travel specialist adjusted our itinerary to match our interests and pace. While planning our trip, if we had questions or wanted to adjust the itinerary, our specialist returned our emails within 24 hours, and would tweak our itinerary until we were satisfied. I highly recommend the travel company!
We truly loved experiencing the cultures, food and temples. The adventures that were off the beaten path were the most memorable! The tour to merchants homes on the outskirts of Hoi An was very special — to visit the their homes and understand their way of life was amazing! Another special memory was receiving a Thai massage among the temples at Wat Phra — so relaxing! However, working with the elephants at a sanctuary outside Chaing Mai was so unbelievably special and a true highlight. It was an experience of a lifetime!
We loved the food — pho, banana blossom salad and spring rolls in Vietnam, amok curry in Cambodia, and pad Thai, chicken satay with peanut sauce and khaow-soi curry in Thailand. We had a hands-on cooking class outside Chaing Mai, Thailand that will bring back the flavors of our time in Southeast Asia, should we be lucky enough to find the ingredients at home!
If we were lucky enough to repeat this trip, we would extend it a few more days to have more down time in the afternoons to enjoy the beautiful swimming pools that were at our hotels. And maybe venture down to the beaches of Thailand. But overall, it was a perfect trip!!
