About me

I was born and raised in Bandung, one of the most famous cities in Indonesia, but now I live in the capital city of Thailand, Bangkok. I spend half my time walking around the city with my wife to find a new street, hidden interesting places, or restaurants and also cooking simple food in my flat. Playing guitar is one of my favourite hobbies, and I also enjoy music, cinema, and going to the gym. I have an Associate’s Degree in Room Division Management from Bandung Institute of Tourism. I’ve been working in the hospitality industry for 9 years, so I have gained the knowledge and experiences to make your time in Bangkok memorable! I'm always looking for new challenges and adventures, so I love travelling to different countries to collect new memories. I can’t wait to welcome you to Bangkok, so let’s get lost together!

My most exciting things to do in Bangkok

Bangkok is probably the most famous city in Thailand, because there are so many interesting places to visit. The city is easy to get around, the food and beverages are tasty and there are plenty of shopping malls. My favourite place is the Ratchada Rot Fai Train Night Market. You can find a variety of foods there and handy craft shops for souvenirs. A must-see visit in Bangkok is the grand palace temple by boat.

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!

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 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.
