Mr. David Upp - Canada
Impression: Variety of transportation on my tour
Thank you for the lovely red silk cloth/table-runner/bed-adorner!
I enjoyed my tour of Indochina *very much*. Some of my favorite highlights. Included an evening theatre presentation at the National Museum in Phnom Penh (the troupe enacted for us the traditional rituals at birth, death, marriage, healing, etc.), the amazing karst islands of Ha Long Bay & Krabi, Loy Krathong in Bangkok & Chiang Mai, the grand tapestry of religious buildings & practices (all up & down the Mekong River region) and, of course, the ancient Khmer temples of the Siem Reap area. Things went smoothly, the only problem was Siem Reap to Phnom Penh (the ox-cart trip had to be re-scheduled & that made things very rushed for Samphor in the capital. One of your best ideas was to build in a variety of transportation on my tour: tuk-tuk to ox-cart, bicycle to bamboo-train, junk to motor-boat to narrow canoes! That kept things fresh. I also had friends & contacts to meet across the region which added another dimension for me. The guides were friendly & knowledgeable, especially Mr. Sophan; the drivers were safe & efficient.
I will definitely recommend you and Water Puppet Tours to my friends/acquaintances to mention Vietnam.
