It was my first time visiting Bangkok alone and taking this trip eased my nerves. It made me want to just go out and explore the city on my own. My favorite part of the trip has to be Patupee area. Everything I had on my plate was simply delicious.
I've been to Bangkok so many times and I have never seen anything like what I saw in this tour. It is a good way to refresh my senses, and really see the city for what it is. I got to meet a lot of good people, and the tour guide was polite throughout the whole trip.
