Leisure and culture

We invite you to participate in a number of cultural events and traditional celebrations to give you some unique and indelible memories to take back home.

The archaelogical sites of Ban Chiang

is part of UNESCO world cultural heritage since 1992 and just two hours drive from EiDi Homestay. You should definitely take the time to visit this extraordinary site just as the Isaan Jurassic Park or the silk weaving mills in Ban Phong.

The surrounding schools all have dance troups

that are called upon for presentations during local celebrations and festivals. You can also attend their presentation and admire the beauty of the local dances. If you would like to learn some steps or a choreography yourself, you can take lessons with an experienced dancer.

Thai cuisine, and especially the food of Isaan,

has a lot to offer to any passionate amateur cook. Our cook will show you how to prepare a few local dishes and thus enrich your menu at home with interesting and delicious meals from the wok.

Immerge in the secrets of the Thai language

If you have some time to allocate to language classes, this is certainly worth-while. However, it also requires time and some effort.

Enjoy one of the many traditional celebrations and national holidays. There are many in Thailand.

Songkran festival on April 13 and 14

This is one of the most important festivals and holidays in the country. On the occasion of Songkran, families gather together and travel through the country to celebrate at their home palce. This also means traffic jams and a huge rush of vehicles, mainly from the megapole Bangkok to the countryside. You can see Pick-up trucks packed to the last square centimeter with people, baggages and gifts for the travelers' families back home.

On December 31, New Year's in our Gregorian calendar,

The same procedure takes place once more.

The Thai people love to celebrate which is why foreign traditions are easily integrated in the calendar of festivities.

Chinese New Year

is celebrated as per the traditional Chinese peasants calendar and takes place between Januarz 20 and February 21 each year. Chinese New Year is an important celebration as well, since many Thai people do have Chinese origins.

Even Christmas celebrations have left a trace

In December, colourfully decorated Christmas trees are erected in the entrance halls of shopping malls and centres, and loudspeakers emit well-known Christmas carols. Nothing but the snow is missing…

If a national celebration or holiday date is on a Saturday or Sunday,

the following labour day is a day off. This is mainly to the benefit of employees in the public and banking sectors or schools. These institutions then remain closed. The large shopping centres and commercial areas, however, are open 365 days a year.
