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.

Loy Krathong is a time to forgive, forget and literally launch fresh hopes into the universe. Along with the related Yi Peng events up north, the festival is celebrated across Thailand with no shortage of booze and fireworks to accompany candlelit lanterns floating on water and in the sky. Observed on the full moon of the 12th lunar month, 2014's "Festival of Light" falls on and around November 6.

Local people set off fireworks to see the New Year in along the banks of the Mekong River in Phon Phisai.  We set off fire lanterns to drift high over the river into Lao.  This photo is of the family shop in the village stocked up ready for the celebrations

Phon Phisai is famous for the Naga Fireballs or Mekong Lights.  Glowing balls of fire erupt from the river high into the air.  They occur in late October around the night of Wan Ok Phansa at the end of the rainy season.  This is a good time to visit us for a painting and photography holiday.
