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.

Wat Prai in Phon Phisai and the grotto  See in Google Map

By the Mekong River in the centre of Phon Phisai there is a temple where huge golden Naga Serpents rearing to the sky.  This is where the Naga Serpents come out of the river each October during the Naga Festival when the balls of fire erupt from the Mekong

Deep beneath the serpents there is a magic mysterious grotto.  When you emerge there is a cascading fountain where you can gain merit by throwing coins into the water.

The grotto is a pleasant kilometre walk along the bank of the river from Thailand Painting Holidays and well worth a visit.
