Spent two days with Apple in Bangkok.
She was very receptive to what we wanted to see and put together a fantastic itinerary. She made sure we got,to spend as much time as we wanted at the locations we had outlined and added some great sights we weren’t aware of. The experience exceeded our expectations and it was clear she wanted to do everything she could to make our time in Bangkok a great experience.
She definitely succeeded. She was very knowledgeable about the sights we were seeing. She made traveling around Bangkok easy to navigate. She spoke exceptional English. We wanted to go off the beaten path to visit a shop where they make hand made metal bowls for monks.
It’s a Thai craft that is slowly disappearing. She helped translate the experience as the man in the workshop described his process. We mentioned wanting to purchase some authentic Thai silk. To our surprise she took us to a silk weaver who actually had worked with Jim Thompson and again translated his explanations of the weaving process as well as his experience with the silk industry when Jim Thompson had lived across the canal.
It was an amazing surprise and experience of a life time. We visited the markets and Apple did all the haggling for us getting us the Thai discount lol. It was a ton of fun. Couldn’t have asked for a better time.
