Chiang Mai, Thailand
Visiting the temples in Chiang Mai was a wonderful experience. The difference between this tour and the many I have taken in other places is the tour guide mostly delivers you to the destination and tells where to meet when done. We didn't get the history or insider information we would have expected on this type of tour. With that said, we would still do it again, the sites were saw were just great and the price was excellent.
The floating market is a must see for anyone visiting Bangkok. The River Kwai was also very interesting but was about 3 hours outside of the city, so it involved a long drive. We were dropped off at the Kwai Museum and then at the bridge, then the cemetary, each time being told where to meet the guide. She did not escort us and give much information. All in all though, I wouldn't have wanted to drive this distance so it was still worthwhile. We had a lot of fun at the floating market.
We had an extraordinary tour guide who worked very hard to insure we had a great day. This trip did involve a lot of walking, but it was all flat and never a problem. We had a wonderful introduction to the buddhist beliefs and the city of Bangkok, I would highly recommend this trip to you.
