SE Asia with Green Papaya

This item appears on page 32 of the February 2012 issue.

My husband, John, and I found Green Papaya Travel (21B Lo Duc St., Hai Ba Trung Dist., Hanoi City, Vietnam; phone +84 391 323 4507) in ITN’s The MART classifieds and would recommend them to anyone who wants to see Southeast Asia. Green Papaya was great. We communicated by e-mail and they made all the arrangements (except international flights) for our 17-day trip to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, Sept. 23-Oct. 11, 2011. We asked for, at least, three-star hotels, a car with air-conditioning, a driver and English-speaking guides. We wanted to go by car from Danang to Hanoi (466 miles), as we enjoy seeing the countryside. For both of us, the total cost was $5,300, excluding international airfare from/to the US. All other airfare was included, as were airport pickup in Saigon, all entry fees to museums, etc., all breakfasts and lunches and four dinners. We had a memorable trip, with excellent food and service. PEG AMMON Burlington, KY
