Phnom Penh, Cambodia
This is not a very exciting tour although it depends on what you are after. You visit a rural house who are in silk weaving near the city Phnom Penh traveling for an hour through the dusty roads. Please carry masks which are easily purchased in the city. The hosts were quite nice in explaining the silk weaving process starting from the worm! And you can even try your hand at weaving. The sunset cruise back to the city was nothing mention worthy and we were unlucky too as it was cloudy so no sunset for us.
Hong Kong, Hong Kong
This is a good tour if you are constrained for time although Having done this tour I would strongly recommend staying a day in Macau to soak in the many activities going on in the city particularly the nightlife. Our guide was a matter of fact guy and made it very clear at the outset that it is neither a gambling nor a shopping tour and we literally spent 10 mins in a casino and 5 mins for some quick purchase of souvenirs. The tour was very informative otherwise on Macau and the various customs including Feng shui. The boat ride to and from hongkong was pleasant. One grievance I have personally was that while booking the tour claims to have hotel pick up from city. However, in reality there are only a few hotels they offer this service. I was staying in hongkong SOHO area which is a business district but I was asked to travel quite a distance to causeway bay to another hotel in the early morning. So an additional expense of over HK$100 for both ways over and above a pretty expensive trip.
Excellent, the driver was knowledgeable and apart from the main attraction they took us to a maaru park where my kid interacted with almost all the Australian aboriginal animals. feeding the kangaroos was great. As for the little penguin it's a wonderful sight and best viewed from the premium locations. So definitely upgrade to penguin plus its worth the extra bucks.
Jenolan caves was wonderful and for me a must see. It is one of the world heritage site. The driver was excellent and very helpful. However this is not. Blue mountain trip so bit misleading. They show the 3 SISTER rocks from a distance but unfortunately it was covered in deep fog so could not see anything. I think we should have spent more time at the caves by skipping the blue mountain bit.
