Dear Inge, 


On behalf of everyone at Gecko Villa, we just wanted to write to wish you every continued success with Sea to See Travel.  For us, it is always encouraging to meet selective travel agents who place a premium on meaningful travel experiences that promote cultural interaction and awareness. Ideals are one thing, but when we see the smile that lights up a child's face upon receiving a  gift at a village school, or the laughter of a rice farmer in a forgotten corner of Thailand as a visitor tries to control a water buffalo, we know the experience is one that will make a difference. A difference in the life of the local, but also in that of the visitor.


You will recall that the school children and head teacher at our local village school asked us to write to thank you following your visit to the school and your very kind donation of over 100kg of useful supplies and gifts. This was a complete windfall for them, and we are only too aware of the logistics that were required for you to make that possible. As we said at the time, "...your stay reinvigorated us & reinforced our belief that responsible tourism is a force for good. We cannot thank you enough."


With best wishes to you and your team, 


Bongkot, on behalf of everyone at Gecko Villa and of the pupils at Nam Thieng School


 TOGETHER, we will explore the world, GIVE BACK, make a difference, and CREATE LASTING IMPRESSIONS each step of the way.
