- Highlights were overnight boat in Halong Bay, visiting Luang Prabang and cycle trip in Chiang Mai. But compared to other Explore trips I have been on (this was my seventh) having three different guides - one in each country - was a definite disadvantage. Our third and last guide, Ning in Thailand, was outstanding and much better than the other two guides. Also I did not enjoy the overnight train trip from Chiang Mai to Bangkok.
