Awesome with ben trip to Floating market and the Maeklong Railway Market
It's always helpful to have a localite showing you around. Ben picked me up from my hotel and then we started our 90km trip to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. He brought is personal car. And what a beautiful place it was. Ben has been to these places dozens of times and he advised that we start early. And boy, was I happy. Just when we finished the whole place was crowded. He's very well informed and a delight to hang out with. We talked about several things. He gave very useful tips and information I as a backpacker needed to know. Then we headed to the Maeklong Railway market. We even sampled some traditional thai sweets. I got to see things I would not have been able to see if it was not for Ben. Language is a bit of a challenge with the locals, so with him around it was a breeze.
Thanks Ben for your time. Apologies for the delay in writing this. I will get in touch with you again through TakeMeTour when i'm there again. All the best.
Safe Fun Pleasant
It was a pleasant outing with Mr Sinchai, who was accommodating and willing to go extra mile for the comfort of his guests. I traveled with a young kid, he always ensure that my daughter is within sight. He has provided valuable information for us to understand local practices and cultures. Mr Sinchai also recommended reliable eateries to his guests to ensure good level of food hygiene. He cared to provide chilled mineral waters and wet wipes during the journey. Overall experience was excellent, value for money tour. Thumbs up!
