What you'll do

My experience is part of the partnership between Airbnb and the Thai Ministry of Interior’s Community Development Department to showcase charming yet lesser-known local communities across Thailand. With us, you will get to venture out and explore unseen aspects of unique local cultures and ways of life in Thai villages without even having to leave your homes. We can’t wait to show you around!

On this experience, we explore silversmith technique from experienced Thai craftsmen.

Without leaving where you are, we will start the  journey at Silver Temple of Wat Srisuphan Chiangmai, main hall of temple made by hand and each metal relief pattern has its own story to tell.  Our local host will share personal experience on how to build a temple and basic skills of silversmith.

Wua Lai silverware community has always been the residence of silversmith craftsmen since 200 years ago as part of Chiangmai crafts history.
This is all one experience to learn about NorthernThai culture through art & crafts with local architecture.

-Great for teams and groups booking
- Great for celebration!
- Lots of quiz along the journey

I'm Mae, Thai  architect / Interior designer / local hand-crafted products owner. Chiang Mai is always my home so after spending 11 year abroad as an architect and local crafts it's time to go back and share local wisdom to the world.

I've been passionate about local arts and crafts since I was kids. I grew up in Chiangmai, the city of 700yrs history & distinct culture where local crafts influence our way of life.

Chiangmai artisans have a lot to offer with their story of lifetime experience. I'm inviting a local craftsperson to be our co-host of the experience with the same goal of continuing local knowledge of pottery handicraft.

Mae is a fantastic host and what she has to share is so interesting! I especially enjoyed learning about the history and craftmanship and being able to ask questions!

I booked this experience as a gift for a friend. He's a craftsman (woodworking & leather working), and he was absolutely amazed at the skill and intricacy of the silversmithing in Chiang Mai. Mae was an incredible host who made the effort to engage each of her guests. Her passion for sharing the beauty of Thailand with others was clear and made the experience that much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend booking this experience.

Thank you so much, Mae! You gave a lovely tour and did such a great job with the videos. I loved seeing local silversmiths at work and learning how they turn pellets of silver into beautiful artwork.

初めてオンライン体験プログラムに参加しましたが、ホストのMaeさんの案内がとても分かりやすく、チェンマイの新しい発見がありました。今は日本からタイやチェンマイに行けないけど、チェンマイの雰囲気を少しでも味わいたい方、ぜひご参加ください。よい経験をありがとうございました!

I learned so much from Mae about silversmith in Chiangmai. Even though I am Thai and I have been to Chiangmai before, especially to Silver Temple, I didn’t know the entire road has and made silversmith there. I highly recommend this experience. Mae also shares the income from the experiences to local people as well. I can’t recommend enough!

Mae did a great job telling about her personal connection to Wua Lai and sharing the history of the area. Getting to see the area live was wonderful. The temple was beautiful and I enjoyed virtually visiting one of the silver workshops and meeting one of the artisans.
