History, food, religion
Korbchai picked me up at my hotel promptly at 8:00 a.m. He provided a helmet & pillion. He'd equipped both helmets with Blue Tooth so that we could easily communicate as he drove. My first impression of him was that he is a very gentle & kind man. Since I hadn't eaten breakfast, he took me to a popular local place where I had khao man gai. Later in the day, he had me try two Thai desserts while I drank oleang. For lunch we stopped at a restaurant for fried rice, fresh vegetables and tom you goong. All meals were kindly provided by him. Our first site was Wat Pak Nam, where we wandered through the museum and saw the interior of the temple. We also saw a few other temples that were next to Wat Pak Nam. The next stop was the artist community by the river. We continued on to a fortress on Butterfly Island, a ship used in battle and to another temple where people make merit by feeding the fish. Throughout the day, he explained many things about Thai food and religion, as well as other aspects of the culture. He is very flexible in regards to your plans as to what you would like to see. He also took many photos of me, which he sent to me within an hour of dropping me off. It was a long, full day of activity, and I would like to reiterate that Korbchai is a very nice man.
