Racheal's painting holiday review
“Fantastic Painting Experience on the Mekong”
Reviewed 19 January 2016
I had the pleasure of staying for a week at Mekong House with Jeremy and his wife Waree over the Christmas period and had a wonderful time. I was impressed right from the beginning with the quick responses and depth of information provided to initial enquires which was very useful being a solo traveller and slightly apprehensive about my first time to Thailand. I needn’t have worried!
The house is located literally right on the Mekong river with a lovely view from the veranda and rooms across to Laos. My room was lovely, very large and serviced every day to a very high standard. The fast speed internet provided for free was a real added bonus. Jeremy and Waree were lovely, generous hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were very warm and welcoming and were great at taking the guests on outings, to local markets and to local restaurants that really gave an experience of traditional Thai life away from the regular tourist areas. The locals were very friendly with lovely smiles and the evening walks along the Mekong River watching the sunset every night were just amazing and so relaxing and peaceful.
Our painting sessions were fun and rewarding with Jeremy being an attentive and extremely knowledgeable teacher and I took away many useful tips and lots of inspiration to keep it up at home. My only regret was that I didn’t stay longer – I will definitely be back hopefully for a longer stay next time!
