What you'll do

Take a journey to the past, immersing in Chiangmai's unique and vibrant history through the art of storytelling. Uncovering fascinating and fun stories that you would never hear from any official guide!

Learning from the past allows us to understand our present. What though off as a newly won freedom might just be a long-forgotten way of life 1000s years ago. Take a journey back in time to the strange but refreshingly liberal culture of ancient Chiang Mai (the capital of Lanna Kingdom).
Meet the "Ancient Lanna Hipsters", discover their "very different" definition of beauty, their unorthodox beliefs, and super hilarious courting ritual!

This tour is a labor of love from multiple years of research that was once supposed to be for a historical-based novel. With a twist of fate, now it has transformed into a tour to introduce the world to the amazing Lanna culture!
Other things to note
Let's have a good time together.

I love history, art, nature, and people. Naturally, I’m always curious and try new things. I travelled here a while back and instantly fell in love with this city. So I decided to move here and make Chiangmai my new home. During the past few years, I went to countless numbers of museums, galleries, nature hikes, joining tons of activities and workshops. As a result, I accidentally become the so-call “local expert” among friends, if anyone in my circle decided to visit Chiangmai they would likely to give me a call first :)

This is my passion, to entertain, to educate, to ensure that you have a great time. I’m not just a stories teller but a friend. My friendship goes beyond the end of the trip, as I really wish you to love Chiangmai as much as I do, and maybe one day call this city your new home as well.

I organized this storytelling session with Sue as an activity for our remote working team and we had such a great time. Sue helped bringing to life great stories about Chiang Mai and unique insights that really inspired us. Highly recommend this special experience!

I randomly picked this experience and I'm soo glad I did. This is really such a special, fascinating, refreshing experience thanks to the beautiful "ancient Lanna Hipsters" and the vibrant host and expert Sue with her positive energy and passion for history and stories. I enjoyed the lively interaction with her and it's so awesome to learn so much about a different culture with lots of pictures, documents, self-made cartoons (so cute). I highly recommend. (I only regret that I got 0 points in the quizz ;-) I'm joking... ) Thanks.

I am Thai and I still learned so much in this experience. There were many things I didn’t know. The history behind Chiangmai was fascinating. Sue did a great job! Highly recommended!
