Hello! Nice to meet you, my name is Waan. I have lived in Samrong, Samutprakarn almost my entire life (I also lived in Amsterdam for 5 years) and I would love to show my local area to you! I've studied tourism and worked in hospitality over 15 years and would be very happy to be your local guide around Samrong BTS station, easily reached from city center. I am a friendly, helpful and relaxed guide and we'll take our time to explore my area. I am hosting my guest house on Airbnb together with my husband for over 3 years. We have been awarded super hosts for over 2 consecutive years.
