Bangna, Bangkok, Thailand

Sawaddee, khrub. Welcome to Thailand with a great pleasure.

Sawaddee, khrub (sə wäd dee khrŭb ➯ สวัสดีครับ in Thai) means hi or hello․

My name is Swai (sä◦wī ➯ ไสว in Thai)․ Many years before upon the later of my newly university graduation, I still didn't have any appropriate goals for a career job I needed but just acquired some occupations to obtain only job backup experiences․ Beginning with the very first one was a temporary volunteer for various youth camping clubs and continued another seven years as a private school teacher, then I still spent most of the time roving in search of a few avocational jobs such as an office clerk; an office coordinator; a tutor and etc․ Though, those were still not my types of works, none of them was by no means the favorite career․

It was almost matched to my aim in the tourism industry when I had been working in a travel agency for more than 12 years․ But, in fact, that kind of job still seemed to me so similar routine to any others in an office work․ I realized that my accurate innate habit was to go outdoors and worked like a free bird, not in a type of surrounding room walls․ Also, it was definitely my personal favorite hobbies and interests in traveling; hiking; swimming; scuba diving; photographing; reading as well as receptive learning more and more extra essential knowledgeable skills․ After making a decision to escape from the ordinary pattern of an office room, I straightforward finalized my career determination to be a local cultural tour guide and truly love to approach some informative details about local culture; custom; tradition; history; native lifestyles including national heritages and natural resources․ At present, as a specialist, I have been working as the nationwide licensed professional local tour guide since 1994․

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 to update from one place to another vicinity even repeatedly from some hidden isolated communities to the most highlight attractions by myself․ That is no doubt that I have absolutely habituated not only to the central areas but also to the suburbs and the environs․ Most of my personal journeys have been on foot, sometimes by various means of public transports․

Moreover, apart from the capital city, I have also been very well accustomed to traveling to a lot of main provincial districts․ Those of my previous journeys and experiences were covered to all provinces of the entire country․ Among my former private trips, some of those were on purpose for social service activities such as volunteering on social functions; charitable relief for sufferers due to any of natural disasters; visiting remote upcountry temples for donations and so on․

However, there are still more and more eminent spectaculars; unique and extraordinary diversities together with challenging activities in evidence for worth a visit this fascinating country significantly․

So, let join the local tours to be an especially honorable guest of this cordial land, and it is really undoubtedly, Thailand ․ ․ ․
