Trip of a lifetime
As a first time traveler to SE Asia, it was a little bit overwhelming planning my trip and adventures- Where to start? What to do? How can I get off the tourist path? How can I have the most fun? How can I see the most beautiful nature? Who can I trust? How can I make it back in one piece? If you are reading this review and have these same questions, here is my experience with Thang and Frontier Travel. First off, the planning phase was very straightforward. Frontier held up every end of their promises and guarantees. Nothing was shady at all.They were easy to communicate with and accessible. One suggestion is to bring your own gear. They have all the gear you would need, but I think it would be a good idea to bring your own to ensure comfortability. I did not bring my own (in order to travel lightly) and everything was ok except for the boots. I had to ride in boots that were way too small. Not the best, but nothing could take away from the experience I had. The trip was everything I had hoped for and more. As a businessman and owner of Frontier, Thang is legit. He wants you to have the adventure of a lifetime. On a personal level and as the guide for our 6 day motorbike tour of the North-Central mountains, Thang became a best friend for life. He is so patient and kind, yet efficient and problem-solving. Any needs that I had were met gracefully and with love. He took me to places I could have never dreamed of- remote villages that I would have never been able to see without his guidance, views that are truly indescribable, into people's homes for food and green tea...This trip was truly the best thing I have ever done in my life. The ride and the natural beauty itself would have been enough to give this declaration, but what put this trip over the top was Thang. I can't emphasize how patient and knowledgeable he is. This trip 6 days in the north central mountains on a 250cc motorcycle) isn't for someone who is looking for a "chill-out", "relaxing" touristy getaway. It is a breathtaking adventure. I came into the trip with a beginners level of motorbike skill. I am athletic and in good shape and the ride challenged me but rewarded me with the experience of a lifetime and I came out of it as a much more advanced rider, thanks to Thang. I recommend this trip for anyone who seeks adventure, SPECTACULAR natural beauty and growth. This trip genuinely changed my life. Cheers.
