Bangkok (Laem Chabang)
Nong Nooch Walking Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

great shore excursion with the highlight being able to rise and elephant, it was better than the cruise ship explained about it. Lot's of different exhibitions to see Tigers Elephants, Tai dancing Elephants doing their own show wow, but my western culture was torn with the Elephants living like this. We paid the $45 each to do an independent tour in Bangkok, being over 2 1/2 hours each way was worth it, a little lost when we got into the city but managed to do a 1 hour boat tour along the river and went half with 3 other people, you pay for the whole boat regardless of the number of people. We were advised not to ride a Tuk Tuk, but did and were extremely happy with our driver although other tourist had been taken advantage of with having them taken to shops were the driver would take a commission. we were luck, we got the train back to the drop off point and enjoyed the Mbk centre market.

Port Rating: Not Rated

cost $45 each, sorry can't remember the name of the tour, but it took us to a temple, a food market, two private homes for rice paper making and rice wine, and to top it off the supermarket. this was about 40 minutes drive from the ship as we chose not to go into Saigon too far for one day! But if you look in your shore tour guide you will find it. we bought all our gifts at the market situated at the port!
