About me

I love to travel the world, so I understand it can be frustrating when visiting a country that not many people speak your language, so that inspires me to become your local host. I am foodie, so I love to eat at different places and recommend people where they should go and try new things. Also, I love shopping for men clothes and accessories. If you a guy with no sense of fashion, I can help with the makeover.

My most exciting things to do in Bangkok

The mixture of modern culture and traditional culture. Thais are known for being friendly and smiley. Their happiness really helps improving the mood of others.

People who viewed Zarut also viewed these hosts

I am a restaurant owner and I love eating. I'm graduated in Food Science and Technology so everything about food is my priority. As a part-time guide I can share travelers loads of information that they would love to get from real locals. My passions are History, Scuba diving, sports and my beautiful city! I love meeting people from all over the world and showing them the best of Bangkok.

I am open-minded and like to smile. I love cooking and love eating different types of food. I like shopping at local outdoor markets and buy something to eat there. There is a lot of tasty and healthy food here in Bangkok and the prices of the food are also cheap. I have worked in Bangkok for many years. I also work as a part time local host in the evening and on weekends and holidays in BKK. I can speak English very well and I like talking with foreigners and expats in Thailand to exchange the language and cultural learning.

Hi! My name is Monmanus but you can call me Ping. My personality can be described as a friendly, energetic and communicative. I am very happy that you are interested to visit Thailand. There is a lot of things to do in Bangkok, plenty of events, great bars, amazing food. I will make the most of your time and explore unique local spots. Of course, I can show you the must see attractions of Bangkok, but not only.… i will show you the real daily life of Thai people and the authentic Thai culture that usual tourists do not have the chance to see. It will make you understand what it truly means to be Thai, especially when it comes to local traditions or taboos. During day time or a crazy nightlife trip, you will explore the city and all its madness, and you will discover what makes Bangkok tick. I am also open to your suggestions. If there are some specific destinations or ideas please let me know and I’ would love to tailor make a memorable local trip just for you. Let me know if you have any questions and I’'m happy to answer. Thank you for visiting my profile and nice to meet you!
