Hope they have the books open on this. A BKK operation running what are effectively zero-baht tours to poor areas of Thailand could be a potential PR disaster without transparency.

This is something that I was waiting for so long. I am a traveler by heart and wanted to be the part of the locals while I am visiting any new place. Asia, being one of the most exotic places, is something that catches my eye every time I plan a trip. And this is simply the perfect time; now I am going to plan my stay with the help of these package tours, so that I can easily have a peek into the daily life of the natives and their traditions.
