    5.0 - Excellent

    The best parts of this Intrepid tour: the abundance of little food stalls & markets, and the absence of grocery stores. Using the shoulder as a third lane during traffic jams. Bowing and saying kap kun kah. Charcoal slow roasted bits of pork on skewers, salty & sweet and socially acceptable to eat 24 hours a day, best with a little bag of sticky rice eaten by hand. Using hand gestures to overcome language barriers. Mangosteens. Pomegranate juice for 25B. Children riding in the back of pick-up's or on the front of their parents scooter. Falling asleep to the rhythm of a train. Deep fried garlic and buffalo. Slow 2-day journeys down the Mekong past the sandy shores of Laos. Bumpy roads to incredible waterfalls. Nighttime traditional cooking classes over wood burning fires.

    4.0 - Good

    Trip was good value for money. As with most Intrepid tours, accommodation was "hit and miss", but overall clean and comfortable. Tour guide, Ant, was very organized, patient and helpful and very interested in ensuring our safety and enjoyment. She always wore a big smile. Laos was by far the most interesting part of the trip. The cruise down the Mekong was relaxing, provided some welcome cooling, and included stunning scenery. Luang Prabang was also a highlight with its quaint French architecture and the beautiful waterfall.

    I had a great time on this trip, coinciding with Lan Kratong so we got to join in the celebrations. (dep. date approximate. It was 10 years ago, which just shows you don't need to mess with a winning combination!)

    The trip was extremely well organised, and the time spent in each area was just right for the time of the tour. The small group size allowed us to be inobtrusive and observe instead of being observed.
