Great day, a very interesting trip

I wouldn't have been able to go there and discover all this by myself ! It was a great opportunity !

Picking cockles in San Tor

Getting to see the local communities not far from Bangkok which as a normal tourist you would not see.

Great interaction with real local life

I saw the real local life with real people. I learned about their history, how they live, what and why they do. I wasn't just a tour, was a life experience since the first moment when we took transportation as the locals do. I lived all moments by myself. Highlight to our super fun guides!
