Thailand Painting Holidays

paint on the banks of the Mekong River

A wonderful combination of painting tuition and Thai culture in a small guest house on the banks of the Mekong River at Phon Phisai in NE Thailand.  During the dry cool months of October to January each year the guesthouse provides a combination of painting tuition and Thai rural culture experience to 4 guests each week.

The visits are individually tailored to provide the level of tuition and Thai experience that each visitor seeks.  This website contains details of the tuition, experiences and facilities together with prices and booking facilities.

The Terrace Outside we have a paved terrace for outside meals and painting under a pergola with lovely views of the river.  The weather is mild and dry during the Thai winter so most painting is done from the Terrace .

Surrounds

There is a quiet narrow road along the bank ofthe river from Mekong House to Phon Phisai town centre.  It is ideal for walks or bike rides.  We can supply bicycles for guests to use.

The local people have small allotments along the banks of the river during the dry winters when the river is low.  They grow vegetables in the rich soils which are covered when the water rises in the wet season.

Many small fishing boats are moored along the banks below Mekong House and fishermen can be seen working with their nets on the river throughout the day.   We plan to purchase our fish directly from the fishermen.

The Mekong is so strong and wide that it has an almost uncanny presence.  The local people gather in small groups leaning against the railings watching and chatting in the mornings and evenings.  You will find that you are always drawn to this mighty river.
