During this vacation, you will be staying in The Thai House. It is both unique and authentic. It embodies features representing the distinctive approaches found only in traditional Thai architecture, and at the same time, it fulfills its owners wish to be a welcoming, practical, and quiet haven for first-time guests and those who have stayed there many times over the years.

Importantly, the Thai House provides a peaceful escape from the bustle of the nation's capital, Bangkok, and is described by many visitors and guests as a calm, undisturbed oasis which allows them to relax and unwind. The three separate houses symmetrically linked together.

The first-floor layout consists of three separate houses symmetrically linked together consistent with the traditional practice of keeping extended families living and working together in the same compound to create the sense of belonging to the family. As one stands on the first-floor terrace with a view overlooking the orchard garden, the adjacent structures are no higher than the coconut palms. The tranquility and the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape are both striking and mesmerizing.

Each house has two rooms which can be partitioned into two adjoining bedrooms by an optional opening door or a family suite. Five windows which open out onto the vast lush gardens and verdant orchards provide ventilation. The height of the ceiling also promotes the constant circulation of air thus eliminating the need for air-conditioning.

To combat humidity, electric fans create the gentle breezes needed to cool off the interior. Visitors consistently note the peaceful sleep they experience as they are awakened only by birdsong the next morning. Adjacent to the sleeping quarters is a separate room which serves as the Thai-style bathhouse. The bathroom is equipped with modern western-style facilities. On the lower floor, there is ample indoor dining hall for banquet-style seating for 30 to 50 persons, and the Thai House does receive visitors for lunch.

Location

The Thai House Homestay & Cooking Classes is located in Bang Yai in Nonthaburi Province some 25 kilometers from central Bangkok - a short distance but a very distinctive difference from the city itself. This is a residential town that has both modern touch and greenery area where Chao Praya River acts as a divider of these totally different characteristics.

The hustle and bustle of busy life spread only until the eastern bank of Chao Praya River. Once crossing the river to the western bank, you can feel the peace and enjoy the green view. The Thai House is located on this side. It is also close to Grand Palace area. Everything guests might need is close at hand including international supermarkets, as well as typical markets.
