Select Reward
Durian Chips
$25.00

The durian’s love-to-hate stink is infamous enough for Bangkok subway’s to ban the fruit from being brought onto trains. When baked and slightly sprinkled with salt, however, the fruit becomes a lot more nose-friendly and can satisfy any craving. Reminiscent of a potato chip but beefed up with the fruit’s natural buttery texture, this treat is a perfect alternate to movie theater popcorn. Get acquainted with the durian’s alternate persona, the durian chips, over good Thai blockbuster. We highly recommend Shutter (2004) or Heart Attack (2015)! Donation includes shipping.

Thailand coloring book (as PDF)
$30.00

You’ll receive a coloring book with scenes from the real Thailand, beyond the temples and curries. An illustrator friend of ours helped us to draw up our favorite Thailand moments, from sharing a home-cooked dinner with your family over steaming jasmine rice to giving food to monks just as the sun is rising to start your day by making merit. Take your time filling these pages in with your child, partner, or sibling and get to know what little things define Thailand’s culture. Also makes a great gift for a friend who’s planning to visit this country!

Select Reward
1-hour video call with a Thai team member
$60.00

What makes Thainess unique is the gentle, earnest way in which Thais conduct themselves with each other. For example, the words ka and krub, gendered expressions which soften sentences from an invitation to dinner all the way to a mother’s effort to calm down her crying baby. Body language also differs depending on the ages of who’s around and your relationships with each other. Spend an hour learning about these nuances and anything else you are curious about Thai culture with one of our Thai team members via video chat. Who knows, you may leave having made a new friend! (Sessions will be in English)
