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. 


Snake oil salesmen

Of course I have heard the term "snake oil salesmen" before, but it wasn't until I came to Thailand that I actually met snake oil salesmen.  They drive into the village in their pickups and take out their snakes.  They soon have a large crowd around them.  When its big enough they start their pitch and sell small bottles of ................. snake oil, plus other items which I don't understand.  I suspect they are herbal medicines.  If they are around during your holiday that would be great.
