Everything was good
Had a great time with Arnon and his girlfriend. I chose to skip the elephant ride as you never know if the elephants are treated badly but the rest of the tour was fantastic. Got to see some beautiful temples and I loved the floating market. Arnon also provided drinks and some great dessert snacks and took me to a fun restaurant. As a solo traveller I felt very relaxed and at ease. My only one minor comment is that I am relatively tall so sitting in the back of the car was a little uncomfortable. I only mention this so Arnon might consider this for future guests.
Great trip, so much to see!
The tour was great! We loved the railway market and taking the boat along the canal and exploring the memorial garden museums (even though we were so hot!) lunch was delicious boat noodles in a traditional spot in the floating markets. Arnon was so generous and kind and friendly, would have loved a bit more explanation about what we were seeing but still very interesting and a good time for our big group of 6.
