Bangkok to Ratchaburi Destination Reviews

The driver arrived on time and got us safely to and from our destination. He offered to take pictures for us and I feel it was beyond a good customer service experience.
taxi SUV 4pax, Firstplan Transport Services (เฟิร์สแพลน ทรานสปอร์ตเซอร์วิส), Nov 13, 2023
good as can be in Thailand's 60+ year old trains.

I would have likes to choose my own seat. There was lots of space on the train but I was stuck sitting with someone. I also wasn’t traveling far but a 3rd class seat wasn’t available on the 12.go site.

Much more better than to book a tour to floating market.
