Chiang Rai Tour – Featuring Ae and Ehk!

A couple of days before Songkran kicked off, we set off on our three day tour of Chiang Rai, northern Thailand. Here, meet the new additions that turned our trio into a fivesome: our guide Ae and our driver Ehk, from Thailand Hilltribe Holidays.

Super chatty Ae spoke great English and was forever cracking jokes and having a laugh on our tour. He even taught us to swear in Thai. A keen fisherman, he’s eager to see us come back and join him on a fishing expedition.

Our guide, Ae.

Ehk was a bit quieter and only spoke a tiny bit of English, but he had a wicked sense of humour and would make jokes through Ae’s translations and cheeky hand signals. His dream job? To own an ice cream shop.

These guys were divine; we really couldn’t have asked for a better pair to take us on this tour!
