What people say about this tour
I travelled with a group of colleagues as part of a recent work conference in Bangkok and we decided to book this tour. We all enjoyed it and think it is a great introduction to thai food for those who are new to the cuisine. We visited several floating markets and the train market, all worth doing if a little touristic. However we did not visit Damnoen Saduak the most touristy one and i was not unhappy about that. The ones we visited were a lot more authentic. Olive our guide pointed out all the foods and gave us an excellent overview. A word of warning - there was lots of food to sample! Go with an empty stomach and on a day where you don't need an evening meal. There was plenty to eat. In fact we had to ask Olive to cut down portion sizes as we had a dinner planned that night and we were already full after the 3rd stop with a biger meal planned.DeeDeePop, TripAdvisor |
During the former we have been able to visit 5 different markets, and specially the Maeklong Railway Market and the Tha Kha Market have been unique experience.Stefano O, TripAdvisor |
We were off to a floating market where we got an amazing meal, and a ride through a coconut farm by longboat. This was a life experience. We met the village elders who made the coconut sugar, and got to tour their village by boat. After that we went to a different town to enjoy more amazing and authentic Thai food. The tour made 5 stops in all and every stop was magical and amazing.Bradjumper, TripAdvisor |
