Floating Markets and Rose Garden Cultural Center Day Tour from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The gloating market is another 'must see" for Bangkok. Unfortunately the whole thing has now been much commercialized.There was more gaudy market "junk' for tourists than genuine marketeers selling vegetables and fruit. A ride in a boat on the canal is an experience though. The Rose Garden is a truly beautiful place and we had the best Buffet lunch of our trip there.

Bangkok Grand Palace and River of Kings Canal Cruise Small-Group Tour

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The cannal cruise was a good way to see another picturesque part of Bangkok. The Longboat ride was interesting. Persnonally, being an older lady ,I found it a long way down to board the boat and even harder to get out. I had to be helped by strong arms! The Grand Palace is definitely a "must see". It made a very long and exhausting day on foot in the heat for me, but I am very glad I have had the experience.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour wwas all that was expected. A long day but a very memorable one. A good chance to see the countrysie around the city. The elephant ride was the highlight of the day. the elephants went through the trees and down to the river. Some tourists were invited to ride on the elephant's neck an " drive". This tour would make a wonderful family day out.

Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We were particularly lucky taking the cruise on the King's Birthday. We cruised past the Palace just as they let of fireworks in his honour, an enchanting sight. The cruise was a very enjoyable experience . A particularly good saxaphone player entertained together with good live vocalists., some people got up and danced. The buffet dinner was average, warm food was cold by the time we had viewed the fireworks. Hostesses were pleasant, everyone was presented with an orchid to wear, but there was a rather long and crowded wait for the boat to arrive during which peoplelooked at or bought from the shops on the docks . A night to remember..

Singapore Jurong Bird Park Tour

My Review
An enjoyable tour to a well set up bird park. The tour was more suitable to families with children than a person really interested in the study of birds. I felt we were being a bit rushed along.

Singapore Round-Island Tour with Changi Prison, Kranji War Memorial and Gardens by the Bay

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
This was interesting in regards to the overall concept of Singapore and it was particularly interesting for those who have connections with the war dead. The Haw Par Villa was a bit over-rated I thought, though the gardens were nice. This tour would have been a bit offputting for people travelling with children.

Singapore City Tour with optional Singapore Flyer

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The bus tour was a good orientation of Singapore, though the ride in from the airport would rival any city in the world for its beauty and tidyness. All the bouganvillea flowers were out and were a magnificient sight. The Singapore Flyer was a worthwhile experience.

My Review
This tour was a "must do" while in Singapore and a very enjoyable experience.The train ride through the jungle at night was memorable. However. the place was crowded with tourists and tourist busses which made getting away at the end rather complicated. The buffet dinner was average.
