Thomo’s touring at the moment. Currently I am in Bangkok getting three months supply of pork and beer in (Oktoberfest seems a perfect time to do that of course).
Whilst here I booked a couple of day tours. Heading to the tour desk at the hotel we organised a trip to the floating market and the Rose Garden. Later, we were walking along and stepped into a travel agent to inquire about a trip to the tiger temple and the River Kwai. It was there that we noticed that the prices for the tours were between 30% and 60% cheaper than they were at the tour desk in the hotel – and the tours were all with the same companies.
Doh! You would think that after all these years of travelling I would have remembered this – hotel = expensive, outside of hotel = not-so-expensive! 😦
