Sawadee ka! A warm welcome from the Eatwalktalktour team! We love to show you the real Thailand, the people and their communities. Our team are in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and we plan to have more friends in other destinations. Bangkok Buay and Eng are sisters. We grew up in a rural small town, Northeast of Thailand. Later, we moved and have lived in Bangkok for over 25 years. We have worked in the tourism business for over 16 years. We are proud of our rich culture and heritage. We love to show our landmarks, temple ruins, hidden communities, small markets, and rural areas of Thailand (farm, village). We also like to meet, talk and see how the local craftsmen work or go to the market to buy local food. We are looking forward to meeting you on Heygo and perhaps in person one day! We are sure your questions and curiosity would make our tour fun and enjoyable. Chiang Mai Meet our best friends Tina and Phil. Tina and Phil were born and raised in Chiang Rai but have lived in Chiang Mai for over 30 years. They love to meet new people and share their insights into Lanna's culture. They have prepared unique tours, such as talking to a Buddhist monk during temple visits or do craftsman work in the temple. They also would like to take you to see hill tribe people and teach you about their local life.

One of the best temple tours with Tina and Phil. The Buddhist temple itself is very special, which respectful nestles among the green backdrop of nature. We were very lucky to meet and greet a Buddhist monk, who kindly showed us how to put on his robe and told us his journey to studying and now teaching Buddhism.
