The charm of traveling is not all about getting to physically witness beautiful places or atmosphere but also about getting to closely experience the people, the culture and the way of life of each place. To experience the community that has merged both health and cultural tourism together for a stronger and more sustainable community while surrounded by Lanna simplicity and beauty, Ban Rai Kong Khing is recommended. Its highlight activity is using locally grown herbs to disseminate ancient local wisdom that promote better health like “Yam Khang” or Lanna’s unique therapeutic combination of heat, massage, and the local wisdom on physiology, a wonderful physical and mental detoxification after having to deal with all the city’s chaos, toxic pollution or stress at work.
Besides experiences that cannot be found in daily life in the big city, travelers will have a chance to help community members to generate income and promote the sustainable preservation of traditions, way of life and local wisdom by supporting local products and services, for instance, Khan Tok (a set of traditional Northern Thai delicacies) served with fresh mint tea, one of the herbal plants homegrown along the fence line. Together with, travelers will also learn and try growing various types of herbal plants in the common area of the village to further be processed into local products for sales or take a bike ride along the road in the village to admire the peaceful atmosphere and nature, particularly at the lush tree tunnel in the village.
