Great time!

We enjoyed our trip to the floating market Amphawa, a local market ( we lowed this small local market and we enjoyed the long tail boat ride), a local temple, and a local coconut farm. We learned so many things from Thai culture. We had a wonderful guide who gave us infos about the places we visited and also we have plenty of free time to do our shopping.
