Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak Cruise Day Trip from Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

As stated by others, this is more for tourists. So happy that we were picked up and dropped off at our guest house, as we did not have to deal with getting taxi drivers. Bangkok traffic is constant and really time consuming. Liked that the pick up was early to avoid the traffic. Additional items for tourists helped fill up the time - Orchid farm, coconut farm. Also made a stop to feed elephants. Did not like the fact elephant and baby were restrained by a short chain on both front legs. They should have used a high fence instead. Also, conditions allowed flies to create a uncomfortable situation. Reached market via motorized long boats. We did not see the monkey tricks show. Paid extra 200 bahts per person for locals to paddle in the market. Bought some items while in boat. I see this this trip for photos to impress friends back home! .Guide was good at filling time with interesting facts Price very reasonable for facilities provided.

Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

Bangkok, Thailand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Loved the fact that pickup and drop off from our guest house was provided especially as it was 45 minute ride in heavy Bangkok traffic. Good value for food and music. There was enough vegetarian choices for our needs. Great opportunity for taking night scenes, especially as key buildings have appropriate lighting. Needed low light setting on cameras. Crew encouraged passenger participation in dancing to old classics pop songs from Carpenters, Elvis , La Bamba etc

Chiang Dao Elephant Jungle Trek and Ping River Rafting Tour from Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was highlight of our trip. Anand was an excellent guide - spoke well and understood our needs. Vegetarian food was good and satisfying. Excellent value for money. Note: it is very difficult to take pictures of others in party while riding the elephants. The rafting part was more a 'time filler'. I think hats or umbrellas are most appropriate for the rafting part. On return, stopped at tiger camp for photos with tame tigers! Paid about 500 bahts per person for few minutes in a cage with a tiger for a photo opportunity. Air conditioned small bus was suitable and cold water bottles were provided at several stops .

Kyoto and Nara 2-Day or 3-Day Rail Tour by Bullet Train from Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We had a 2 day trip. Looked forward to riding bullet train. It was expensive compared to other tours, I think
this was because of inclusion of bullet train. After a few minutes ride, the bullet train did not seem any faster or special than Acela train in USA.! . We had Nara trip in the afternoon of first day. Buffet lunch was good. The guide provided full details of shrines etc. Enjoyed taking pictures of Kyoto gardens and shrines.
Pick up and drop off arrangements were very much appreciated. .
