We went with Hong Thai to South Korea in Mar 04. Then, it was the cheapest and best valued package around. The food, esp. BBQ pork was good. We enjoyed ourselves most in Jeju Island, we strongly encourage you include it in your itinerary.
My PIL and their friends went with Hong Thai to Taiwan in July 05. They selected Hong Thai because of their cheaper prices and came back satisfied.
In general, Hong Thai seems a good bet for travel to HK, Japan, S.Korea and Taiwan.
For Thailand, Focal offers competitive packages.
However, I would prefer to go F&E to Australia/NZ and choose the larger tour agencies for travel to the Middle East and Europe as I trust that these larger and more established outfits have more experience and better contacts with local partners with their tours.

It has been paid with deposit of 1.6k Each pax is paying $2425, inclusive of airport taxes, package & flight. No other costs to be added. Anyone interested in this package, please do drop me a msg here and I will get bk to u on the details.
