My name is Chanika Suwanmanee, but everybody calls me Chani! Although I am an chemical engineer by education and holding a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering, I have decided to dedicate my life to being a tour guide because I found out that I am someone who needs to be free and out in nature, by actively going cycling and hiking.
I am a member of a racing VITAMILK - VANILLA Residence Cycling Team in Chiang Mai. I have participated in many amateur road and mountain bike races throughout Thailand. Besides cycling and hiking I love traveling. I have traveled in Asia, Europe and New Zealand between and after my studies to improve my foreign language skills and to learn more about other cultures. I found out that I very much enjoy meeting people from different countries and exploring the world together.
Therefore I attended the Tour Guide Training Course at The Far Eastern University higher education institute and now I am an official tour guide license holder, approved by the Tourist Authority of Thailand (TAT), for the region Chiang Mai & Northern Thailand. Besides speaking Thai, I am confident in English and I even speak a few words of German and Dutch.
After working as a tour guide for several tour companies I have decided to start a new chapter in my life: I launched my own tour agency: Chiangmai Cycling Buddy
