• I explore and introduce you to the places, people and ideas that matter

    Bangkok-based urban explorer, blogger and purpose-driven entrepreneur.

  • EXPLORE

    I'm a quarter German, Thai, Chinese and Polish on a mission to trace and preserve Bangkok's past, understand its present condition and help to co-create a better future. I focus on ethnically and culturally diverse urban and rural communities, their heritage, stories and local businesses. I provide digital content, live streams, live-guided virtual tours and private tours around my passion for these topics. Find below the areas I'm currently exploring:

  • THE GREAT SINO-THAI VOYAGE

    Thailand has the world's largest Chinese diaspora with over 9 million people. Most people are unaware how deep their influence reaches. From Thailand's cuisine to our daily lives. Bangkok's Chinatown is not only the epicentre of the Chinese community but also one of Bangkok's most dynamic and last authentic districts. I'm embarking on a journey to explore my Chinese roots, the world of my great grandfather in Bangkok's forgotten communities, along hinterland trails through food and people's stories to let you experience Thailand from a new perspective.

    YOUTUBE

    I'm developing different playlists ranging from portraits of people connected to Thailand's communities, behind the scenes content and more to enrich your experience of Thailand in a meaningful way.

    TWITCH LIVE STREAM

    I will soon conclude a stream schedule to have you explore with me the deeper layers of Bangkok.

  • EXPERIENCES I FACILITATE

    I design and guide a wide range of experiences that are non-touristy. My focus is communities, heritage (incl. food) and people through offbeat walks, bike tours and multi-transport adventures. For more information visit bangkokvanguards
