The community of Ban Rai Kong Khing is located in Hang Dong District, just outside of Chiang Mai. Here visitors are invited to learn about and share in their local culture. Guests can enjoy Northern Thai cuisine, prepared with organically grown ingredients, a traditional massage and much more. The local villagers of Ban Rai Kong Khing have worked together and taken a holistic approach to create a health-oriented community. By using the traditional knowledge of the villagers and blending it with modern medical practices, they have achieved a large degree of self-sufficiency. This knowledge they are happy to share with their guests.
For some years it has been recognised that tourism, if operated in the right way, can be beneficial to rural communities, stimulating local economies and raising the standard of living of farming families. Community-based Tourism (CBT), where local people are active partners with tour operators in establishing and running tour programmes in their communities, is best way of bringing the maximum all-round benefit to farming communities through tourism. Rice is the staple of Thai people and its cultivation and consumption hold a central place in Thai culture.
Combine rice with CBT and you have Rice-culture Tourism. Visitors can spend time in rice-farming communities and learn about the methods and traditions of cultivating rice, the many ways of preparing it and about the culture of the local people.
This brings benefit to the rice farmers and gives visitors and a rich and rewarding experience.
A unique opportunity to get close to ordinary Thai people in their homes and communities and learn about their culture and way of life.
