Originally, I was anxious about how to arrange a tour for my old parents, ‘cause I cannot totally understand what they think about in their ages, even sometimes they don’t tell us young guys about what they really need. I checked UME travel and gave a call to a trip advisor named Alex about this. I asked him for help. We talked and amended for over a week, we got a perfect trip upgraded from this itinerary. I told them about this upcoming trip, they were surprised and happy! On the day we started, everything is good. Good weather, on-time flight, and on-time picking up by UME guides and drivers! We have visited Bangkok and other cities (sorry I can’t spell or read them accurately, that’s difficult for me). They are amazed at the temples seems all gold in Bangkok, looks so beautiful! Then we visited the “ruins” actually it is very old city kept historical buildings, the typical elephant park. And we loved the silent beach where we finished our trip. This is a relaxing tour for my parents with UME Travel!! Friendly guide kept company with us all the time and he interpret everything we doubt.
We are 55-75 years old, yeah a group. Oh Im the guys 55-year-old. Lol. From the start to end of this trip, I was in charge of it. Since I loved travelling around the world, my peers trust me completely! One of us was tangled with heart disease, I especially told him to carry the specific medicine. Fortunately, he feels good during our whole trip! And thanks Alieen, she remind me of many need-to-be-noticed. Good job! The Ayutthaya city is what I loved the most, since I have been there before and was amazed by its beauty of history and culture!! You will enjoy not only the sunrise and sunset, also the atmosphere around there, you will feel oh how great the Kings and people in the past they did make such mysterious and astonishing work! They like it as I did! That’s really really good feel!!
I have the tour with my parents and grandfather. Although it is a tour for senior,however I was happy with them! We have seen the elephant in one Elephant Park; this is my first time to close the huge animals. And in a flower farm, there are orchid and butterfly full of the farm, which makes us relaxed and happy!!
This tour for my grandfather’s birthday! He is 80 year-old but still strong and heath. He walked across the Elephant Park and ancient city with us, tired but still in good condition. Every time, when I saw my grandfather take part in the activities that belongs to young groups, I have a sense of warm. He will stay with us forever! Thanks UME travel providing so great trip that we all are satisfied! They even understand what we need. We love the food, scenic and beach. Yeah, the beach is what we love the most. Facing a extended beach, back to the stretched tropical rain forest, you will be attracted by the longest charming sights there. Most westerners here like us. With highly harmony and silent, this Khao Lak became the Real Heaven for most travelers who are sick of noisy and boring city. and the hotel we stay is so convenient for enjoy sunsets, especially from the view of ocean, that’s really exciting, yeah, amazing pictures, suitable for the visitors like taking photograph, don’t forget to bring a high quality camera. If you are rich enough, you will find a luxury hotel here, where maybe you will get more cherishing image. Thanks to the white sand and long chair, we spent our leisure times here and taste some food for several days. It is a Perfect beach!!
