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.

I had a quickly time there and it was enriched. It is for a local experience than a "turist" experience. The place is nice and whatchara can show everything they do in local farms. He is cool and good to talk, he shows monk styles also, what I liked. I will come back to finish more stuffs in the future. I just recommend to have a bike while there. Thank you very much for the opportunity :)

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!
