This article focuses on the Australian-Thai research collaboration for the Chiang Mai child-hosted walks of The Walking Neighbourhood hosted by Children: the Australian-Thai research collaboration for the Chiang Mai child-hosted walks. Through storytelling, the Australian and Thai authors share their sensorial ethnographic encounters of two child-led walks in Chiang Mai to provide lived sensorial affective accounts of children's perceptions and engagement with public spaces. These stories demonstrate how the project provides education for children's independently mobile engagement with their neighbourhoods and public spaces, in that the children competently managed responsibility for their adult audiences, and embraced responsibility for sharing their emplaced connections with a neighbourhood locale.
