Experience Bangkok's Night Train Market With a Guided Tour

★★★★★★★★★★

Its eye opening

The trip is is good. Gift was dedicated to make my day. I really like the train market trip though. The bar or

club hopping were pretty descent. Probably because its on weekdays. It really depends on what you are

looking for. I recommend you explain to Gift at introduction because she really knows her way around

town. I'm more of a laid back guy so i say it was Good. I bet it will be much fun on weekend. Thank you GIFT
