“In Vientiane I arrived early and visited Museum of Contemporary Art which had amazing wood tree root carvings. I think it would be good to suggest a visit as an option for people in their free time. Its something like 10k from the city centre, so best if people share a taxi. ”

“Would definitely recommend this trip even if you have been to South East Asia before. Well paced and an interesting varied itinerary in the time available. Wit is a great tour leader. Nothing was too much trouble and everything ran smoothly. It wasn't clear from the trip notes which of the meeting points (there are 6) at Bangkok Airport the Explore rep for the transfer to the Hotel would be waiting. We exited the baggage reclaim at meeting point 6. We ended up wandering up and down the arrivals hall for a while before meeting them by chance at meeting point 4. The hotel in Bangkok was in a good location for the main sites and close to restaurants, Khao San Road and a 7/11. Would recommend the Mango vegetarian restaurant near Khao San Road. Really enjoyed the overnight train. Food on the train was fine and delivered to one's seat. You might want to bring an eyemask/ear plugs/layers for the air con if susceptible to the cold. Chiang Mai hotel was good, slightly out of the centre and within walking distance. Really enjoyed eating at the Night Market and nice to wander around Chiang Mai centre at dusk visiting temples. Comfortable mini buses for the journey from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai: reasonable leg room even if 6 foot tall. Some twisty roads from Chiang Mai but manageable (also after lunch en route to Laos border). Fairly basic hotel in Chiang Rai, in nice setting, with good breakfast. Nice food in the Night Market with live entertainment. "Interesting" Cat Cafe near the Night Market, even if just to stand outside and admire. Journey to Laos border via viewpoint with nice views over the Mekong and border between Burma, Laos and Thailand and interesting hill tribe museum. Make sure that you have nice new crisp US Dollars ($35 for us) for the Laos border crossing. The boat trip down to Luang Prabang was fantastic. Really spacious boat; delicious food; relaxing pace and beautiful scenery. Stayed overnight at Pakbeng. In the morning at breakfast keep an eye out across the river as you may well see elephants being brought down to the river. You'll need a zoom lens for a good photo! Luang Prabang is atmospheric though you may not have the sunset viewpoint to yourself. Nice vegetarian food at the Bamboo Tree restaurant and then you can pop into the Joma bakery for fresh cakes (Also a nice Joma in Vientiane). Ground floor rooms in the Luang Prabang hotel were noisy due to water tanks/plumbing outside. Nice breakfast area. Vientiane was nice to wander around in the evening. New Rose hotel has nice rooms though a bit lacking on the breakfast front compared to other hotels on the trip e.g. policing of the amount of toast allowed! The Buddha Park is well worth a visit (optional trip). It's a great way to see everyday life in Vientiane on the drive there and the Buddha Park itself is unexpected. COPE visitor centre was interesting. Suggest buying snacks on the day of the flight to Cambodia (poor breakfast, limited airport options and small cold lunch- salad/meat- on plane). Loved Phnom Penh. It's noisy, polluted, gridlocked but has something about it that grabs you. The trip to the Killing Fields and S21 museum would benefit from being a three quarters/whole day. Half a day made it feel rushed particularly at S21 museum where without a guide we ended up touring the site in reverse. He showed us around a bit but didn't keep the group together. You'll be taken to meet a survivor of S21 with the chance to buy a book about his experiences. For books about that era in Cambodia's history I would recommend "First They Killed My Father" by Loung Ung and "River of Time" by Jon Swain. John Pilger has some good essays in "Distant Voices". The National Museum is interesting and a nice setting. Highly recommend the Friends restaurant and Romdeng restaurant, both of which are part of the TREE Alliance. Really delicious food. The Masala Dosa Street Kitchen cafe is a really great place to get....you guessed it...Masala Dosa. Hotel room in Phnom Penh were fine, although twin rather than double. Breakfast not great. Nice views of the Cambodian countryside on the bus journey from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. Pleasant hotel in Siem Reap (room safes in both Cambodian hotels) though good luck ordering eggs for breakfast. Best local guide in Siem Reap (except when hung over). Also no mention made of dawn visit so would need to make a point of mentioning it if interested. Need to specifically ask re cooking classes. Marum restaurant, another Tree Alliance operation, has delicious food and a nice courtyard setting. You'll get offered the Ancient Angkor guide book by Michael Freeman and Claude Jacques for $10 at all of the sites you will visit in Angkor. The same book is on sale at Siem Reap Airport for $14 which has "authentic version" on it so perhaps the ones on sale at the Angkor sites are bootleg versions..... Book the trip- you know you want to and you won't regret it! ”

Bangkok - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Home to some 11 million people, bustling Bangkok can often seem chaotic and intimidating to a first-time visitor but don’t be put-off. Once you delve into the life of the city, you’ll discover curious markets, enduring canals and reverent temples wrapped up into surprisingly cosmopolitan way of life. The more you explore Bangkok, the more you’ll come to love the mix and match style of this ‘City of Angels’.

Travel Highlights

  • Visit the Wat Arun, the iconic Buddhist temple, which is pictured on Thai currency. Found on the Chao Phraya River and facing the Grand Palace, climb its main spire and look-out over Bangkok. Wat Arun means ‘Temple of Dawn,’ so visit at sunrise for the best view.
  • If you need something, anything, while in Bangkok, head to the Chatuchak Weekend Market. This is souvenir shopping on another level.
  • Khao San Road is a backpackers paradise. You’ll find travellers galore here and so it’s a great place for nightlife, food, shopping and meeting people.
  • Watch a show at the trendy Patravadi theatre. Performances include theatre and dance as well as acrobatics and musical shows.
  • The Rot Fai night market is made for vintage lovers. Selling antiques, vintage clothing and memorabilia, spend an evening perusing unusual finds.
  • Visit one of Bangkok’s uncountable malls for the decor as well as the well-priced goods. Terminal 21 is especially known for its gorgeous interiors.

Travel Tips

  • Bangkok has a hot, humid climate. Make sure you drink plenty of water while you’re running around the city sightseeing.
  • While it’s always nice to be friendly, be vigilant on the streets and politely decline help from the locals if you are uncomfortable.
  • Bangkok is a big city, plan ahead when it comes to transport.
  • Don’t take a taxi in rush-hour traffic. If you do take a taxi, make sure the meter is running.
  • Carrying ID is expected in Thailand. Carry a copy of your passport just in case.
  • Don’t hesitate to bargain!
  • Save money on food by eating from the local street-stalls. Maybe fried cockroach for dinner?
  • Bangkok is famous for its amazing rooftop bars - check some of the best ones out here
