What you can expect

Join me on this private tour and I can show you all the amazing treasures and wondrous sights of The Grand Palace. I can explain the significance of the beautiful architecture and tell you the meaning behind the intricate details carved into the buildings.

I can guide you to the heart of this 200+ year old spiritual complex to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha: officially called the Wat Phra Kaew. This most highly revered Buddha image is 600+ years old and is meticulously carved from a single block of jade. I can tell you about the history and philosophy associated with this shrine.

On this tour you can also learn the history of Thailand especially about Bangkok and its influence across South East Asia. I can also tell you about how Thai people live today and how many of the old traditions are still central to our way of life.

My tour with you and your family and/or friends through the Grand Palace is 100% private – it’s all just for you. So if there is something you particularly want to see or do in the Grand Palace, I will do my best to make it happen. Just let me know what you would like.

*Please remember that 'wats' (temples) are sacred places and you must dress appropriately. So no shorts, slippers, sandals, or revealing tops, otherwise you won't be allowed in.

* Entrance fees are 500 THB/person; please pay the amount in cash to the host as the host will buy the tickets upfront. So, you don't need to worry about buying the tickets yourself!

I am a truly Thai who has been living in many places in the north, the south and the center of Thailand. I graduated as a tourists guide in 2013 after a bachelor of food science and technology in 2008.

There are many stories I can share them with friends and you.

Let's have fun and enjoy a trip in Thailand."
