About your guide, Pongpunt:
Hi travelers! Traveling has been my passion since young. So far, I’ve been to 29 countries and I’m still counting. I was an exchange student in the US and Taiwan for a year each. Last year I finished my MBA from INSEAD in France. Currently, I’m a business developer for the biggest energy corporation in Thailand. When I’m not working, I enjoy tasting great food, exploring new places, and meeting cool people and I am excited to do all of that while making some lasting memories with you all!
