The local market was certainly different from anything back home. Very authentic. The lunch at the farm house from the purchases that our guide made at the market was fantastic and the owner of the farm was such a pleasant and loving woman. The waterfalls walk was a challenge for some in the group to climb back up the many stairs, but certainly was a beautiful falls. The highlight of the day was certainly the elephants. It was great fun to feed them and they loved to be fed right into their tonques. Once on the elephants you go about 10 minutes through jungle, another five or ten through a river and the best part is when the guide gets you to get on their neck and out of the seat to take your picture and then he leaves and just runs around taking your picture as the elephant picks its own way through the jungle. Many great pictures and such a great time!
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The monkeys were the highlight for us. We bought food and they climbed on our shoulders. Many great pictures and they are very gentle. The seafood dinner was good, but not great. The fireflies were a diappointment. I am not sure if it was the moon cycle or if it was because it was raining lightly, but the fireflies were not out in force. Kinda like seeing Christmas trees lite up on shore. We had a friend do this same tour a few days later and they said that it was fantastic. So guess our timing was off.
It was freezing cold when we did the tour, around -3 degees celcius, with a brisk wind. Despite this our group of seven had a wonderful time on the tour thanks to our wonderful guide Conner. On the hop on, hop off bus tour we were given history lessons on several of the sights, but nothing really sunk in too deeply, as it seemed we were being told facts in school. Conners history lesson atop the second level of the tower was so entertaining that I feel that I will always remember much of it.
Fantastic tour to skip the lines and great job by Conner. I am so glad that I paid for this, as it made not only my eiffel tower experience so much more enjoyable, but also the rest of my trip in Paris thanks to listening to much of the advice Conner gave on what to do!!
