The Experience

My name is Watchara and I have been a tour guide for 10 years. I am a former Buddhist monk and school with experience in teaching meditation techniques. I am offering a unique Thai experience that allows me to be a part of your wonderful trip to Thailand. The facilities are simple but clean, with a shared toilet and washing facilities, and small bamboo thatch roofed houses for sleeping. There is no electricity in the farm.

It has been a great experience in many ways, I recommend it to anyone who really seeks to connect with local people and their ways of life, they have a lot to teach us about sustainability and our adaptation to the environment without causing harm.
Daily activities vary as they arise, everyone has something to learn and enjoy, always being in touch with nature has been a great challenge to continue learning.
Wat and his family are welcoming and have been attentive at all times so that we do not lack anything.
I would definitely repeat it again 😊

I really loved volunteering on Watcharafarm. The farm is quite far away from Chiang Mai but it was exactly what I needed. I liked the work and the food was delicious. I really recommand this place!

Beautiful countryside, healthy delicious food, wonderful family and an authentic simple daily thai life next to the jungle. Watchara is a very interesting man, who knows really well his country plus he has also been in nearby countries, and he is always willing to share his knowledge in all aspects. His wife is tremendous cook aand very kind and always willing to help, and his daughter is very very smart and a excellent checkers player.
I'll definately want to come back.
