This was our 4th trip with Inside Asia / Japan...
Feedback after travelling
You provide the kind of 'independent' travel we want. The consultants are very knowledgeable, helpful and available. It's good to deal with the same person throughout the process. The accommodation is always excellent as are the itineraries, travel arrangements and suggested activities.
We were given bottles of water every time we got in the transport. We did actually drink them (sorry) but we did take also take our metal drinks bottles supplied by Inside Asia on a previous trip. Most of the hotels continue (like in the UK) to change towels even if we hung them up. A recycling bin in hotel rooms would also be good.
The food was great, especially our experience in the Red Garden Food Paradise in Georgetown. The breakfasts in the Liu Men hotel in Malacca were also superb. But really there's a huge variety of excellent food to be sampled in every place we visited. All the included experiences were great but in addition we would say that a visit to the Kek Lok Si temple and the nearby Penang Hill were essential. We were lucky that our guide from the morning was able to take us here as you'd need a taxi and the temple particularly is vast and complicated! Also in Georgetown the Pinang Peranakan Museum was superb with free guided tours at certain times.
