Chiang Mai 16 – 21 Nov 2014
We were very excited to have the Year 6 students from Regent’s Pattaya join us for our four-day cultural, traditional and environmental adventures in Chiang Mai.
After some rest following the fourteen-hour train journey to the Traidhos campus, the children undertook a scenic trek to explore and say, 'Om-ucha-per' to the welcoming coffee-growing Karen tribes, learn their language, culture and traditions, as well as their way of living, by joining them in a home-stay.
The children also investigated the water quality of Doi Inthanon - the tallest peak in Thailand (and the origin of the Chao Phraya River), visited the Royal Projects, stood at “the highest spot in Thailand”, walked the Michael’s Trail, enjoyed the night life at a night bazaar, experienced farm life at the Traidhos Three-Generation Farm, surveyed the lives of the Hua Sai Villagers, and enjoyed Lanna’s uniqueness.
On our last day, we travelled to Baan Panocgoc to study the Hmong. Our gang met with the head of the village, who showed us around his farm and gave us a taste of his grown, ripe, and fresh, tomatoes. We then met with a friendly, elderly woman who demonstrated detailed and exotic hemp weaving, and then we enjoyed a walk down the road to try our skills using cross bows.
All in all, we couldn’t ask for a better way to finish off the trip.
