We Love the Thai Culture! Family Review From Thailand
The Shaedel Family came to us hoping to find a custom trip to Thailand for 2 birthdays, Christmas, and New Years - big shoes to fill! Luckily, Thailand is the place to go if you need a destination to satisfy everyone - especially 3 young ones aged 8, 6, and 6!Here's what the Schaedel Family said when asked why they decided to travel with Wildland:"Initially, our interest was drawn by your creative itinerary and reputation in respected publications like NG traveler. What made me book through you was the thoughtful, responsive and creative effort put forth by Kelsey. She is a gem and made the trip special. I have never before used a travel agent outside of the 'high street' variety and never thought I would but the experience we had was incredible."The Schaedel's started their trip in the south with some relaxation time at Koh Yao Noi. From there, they stepped...

Grand_Palace_Panorama1
See what the Whorton family has to say about their 12 day Thailand Family Adventure. From elephants to biking to kayaking and beyond Thailand had a little bit of everything for every member of the Whorton family!What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why?Loved Chiang Mai and Railay Beach - very different but each had amazing things to offer. I got my "adventure" in Chiang Mai and my husband got his "beach vacation" down at Railay. Loved the Elephant experience (Patara) in Chiang Mai. An amazing experience and such a well run, caring organization. We learned a lot too! Really liked the bike tour to get to see some parts of true "Thai Living" - actual homes, farms, etc. So peaceful! Also loved kayaking in Railay and we had a lot of fun rock climbing too!Please comment on your local guides:Both women were very different but both great guides. Both...

Myanmar is spectacular!

Myanmar is spectacular!
A group of 6 intrepid travelers just traveled through Myanmar together and had a blast! Here's Judy to tell us a little bit about it:"We loved our trip. Myanmar is a wonderful place to visit. The people are kind, inquisitive, helpful and beautiful. The food is amazing. The country is spectacular. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to discover a country unspoiled by tourists. But that will only last a couple of more years, so get there quickly!"On accommodations:"I loved the Strand - I've stayed at Raffles in Singapore a couple of times, and this was definitely reminiscent. The hotel in Kalaw was lovely, with wonderful food. We had a Burmese meal the first night and a western meal the second. The western food suffered in comparison!"Favorite moments:"I think my favorite thing was the breakfast in the local tea shop. That was so much fun - to see how the...
