Paddle Asia's Thai Guides are Sincerely Interested in Giving You the Best Travel Experience Possible

"Let me tell you how amazing my kayak trip was this past week. It was absolutely the highlight of my month spent in this amazing country. The weather was not always in our favour, but truly that could not have taken away from my overall experience. I think I almost enjoyed the rain and the storms as much as I did the sunshine. It was a perfect combination of all the elements.

As you well know, it is such a beautiful area, and being so close to it all in a kayak... I do not have words in my vocabulary that would do it enough justice.

I need to mention, however, that honestly the trip was nothing short of the best experience of my life entirely because of my two wonderful guides.

I have fallen in love with the Thai people during my short time here. As a woman traveling alone, I have had the pleasure of relying on the locals to help me along the way. But these two have surpassed all the others. I have never felt safer, and more cared for than with their hospitality. I have made two friends for life, thanks to you. I was never alone, in fact on many occasions I was lucky enough to have my own personal guide. I was encouraged to try new things and with every question I asked, the reply was always "whatever you want to do, we will do" I over indulged in their kindness, and they took it to the next level.

I have spent the last two days enjoying their company, on their own time. I have met their friends, seen where they live, how they spend their pastimes. They welcomed me into their worlds with open arms, and when they could not look out for me they arranged for their friends to do so.

Being the first time I have traveled outside of Canada everyone back home warned me to be so careful as a woman traveling alone. Do not trust anyone, they told me. But I knew I could trust these two, and I have never felt so safe. I will remember them for the angels that they are. Not only did they make my kayak adventure more than I could have dreamed it would be, they made my entire trip into something I will always cherish.

I can not say enough to express my gratitude towards them. I only wish I could bring them home with me to return the favour and show them my country.

It would be such a pleasure to see their reaction to my world. When I win the lottery this will be at the top of my list.

Please extend my appreciation and gratitude to them. Without them I would never have experienced Thailand is such a way.

I cannot say enough good things about Paddle Asia. Thank you so much!"
