We went on a tour which included an elephant ride, lunch, trek to a waterfall, white-water rafting, bamboo rafting and a visit to a hill tribe. The later was a little disappointing due to the commercialisation of the village but it reminded us to avoid of the more typical tourism which gives one very little in terms of a genuine feel for a culture. Meeting Philly and Mai on the other hand was wonderful. Both of them had a kind and gentle temperament and it seemed they had a lot of mutual respect for each other and their passengers!
Beats the office!
