I had a totally great 2-day hiking tour with homestay in a village near a river. The people were very friendly and open to me. My guide Keo was the best what I ever had. Thanks to him and the lady in the office 👍

The Akha experience was very good overall. Although, it was more like seeing the Akha life rather than experiencing it. The villagers were very shy which inhibited genuine interaction. Even the children seemed very wary of the strange visitors from far away. It was quite...More
