“When I’m not on tour I go to the tree market to buy some trees and find some new ideas to decorate my garden at home.”


When did you first start working as a chauffeur and what made you join the travel industry?

It was in 2010 that I started working with Khiri Travel, my friends suggested joining this company and now it has become a part of my life already.


What are your hobbies and what do you like to do at home when you are not on a tour?

When I have free time I always plant a tree and when I’m not on tour I go to the tree market to buy some trees and find some new ideas to decorate my garden at home.


What makes you enjoy conducting tours for Khiri Travel Thailand?

Teamwork between driver and guide, I also enjoy the tour program especially the new programs because I love to learn new routines and the new attractions to improve my own knowledge.


What are the things that you do to make things more special for your guests?

I always treat every guest as a VIP. In case if we have any birthday guests I will prepare a small gift or small cake to make them happier when they are on the tour with us.


What are your future aspirations?

In the future, after I retire from Khiri, I suppose to go back to back to my hometown to do farming and spend the rest of my life with my family.


P.S.: Compliments from clients always fill my energy and I will do my best to make them happy as much as possible.
