A Different and pleasant experience into Thai culture and ancient heritage
Pick up and drop off in Bangkok Maximum 8 Pax


Throughout a perfect holiday including some cooking lessons, you will enjoy Thai hospitality & spending time with a local Thai family at Baan Chang Tammarind Woodland and exploring a unique beauty of Kanchanaburi. Excursions also include a visit to the ancient capital of Ayuttaya, a must-see UNESCO’s cultural world heritage destination.

Located just 4 kms from the Bridge over the River Kwai, our Baan Chang Tammarind Woodland was built in a contemporary Thai style, simply furnished but cosy atmosphere releasing warm and welcoming Asian spells. The 3 storey house is surrounded by woodland comprising tropical trees and plants some of which stay green all year round like our famous tammarind (makam in Thai). Simple but nice wooden bungalows in the woodland, if needed, is a nice & peaceful place to stay. Our private fitness room is to make sure that you always stay healthy and do not gain weight on your return to your country. It is well equipped with high quality treadmill and bicycle. Weight lifting can be done but no trainer is provided.

In its 2 acres, the house offers plenty of room for gardening and planting which includes mango, jackfruit, coconut palm tree, ruby fruit, banana and custard apple etc. Certain amount of room is also sacrificed for its kitchen garden where a number of tropical herbs are found: holy and sweet basils, kaffir lime, lemon grass, pepper wine, ginger & galangal, chili etc. Various kinds of tropical flowers add some colours to the house and enhance its atmosphere and mood. Dawn and sunset over the charming peaks of limestone mountains in a distance can also be a moment that you never forget. For sure, you would love to wake up to lovely sounds of crickets, birds and fresh morning with beautiful sunlight.

The family has nine dogs together, both Thai and hybrid. They are all friendly and a good company when going for a walk or jogging in the garden.

Leisure activities at/near the house:

• Situated nextdoor is the River Kwai Horse Riding Camp run by half-Thai half-German woman, the 2nd generation operating this family run business. Taught in English, a horse riding course is offered for both the beginner and the experienced (charges based on time of riding)
