Our tour guide was excellent, very sweet, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Even a few good jokes! The two markets were great, but definitely tourist traps, especially the floating market - not a local to be found that wasn’t selling something. Not to say it wasn’t beautiful and the food was excellent, just know that it’s a tourist spot more than an actual functioning market at this point. That being said, it was very nice to get out of central Bangkok for the day and ride the train a bit. Thanks!
Unforgettable experience! Describing it won't be enough to explain the emotions and incredible impact it had on myself and my partner. The whole experience is at the elephants pace, in their natural environment. The team who takes care of the elephants are 100% committed in the cause and in these animals safeguard. The money raised through tickets and merchandise will contribute to the protection and long-term care of elephants in their natural habitat.
I can't recommend this tour more highly. Our tour guide spoke very strong english and shared interesting tidbits throughout the ride. The tour was very well organized in terms of timing and the transport van was very comfortable. The sights themselves were amazing and the price was fair. This is definitely not a tour to be missed even though it starts very early!
Riding on the Thai train was a great experience with the wind blowing through my hair. It was great to see how close the train comes to the market. It was good to go on a boat in the floating market. Felt like a drive through going up to other boats to buy food etc. without even getting out the boat.
Kiwi and Sam our driver were amazing . What a character Kiwi is - she well and truly made the trip even better than expected! I'd have her over and over again as a tour guide! What a honour it was - kamoonca! (She'd be proud as she made us practise until we got it right ;) )
