About the tour

In every early morning , the Buddhist monk will travel out of monastery on the road. Local people will wait for the Buddhist monk and offering food to them. You will witness the ritual of Buddhism ways in Chiang Mai. Offering food is one of the oldest and most common rituals of Buddhism ways. Learning about what is the philosophy behind that and what are the things we offer to the monk. After offering food, the monk will simply pay for you by tradition, a short verse recited in pali (a language spoken at the time of the Buddha).

Our team are in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and we plan to have more friends in other destinations. Bangkok Buay and Eng are sisters. We grew up in a rural small town, Northeast of Thailand. Later, we moved and have lived in Bangkok for over 25 years. We have worked in the tourism business for over 16 years. We are proud of our rich culture and heritage. We love to show our landmarks, temple ruins, hidden communities, small markets, and rural areas of Thailand (farm, village). We also like to meet, talk and see how the local craftsmen work or go to the market to buy local food. We are looking forward to meeting you on Heygo and perhaps in person one day!

Tina and Phil were born and raised in Chiang Rai but have lived in Chiang Mai for over 30 years. They love to meet new people and share their insights into Lanna's culture.

Learning about the importance that both parents and the boy must be in accord for him to become a novice monk and when he completes his studies he may return to his other life or remain a monk.

First hand experience of the ritual of donating food and drinks to the local monks was a wonderful exercise. We were included in the donations and each step and action was clearly explained. It was a brilliant experience.
