Thai House ,
Info : Thai House
The Thai House homestay is situated 22kms from Bangkok Thailand up the Chao Phraya River along a small Klong (canal). It is the home of a family who have opened their doors to visitors keen to master the art of Thai cuisine or simply experience living the Thai way. The family are on-hand to welcome guests with traditional Thai-style hospitality and offer cooking demonstrations and classes. Cookery courses here last 1, 2 or 3 days.
Guests can visit as a day trip from Bangkok Thailand or stay on for a night or two in the charming Thai-style house. Itâs a custom designed traditional house with 8 rooms, situated on 4.8 acres, surrounded by fruit trees.
The home has been built in an architectural style that was popular around the Ayutthaya region in central Thailand some 150 years ago. The walls, stairs and rooftops feature skillful carvings, an age-old Thai artistic skill. The first floor lay-out consists of three separate houses, each has two rooms which can be partitioned into two adjoining bedrooms by an optional opening door. The homes are linked together consistent with the traditional practise of extended families living and working together.
The busiest part of the premises is the kitchen area. A highly social affair, the joy of cooking and the immense pleasure of eating in the midst of good company is very much central to the traditional Thai way of life.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!
I started doing a search on the net for specialists and came across Experience Travel Group. I liked a lot what I saw on their website so started an online dialogue with one of their operators. She quickly realised what we are looking for and got one of her colleges who was a specialist in this area. A chap called David Gookey called me back to chat about what we wanted. We gave David a brief for our budget and the type of things that we wanted to do and he did the rest. All I can say is he put together the perfect holiday, sorted out the best tours and some incredible hotels. All guides, flights, transport and transfers taken care of. If you're reading this David thank you once again.
