Nantawan Thikapoon, aka lunthom, is TravelPod's Local Expert representing the city of Bangkok. It's a backpacker's paradise, full bustling urbanites, but still not far from the jungle and all kinds adventures into the unknown. If you're headed to Thailand, don't be afraid to ask Nantawan about her hometown.

Why did you become a Local Expert?

Because, in the beginning I searched the information to plan my trip then I met Travelpod and fell in love. It gave me a lot of sources. It seems I have already been around the world because of your information. It is very world wide and it opened my eyes to see how the world beautiful is.

Bangkok is the interesting place which you have to come. So I signed up to be the Local Expert in order to give you the real information about Bangkok from a local people as long as I know. I hope it would be worthwhile for you all.

Travelpod will help me to practice and improve my Engling skills, I think.k that too.

What are the best and worst things about living in Bangkok?

Have you ever heard about the traffic in Bangkok? It really is the worst!

Anyway, Bangkok has many the best things such as food, fruit, people, cultures etc.

What are the top five or 10 things for travelers to do in Bangkok?

Eat eat and eat Thai foods and fruits! You must try them yourself. Don't trust what other people say, you must try it yourself.

Try to go everywhere by bus, then you will feel the Bangkokian “Traffic Jam”.

Shopping , Bangkok is the paradise of shopping.

Boat Trail along the canal.

Visit Wat Phra Kaew.

Massage will make you feel good and relax.

What are some of your best and worst travel experiences?

Everytime I travel around Thailand I always have good friendships and meet helpful people. That is the best.

Traveling is a bit inconvenient sometimes, but it is the good experience for me, well, I think it does not happen to me.

What is your proudest accomplishment?

Every time I come back from my journey I'm always proud and think "my life is successful" because I think travel is my life. Whenever I point out and go there I will have more experiences.

Where are you planning on traveling in the future?

Yunan China, Indonesia , Newzealand, Japan, India (again) others in the world if I can. Also, around Thailand.

What do you do with most of your time?

Workout, Reading, Searching interesting places and going there.

What's a typical day like for you?

Wake up to work Monday to Friday during 8.00 am till 5.30 pm. Go jogging, then go home to watch TV and sleep and wake up and work. It will run again and again till Saturday and Sunday. Then, I feel very happy to wake up late!

It's just the same thing you've been doing so far. Just pay attention to questions about Thailand and chat with everybody about travel in general.
