Monika Piyaporn

A customized trip with Piyaporn

I and my husband came to Bangkok in January. On the second day of our stay we met with Piyaporn. We can't describe how it was great! We took Rattanakosin Island Tour. She told us a lot about Thai history, kindly explained and answered all of our questions. Piyaporn also helped us to plan the next day telling the best ways to reach points of interest. We are very thankful for marvelous day in Bangkok and looking forward to meet her again if we will be in Thailand next time!

Simple and Tasty Food at Artist’s Home/Studio

First Nok took me to a wet market to buy the ingredients for the dishes we were gonna cook. She explained how some ingredients determine the smell, others the taste and also very important in Thai cuisine, the colors of a dish. Her art studio is located in a beautiful and relaxed artist village, called Baan Kang Wat, with a view towards Doi Suthep mountain. Her art studio is an inspiring explosion of creativity. Nok has many different ways to create art. Soon an explosion of amazing smells came from the kitchen. Later on we sit outside to enjoy the delicious food, while chatting away about all kind of daily life subjects. A very nice experience in a very inspiring location. Thanks!
