Places of Interest

The lure of Thailand’s beaches is hard to resist – sloping curves of white sand, cobalt blue seas and swaying palm trees. But there’s more: trekking in the North is a wonderful way to see elephants, lush scenery and local tribes people, By contrast, Bangkok is a whirlwind of activities – from temple tours, vibrant markets and gourmet restaurants.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
