Rice Culture Tours

Another kind of Culture Holiday

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.
