A homestay in Thailand

Our visit to a homestay village was the highlight of our trip.

Thailand really is the land of smiles, we were welcomed by young and old and treated to dancing – joining in was optional! The musical instruments were wonderful too with a couple of the drums covered with python skins from roadkill. We made our own rice puddings wrapped in banana leaves and steamed, our cooking teacher was very patient. We also got the chance to watch and try out basket making and weaving and had a go with the rice thresher.

Having been to Thailand 30 years ago I was delighted to discover that despite the country having become so much more accessible to foreign tourists it and its people are still so unspoilt and happy leading much simpler lives than we do in the west. A homestay is definitely the best way to get to know how life is lived in rural Thailand and the warmth of the welcome we received will stay with us all.
