Tips in choosing the right Travel Agency in Khao San

As they say, all backpacker roads lead to Khao San
If you're looking to book a tour to the floating market, here are some tips for you:

1. Ask for the name of the tour agency who will do the actual tour. Some are just agents / resellers for another company.

2. Look for the cheapest price, but compare the inclusions. Some agents may sell the same tour for a higher price, but you'll get the same service/ quality.

3. Ask what is included. A cheaper price may not include a boat tour.

4. Ask how many stops are there to shop, and what kind of shops are included. It depends on what you're after for, be it painting, carving, silk, etc.

5. Ask what boat tour is included. There are two types: paddle boat and motorized long tail boat.

6. If motorized boat is included, ask what is the area covered. Ideally, you'll see the community and some canals away from the market.

7. Ask what kind of car/van will be used. Though using a bus may be cheaper, it would mean a lot of wasted time waiting for more people. Confirm that the AC would be working well, too.

8. Ask for a guarantee and tell them you will demand for  a refund if the terms are not met. This will encourage them to be honest about the trip, and allow you to decide if the trip is worth the price.

9. Ask around, ask at least 4 agencies before you decide.

10. Do not be ashamed to ask. If they are not accommodating, that is already as sign of poor service during the actual tour. Move to the next agency. There are hundreds of them.
