Om Goi project

Introduction

Located in the beautiful northern highlands of Thailand, this illuminating yet challenging journey gets travellers up-close and personal with traditional Thai ethnic minority life. Meet and work alongside the locals in a remote village just beyond Om Goi Town, and learn such local skills like cooking, basket weaving and even bamboo-bicycle making! Spend each day giving back on a community project and local Maeramit Luang School – highlighted with special opportunities to connect with locals during nightly homestays in the village.
