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. 

 

Cock fighting

A cock pit in Ban Ph

Many people will be concerned about the animal cruelty involved in cock fighting.  However it is a popular sport in Thailand and you will see many cocks in wicker cages in the towns and villages being groomed to fight on the weekend.  I have seen cock fighting in the Philippines where they attach razor sharp blades to the cock's spurs and the fights often result in the death of one of the adversaries.  I haven't seen blades used in Ban Pho.  If you want to see a cock fight during your photography and painting holiday we can probably take you to one.
