What can I do at the Farmstay?

The Farmstay is a great place for those travellers looking to get away from the city life and live in Thailand for a month, two, or even a year. As we offer free accomodation and meals in exchange for a donation of an animal or money that goes towards a project you will be saving your well earnt money each day.

The Farmstay is a great place to relax and experience the Thai way of living, see their different cultures and customs and get to meet many new people everyday. You will learn to cook Thai cuisine, play with the livestock, feed the pets, pick dinner from the gardens, and meet the kids that come to the school camp.

Apart from these interesting activities you can also take part in your own tours around the Krabi province. Check out what interests you and plan your stay with us at the Farmstay
