Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Bangkok, and then journey back in time as you make your way to the 100-year-old Khlong Suan Market on the Prawet Burirom canal.

Superb discovery trip.

Well organized activity accompanied by a nice and very helpful guide who gave us a surprise when we returned Thai cakes. I recommend this excursion rich in discovery of the temples of the province of Chachoensgsao.
