Paul's review for another Explore tour
“A really good insight into life in Thailand, the city and countryside. Learned so much about Thai culture and history. Food was excellent.At the Beach extension the Hotel Novotel Rim Pae Rayong, all was lovely but they ran out of White wine! not quite what you would expect i guess from a big hotel chain. However the environment and the sea made up for that. ”
