Very worthwhile tour. The floating markets are a bit of a hoot, with soooo many boats all trying to move up and around, but fun. The stalls are excellent to barter with and got some very good deals. Also enjoyed the deep fried banana's cooked on a little boat. You definately should try them. The Kwai was very emotional seeing the site the soldiers had to work in. I looked at the mountains and wonder how they must have looked at them to, wishing they could escape away and over them. The area then would have been dense jungle and the heat was amazing, my heart went out to the soldiers. They have made the area a lovely site now, and there was a Thai playing the violin on the bridge as you walked it and that bought tears to my eyes of the many who never made it back. The only thing I felt should be shortened was stopping at working farms as there were too many and more time would have been enjoyed at the floating market and Kwai bridge, but overall an excellent tour.
Very enjoyable evening, boat was good and the staff and entertainment were fabulous. I would of preferred the old red rice boat more, as it looked like it offered more atmosphere and better dining. Overall an enjoyable night to see all the lights of the Palace and beautiful temples.
