WHAT WE DO
We’re about the choices that clever Thais make, from which restaurant to go to for the best dim sum to which movers are most likely to treat your stuff with care.
This makes us your central resource when you need advice on where to go in Thailand. Whether you need to buy something, get something done, or even just see the best of our country’s sights, we can be your guides.
THE CLEVER THAI TEAM
Meet the people who make our reviews:
A communications graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, Stephanie spent 5 years as a brand strategist for two multinational companies before finding us. She moved back to the land of her birth and joined our team in hopes of showing more people the oft-overlooked excellence of Thailand. Her favorite things in the world include a good thriller and her two feline rescues.
Muhammad is an IT-expert-turned-blockchain-entrepreneur living in Thailand. Aside from running his own blockchain startup, Muhammad offers critical business consultations for businesses in need of cutting-edge tech expertise. When out of the office, he can be found exploring Thai culture and cuisine, discovering all that the country has to offer. You can often run into him in the latest restaurants and bars, checking out what’s new in the scene.
Malee got her degree in Psychology from Chulalongkorn University and often tells people that it has served her well in just about every part of her life. She believes that what she learned in her course has added nuance to her understanding of people as well as how they act and react to each other. Aside from writing for us, she also serves as a human resource officer at another company.
Praew Tan was born and raised in Thailand but has already travelled to nearly every country in Asia. She always attributes her love for travel to her parents, both of whom are also lifelong globetrotters. Unsurprisingly, she has her own travel blog and is also a contributing writer to a number of travel-focused publications. Her heart always stays with Thailand, however, and she’s always happy to come back home after another adventure.
Able to write in English, Thai, and Hindi, Arhthit is a wordsmith of multiple talents. He also has a great love of music, being proficient in both the piano and guitar. His adoration for the arts led him to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Music during his university years, in fact, which he has used to provide private musical tutelage for 7 years. When he’s not guiding his students or reviewing businesses for us, he’s often jamming at home with his kids, both of whom also play instruments.
