Hello! My name Is Sunsanee. I am local Thai girl and this is a page about my family business that I'm making with soul and an open heart.

We have 80+ 5-STARS reviews on Airbnb and travelers usually say that this experience is amazing and probably the best start of the day. I am really happy about that!

Morning ceremony with a personal guide in one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand – Wat Chalong.

We will meet at sunrise at 7 AM to explore the temple in a majestic morning atmosphere. It’s only you and a few local people who come to pray at sunrise time.

At first, we'll pray with the monk and participate in the morning ritual – the most important ritual in the Temple’s day.

After the ritual, we'll bring food to the monk (I'll give it to you).

Food offering is one of the most important in Thailand – in Thai villages you still can see how people especially wake up early to offer food to the monk. Because that ritual brings good luck to your day.

Also, we'll make a prediction by Siamsi fortune-telling. Siamsi sticks – is a traditional Buddhist way to predict the future.

For many centuries Thai locals use this ritual to get answers about the future - there are more than 28 different predictions.
I'll translate your prediction for you from Thai language.

After this, I'll.. (continue reading at section "Your Host"):
Other things to note
Please, don't be late - we should start at 7.00 - 7.15

If your group is 3 people and more - just book an experience and I will make a private group for you for free.

..After this, I will bring you around the temple to give you a small excursion about Thai Buddhism. I am from a traditional Thai family, I have a lot of interesting stories to tell.

After this, we will make some photos and go to the temple's lake to make a final ritual.

** We are not a big company – we are a local family business. Our target is not to make more money so normally group is a pretty small - only 1 to 5 people.

So most of the tours going in private style. It helps to keep the best tour quality and keep the morning atmosphere.

A big part of our money from every ticket goes to the temple donations and charity. By joining our tour you also helping to preserve the culture and traditions of Thailand and I am thankful for that.

=> Skip the tourist traps and explore Thailand like a local.

I definitely enjoyed this experience! Not only did she give great information but also provided us with everything we needed to participate. It was thoroughly without being lengthy or boring.

Amazing, would go again. Host is so sweet and nice. I have been to temples across the world but this one was the best experience Ive had. 10/10 if there is one thing you do in Thailand have it be this!

Great experience. Sunsanee is an excellent host and was very well prepared. Wat Chalong is a beautiful place and very quiet early in the morning, which makes it even more special. Highly recommended!
