BANGKOK TO PHUKET

This was my first time overseas & even with 30 hours of travel time, coming from Houston, I would go back to Thailand with Affordable World over and over again! Thailand is such a beautiful country with so much to offer! Not to mention, our tour guide, Oh, was the best ever! She was very informative and super helpful the entire time!! Breathtaking beaches, floating markets, gorgeous temples, monkeys, elephants, and so much more!

BANGKOK TO PHUKET

Disregard everything you read from other sites about the airline and Affordable World. Affordable World definitely prepares you for everything, just make sure you read what is provided if not it is okay because Alice kept my group of 6 on track from the time she picked us up from the airport until we departed at the airport. Our group flew China Eastern - the ride is long so get over that but the seats are comfortable enough. The food ...

BANGKOK TO PHUKET

A positive review is all I'd wish to give because Thailand was really pretty and a lot of fun. Our tour guide was amazing, and it was feeling like I must have bought a personal tour. So, that was a win win. Also Alice and Patty our guides had a beautiful personality and an openness that made me feel safe through out the entire trip. People in this country make money from our tourist dollars, but it was there culture ...

Hello All, I'm planning a trip to Thailand in September...I was told this is rainy season. Has anyone traveled in September, if so how is the weather? Thank you

By MASON MARKEDIA

BANGKOK TO PHUKET

First, let me state that Thailand is a beautiful country with the most amazing and sweet people. The itinerary was jam-packed with things to do and places to see and Sharkie, our tour guide, went above and beyond to ensure that our group of almost 40 people were happy in every aspect. The hotels that my husband and I stayed in were beautiful, the food was inexpensive and delicious (literally 2-3 US dollars). I would 100% recommend this tour and ...

BANGKOK TO PHUKET

We did the 10 day Bangkok and Phuket tour in December and it was great! We booked through Groupon and we were so impressed with everything. The transportation was nice, the hotels were great - clean, good WiFi connection, great food and amenities. Our tour guide, Oh, was the best. She went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time and everything we needed including booking extra transportation and tours/events. The elephant sanctuary is a must. It ...

The hotels were pretty luxurious, the meals were very good, everything was schedule and on time always so we we saw everything that they offered. Our tour guides were exceptional, always willing to help. They recommendations were on point everytime. Plus everyone in the group was ...

First time using Affordable World and I will definitely use them again! We got more than we expected. The hotel accommodations in Bangkok and Phuket were upscale, great locations and clean. The meals that were included were buffet style and provided much variety, the excursions were once in a lifetime experiences I'll never forget and enjoyable. I absolutely loved our tour guides, Kitty and Panda. They were both extremely knowledgable, friendly and accommodating. I'm telling everyone I know about ...

Easy to understand and follow. He spared nothing to give us what we wanted, a great ...

BANGKOK TO PHUKET

What an amazing and inexpensive trip! Audi was our guide and it was like having our own personal assistant. We didn't have to think about anything, just show up in the lobby of the hotel bringing what he told us we would need, and off we went! We saw and did everything! Elephant rides, floating market, monkeys, bamboo river ride, temples, buddhas etc. Then met in lobby once again and off we were to Phuket. Again we didn't have to ...

BANGKOK TO PHUKET

Overall my experience with this package and Affordable World was positive! I would recommend anyone doing one of their packages thoroughly review the excursions and hotels offered. Purchased through Groupon for $1999/pp before optional tours. Hotels: Both Pullman G Hotel and Novatel Kamala Beach were fantastic, Pullman had an amazing breakfast spread with variety every morning and was very comfortable. The location was on Silom road and was a great location from the sky train which took you around the city, ...

I took this trip in October 2016 with my husband and we had an amazing time! This was my first time going on a guided trip and my first time going with Affordable World. Our guide, P.A. went above and beyond my expectations of a guide. He was extremely knowledgeable, organized, funny and had our best interest in mind the whole time. He really cared about our experience and did everything he could to make sure we were always having a ...

This trip was amazing, we had a really great guide. Her name is Panda, she was the best. Very helpful, informative and always made sure everyone got to see what they wanted to see. Most of the people in our group were 20-35 years old and we made really great friends. The hotels were all very nice and activities were fun. In Bangkok the best activity we did was the elephant, floating marketing and bamboo rafting day, the rest were ...

Wow! My boyfriend & I took this trip April 26- May 6, 2016 & we had an AMAZING time! I can't believe how much was packed into the trip & what a great value it was! Hats off to Affordable World for putting together such a fabulous trip! Our guides (Sharkey & P.A.) were top-notch: informative, gracious, fun & funny with wonderful customer service skills. They definitely went above and beyond expectations which made the trip effortless & enjoyable. All ...

By CHERYL CARLSON

BANGKOK TO PHUKET

Overall I think we got what we paid for. It was a reasonably cheap expense for a reasonably weak service. Upon arrival, myself and my travel partner were overbooked for our initially selected tour guide in Bangkok, so we were added to another group led by Sharky, who did a great job. However, this added to the confusion when we left for Phuket because while we were handed off to a local tour guide, it was very confusing for everyone ...
