My name is Buay. I host Airbnb experience host since 2017 and now I have 3 experiences on Airbnb : I used to work for 5 companies as a tourist guide. But now I am happy to have my own experiences on Airbnb platform. And I am happy to create more and more to share with my lovely Airbnb guest. Buay , Eng and their friends are third-generation Chinese. We love and are curious about the Thai-Chinese immigrant story since we are part of Thai-Chinese cultural heritage. We went to see local guru , met lecturer in seminar , walked around our own , read books and showed many of our friends many times before coming up with this route. We are really exited to show the story of our ancestor’s path which how it makes all Thai-Chinese people as today.
