I have been in my career as 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.

Swai decided to run the tour despite the fact that I was the only one that showed up and, as well as giving me a highly informative personal tour, he provided lots of useful advice for my next two (and last) days in Bangkok and Thailand.

We were expecting something different. The tour was missing a structure. We didn’t learn much. I found telling a story is more important than only seeing many places.

Swai is such a nice guide who didn't show us the typical tourist routes. He told us a lot about the history of the Ghost Gate and answered all our questions. We would book a tour with him again anytime.

Fun guru who taught us how to greet, say thanks and excuse me in Thai. Very clear. Appreciated the stories of the Thai kings. Got some nice pictures of the Swing and a few Wats. Also got some food recommendations. Great way to start our first trip to Bangkok! Thank you Swai !
