About Us

KKETP – Authentic Thailand!

The Thangthong Family has lived in the Isaan region (Northeast) of Thailand for more than 5 generations. They have worked the land, growing rice and sugar cane for over 100 years. Aside from agriculture, education is a big part of this family. Wirawed Thangthong has been a teacher at the Government school in his village for over 20 years. His daughter, Kattreeya (owner of KKETP) has been teaching English to Thai children for 6 years. Here is a recent photo of the Thangthong clan!
