We're going to start with a tour of the village and the village market. See village life along the Mekong River. Meet the friendly villagers along the way. They might not be able to speak English but they love to interact with foreigners! At the market we'll share our knowledge of the local vegetables and fruits. Some of those you might have never seen or tasted before! We'll buy all the ingredients fresh. and you can meet the farmers who grow the fruits and vegetables by themselves. At the house we'll start preparing a traditional Thai curry. We start from scratch with preparing the curry paste, slicing all the vegetables and meat/fish (or vegetarian/vegan on request) and prepare some side dishes, like stir fried morning glory. While the curry is cooking we'll prepare dessert. Depending on the season this will be sticky rice with mango or banana with coconut. While cooking and eating we love sharing our experience of living in a small village as a Thai-Western couple raising two young kids. For us it's essential that you feel at home in our house! There's also an opportunity to stay the night, please contact us for more information.
I'm born and raised in Phonphisai. I grew up with very little. My parents always worked hard in the rice field so our family could survive. We lived a very simple and basic life. After university I came back to my village to support the local community by starting my volunteer organization. The main mission is to empower youngsters to dream big. Through teaching English the volunteers inspire them to love learning and studying. Our organization supports the local community through English teaching project and providing supplies for disabled children and their families.

Pickup bus station Pick from Phonphisai bus station - direct bus line from Nong Khai
The market we're going to visit is one you won't see in the tourist areas. See the true authentic Thailand. Our village is 45 km from the nearest big town Nong Khai. Tourist often stay in Nong Khai but the true countryside is found when you venture off the main roads and explore the small villages. Prepare the meal in a classic Thai house, close to the rice field. You can't get closer to the source than that!
