    I have a lot to say, but not enough characters. Basically, they lost our reservation, put us in a dorm room where the bathroom was infested with cockroaches. Then moved us the next morning to a private double mattress on the floor with no bed frame and only one outlet. . A few days later, I got an email from "travel asia blue" saying we never showed up for our reso and they wanted to fully charge my card. Luckily, my card was cancelled after it was pickpocketed in Cambodia. Go ANYWHERE else!
