    I had the most amazingly beyond experience getting a Sak Yant tattoo with Where Sidewalks End. Everything went so smoothly, from meeting our guide (Valentino was the best! Super knowledgeable, kind, understanding, funny, good vibes) to reaching the location, meeting the Ajarn and being a part of such a magical and life changing practice. WSE was so gracious to let me bring a companion, as I am traveling abroad and couldn't bare to part from her. I wouldn't have asked for a better experience in Thailand. I'm the happiest, most thankful human for WSE!

    After doing a lot of research on how to go about getting a sak yant in Thailand, I read a lot of wonderful reviews about WSE, so I decided they were my best option. I was not disappointed! Ian was so helpful beforehand and answered any questions I had. I was even able to bring along my friend who I was travelling with free of charge! The day of I was extremely excited; my guide picked me up right on time. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the experience. The money spent was absolutely worth it as I would have been completely lost in every respect had I not had the guidance of WSE. I am so grateful for such an awesome experience and I would definitely recommend WSE to any friends.

    I had my Sak Yant experience in Chiang Mai yesterday, organized through Where Sidewalks End, and cannot begin to express how pleased I am with the entire process. Ian corresponded with me, leading up to the tour, and was extremely courteous, answering all my questions in detail. He also allowed my sister to come along free of charge. Our guide (Lowey) and driver were excellent, picking us up on time at our guesthouse and stopping so we could grab some food on the way. Ajarn Rung was lovely and took the time to discuss with myself (translated by Lowey) the design he felt was best for me and why. We also discussed placement and size before he began. The whole tattoo only took about 20 minutes and in my opinion wasn't as painful as a tattoo gun. It is still healing but I am very pleased with how crisp and detailed Ajarn Rung's work is. Afterwards, Lowey took us to an amulet market and helped me choose one that would be suitable to hang on the wall of my business. Lunch was delicious and they also went out of their way to take us to a jewelry factory when I expressed interest. All in all, this was a perfect day and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to get a Sak Yant in Chiang Mai.

    The Thai BBQ food tour with Where Sidewalks End was one of the most fun evenings I've spent in Chiang Mai. Locals took us to their favorite open-air spot, introduced us to the kind of very regional Thai dishes that other food tours overlook, and we all just chatted over good food and drinks like old friends. For a "tour", it was very creative and non-touristy. Recommended!

    During a 3-and-a-half-month trip around southeast Asia, I decided that a good way of making last forever the memory of such an incredible travel was by getting a Sak Yant tattoo. I had it in the end of November 2015 and was definitely delighted with the experience. Having had the support of a Where Sidewalks End guide made me feel comfortable and safe and that enabled me to enjoy almost all the ritual - as it was so overwhelming that I had the impression I was on a parallel dimension. Thank you Ian for all the support. I definitely recommend anyone who would like a Sak Yant to pass by Where Sidewalks End and I'll sure contact them for a second tattoo.
