Day with the locals
Staying at Resotel Baan Sanook means you stay close to the local people and daily see the authentic, sometimes primitive lifestyle of Isan people.
We encourage our guests to go out on a hike or ride on scooters on small tracks/roads through rice fields and villages. Enjoy lunch at local shop in one of the villages and experience the hospitality and friendly attitude of the Isan people.
But you can even get more close to Isan lifestyle; it depends on the time of the year but why not join the locals with planting or cutting rice plants?? I can assure you that after an hour being in the the ricefileld your respect for the people doing this daily is only growing.
Not the type of person to jump in a rice field?? Not to worry, pay interest at people is already highly appreciated. Or just walk into a school and see how life is organised there…….. since the number of visiting foreigners in Isan is relatively small compared to rest of Thailand, teachers will welcome you…..
We even have guests donating goods taking from oversees to schools.
Much is possible and as always, ask your host or hostess for details…….
