Central Thailand Tour: Lotus Pond, Temple & Thai-Chinese Lunch

★★★★★★★★★★

5.0

What an amazing experience!

This tour was really special because it showed us around places that we would never find on a tourist map. Prayutsook is such a wonderful guide. She gave us so much useful info and we learned a lot about Thailand. She is also very friendly and has a great sense of humor, which makes the trip even more special :)

The Lotus Pond was stunning, the food was some of the best we've had in Thailand, the ceramic factory is like an outdoor museum, and the temples were magical. Thank you so much for this unique experience!
