Without a doubt, the best trip ever!!!

Dear BigFive,

We recently returned home from what was, without a doubt, the best trip ever!!!
We enjoyed absolutely every activity we participated in, every hotel, and
every wonderful location.  It was so much more than we expected!!!
All of our guides were pleasant, personable, knowledgeable and
flexible.  They certainly did all they could to make this a trip of a
lifetime.  They took us to see everything we expressed an interest in and
then some!!

Our hotels were outstanding!!!   We were upgraded at nearly all of
the hotels, and they were worth the trip on their own.  The Hotel was
so nice, they celebrated my birthday with a cake, a bouquet of flowers, a note
from the manager and head of housekeeping, and finally an invitation to a
cocktail party held on my birthday!!  What a memorable day.
The Hotel in Siem Reap was elegant and colonial with the most
amazingly huge pool I have ever seen in a city hotel.  The hotel in Luang Prabang was so contemporary and beautiful, it was a real
surprise.  In fact Luang Prabang was a very pleasant surprise.  Chiang Mai was gorgeous!!!  with a room on a private floor with an enormous balcony and an outdoor shower!!  All of the hotels were convenient and we were able to do things
on our own because they were close to everything.

I wish I could give you a specific activity and call it the highlight of our
trip but that would be impossible!!  There was something nearly every day
that would fall in that category.  But there were 2 days that were truly
highlights – the day in Siem Reap when we saw the smaller temples, went on the
tethered balloon ride over Angkor Wat, and then went for an evening cruise on the
moat with cocktails and canapés.  What a DAY!!!   The second
fabulous day was in Chiang Mai when in one day we visited:  an elephant
camp (I love elephants) and went on a long elephant ride through the hills, an
orchid plantation (gorgeous), hill tribes (very interesting), and then Tiger
Kingdom (a sanctuary not on the itinerary).  We felt truly lucky to have
been able to enjoy so many wonderful things on one trip.

Thank you so much for everything, it was incredible and I know trips like that
do not just ‘happen’.  You did an amazing job putting this together and we
appreciate the effort it took to make this trip absolutely wonderful!!!

Thank you, thank you!!
