Day 3: 14th February 2013
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market &
Kanchanaburi Tiger Temple
2012 Thailand, Bangkok17
Initially the day tour was supposed to be Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Bridge on the River Kwai and Kanchanaburi Tiger Temple but our driver was overslept while waiting for us in our hotel early morning, hence we only managed to visit two. The cost of the tour was 600 baht (approx. to RM63) which included pick-up service from hotel, transport, boat ride an lunch but excluded the admission fee to Kanchanaburi Tiger Temple which cost 600 baht per pax. Booked from Mama Travel & Tour, local tour operator.

Khao San Road, Backpacker's Paradise 
Khao San Road Bangkok Thailand 01
How To Get To Khao San Road:
As there is no connection to Khao San Road by Skytrain and metro, the only options are by taking express boats, buses or taxis. Taking meter taxi would be cost less than 100 baht either from Victory Monument, Siam or Silom. As for bus, take the bus numbers 157, 171 and 509 from Victory Monument (Rajavithi Hospital bus stop) pass Ratchadumnoen Road. You can get off at Khok Wua intersection (one stop away from Democracy Monument). Khao San Road is only a short walk from there. For more adventurous like us, we took tuk-tuk but remember to negotiate and fix the price before hopping on. Most likely will cost between 150 baht - 160 baht for one way from Khao San Road to the nearest Skytrain (BTS Siam).

    1. Hi Miss Lexalyn, for the mama tour, for the first time, I directly went to their shop and booked from there, provided I booked one day in advanced. Second time cause I travelled in a big group, I messaged them via Facebook. Here is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MamaTravelTour
