Our goal is to collaborate with influencers and content creators to promote both bangkokvanguards travel and our upcoming project Hyperlocal. Through our work are exposed to many facets of Thailand – tourism, community empowerment, innovation, culture, inequality and other topics. Behind these topics are not only our travel experiences but people who inspired our organization in the first place. We believe that to advance Thailand and the well-being of the greater good, we need to help the people in the trenches. Whether through innovative travel (BANGKOKVANGUARDS) or through stories and awareness (HYPERLOCAL). It’s the people and their purpose, the aspects of communal life and local Thai wisdom that ignited our work and that’s where we want to return to but we can’t do it alone. Hence we call on story tellers to support us in our endeavor.
We are offering free Thailand experiences, cross promotion and other cool things in exchange for content and exposure. The two brands we’re aiming to get out in the online space are:
WE ARE SEEKING COLLABORATION IN THE FOLLOWING FIELDS
TRAVEL & CULTURE
SUSTAINABILITY & SOCIAL IMPACT
SOCIOPOLITICS / INNOVATION
(emphasis on travel experiences)

THE HYPERLOCAL PROJECT
Hyperlocal is the magazine-style blog of Vanguards founder Michael who traces the past, dissects the present and explores the future of Thailand through the eyes of the locals. Michael takes the audience to the less known locations and unsung heroes. Each location and person, story or topic is connected to an experience on bangkokvanguards. We aim to fuse informative, critical and social conscious content with sustainable travel experiences. We believe that informative and inspirational narratives on cultural travel and sustainability can positively shape the future of our communities and Thailand as a whole. Join us on a journey of connection , adventure and deeper understanding to shed light for anyone interested in Thailand and concerned with its future outlook.
At the heart are the stories of people. Portraits of the people, their work and their purpose are part of the stories we convey with bangkokvanguards. We want to amplify the voice of the locals, the ordinary as well as the unsung heroes that enrich our understanding of Thailand.
Some of the topics we cover:
Sustainable tourism, cultural travel, creative tourism, off the beaten path destinations, Thai culture, entrepreneurship & innovation, social entrepreneurship, social innovation, empowerment, community based tourism, cultural and environmental conservation, education, creativity and all around the sustainable development goals.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Educating the public about the sustainable development goals and how tourism and travelers can make a positive contribution is one of the core targets of Hyperlocal. We want to investigate and uncover not just the problems (we’ve got too much negative news) but contributions and solutions and how these can be integrated into the experience economy.
