- A fascinating and very varied trip. There were many highlights, such as the amazing Angkor temples, the laid- back atmosphere of Luang Prabang, cruising down the Mekong river...there were so many of them. The tour leader (Pok) was absolutely first rate: I've been on 7 Explore trips now, and all the leaders were good, but Pok was by far the best.
A suggestion: the Cambodian Living Arts dance show at the Phnom Penh National Museum was fantastic, and we think everyone would enjoy it. So we think it should be part of the itinerary. The only place we visited that we weren't very impressed with was the Opium Museum: we'd suggest giving that a miss.
Our trip was booked up months in advance, yet other travellers who'd booked later were put on a direct flight from London to Bangkok, whereas we had a 3 hour change-over in Dubai. This made for a much longer travelling time which we feel could have been avoided.
Overall, a brilliant trip which we highly recommend.
