  • Thai workmanship is amazing. The skills and dedication of the artists we meet was worth the visit. You can cater the tour to suit what you want to see, but we highly recommend the wood work/carving and the pottery. Both give you a great appreciation for the amount of time and effort involved in producing the fine products you see. We didn't feel pressured to buy anything, which probably meant we bought more as it was of our own free will without any pushy sales pitch. Great tour and our guide Aim, was very knowledgable.
