I love travel, and always willing to share my experience with more people. Travel to me is a way which I can connect with the world and challenge myself to become a better person. Being able to experience many cultures and meet new people brings me so many great memories which I am able to share with other people so that people can hopefully go out and travel for themselves.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Thailand and other Southeast Asia countries. I spent lots of times to travel as a traveler. I inspected the destinations as a travel specialist in the area. I visit honorands hotels and meet the local guides as a Purchasing Manager"

How did you get involved in travel?

"One of my cousins being an English-speaking tour guide when I was in my junior high school. I was thinking this is a coolest job ever. That was the beginning of my career. I decided to learn well English from that time, and being inspired to become an excellent tour guide from there."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My most memorable travel experience was going to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos in 21days 14 years ago, because I fall in love with the destinations at that time and helping more travelers to enjoy their holiday there since then. It was my first inspection trip from Thailand and I learnt a lot from this trip. Even though, I traveled to these destinations a few times a year, but still the first trip was so special for me."
