Karen and Christine was in Thailand in 2015 and whilst in Bangkok they went on a tour with a bit of a difference:
On my recent visit to Thailand with Karen we sampled the Tuk
Tuk Experience excursion in Bangkok. This was a really fun way of travelling
around and as our guide was in the Tuk Tuk with us she pointed out different
places of interest that we could go back to at a later date if we wanted to.
After meeting at the hotel and introducing ourselves to
other people doing the excursion as well we headed off to our first
destination, Wat Saket (the Golden Mount). You ascend up the outside of this and
upon reaching the top the views over Bangkok are amazing. Your guide will
inform you of what you are looking out at and also all the history. You then
descend and get back in your Tuk Tuk to your next destination.
The next place we stopped was Wat Po. Here you will be able
to see the reclining Buddha. Your guide will tell you all the history of this
temple like this is the first University in Bangkok and is where the Monks
taught people how to massage correctly.
We then climbed aboard our Tuk Tuks again and headed for the
flower market. Here the flowers and aromas are something to be experienced.
Our next stop was the Phahurat Market, in the heart of
Little India. Here you can pick up some bargains.
Our last stop was the Phra Sumereu Fortress where your guide
will give you the local history and point out places of interest on the river
before leaving you. Your Tuk Tuk driver will take you either back to your pick
up or drop you locally.
This was a really good way to experience Bangkok and a Tuk
Tuk is the only way to travel.
