Koh Samui 4WD Jeep Jungle Tour

Koh Samui, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The day started off on the wrong foot with our guide deviating from the planned day by taking part of our group for an elephant ride. We were left to kill 40 minutes with nothing to do while the others went on the ride. Not impressed! We then visited a couple of waterfalls which weren't too dramatic given that it was dry season. This was followed by a visit to see the mumified monk. So far not too impressive. The day improve dfrom that point as we ventured into the jungle and off the beaten track. We had the opportunity to see Koh Samui from all sides and had a delicious lunch at a remote restaurant in the jungle. Delicious! The vehicle is very basic - wear your hat and sunscreen as there's no shelter but made the day more exciting. Well worth the effort!

Elephant Trek, Rafting and Hilltribe Village Tour from Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Fantastic day out. Rafting was peaceful and provided an opportunity to sit back and really take in the surroundings. The elephants were beautiful and the ride was well worthwhile through the jungle. Not just a 15 minute treck - more like 1 1/2 hours! The Hilltribe experience was disappointing, really just a few stalls selling their wares and no real opportunity to see what life is like for them in their villages. All in all though a fantastic day!

Floating Markets and Rose Garden Cultural Center Day Tour from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

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

My Review
The floating markets are a must see. The drive to the floating markets was great and the food was fantastic . You could have just sat and watched the activity for hours! The Rose Garden Cultural Center was very touristy. Probably not the best place to see elephants, particularly if you plan to travel to other parts of Thailand. The cultural show was interesting but on reflection, I would have preferred to watch a show like that over dinner and a few drinks.
