Sigh! It's been nearly 2 months back home in sunny Sydney! Does anyone really ever recover from going overseas? I think not... I certainly haven't been the same since my first well over 4 years ago. So, I'm putting in a request to make this a full-time occupation...
As a matter of fact, I enjoyed my GAP Adventures tour so much, I filled in their online application to become one of their travelling minions. Creating wanderlust comes as naturally to me as breathing, so I'd love to keep meeting people, having blind massages, eating exotic fruits - all that!
The Roam Cambodia tour I did continued through Vietnam, even though I left in Saigon to explore more of Thailand's islands. It was a nice change for me to have someone organise accommodation, transport, a few meals, etc... usually I'm the one who does all the research along the way.
And as a single traveller, I threw myself into conversation with people (otherwise it was going to be a pretty lonely tour), and that was awesome. A lot of English, which reminded me of living in London. As it so happens, two people I met... well, we hang out regularly here in Sydney drinking beer and complaining about food prices in comparison to Cambodia!
As for the content.. I feel like I wanted more time at Angkor Wat (but then I got food poisoning, so the 2nd day would've sucked)... only because the sunset was pretty underwhelming just going from a dark blue overcast to a light gray overcast. But the temples are pretty awe-inspiring in their own right...
Prices are on their website, but there's usually a local payment that you have to give them at the beginning of the tour as well. I guess your own experience will be unique in itself regardless of what I have to say.. but when you went out as a gorup to a restaurant, they sit you all together and give you your bill depending on where you were sitting. I'd prefer to buy my drinks at the bar, and stand around to mingle.. not be forced to stay seated at a table...
But what can you do... you learn not to sweat the small stuff because hello! you're in freaking Asia man!!!
If I had an Angkor, Chang or Saigon beer in my hands right about now, I'd call a cheers to STA Travel who took me there, and to GAP Adventures who took me around...
