At the weekend I went on a tour with Chin, the owner and chief guide of Chili Paste Tours. Chin does private tours with small groups. I have done a food walk with her in Bangkok (see here), and was impressed with her knowledge and interaction with the local people. She is the kind of tour guide who believes in sustainable tourism. This means supporting the local community that you are touring. The trip this time was Markets and Farms of the Tha-Jeen to the West of Bangkok. I have explored this area myself but Chin took me to places I have never been to before. I had been to Don Wai but it was great to have someone tell you more about the food and other produce on display. The following are the highlights of the pictures I tweeted live during the tour.
