Know Before You Go
"The best weather is between November-May."
"Please make a booking in advance. You can choose any adventurous activity as you like. We suggest you should stay over to fully experience the living and routine of the Isan people."
"Bai Si Su Khwan is a ceremony based on the belief that everyone is born with an abstract thing called “Khwan”. Khwan is responsible to maintain the life and follow the owner to everywhere. To have a Su Khwan ceremony means to invite Kwan that fled away to come back to the owner. This ceremony is believed to be a way to strengthen the mind, to stay conscious and careful, to be blessed and to live a happy life."
