Homestay in Ban Pla Khao

A nice and very good way to learn Thai is by doing it. A fun kind of total immersion holiday in which you learn a lot and fast!

We do that in the village Ban Pla Khao. This charming little village lies in the province of Amnat Charoen close to the border with Laos deep in the Isan region. Our village is well known for its mor lam performances. A form of song and dance popular in Thailand and Laos. Of course we’ll join in!

The village is rural. Really rural. Not that many people speak English, so you have extra reason to put in some effort! Rice farming is the business of the day, and village life is focused around it. You’ll see rice paddies everywhere. Especially during the rainy season, it’s lovely green. The environment is unspoiled. You’ll be in the real Thailand.

Food is great, the style is ‘Isan’: a bit spicy, lots of charcoaled grilled meat, and plenty of herbs. You don’t need or even want to visit a 3 star Michelin restaurant. Our food is better!

Singing is a very popular form of entertainment. Together with folk dancing. Watch it, or join in. Up to you. What can you do in our village? Visit temples and shrines. Watch how people weave baskets, cotton and silk. That’s not a tourist attraction, that’s how they earn their living.
