Surprising, real-time audio guides for train travellers.

We want travellers to better understand and connect with the world outside their window.

So we travelled thousands of kilometres by train to find and produce amazing stories about the things we could see.

Window Seater delivers these stories to curious travellers at the right time and in the right way.


Hello. We're Pete and Rich, the creators of Window Seater.

We believe there are amazing stories everywhere, even alongside the most common of rail journeys, and they're going unnoticed.

So we want to launch a new approach to storytelling; we want to share handmade audio stories about the places that pass by our windows to better connect us to the world outside.

It's a bit of a wild ride - we've got plans to grow a network of stories and storytellers across the world and do all kind of crazy things that lead to more authentic and compelling travel. The Window Seater app is just the start. We hope that you will join us!

Our story
We're travellers who met in Myanmar. Back then Pete was working on an early version of the app, a project he first dreamed up travelling by train in France, desperate to know about the landscape flashing by. Meanwhile Rich was learning Burmese and telling digital stories in Yangon.

Together, we're launching Window Seater in South-East Asia (a part of the world we love). We've logged over 7,000km in Thailand by rail, poured over maps, spoken to locals and narrated more than 200 pieces of content.

This definitely isn't the budget way of making audio! But it's a lot of fun and we're convinced that stories gathered by travellers themselves mean better listening experiences for everyone. We hope you think so too.

Thank you so much for downloading the app and becoming part of the Window Seater tribe.

The only guide you need For Thai trains!

Great, thoughtful and interesting stories about what you’re seeing when you’re on long train rides in Thailand. Just what I needed to pass the time, too. Had fun listening to the death railway line especially! Waiting for more lines to come.

Travel and learn!

Loved the little facts as I cruised through Thailand. Made the journey interesting and informative well beyond my expectations.

Can’t wait to see this little app expand across other journeys.
