Hi! I am a star in Bangkok. My name is STAR.
I am a good Buddhist and travel guide licensed for almost 10 years. Originally from Bangkok, then I am so glad to show you how my home is. Of course, the Thai real culture is one of what I proudly present and let you experience as same as what I do. As a good Buddhist and working in tourism business, I will choose the temple where you can learn, listen for monk chanting and getting blessed for your memorable while being in a Buddhist country or for your special opportunity as new marriage or birthday blessing.

This was an unforgettable experience For our first time in Thailand! I don’t think we could’ve and/or would’ve done this as first time tourists. Star is very knowledgeable about Buddhism and did a wonderful job of explaining monk hood and what it entails. She is very warm and friendly, and we had a great time with her. At the end of the guide, she gave us some great suggestions and even helped us with the subway. Thank you so much, Star!

This experience with Star was truly one-of-a-kind, she never left me wondering or guessing from the moment I booked on Airbnb with her until the time we parted ways. She immediately opened up her Sunday morning slot for me when I contacter her in Airbnb as there was no other available schedule for me during my stay in BKK. We swiftly agreed on an appointment, and continued to communicate for important notes like what time to see each other, she sent a photo of our meeting location, and reminded me what I may wear during the experience. Upon meeting up, she explained each step from the boat ride, what the monks do in Wat Arun, the proper way to pray in Buddhism, and the daily life of a Buddhist. She shared that Buddhists often go to the temples to pray and offer essential products that the monks would need in their daily lives. In Thailand, the offerings have become commercialized, for example: groceries already have promotions by putting all the products in one basket, ready to be handed to the monks. Unfortunately, most of these may already be expired. But Star personally shops for the offerings and packs them herself, ensuring none of the items are expired. She converses with the monks too, asking what they really need so that she is sure that what she puts in the offering are items that the monks can really use. Upon going back, we visited the local flower market, that gives the real authentic Thai experience. She showed us how flowers are a huge part of the Thai culture, from weddings, to valentines courting, to funerals, and she explained how each are arranged. When we parted, she put us in a cab, ensuring we got to our destination safely and comfortably.
