This was an adventure that allowed us to experience most of the country of Thailand. People who enjoy outdoor activities and learning in general would like this trip. The bathrooms were an inconvenience at times since we had never been exposed to squat toilets. I would highly recommend that you BYOTP. (Yes, Toilet Paper.) Although this was challenging at times, I would not let it be a deal breaker and am definitely glad we went. The people in Thailand are very and appreciative. Although driving in Thailand seems stressful at times, we did not see any accidents and the people do not even blow their horns when others cut in, so in a way there was civility in the chaotic driving. So if you would like to see elephants, water buffalo and more when hiking or kayaking, gorgeous scenery with spectacular waterfalls while biking, learn about a new culture, just go for it.
