What you'll do

My experience is part of the partnership between Airbnb and the Thai Ministry of Interior’s Community Development Department to showcase charming yet lesser-known local communities across Thailand. With us, you'll get to venture out and explore unseen aspects of unique local cultures and ways of life in Thai villages without even having to leave your homes.

In this one-hour experience, we'll bring you to know more about Chiangmai and golden triangle before heading to survey in Ban Mae Hoi and Ban Mae Klang villages, Chaing Mai which locates in Inthanon Mountain - the tallest mountain in Thailand. Back in the 1950s, this area was known as a place for opium plantations. Nowadays, people know this place as a homestay village, coffee plantation, and trekking trail.

My co-host, (Pim+Nu), who is one of the hill tribes and the 3th-gen of the opium gardener will share you to understand more deeply about highland communities after the drug's control. While exploring you can enjoy the vibe of their village then she'll show you how to hand drip like a local do.

Ideal for corporate groups, team-building, anniversaries, and private groups. Contact me for the preferred date/time.

PS.Please be on time as late comers interrupt the session and will not be allowed to join in most cases. Then I'll inbox you how to join another group instead.

I (Happy Bird) and our hilltribe friend (Pim and Nu) work together as local host in trekking trip to the highest mountain in Thailand for many years. We love to share our stories and local livelihoods to all friends around the world who came to visit us since I graduated from Chiangmai University. Pim and Nu are the daughters of the village head who conserves and encourages young people to be proud of their traditional culture (White Karen) . They do organic plantations such as coffee, strawberry, avocado and rice for subsistence living. Furthermore, they have a little bamboo coffee shop that welcomes your next trips.

ขอเขียนเป็นภาษาไทยนะคะ เผื่อมีคนไทยผ่านมาเห็น บอกตรง ๆ ตอนแรกไม่ทราบเลยว่าทางเว็บจะมีแบบ Online Experience ให้เข้าร่วม พอดีสะดุดตาของคุณเบิร์ดมาก ๆ เพราะเกี่ยวกับเชียงใหม่ ชนเผ่าปกาเกอะญอ และสามเหลี่ยมทองคำ ที่เราเคยได้ยินมาตั้งแต่เด็ก ๆ แต่ยังเข้าใจไม่แจ่มชัดว่ามันคืออะไร แล้วก็เรื่องกาแฟ บอกตรง ๆ เหมือนคนโลกแคบเลยค่ะ (อาจเพราะปรกติชอบดื่มชามากกว่า) พอได้รู้ว่าที่เหนือไม่ได้โดดเด่นแค่เรื่องชา แต่มีกาแฟด้วย รู้จักร้านกาแฟดอยช้าง แต่ก็ไม่เลยเอะใจเลยว่ามันมีที่มา และพัฒนามาจากไหน วันนี้ถึงเข้าใจว่า อ่อ มาจากที่นี้นี่เอง

Great virtual trip-- not only did I learn a few things about Northern Thailand, I felt like I had a mini vacation. Highly recommended!

A lovely hour of escapism meeting new people and finding out more about Thailand. Happy Bird is a great host and is very open to questions and helping you plan a trip.

Bird is a true ray of sunshine and he had so many great things to teach us. He is also a talented photographer so his images and videos really helped to transport us to Thailand! It was a great hour.

Bird was very friendly and informative. I went to college in Chiangmai and had lived there for 4 years. Yet, I learned something new from Bird! The quality of his photos and videos were great. It was also nice to "meet" Pim and learned about her life. Next time I visit Chiangmai, I'll definitely take this experience with them in person. Highly Recommended.
