Cultural Homestay Holiday in Thailand

Get right to the heart of Thailand on this cultural holiday. One of our most immmersive itineraries, you will journey around Thailand, staying in the homes of Thai people in rural locations. You'll be off the beaten track and away from other tourists on your own tailor-made tour. Mildly challenging, you'll get to stay in three small communities meeting the people, discovering hidden customs and authentic village Thai family culture and life. Make real connections with your hosts as they teach you about agriculture, hill tribes and the history of old Siam on this stimulating adventure.

Get your first glimpse of the Thai countryside on the scenic drive from Bangkok into the heart of Thailand's rice-growing Central Plains region. Feel at home as you get to know farmer Banchoed and his family. Explore paddy fields close to the village and earn Buddhist merit when you're taken to the temple to give Alms to the monks. You'll also have a whole day's trip to nearby Ayutthaya to absorb the UNESCO world heritage ruins and history of this fascinating city.

Fly north to Chiang Mai where you'll be met by Montree and taken to stay in his hill tribe village. Discover the cultures and religions of the community as his guest taking in local museums, farms and watching traditional song and dance. Head out on a gentle trekking tour to take in the lush fertile landscape and see the sun set over the valley.

Move on Chiang Dao where your final hosts, Mae and Boom will treat you to two days of wonderful home cooking as you get to explore the beautiful natural scenery of this area. Visit Thailand's third highest mountain to see fascinating rare birds at sunrise and atmospheric caves. See local sights and pop in on other nearby hill tribe communities before leaving for your boutique hotel in Chiang Mai town to finish with a trip to the famous night bazaar.
