Amazing Thailand Gardens & Cambodia’s Angkor Wat
(Including Chiang Mai Flower Festival)
January 28th – February 9th, 2011
 


January 27th was my arrival day…even though the tour started the next day with most coming in, it is a very good idea to come a day earlier just to rest up from the flight. I arrived at the airport when a couple others did from another flight so we arranged to me in the airport to go to the hotel together. I love Bangkok, it is such a green city, full of life and so much to see. The city is unique among its South-East Asian neighbors in the way its comforting modern marvels and the magic of ancient times became blended seamlessly as a result of 200 years of harmonic coexistence. Today, Bangkok has become the principal gateway and prime tourist attraction for both domestic and international travelers

Our hotel while in Bangkok was the Centara Grand, a 5 star with everything you would expect and more. Close to malls for shopping, in a nice area of the city, gorgeous views because the hotel itself doesn’t start until the 23rd floor where reception is. I had stayed here for TTM +2010 last November and wanted to come back, it was that nice. The rooms are large, with big bathrooms and quiet. The breakfast is wonderful and the view while you are eating is incredible.

This tour had us visiting two incredible countries and the memories will last a lifetime...we visited hill tribe villages where farmers are encouraged to use sustainable agricultural practices. We ate some of our meals in restaurants where staff come from different ethnic minority villages surrounding them and where we helped provide income for them as well as their families by eating there.
