    3.5 - Good

    The accommodation in the 2nd village was poor. I slipped on the wet steep wooden steps and my bare foot slammed into a timber post. The whole hut shook whenever any of us 11 turned over or moved slightly, thus we didn't sleep well. More quick photo stops along the way would be appreciated. Damrong's instructions and briefings were sometimes confusing and inadequate. Overall very enjoyable.

    2.0 - Rather poor

    Do not go on this trip if you are looking to be travelling with anyone under 40. I went on the intrepid trip expecting to meet other young travellers in their 20's and instead majority of my trip was couples in their 60's. It was not at all the fast paced exciting trip I had imagined or signed up for. The tour guide, was miserable, absolutely did not want to be on the trip and she made that very clear. Anytime any of us had questions she would roll her eyes and try avoiding the question. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is included... there are so many tours and activities that I wanted to do, but EVERYTHING was at an extra cost onto of the cost of the trip. The trip was such a disappointment i actually ended up leaving a week before it was over and that was the smartest decision I could have made.

    Mid - late October was a great time to see Northern Thailand. The rain from the wet season is starting to ease and you also beat all the tourists arriving in November. This tour was amazing as you get to experience the historic and cultural aspects of Thailand. Some of the tour highlights include: - Visiting the bridge over the river kwai and going to the JEATH war museum - trekking for 3 days through the mountains and visiting hill tribes. - riding elephants through the jungle and going rafting in the nearby river. - feeding monkeys at the monkey temple. - patting tigers at the tiger temple. - getting up into the golden triangle and having the opportunity to go into both Myanmar and Laos. - using a variety of transport to get around - tuk tuks, rick shaws, overnight trains, rafts, motorbikes etc etc. A large age range does this trip, but you can always trek with Intrepid as to the numbers going and the age profile of fellow passengers. For those who want to see the highlights of Northern Thailand without the hassle of making their own arrangements, this trip is awesome!!
