Floating Markets and Bridge on River Kwai Tour from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour with a knowledgable guide.Only a small group of us (3) again. Pickup from/to the hotel was efficient and on time. First we visited some local markets and then it was off to see a coconut factory and a wood carving factory.Both were excellent and an added bonus- the craftmanship on the products was second to none. The floating markets were next- worthy of a tour in itself. Nice to se the hussle and bussle of market life on the river. After this we stopped for lunch which was included with the tour. The food was excellent with a good variety on offer.
Next it was onto the Bridge on the River Kwai. We stopped at the JEATH museum , a humbling exhibition of what the prisioners life was like and then visited the cemetary where thousands of soldiers are buried. The Bridge was after that- and interesting spot but unfortunately very "touristy" . Remember to take your camera- youre going to need it for this one !
The drive back to Bangkok took around 2hrs.

My Review

Excellent tour , cant recommend it enough. The pickup and drop off to/ from the hotel was on time and efficient. There was only 3 of us on this tour and the guide was very informative. Even took us to a couple of local markets between each of the temples to break things up a bit. The reclining Buddha was incredible - definately worthy of a visit. If you have a chance- do this tour !

My Review

Really enjoyed the tour , unbelievable sights to be seen at the Grand Palace .It's definately a "must see" when in Bangkok. There was only the 3 of us on the tour which made it so much better. The guide was informative but was a bit pushy towards the other couple trying to persuade them to do another tour the next morning. The only real negative in my opinion was the gemstone factory visit at the end of the tour. They weren't pushy though and was able to leave immediately after telling them I wasnt interested in purchasing. The complimentary drink there was appreciated though.....cheers :-)
