SILK, VILLAGERS AND KHMER HERITAGE OF THAILAND

Unique experience which will make you discover a region of Thailand where western tourists do not usually venture. This program is purely cultural and focused on the local handicraft of the very rich region of Isan, but also on Khmer heritage, as this village is located in a region bordering Cambodia.

 

You will be completely integrated to your host family, who will provide you with the accommodation and meals, and you will discover the activities of the village, which are mainly silk-weaving. But you will also visit the landmarks of the region, including the splendid Khmer temple ‘Prasart Hin Phanom Rung’, which is a true gem of architecture in the province of Buriram.

  

The accommodation is basic and the meals typically local. The transportation from Bangkok is operated by public bus, but this experience will live on in your memories for a very long time. You will be able to go biking around the local countryside, and by staying in the village you will participate in the improvement of the villagers’ daily life.
