To be Thai For a While

    Day One


Check-in
Warm welcome, traditional Thai way. Each guest will receive "Mor-Hom," a Northern style shirt as a souvenir from our hotel.
11:00 am





Preparation for "Leang-Pra-Pane".
"Leang-Pra-Pane" is an everyday duty of those Thais that are living by the principle of Buddhism. By theory, Thai Monks are allowed to consume food given to them by the people. Therefore, one of the duties of a Buddhist believer is to bring food offering to the monk every day before 12 noon. Enhancing the traditions and beliefs of Thai people, Buddhist monks can relatively keep Buddhism alive and keep Thailand rich with cultures.
12:00 noon
Northern style picnic by the Wat-padarapirom Menu: Seasoned grilled chicken, spicy papaya salad, sticky rice and much more delicious traditional northern food.
03:00 pm

Tourists will not only get to see the preservation of a unique way of life but also the natural wonder of buffaloes.

Sai-Bard at the nearby temple
A second method for making the food offering to the monks is wake up at the crack of the dawn to find them scattered around the city. The picture of orange roped monks walking in lines all over the city in the mist of morning atmosphere is one that should not be missed. Not only does it represent the culture of Thailand but also the continuity of a way of life that will remain till the end of time. Guests will have their pick of a variety of flowers for a later activity.
