    Picked up at our hotel on time and left at the end of our day to another hotel we booked for that night. Steve our guide was explaining us everything we needed to know. The train market is really nice but try to go early in the morning to avoid too many tourists and the floating market is nice too but we were expecting a little more local life than just a tourists souvenir/food/extra activities set up. Coconut sugar farm was nice too. It’s worth if you spend more than 3 days in bangkok otherwise there are many Day and noght markets in the city that are also nice.

    Customer focus at the top

    From the time we were picked up at the hotel it was clear that the trip was based on our wishes, including the guide Gigi made sure we got the photos we were looking for, regardless of the many other tourists in the train market. Gigi also had a good background knowledge of life and everyday life in Thailand, and we got a lot of good information.
