I love my career to be a local cultural tour guide, and I truly love to approach some informative details about local culture, traditions, history, including national heritages and natural resources․ I was born in Bangkok, the city where I had even educated and graduated from․ Today, it is also the city where I intend to live in permanently․ Nowadays, whenever at my own leisure, I always like to explore from one place to another vicinity, even repeatedly, and from some hidden isolated communities to the most highlight attractions by myself․ Without any doubt, I have absolutely wandered not only the central areas but also the suburbs and the not so well known places․ Most of my personal journeys have been on foot, and sometimes by different means of public transportation.

The tour was informative but felt rushed.

Swai is very knowledgeable about everywhere we went and also had lots of great history and cultural stories to share. We were very fortunate to have him as our guide today! There were only 2 of us on the tour so he was very flexible and we got to see many things not on the official tour. Such a fun day, thanks Swai!
