China was so great and such a super bargain I went again 2 yrs later. Friendly Planet is the best way to travel especially if on a budget and want to get the most for the $. They do take care of you and traveling alone is not a problem. ..In fact meeting new friends is a plus. Thanks F. P. for the lovely experiences!

I was a little unsure about booking a vacation with a bunch of strangers worried that I might be stuck with a group of people with whom I had no common interests or who wouldn't be interesting...wow was I ever wrong. The people I was with were all like old friends and we had a fantastic time in our travels through Thailand. Many of the people I was with will surely be lifelong friends. Friendly Planet did a great job of designing the trip and our guide Lhing did an incredible job of making sure we all got to see the things we wanted to see. I can’t say enough good things about the trip and I will definitely be booking more trips with Friendly Planet hopefully with some of the people from this trip.
