- The tour itself is very complete and the only thing I might change would be the 2 nights stay in Vientiane.
After such a relaxing and beautiful stay in the Mekong cruise and Luang Prabang, it comes as rather disappointing. The city doesn't seem to have a lot to do during those 2 days - the tour guide, here, was also a bit basic.
Considering the high temperatures in this part of the globe, it would be nice to have more hotels with a swimming pool. For instance, Bangkok hotel is super but a waste on the way back as nobody had the time to enjoy it!
I found Chiang Rai hotel very poor - the windows would not close entirely allowing mosquitos and heat to come inside the room.
The itinerary is rather ambitious to do everything in Siem Reap. Together with 40ºC temperature and the option to take the helicopter flight, it becomes very exhausting.
The highlight was the Mekong cruise and Luang Prabang - it came as a surprise and a very relaxing experience. Angkor Wat also but, let us say, that is was already expected.
The tour leader - Pok - was outstanding. He was very careful and attentive to everything happening. He provided all the opportunities to let the group try food, go shopping or enjoy all experiences with major satisfaction and safety.
