STOP! Look no further than JammingThailand! Spent two wonderful days in Bangkok with an OUTSTANDING tour guide – Jam (Patnaree) from JammingThailand. Jam took me to places in Bangkok that were practically void of tourists, took me to food stalls / restaurants that left my tastebuds in a state of awe – the food was incredible, and showed me sites you would simply not find in guide books. I have been to Bangkok many times, but Jam made this trip a memory I shall not soon forget.

A great way to see Bangkok! If you are looking for a great way to explore Bangkok, this is the tour for you. It can be quite intimidating being in a big city like Bangkok, especially with so much to see but not much time. Jam was very helpful in helping my organise a tour that covered all the things I wanted to see. This included a food tour of China Town. Visiting China Town in Bangkok was something I had always wanted to do but never got round to it on my own – I am glad I chose Jam as my tour guide as it made the trip very interesting and fun. I would definitely recommend a visit there and to sample the food she suggests! Her English is great so it is very easy to learn about what she knows of Bangkok, and she knows a lot! Another highlight was a trip we took up the Chao Praya river which again was something I wanted to do for a while as there are so many great photo opportunities. Jam could not be more helpful and is a fantastic tour guide. I would certainly recommend getting in touch if you would like a tour of Bangkok.
