Yes the trip was good - thankyou for asking.
The Emotion was excellent and my girlfriend was able to come on the boat
with me to go diving. She went kayaking instead, so that worked really
The last day a storm threatned and we were taken to a hotel. This did
not work well as they wanted us to pay for dinner. It eventually got
sorted but took a long time and we were very hungry. I also ended up a
bit stressed that no one seemed to believe that we were on an all
exclusive trip and they were not prepared to do anything until they had
checked with the Emotion. As everyone there had gone home this was a big
problem. In the end we decided to just catch a taxi into the town and
eat there. But as we were leaving we were asked to come back as they had
eventually found out that we were meant to be on full board.
I will be back in VN in September - this time in Saigon. I would
definitely like to do something interesting there. And also see a local
football match if possible.
Hi Miss Nguyen,
Thank you for your email. My wife and I had a lovely time in Vietnam,
Laos and Cambodia. It was our first visit to Laos and Cambodia but we
have been to Vietnam many times. You organized our booking for the
Ancient House in Hoi An. We have stayed there before and liked it, but
when I inquired on-line their rates seemed to have shot up. It was my
daughter-in-law's suggestion to book through you, and your price was
better. I thought you handled the whole transaction very professionally,
with clear and precise instructions about how to make the money
transfer. I shall be happy to book through you in the future and to
recommend you to my friends.
Dear Mrs. Nguen,
We were very satisfied with our half day tour to My Son. Driver and tour
guide were on time and everything went according to plan. We have no
comments. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family who
go to Vietnam!
Xin Chao Mrs
Than Mai .. Thanks for a very nice arranged program and all the
experience .. I send for you now some information on my trip
Phnom Penh Anise Hotel - The hotel quite small and old, but the staff
very friendly and good service. Location quite reasonable to walk around
and everything not so far. The price a bit expensive for this hotel,
because room quite small and old, maybe more about US$ 35 would be
reasonable, but the service and staff quite good. I see a few other
hotels nearby the river, little better location near to the shops and
restaurants, around the same price of US$45 so I might change if go
Siem Reap Sonalong Boutique - Very nice hotel, beautiful scenery and big
room with balcony. The price of this same Anise but more new and with
big garden and swimming pool. The hotel is quite new and clean and
friendly and good service staff. The manager of hotel always available
to meet the guests and assit to check in. Location a bit far to walk to
main road but tuk tuk available at the door. I might stay this hotel
again if I visit Siem Reap but again I see other hotels for same price
close to shops and coffee shops.
Phnom Penh Miss Nara - Very friendly guide with good information and
good english. Always take good care of me and show me around to enjoy
the programs and give me a lot of information about everything we see.
In the last day, invite me with her friend to restaurant for coffee and
ice cream and dont let me pay.
Siem Reap Mr Souvan - Very friendly guide, little bit ok english but
have a lot of knowledge and take good care of me also.
In both place, drivers also very friendly and all the programs in both
place, have a very good time together, so that we are more like friends
not tourist and guide.
Everything well arranged with good timings and lot of time to walk
around and relax. Lot of cold water and cold towel available all the
day, and restaurants for lunch very nice and local to try Cambodian
foods and meet local people. I learn also a few words in Cambodian that
I try to talk and make a lot of new friends. Nearby hotel in Phnom Penh,
I make friend with motorbike taxi who take me around after the program
just to drive and see the local sights for only US$ 2 or US$ 3. In Siem
Reap one time the car breakdown after the 1hr foot massage program but I
enjoy to sit and talk with the local people, and waiting till the car
ready to go.
Overall I have no complaint at all for anything and enjoy everything a
lot. I am sure I need to go back to Cambodia to visit some other places
so we will discuss about that after a while. I plan to visit during late
Only we had a little confusion about the schedule because I think book 5
nights in Phnom Penh and 5 nights in Sieam Reap, so when I book hotel in
Sieam Reap is from 4th May but from your side 3rd May. But is ok because
the hotel have no problem to arrange me arrive 1 day early, after I tell
to the guide if not available I can sleep one night in the temple with
Thank you very much for all the booking Mrs Than Mai, really I enjoy it
all a lot with no problem at all.
Hello Thu Huong, friends and family:
Well, after many hours of careful editing, Mike has created four
masterpieces – if I may be so bold as to brag. The bad news – we didn’t
make it as “bite sized” as we’d hoped. There was just too much amazing
stuff to share (and several people already commented they couldn’t wait
to see more!). The good news is we broke it into four pieces so you can
view at your leisure. We also put some music with it to enhance your
viewing pleasure and basically made each a video with short timing for
The way to see the photos is to go to Vimeo -
http://www.vimeo.com/user7104209/videos (you can also just go
to www.vimeo.com and search on things like “Lori and Mike’s Vietnam
vacation” or “Mike Mulligan Vietnam” and you’ll find them)
You’ll see there are 4 videos – the first two tell the story of the
trip, the others let Mike expand on his artistic side. The suggested
1. Lori and Mike’s Vietnam Vacation – The South (12 minutes of photos)
2. Lori and Mike’s Vietnam Vacation – The North (15 minutes)
3. Through Mike’s Eye (6 minutes) – for those of you who want to see
more great photos
4. Echoes of War (6 minutes) – for those of you who are interested in
the war history (and like Pink Floyd)
Depending on the speed of your internet connection, you may need to
allow time for it to buffer, unless you turn HD off (works fine on ours
with no buffering but no guarantees). We suggest you have the volume on
so you can enjoy the music (carefully selected!). The four little arrows
on the lower right corner let you go to full screen. We found the
quality to be OK on full screen if it’s HD but not so good if you turn
it off (so basically, look at them in the small view if you turn HD
For those of you who like to travel, I think you will want to buy a
ticket to Vietnam as soon as you can! If you want to go, I know just the
person to help you plan your trip.
It’s been a labor of love (bordering on obsession) for Mike, and even
though I was there and saw these sights, I’m amazed at what he has
created. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as we enjoyed the trip.
Lori and Mike
Dear Ms Dinh Thao,
sorry for the much delayed response. It's caused by our round the world
trip. We mostly do not have internet access while travelling currently
Here my feedback:
- hotels and all services have been excellent
- Mekong river trip was very special and satisfying. Food was always
excellent, but too much for senior people like us.
- Beach resort Bamboo Village was very good
- transport was always on time and all drivers did a very good job
- both the tour guides did not meet our level of expectation. I assume
it was mainly a language skill level problem.
- if friends approach us we will definitely give them your contact data
Dear Ms. NGUYEN,
Thanks you for your email.
We enjoyed our trip to Halong Bay Tour.
Everything was all right and our guide perfect.
We were very pleased to have a private very large boat for us.
The meal was quite good but the bay view was splendid.
The boring thing was the long road from Hanoi to Halong Bay.
Thanks for everything.
Frédéric de BAETS

Dear Ms Dinh Thao,
