    I did an Intrepid tour through Thailand. It was called 'A Taste of Thailand'. We chose the 10 day option and it was amazing! We went as a family, (the 1st family holiday in many many years) Being my mum, dad, me, my brother, two sisters and my nana. The tour started out in Bangkok and from there we made out way up in to the mountains by bus. It was amazing watching the transition from the crazy bustling, dirty streets of Bangkok to the serene, green mountains. Throughout the tour we stayed in a few different types of accomodation, mainly guest houses. I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone wanting to get out of the normal 'go to thailand and lay in a resort' as this way we got to explore the real thailand, going in to remote villages, having home cooked food for us from the villages, going to a childrens orpanage (if you can, bring them gifts, we bought them coloring pencils from home that don't get used any more, anything is appreciated). Our tour guide, Arjan was particularly great as she had grown up in the area and knew everything about it. When ever our bus would stop for fuel she would come back with all these crazy thai foods and fruit that we wouldn't have known what they were otherwise! A highlight would have definalty been the waterfalls. It was an option as we had the choice between that and a cooking class. Warning: the waterfalls are not for the faint hearted (my nana didn't do this) as it is about a 2 hour walk (climb) up a mountain on rugged paths (if there is any at all) but definaltey worth it. On the way we passed probably 10 different pools, all glowing different shades of iridecent blue. when you get to the top you are rewarded with two pools that you can swim in, (but be careful of the little fish who try to 'kiss' you!) Overall, this trip was amazing and I cannot speak highly enough about it. If you ever get the chance to do it, I recommend it for all ages as it was entertaining, challenging and informative.
