Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One of the most breathtaking experiences I have at Angkor Wat is watching the sunrise over the temple complex. The misty jungle and the ancient ruins create a truly magical atmosphere as the first light of day illuminates the temples. I woke up before the crack of dawn and make my own way to the temples on the tuktuk. Buying a coffee upon arrival and I was rushed to find myself the best viewpoint for watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat.

As I waited for the sun to rise, it was my opportunity to admire the intricate carvings and bas-reliefs that adorn the temples. The early morning light casted a warm glow on the stone, highlighting the intricate details of the temples' architecture. As the sun rose, the sky transformed into a palette of oranges, pinks, and purples, creating a truly mesmerizing sight. The temples were bathed in a warm light, giving them a magical and otherworldly appearance."

la nostra avventura alle Filippine non è stato solo un viaggio ma qualcosa di più' importante per noi, ossia la nostra luna di miele.
L'agenzia grazie all'aiuto di Thao, ci organizzato il nostro itinerario in tutte le giornate permettendoci di visitare luoghi ma anche di svolgere delle attività ricreative che ci hanno fatto conoscere meglio e godere alcuni posti. Tutti i giorni siamo stati seguiti per lo svolgimento delle attività da Adam che oltre ad informarsi sullo svolgimento delle attività ci ha aiutato in diverse situazioni di contatto con le agenzie locali o risolvendo dei problemi che sono presentati.
Grazie a loro il nostro viaggio è stato un'esperienza indimenticabile

Se tornassimo indietro l'unico aspetto che migliorerei è la qualità delle strutture in cui abbiamo dormito, specialmente nei primi giorni, sicuramente in questi paese è molto più' saggio non scendere mai sotto i 4 stelle. Mentre all'agenzia Mango Tiger suggerisco di porre maggiore attenzione alla selezione delle agenzie locali e nel fornire loro le linee guida su come loro vorrebbero fosse realizzato il servizio.

Although the hotel is modern and the pool very nice it wasn't really well managed. There was a smell of sewage due to the fact that they discharge directly into the sea and in the rooms there was a smell of humidity that could certainly not be eliminated due to the lack of maintenance of the ventilation systems. If it were in another country it would be closed instantly, for further details I suggest reading the many reviews on Google

From the moment I requested information for our trip to Thailand, Thao knew exactly what we were looking for. Our entire itinerary was done within a week. Thao was always on top of everything and she would always get back to you as soon as you would send her a note or a question. We were so impressed with her service.
As soon as we landed in Thailand, we had a dedicated team in case we ran into any issues or had any questions. Thank you Adam, Moruecha, and Orn for taking care of us! You were always on top of your game.

I never write reviews, but I couldn't pass on the opportunity to write this one. My family just returned from an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime, trip to the Philippines! There were 7 of us total (my husband and me, our 4 teenage kids - who had never been to the Philippines, and my mom - who was born and raised there but has been living in the U.S. for the past 51 years). Thao was incredible! From the moment we started planning, I was impressed by her prompt and articulate communication skills. We spent a lot of time tweaking the itinerary, and she was always very receptive to my change requests, immensely patient with all of my questions, and so timely with her responses. She was professional, attentive, and enthusiastic, and I could tell that she was truly engaged in the process. I always felt like our trip and my family were special to her. Once our trip began, Thao remained involved and engaged with us through WhatsApp. If we had questions or concerns, she was there for us. She was responsive and accommodating - even through a couple of minor, unforseen issues, and we were always confident in her "presence" and support. She was readily available to us throughout our entire trip. I can't say enough good things about her! We would use Thao and kimkim again in a heartbeat!!
