Expert Leader - Chai Jaisodsai
Chai was born and raised in a small village in northern Thailand, close to Chiang Mai and near the Thai-Myanmar border. He studied at Chiang Mai teacher college and taught in a village for a year before uncovering his true passion for adventure and travel.
This led him to Chiang Mai University, where he gained his tour guiding license. Initially a trekking guide, he joined Exodus Travels in 2013, sparking a love of Indochina and cycling adventures. He is now one of our most experienced and knowledgeable cycling leaders in Southeast Asia, passionate about leading Exodus clients by bike and navigating the rural areas of Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Consistently receiving excellent feedback, when Chai isn’t leading tours, you can still find him on his bike, as cycling is now his number one hobby.
Expert Knowledge in:
- Southeast Asian culture
- Languages (he speaks Thai, Karen, Pow and English)
- Leading cycling tours of Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam
- History of the Angkor temple complex
