Private tour guide Thanakorn

Thanakorn N.

Phuket, Thailand

Hi, Sawaddee krab! My name is Korn. I have been working in tourism industry for more than a decade.

I love travelling to see different places so that's why I jumped into tourist guide job without any hesitation. Actually, I was born in the north-eastern part of Thailand nearby Laos and Cambodian border in which I called the agricultural triangles but I preferred to live in the south of Thailand with so many things I couldn't find such as the sea, the tropical climate, the limestone mountain and the rain forest with the diversity of the people living in harmony with the multi culture and religion but living in peace in respecting each other. I work almost in the sea such as snorkeling and scuba diving but the nature hiking in the forest is also my favorite. It has now been nearly 18 years since I settled down in Phuket which I call my second home town. I could say I fell in love with the areas of the south of Thailand.

I have occasionally been to the north of Thailand as well to enjoy sometimes the cold season which we don't have in the south.

Working as a tour guide is one of the most challenged job in my life and is one of the very difficult task to handle with people's feelings. I love smiling and make people smile and every problem is always have a solution may be I love my hobbies such as playing Thai chess (Maakruk) or Buddhist meditation that leads me to respect and calm and always find a better resolution.

Talking about Thailand, in general we separate into 4 regions.

The north is the most beautiful situated hill side and river and also cascade waterfall with the most beautiful history background of Lana Kingdom.

The north east is one of the main chateau of rice production plants and the historical sites influenced by Khmer empire spread all over.

The west is the greatest long coast frontier line with the rain forest and the hill tribe with the mixed cultural hill tribe as well.

The south is the most beautiful landscape with both 2 seas the Andaman and the Gulf of Thailand, the different nature beach and sea marine lovers.

So, Thailand has her beautiful nature and people and all of activities for everyone coming to visit all year around.

What will you gain when I am being your guide?
I love small groups and I think private group tour is more personal contact as family intention.
I love flexibility because everyone has their own desire.
I always want to hear the word What a day so I can rest assured of my guiding service is always as quality as it might be.
Your outside home experiences will be more last longing memories because you have met the right person working in the right job.

I can reassure that your will have a great memory in Thailand.

Hope to see you here in Thailand, Phuket.

Thank you, Kobkun Krab!

A Recent Review of this guide

We thought we hired a guide when we booked a tour with Korn. Little did we know we were set for a date with our new friend! Korn is just amazing. He is knowledgable, generous, very accommodating and attentive to our needs. He took us for lunch at a non-touristy place that serves good food, got us local deserts and treat us to a bunch of local fruits! Korn's love for the environment shows when he would stop to pick up trash along the river while we were kayaking. A true Phuket/Krabi ambassador!
