2009: Marian & Grant, Highton, Australia. Trip - Cambodia & Thailand

We loved "Cambodia" and Siem Reap!. The temples were very interesting and Ciao Travel arranged all our services, the beautiful hotel "FCC Anchor Hotel" a colonial atmosphere and beautiful pool area. We also enjoyed a private day tours to see the highlights, it was and it was excellent.

Northern Thailand was beautiful, and we stayed in both Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, in two excellent hotels. The Anatara Resort & Spa, Chiang Rai was amazing, beautiful swimming-pool and gardens. Whilst in Northern Thailand, Cindy recommended we experience only tow interesting private tours, one of the Golden Triangle, very interesting history and the other Cooking Class which was fun apart from the long drive!

Koh Tao located off Koh Samui, Thailand, was our relation highlight of the trip. Snorkling amongst the tropical fish and coral reefs was amazing. We recommend a day trip on a fishing boat for snorkling in Mango Bay with a stopover at Nangguan Island to see the parrot fish in the lagoon. We loved our hotel Chum Churee which had a rustic resort feel and private beach.

Trip Tips: Siem Reap - "Dead Fish Cafe" - Very Funky with ladders to upstairs tables. Traditional music, food excellent.
