    A fantastic trip! I enjoyed cycling along long stretches of coastal road, among the padi fields and speeding down some great downhill stretches in the hill country. Some of the uphill sections were challenging and the traffic was a little busy on occasion,... Read more

    The homestays chosen by Explore were terrible and upsetting in their animal welfare issues. Explore should warn customers what they will expect to see then they can make up their own minds. I would not have gone.
