    • Good to know

      Wear something light and long when you visit palaces or temple.You’ll need to wear pants or a dress/skirt that extends well past your knees, and a top that fully covers your shoulders. If you don’t, the Grand Palace does offer a clothes rental service in which you can borrow some stylish trousers and/or tops for a refundable 200 baht deposit from an office near the entrance. Hang onto your claim ticket, however, as you will need it to get that deposit back.

This vibrant, most famous of local markets features numerous small boats laden with colourful fruits and vegetables, paddled by Thai women wearing bamboo hats, and is one of the only places to see this traditional way of buying and selling goods in Thailand. Almost always crowded with hundreds of sellers, buyers and tourists, the best way to experience the bustling atmosphere of the market up close is to board a boat and float through the small canals purchasing fresh local produce from the vendors. Afterwards, drive to the Samphran riverside located on the banks of Nakhon Chaisi River where a buffet lunch awaits followed by Rose Garden Thai cultural performances. Return to hotel and have a rest before your visit to Asiatique river front night bazaar.

    Ume travel is an amazing company in every way! They know all the best places to go and have extremely well trained and educated staff. Our guides were Andy Fortnum and John DeVries, and I couldn't have asked for a better pair. They always went above and beyond my expectations for guides. Andy especially was so great in every way! He was also extremely educated in not only Thailand-related facts, but also about places and things all over the world. Each location we went to was amazing and also went beyond my expectations! Ume travel has created a great relationship with all of the locals and it really shows how respected and well-liked the company is by everybody. I would definitely give them a 10/10!

    Best 11 days of my life, John and Andy were amazing guides. Every stop we went the locals were so happy to see them, and were highly respected by everyone/they were always very respectful as well. They were always there with answers for your questions, and taking care of you. Transportation was always ready and waiting for us when we needed it, you take a variety of vehicles/boats and same with your rooms and it was always fun to have something new, Already planning my next free and easy tour.

    For a first time traveler this has been a great experience. Having all the days set up for you is excellent so you don't have any wasted days also if you came to Thailand by yourself you wouldn't even think of going to some of the places like Ko Samet which is a beautiful place to stay. Our guides made the trip as well with always being enthusiastic and getting everyone involved with the activities.
