3-Day Loei Package
Day 01 Loei – Wang Saphung
In the early afternoon, you will be picked up at Loei airport. Approximately a 20 - minute drive to the village of Wang Saphung. You will start with a biking-tour around the farmer village (or if you don't want to bike or you are not able to bike, we will take care for a traditional "Song Taew" transportation). You will not spot many tourists in this village, the local are happy to welcome you in their houses or just want to say hello and take some photos with you. Bike quietly along the village, lay eyes on rice fields and the way of life of the local farmers. You will also visit some Thai farmer families at their old traditional wooden houses as well a small traditional Thai kindergarten school (not on holidays and weekends). Then it’s time to visit the Sirila Tent Camp. The last 2 km is an off road and we will use bikes to reach the farm (or by tractor). The farm is fully self-supporting, there's no electricity (only some solar) and they manage to pump their own water. It’s amazing to see how they can do so many things all by themselves. After arrival, there will be a special welcome by the Thai farmers family and a special welcome drink.
Walk around the farm and receive an explanation on what is growing here. The plantations include agar wood trees, pineapples, dragon fruit, mango, coffee, cashew nuts, date palms, macadamia trees and much more. It will take you about 20 to 30 minutes before you will be back at "The Hut" for your BBQ. If you are lucky enough, you will experience a spectacular sunset. When darkness falls, a campfire will be set, torches and candles will be lit up which creates a romantic ambiance. Have a goodnight's sleep in a comfy safari tent.
