Meet TakeMeTour, the Thai startup trying to match travellers with local experts

Have you ever thought of taking a holiday where locals whisk you around their home town to give you a taste of their lives? TakeMeTour is a Thai online marketplace that does just that.

DEALSTREETASIA caught up with website co-founders Amornched Jindaz-apiraksa and Noppon Anukunwithaya. Edited Excerpts.
