Honestly I joined Ultimate Thailand on a bit of a whim, having worked in Boston for awhile and wanting a break to really see what else is out there. I made the right choice. Things started off right with a personal sign and punctual pick up at the airport and the momentum kept on moving. My guide, Nikki from Liverpool!! was an absolute blast, very knowledgeable and incredibly outgoing. I felt immediately comfortable with the group, the welcome dinner and first night out being a terrific icebreaker for a my solo travels. I've since traveled to Koh Tao with members of my group and we are planning further adventures. The highlight for me was Khao Sok National Park, the second stop after Bangkok. Bangkok, Koh Phi Phi and Koh Phangan are great, the hustle, bustle and energy comparable to a weekend blitz of New York but I much preferred being out of the city and seeing the Asiatic landscapes of the National Parks (Khao Sok and Maya Bay). Moments and days like those are the reason I travel and thanks to Ultimate Thailand I've made friends to keep the good times rolling!!!!
