    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living in rural Thailand yet still 20 minutes from Chiang Mai's 800 yr old city. Chiang Mai is a dynamic, multicultural city with something for everyone. In the countryside you can watch the cycle of rice farming, visit the local temple and market, learn to speak some Thai with the locals, visit nearby attractions. Also learning about the natural building process, design, and making mosaic.

  • Accommodation


    It is located 15km SW from Chiang Mai, on the edge of a rural village and surrounded by rice paddy. There is one spare bedroom in the house with 3 comfortable foam mattresses, a sofa bed on the back deck, option to sleep under the stars (and a mosquito net) on the upper terrace, a bamboo hut with a double bed and several tents also available. There is a full indoor kitchen and bathroom. We mostly cook vegetarian meals (but you could cook meat outside on the small bbq if you wanted). We can share responsibilities for cooking, cleaning and shopping for meals at the house and we usually go out to a local restaurant for lunch. Food will be provided on site and if we go to the local restaurant for lunch, but you are responsible to pay for yourself if you go out to other restaurants to eat.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Chiang Mai is only 20 minutes away and has lots to offer including temples, Thai Massage, Acroyoga, great food, yoga, dance, hiking... We are 1km away from the Grand Canyon where you can swim, kayak and jump from cliffs and also close to Ob Khan National Park to hike, swim or camp. Many people come to Chiang Mai for motorcycle and bicycle tours in the surrounding mountains....and did I mention coffee?...hundreds of coffee shops around the city to choose from.
    There are 4 bicycles on the property to use for exploring the local area and transport to Chiang Mai (30 minutes) or Hang Dong (10 minutes) can be arranged amongst ourselves (usually by motorbike) or by Grab taxi (like Uber) or by red truck (public shared taxi).

    We have a salt water swimming pool on site to help cool off on a hot day and we enjoy hanging out, listening to & playing music, doing Acroyoga, slacklining, yoga, massage, cooking good food, playing games....
