The direct contact with the locals living in Khlong Toei, learning more about their daily lives and difficulties. I liked that your tour is giving the community a face.
Great opportunity to listen the personal stories of the people in Khlong Toei!

I didn't know nothing about Khlong Toei before and I was positive surprised by how people have to "fight " everyday against so many things. Every single story, every single smile was so important for me, for making me understand how those people are strong and they just need more opportunities and help. Everything all guides told us was very important to see the history (numbers, attitudes, things to do, etc), but I've learned more listing people from the community and knowing better this histories, they are the "behind the numbers". Definitely my favorite tour ever in Thailand, because it was about real people. I love the tour, I really liked how we walked without rush, stopping to listen people. Storytelling is powerful and touching, so just keep telling short cuts about people from the community.
Nice community with lovely people
