"The route took us to places we would not have ordinarily ventured to, and provided a good insight of ordinary life in the city for regular folks. It was also a great introduction to getting around – how to identify the various types of river boats, getting tickets for the train etc. [Our guide] was very informative about the founding of the city and the various areas.”

Originally from Chiang Mai, Thailand, Chatchai moved to Bangkok for his studies in Food Science 18 years ago and set up a restaurant business 6 years ago.
