  • Fumiya - From this cultural adventure, I felt the Thai culture is very deep and interesting especially the China town. This was my first time to go to China town and it affected me a lot by the way the China town was and the shops, things that were sold, and the decoration of China town. From now I would like go there with my family or friends to show the beauty of China Town.
