Our travel agency and travel planner did a fantastic job for my wife and I and our friends. From the initial call with our travel planner discussing our trip desires to the detailed itinerary to follow they both met our needs perfectly and more importantly executed the trip to perfection.
We wanted to immerse ourselves in the culture of SE Asia experiencing the people, their lives, their food, and their heritage and our guides did just that. We had 5 guides in total throughout our trip and with each we felt like family when we departed.
We wanted to have good accommodations and what we got exceeded our expectations. Every stop was a joy and the people so gracious. What we got exceeded our expectations but not the budget we discussed at the very beginning.
Thank You to our travel company for giving us Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand in a trip of a lifetime that we will cherish and never forget.
The people of SE Asia are so gracious. Our guides did such a great job of immersing us into the local culture. Whether it was the industrious activity of the Mekong Delta and the river markets or the street food in Bangkok it was so memorable. We happened to be traveling in Vietnam the week before the TET (Lunar New Year) and the preparations were very active. Being able to see and feel the importance of this holiday to the Vietnamese people was so gratifying.
Spending the time to understand the history and religious beliefs of these countries has to go down as most memorable. The importance of Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam and Confucianism to the Buddhist Beliefs in Thailand as well as the Khmer Empire in Cambodia it is all so amazing and such an important aspect of the trip.
Highlights such as kayaking in Halong Bay, the food of Hoi An, the vibrant markets in every town, the temples and Pagoda's, the river markets and train market outside of Bangkok, and enjoying the street food are all such amazing memories. There are way too many!!! Of course can't forget Angkor Wat!! WOW
We knew that for the first three weeks of our trip it was going to be very active so we decided to take our last 5 days of the trip and go to a resort on an island in southern Thailand. Our travel agency secured us amazing accommodations at and amazing resort on Koh Lanta. This was luxurious and allowed us to unwind and decompress what was an amazing trip of a lifetime.
It all worked out so well I'm not sure anything could have made it better. With all the moving parts usually something goes astray but in this trip it all worked very well.
So having said that our trip from LA to Hong Kong had a very short layover, 45 minutes, and we were late and missed our connection to Saigon. Thus began a lengthy saga of airport personnel trying to take care of what ended up to be many people with their connections. In the end, we made it and the good news is that we had planned for an extra day in Saigon before meeting our guide so everything worked out perfectly. The interesting part is that our international travel from the states to SE Asia and back was the only part of the trip we did ourselves. So everything our travel company touched was perfection. It was only my part that go messed up! Next time I will let this company handle everything!!!
