Who’s telling the story?

Returning to Thailand from their studies in the US, Buay and her sister Eng got into cultural tourism 16 years ago. With an original idea to connect tourists with local communities, they work with fishermen, agricultural farmers, and goldsmiths whose unique lifestyles remain undiscovered.

They have received guests such as the King of Malaysia and the ex-governer of New York City. But running a family business in tourism for 16 years also meant the two sisters have to deal with many unexpected catastrophes.

Let us hear the stories they tell.
