Lamai's Homestay and Tours
Lamai Homestay is situated in Khopet, an original, unspoilt rice village in the heart of rural Isan. If you are looking to escape the tourists and experience the wonderfully relaxed Thai lifestyle in a rural, working village, then Lamai and Jimmy are waiting to welcome you.
We built the house ourselves - with help from the local villagers. The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens growing bananas, papaya, mango and custard apple. There is a cool, shady barbecue and eating area in the garden and a splashpool nearby to rest tired feet.
As we accommodate a maximum of eight people, you are always assured of the best attention and privacy. It is ideal for families – we have three daughters of our own, – Lizi, Jolie and Ami.
What we offer is a unique experience. You will instantly be welcomed and invited to participate in, or simply enjoy watching every-day life going on around you. You have the genuine Thai experience of living with Lamai and her family – parents, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters. You will also have English input from me (Jimmy). I have lived here for nearly 20 years and have learned all the traditions, the culture, the religion, the superstitions, and can pass the knowledge on to you.
Be it rice planting/cutting, silk or rug making, there’s always something to see. We are also within day-trip distance of Phimai (Khmer temples), Ban Prasat (archaeological site), Khorat city, Dan Kwian (pottery) as well as a range of smaller, lesser-known places of interest.
