Thai Dinner and Classical Thai Dance Tour from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
We actually enjoyed the food, needless to say we were tired as this was our first night in Bangkok after flying for 21 hours. We thought the room where the dinner & dance show took place was very noisy, as so many people attended. Since we ate while the show went on, from where we were sitting, we could not always see the scene, being obstructed from waiters & people going back & forth, so we lost interest after a while missing out either on the show or on the food, being annoyed with having to stretch our neck trying to catch the show, note that we were sitting on the floor, the Thai way, not quite comfortable, but that was expected.

Long-Neck Karen Hill Tribe Tour Including Elephant Ride from Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, Thailand

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
Chiang Dao cave was a good visit, not much to see at the temples we went, there were all of Burmese style. The long-tailed boat trip was a pleasant ride & the highlight was the discovery of this new resort where we had lunch, this was where we got on the boat. MaeKok River Village Resort, was pleasant, the food was excellent, flowers all around, and brand new, well decorated. As for the villages all the tribes were in one & the same area, lined-up behind their outlet where they all wanted to sell the same product. Not very imaginative, once you bought whatever item, the other 50 people lined-up also wanted you to buy from them. In the end we stopped in 2 villages, very poor, no adults to be seen as all working in the fields, only kids, chickens,dogs & pigs. The few people we saw did not like their picture taken. Although our guide was telling us their situation has improved, we thought it was a difficult way of life, in poorly and dirty conditions, however they had a place to stay, food to eat and education for the children.

Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Sorn 3-day Northern Thailand Tour

Chiang Mai, Thailand

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
The tour included 2nites at the Tara Imperial Hotel, it might have been a superior hotel in 1920.. although they tried hard to give superior service, the rooms were smelly with humidity, the pool old, did not see anyone use it, the food was not great, so no matter if they set the table properly, it could have been better. On our journey we had also booked another package Thaton and Long-necked Hilltribe including long-tailed boat trip, where we stopped for lunch at a new hotel called the MaeKok River Village Resort. Although this is in an area further up north, this resort was much more pleasant, the food was excellent, flowers all around and brand new, well decorated.
