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!

My co-host and I will lead you to my beautiful community hidden in the mountains and nature of North EasternThailand.

During this Experience you will see some of my old family heirlooms that have been in my family for multiple generations.

We will tell you about my people the "Tai dam" minority group that came from Vietnam. We will show you how we make a living & the traditions that we have kept while being here.

I will share with you our weaving workshop that's been ran by 5 generations of women in our family.

Next, I will take you to the community museum which is in the same area of my house where we run a shop with goods that we weave in our village.

I will also show you how to play some Traditional folk games and talk with some local TaiDam village who are hanging out in the area.

What a wonderful experience! I love the live streaming! We were invited to ask questions/offer comments, and the hosts were good at making our time with them very interactive. We got to see a sweet, small farm and a nice museum filled with family heirloom treasures of textiles and objects from the past, then we were taken to visit these talented weavers who showed us the process of deseeding cotton, then spinning, dyeing, weaving. Very cool. They biked to a restaurant and we got to watch how they make noodles from scratch---the food looked delicious. This online experience totally made me want to go to Thailand.

If you are particularly interested in rural life in a corner of Thailand or traditional textile-making then this place is for you. I was shown around a rice farm with free range chickens, it’s private textile and traditional crafts museum which included superbly well-preserved 400 year old clothing. The same techniques, including a traditional black dye, are used there today to make fabrics. Traditional games and practices were featured. Everyone was so very nice to me and eager to answer my questions.

Two friends and I did a private session as our virtual holiday trip together and this experience did not disappoint. We saw the farm and the various detailed steps of the cotton cloth making process. And even got to go to the community center to see demonstrations of the various games. It was all so interesting!

This is a great way to learn about a small traditional village in Thailand. The host generously shared stories and her home with us so we get a sense on what it is like.
