We can’t say enough good things about this tour, which combined the “train market” and the “floating market” into one tour. No one staying in Bangkok should miss these, as both were far better experiences than the routine tourist traps our regular tour took us to. From most hotels in Bangkok, the trip will take several hours, including an up to 90 km van trip to the southwest side of town. Our guide, Paul, picked us up at our hotel.His English was excellent, and he is also fluent in Spanish. The first stop is the train market, which is a pretty crazy experience. This is a mostly food market set up literally inches away from an active railway line, with small stalls lining both sides for about a quarter mile. The variety of food—fruits, meat, fish, shellfish, vegetables, and some prepared items—is incredible. But what makes it so unique is that about every half hour a real commuter train comes slowly rumbling down the tracks, so close everyone can touch it. After the train market, we made a short (10 minute) van trip to a spot where we boarded a narrow, motorized river boat (wide enough for at most two people in a seat, maybe one if a hefty American). You then ride for about a half hour through an enormous network of interlinked canals, past homes and shops, until you get to the central market district. There, you shop through both onshore and floating boat shops that sell a wide variety of raw food, cooked food, and typical Thai goods. The central canal is jammed with mostly good natured people on slow moving boats—but we walked through the market on foot. After that, it was back to the van for the trip “home” (our hotel). We’re sure that if you wanted more time on the water, exploring the canals, you could work it out. Paul did not overdo it—he pointed us in the right direction and let us explore on our own, which our preferred way to get around. This tour was by far the highlight of our five days in Bangkok and Pattaya.

This was hands down the worst and most disorganized tour we have ever taken. We picked the 3 hour evening walking tour which began at 5:30. We were taken (by Skytrain, not walking...) to Lumphini park, where we watched people do aerobics en masse for 15 minutes. The guide then asked "what did we want to see?" I don't know, that's why we paid for a guided tour. She then told us that our next stop was Patpong night market, but that didn't open until 7pm and it was only 6:15. Why does this tour start at 5:30 then?? We were supposed to have dinner in China Town, but she told us that after 5pm Chinatown is boring and is better to see during the day.... So did we want to see anything else, like Muay Thai boxing? Yes! That sounds cool! So she took us to an outdoor mall along the river called Asiatique -- beautiful, but like any other mall in any other country. The Muay Thai boxing was not in fact a boxing match but a staged show, that we were going to have to pay $60 per person. We declined an after strolling around the mall for a bit, she had nothing else to add or to offer. We took a cab back to our hotel and that was what we got for $51 USD per person. Unbelievable waste of time and money. The tour promises dinner in China Town, but then in the "not included" section, none of your food or beverage is covered. Their website also promises "something extra we can't reveal" but there wasn't anything extra, believe me. This seemed like a cool way to see more of the city than we had before, but it was a complete rip-off. We took the Sky Train, and two taxi cabs, so not much of a walking tour either. There is so much to see and do in Bangkok, it's unthinkable that this is all they could come up with for $100 and 3 1/2 hrs of our time.
