My Daughter and I had a great day with our guide Sean. Learned about Thailand’s history on the ride to the park. Really enjoyed the Thai cooking class and the food was fantastic! The waterfall was cool and the trek was good as well. Traffic in Bangkok is tough, so the WiFi in the car was welcomed. Thanks Sean!
