Please let me know if you are available on all of those 3 days and what tours you can recommend. We are interested in the Grand Palace, most famous Temples, Flower Market, Chinatown, etc. I hope to hear from you as soon as possible as we are leaving the United States on June 28th going to Singapore. Additional details: We are a very active couple, can walk a lot, very punctual time wise, interested in everything authentic and worth looking at. We love history, culture, humor, shopping, food, etc. We are interested in the following attractions: 1. Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn) 2.
