Da da (the guide) was attentive and lively, gave lots of context to how and why things were the way they were (such as the design, the provenance of statues and paintings). He also peppered his tour with snippets of Bangkok history and geography, interspersed with his personal life history. It was a pleasant, comfortable, and relaxing tour. At no point it was hurried or that he appeared impatient with my questions and requests. I also appreciate the ride and the driver’s careful driving. The car is roomy and comfortable.
