About the tour

Get ready to head off the beaten path as you join Buay, Eng and Fah on this creative tour! The three guides will lead you to a hidden Thai village in Loei province, 800 km away from Bangkok and right at the border between Thailand and Laos! This fascinating tour will be narrated by Buay & Eng directly from Bangkok while Fah presents from Loei province holding the gimbal. You'll see her own weaving workshop, family heirlooms, traditional fork game and walk with Fah around her village to discover the life of people there. Fah is a 5th generation TaiDam person who has taken over the family business. She is the only person of her age in the village to have this expertise with fabric! Together, they will introduce you to TaiDam people who moved from Vietnam over 100 years ago and settled in the northeast of Thailand.


Meet Eat WalkTalkTour

Eat WalkTalkTour

Sawadee ka! A warm welcome from the Eatwalktalktour team! We love to show you the real Thailand, the people and their communities. 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! We are sure your questions and curiosity would make our tour fun and enjoyable. Chiang Mai Meet our best friends Tina and Phil. 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. They have prepared unique tours, such as talking to a Buddhist monk during temple visits or do craftsman work in the temple. They also would like to take you to see hill tribe people and teach you about their local life. Loei Province Fah was born and raised in the Loei province at Napanad village which is right at the border between Thailand and Laos. She is the 5th generation of Taidam (Minority group) who moved from Vietnam. After getting a degree in Biotechnology, Fah returned home to run a small business, making fabric by cotton. Fah is 25 years old and the only person of her age in the village that has this expertise in fabric. If you would like to contact us then feel free to drop an email to sales1@lets-tour-bangkok.com

Such an interesting tour of Feu's home and business in TaiDam Village. I learnt a lot about the cotton growing and weaving. Thankyou so much

As a vegan I left the tour after a short while. That this was a chicken farm should have been advertised.
