Karen Farmstay


Live life as a rice farmer in this unique experience hosted by a local from Chiang Rai, Thailand.

It’s easy to take many things for granted. Simply because we have been born conveniently into these things. Rice is one of them.

The Wattasittikul family welcomes you with open arms as they teach you their way of living. Surrounding the farm are the stunning hills of Northern Thailand, with lush bamboo forests and abundant wildlife. From rice farming, to building items and cooking out of bamboo, the family will show you how to respect and live off the land. Adventurous travellers can also trek into the forest at night where you’ll be able to source for crabs and other items for your next meal.

So make your time in Thailand special, and spend a day in the life of a Karen farmer!
