Why this trip?
This trip started from my intention to promote my home town to the world. I was born and living here. I know the areas so well. I will make you feel about visiting really local places, not only tourist famous places in Thailand.
What makes it unique?
I like traveling. I understand what you want and what will fascinate you during the trip. I will be your friend, not only a tour guide or a trip agency. I speak Thai, English, Chinese ;)
