We really enjoyed our 2-night stay at the Ta Lai Long House. Although were were in the rainy season, we were lucky to have no rain in the mornings to enjoy our hike into the forest, and kayaking on the lake. The best part of the hike was the visit to a bat cave and the walk along a stream. Also, getting to know how leeches look like without being beaten (because we were given a good gear with protection) was interesting.
George, Matt and their team were both professional and friendly. They shared with us the story of good cause behind the Ta Lai project - making us feel happy that we were making some contribution while having fun. They also shared with us their knowledge of the plants and animals in the forest - helping us learn new things. They told us about their personal lives and dreams, and even sang for us while waiting for the rain to stop.
We just got back from our trip, and are already planning our next trip when dry season comes.
