There are not many tours on the River Ping, so my wife and I opted for this one.
You will be greeted by a lovely old gentleman who will remind you of Mr Sulu from Star Trek.
There is a little break in the tour where Mr Sulu takes you to his house on the river bank and give you a 20 minute lecture on the flora and fauna in his garden.
There is a little light meal of sticky rice and mango and a lychee juice, all very nice.
The cruise then continues along the river with a very informative narration of the landmarks, with the aid of some old original photographs.
Point to note, this trip lasts only 70-90 minutes and costs THB500 each.
Last week I took a boat trip from Ao Nang taking in 7 islands with numerous snorkelling opportunities, lasting approximately 7 hours with a beautiful BBQ sunset beach event near the end. That cost THB400 each.
Good Mr Sulu, but I think you need to reign in the dilithium crystal and turn down the warp engines!
