Learning & Fun

United Kingdom

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Akriah Garden. I learnt a lot about farming, construction and Thai and Turkish culture. I like one of the family by Suha, Sara and Alas. They are very accomodating hosts as they live simply with lots of fun. You have many opportunities to go out with them or by yourself to do what you please. I will be back here 😬😬❤️

Suha and his family are amazing people with a amazing project, was very nice to be able to be part of this inicial moment. Was my first experience with Worldpackers and definitely i will keep awesome memories of this two weeks that i spend there.

Suha e sua família são pessoas maravilhosas com um projeto incrível, foi muito bom poder fazer parte desse momento inicial. Foi minha primeira experiência como Wolrdpackers e definitivamente vou levar ótimas memória e histórias para contar das duas semanas que passei por lá.

Suha and Sarah are the best hosts you could hope for. This was my first experience with Worldpackers and they made me feel like part of the family. I'm extremely thankful for my time at Akirah garden. The work was laid back and we had music playing the whole time so it was enjoyable. Everyone worked together as a team and we had fun while doing it. On days off you can check out close by tourist attractions like a massive cave or even go rock climbing if you're up for it. I can't wait to come back and help in the future. Thank you guys for providing me with such a great experience!

The few days I stayed at Akirah garden was some of the best days in my life. I wish I could have stayed longer but now I know I have to come back soon. Suha and his family are amazing what they are trying to create is incredible ..and you could be a part of it. I stayed in a little bamboo house which i loved! They just finshed the outside toilet and shower. so, i had my private bathroom:p We were just starting to build a house for more volunteers and a Yoga room. I could keep writing about all the things Suha was planning to build but I think it's better if you go see it by yourself.:)

It was great time working together with Zara.She just stayed short term but still helped us a lot.She helped us about wood work by taking out the nails from old wood,washing them,helping out in the farm,playing with my child feeding chickens and many more..
Also another precious point is ; she was my first volunteer from 'worldpackers' and i was her first host.
So i would recommend Zara to every hosts who really needs help.Hope to see her here again..

About the host

We've left the city to start a small self-sufficient farm in the outskirt of Chiang Mai. Right now, we're focusing on building wooden houses for more people to stay. So we're not doing much farming or permaculture at the moment. It's also the dry season now. If you're interested in building with wood, you can come and help us. We can provide a free tent or a bamboo hut, and will have wooden rooms later on. We don't work long hours as we'd like...
