    COVID time! If you are already here in Thailand then I am welcoming people who need a place to stay for short to long term. I am hoping to help out someone who is 'stuck' here.

    Come and stay at a warm house that's in the city (30 min bicycle to the old square central moat) in the ancient ruins of Wiang Kum Kam...and a beautiful farm / forest outside Chiang Mai city.

    This is not a business, it's a private home. I've always got lots of projects happening, mostly carpentry (cutting and sanding), cleaning and gardening. Some people have done paintings others have built walls, it really depends on the moment. We have pheasants that need feeding just around the corner by an ancient chedi (stupa), I love doing it just before going to work^^

    Projects for 2020:
    -finish tables -go to the farm -make a white stone buddha area -cut the grass -finish two paintings -put up some lighting
    -start a mosaic -sand and make legs for big wood table -start a new farm near the house -etc.

    We accept volunteers to try starting Thursdays or Fridays. By Sunday, we all usually agree on how long their stay is.

    My wife and I are FULL-TIME teachers, Monday - Friday 8:00-16:00 I can meet discuss the arrangement after work. My Thai wife also teaches. She is tremendously considerate and helpful and can speak English excellently. I am a Canadian man who has lived in Asia for 19 years. I am easy to drink and happy driving around the countryside. I work full-time at a high-school and look for people who have independence and flexibility.

    I will treat you for meals if I'm with you at meal times. so Mon-Fri = always dinners with me and you normally find your own break/lunch. Everyone has left here having tried lots of different foods!

    We welcome workawayers 28 and older. I really like couples or groups of friends.

    I do not use a smartphone so do not think I can reply all the time. I don't have Whatsapp yet. I make appointments and meet there.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    I am happy to show you some basic carpentry and other skills and let you practice. We have bicycles you can borrow and sometimes motorbikes you can borrow/rent.

    We have always taken WAers hiking and to a few destinations outside the city for fun. We often go to lakes and have dinners. I'll take you to a few of the really local bars, have you try some Thai drinks and play bocce ball / boules with the locals.

    Obviously the history of Chiang Mai is evident in the ruins and I have enough knowledge about it that I could share as well as general knowledge of Thailand, Thai culture and East Asia.

    My wife is a delightful Thai person and WAers have a great time when we take them to special dinners. She's very busy but she'll teach you little bits here and there, cooking, plants, culture and more.

    Arbeit

    When I understand what you are capable of doing, I can usually think of an interesting project for you to help with.

    For people with construction skills, I have a lot of ideas for renovation and beautification. I am slowly setting up a proper work shop.

    For highly skilled artists, have paintings and sculptures that need to be made.

    At the farm, ongoing watering / weeding / planting is needed.

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    Behind the house is a small detached secure room. It is private and has it's own tiny bathroom with a sink, toilet and shower so you can come and go as you please.

    The 3 x 4m guesthouse (not including the bathroom) is slowly being decorated and furnished. We have a single bed and a small table and fan (no air-con) and we have other mattresses. There is a bar fridge, just like a small hotel room^^ You can use our washing machine and we have a hot plate and a wok you can share.

    If there are many WAers, we sometimes invite you to stay with us in the main house. People staying in the main house must be prepared to leave the house (which we lock) Mon-Fri 7:30-16:00. You can still stay on the property and there is an external toilet with a shower so you can wake up slowly^^

    The farm is right near a fantastic reservoir dam...stunning sunsets! It's in a wonderful area to bicycle around. There's a mountain temple which looks over all of Chiang Mai basin. If you like to, 10 minutes away is a rather great mini-golf with mini Eiffel tower and everything!

    At the house in the city, I have a couple bicycles to borrow for free. We have motorcycles for rent if you want.

    In the city: For vegetarians, we have 2 great restaurants nearby; Happy Green is 5 mins by scooter/30 mins walking, a bit closer is a no-name shop (Guan Im) and in many people's opinion is one of the best value in the whole city.

    There are tons of old ruins of ancient temples within 5 minutes of the house, while nowhere near as impressive as Sukhothai or Ayutthaya, they are still romantic. The main road nearby is the Chiang Mai-Lamphun road which is lined by towering 100 year old rubber trees (google: Dipterocarpus alatus) and is a great day trip to Lamphun. It's very easy to get to downtown Chiang Mai by red truck during the day, about 15 mins, or 10mins by scooter to the very centre of the city.
    The location is very convenient for leaving Chiang Mai as well by all means, airport, bus station and train station are almost straight down one road or another.
    On motorbike, it's very easy to go to the southern end of Suthep mountain (the main mountain in Chiang Mai city) and go on the famous Sameong loop
