All the arrangements that you made for us worked perfectly. We were well taken care of both with wheelchairs in the airports and transportation and accommodations on the ground. The guides were all very capable and personable, but we especially enjoyed (guide) in Phnom Penh, who lived through the Pol Pot terrible times and freely shared her personal experiences.
We survived the heat and humidity and were lucky in that it rained only one afternoon. There were some evening showers but that didn’t affect our touring. (Guest) really enjoyed riding the elephant bareback, but that was the one event that I didn’t do as I felt there was too much walking involved. I took advantage of my free time to get a Thai massage. I was able to take part in all the other planned activities. When the guide at Angkor Wat saw me show up at the airport in a wheel chair, he arranged for a wheel chair for the longer distances at Angkor Wat.
What will I remember most? The beautiful architecture of the temples and palaces, the green, green scenery, the so gracious and welcoming Thai people, the many curves in the road going up and down over the mountains. Also, as it was the slow season there were few other tourists in general. Frequently we would be the only patrons in a nice restaurant and we would have 3 or 4 wait staff to take care of us! Thanks so much for all your careful planning.
