Great experience!! Loved going to the coconut sugar farm and seeing the sugar get made! The boat ride to the market was also an amazing experience, but the best part was definitely the cooking class! Jaynie taught us so much and it was amazing learning how to cook all the local dishes! Definitely a must do experience while in Bangkok!!
